Using a Rules-Based-Approach to Manage Large Real Estate Holding Data

Throughout the world, many companies and large organizations have countless real estate holdings that require lifecycle and asset tracking.

Managing the sheer number of real estate holdings and assets (including rooms, people, workstations, etc.) would be an impossible task without an enterprise asset management system that is being properly maintained. When business decisions are made, it is imperative that the data used to track each resource is accurate and complete. Irregularities in the system will cause poor decisions being made on faulty data. It is imperative that these data irregularities are found as soon as possible to reduce the effort and costs involved in rectifying the issues. Also, these systems are live systems being fed by updates from 3rd party vendors and contractors. Only 15% of companies are very confident in the quality of external data supplied to them. At 1Spatial we use validation, integration, automation and our rules-based approach to build strong data infrastructures, leading to better outcomes and making your data smarter. This four-part webinar series will focus on many of the implementations of 1Spatial’s Facility Management Data Quality & Integration Solution.

1Spatial Facility Solution Overview

This webinar will provide an overview of 1Spatial and the different implementations available of our Facility Management Data Quality & Integration Solution. Our Facilities Management Data Quality & Integration Solution is a three-prong approach.

  • First off, it focuses on data coming into the system, like CAD drawings, running through an automated rules engine ensuring the data meets the structure, format and quality to be properly ingested into the asset management system.
  • The second prong is to validate the asset management system itself to verify all data is correct and each resource and asset are correctly associated.
  • The final prong is to ensure the data is kept up to date by providing automated workflows to integrate updated datasets into the asset management system.

CAD and Asset Management System Data Supply Chains

This includes understanding the incoming CAD drawings validity with a workflow to reject drawings that will not properly upload or render within the asset management system. Also, we identify irregularities within the asset management system on a nightly basis to ensure those irregularities are resolved in a timely manner. Validating the complete asset management system enables organizations to make more informed decisions by trusting and understanding their data quality.

Facility GIS and Asset Management System Synchronization

Traditionally, facility data has been created using CAD software and managed through database systems like ARCHIBUS and asset management systems like IBM’s TRIRIGA and Maximo. However, Facility Managers want better visualization software, indoor navigation and to be able to perform geospatial analytics. These high-end analytics and visualization tools can be achieved within a GIS (Geographic Information System). To have accurate analytical results the data needs to meet data quality standards. After data is migrated into a GIS system, the data needs to be kept in sync with the asset management systems. The 1Integrate tools can help make life easier by automating the migration and synchronization of your spatial and non-spatial systems. The tools will also give you a status report of the quality of your data at any given point in time.

Integrating CAD Data with GIS

Without the proper tools, migrating facility data into a GIS can be a very tedious, expensive, and time-consuming manual project. This leads to one-time migration projects causing data to get out of sync. This presentation will show how using 1Integrate automation workflows can automate most of the migration from CAD to GIS which can enable the synchronization between disparate systems like CAD and GIS on a more regular cycle.
