archifm.net facility management software solution is a genuine BIM based CAFM / CMMS system. In the following we introduce each of the main functionalities in detail helping you get to know how to operate your facilities more efficiently.
Let's start with the area management module. An easy way to approach the required site is from Google Earth, even from a very wide scope you can easily locate to the particular building to operate. Now we focus on our own headquarters located in the renown Graphisoft Park on the banks of the river Danube in Budapest, Hungary. Once the particular building is found some basic data immediately appears on the screen helping you to have instant info on the building like the total area and building name. By clicking this message ArchiCAD will start automatically loading the particular building model with all of its BIM data and then you can immediately switch to archifm.net directly from here.
Let's see how our renown BIM concept works in practice, how ArchiCAD 's BIM model and the alphanumeric FM database of archifm.net are working together in seamless integration, how all data are kept synchronized and up to date in parallel both in the FM database and in the graphics.
With just a single click in ArchiCAD you can easily login to the related archifm.net database directly from the graphics. Select the Facility Management module from the intuitive central menu of archifm.net and then the building model and FM database can easily be assigned together. All you have to do for this purpose is to start synchronization of your building from ArchiCAD and then -- according to the given rules - all zones and objects will be converted into archifm.net's FM database in a structured way. Now all of your wings, floors and zones are available for further management in a well defined hierarchy with all of their details. When clicking a zone on the left related objects appear on the right. Just click one object here and it will immediately be located in the 3D model of ArchiCAD where not just the particular element but many of its important technical data will appear.
Remember, all FM data are originated directly from the BIM model thus becoming available for lifecycle building management in a high end CAFM / CMMS system!
Let's change the inventory number of one particular object in ArchiCAD and see what happens in the FM database. Again, just one click in ArchiCAD in order to synchronize changes made here will result in a full update in the alphanumeric FM database immediately thus keeping all information synchronized coherently in the FM database and in the graphics. Switching to archifm.net from ArchiCAD you see the inventory number modified in ArchiCAD is updated on the parameter sheet belonging to this object.
Now let's see an example how the powerful graphical reporting capabilities of archifm.net work in the practice. Handling tenants in archifm.net means that all important data belonging to different tenants, such as size of occupied areas, rooms, rental fees and periods etc ... are stored in the central database. When running a tenant report in the system you can easily generate different sets of data filtered and organized according to the given rules. Obviously, being in full synchronization with a true BIM based system, these reports can even be graphical thus making them available in easily absorbable visual form. Just one click on the tenant report command in archifm.net will result in colorized floor plans in ArchiCAD representing occupations by tenants, delivering many important information on names, sizes, free spaces available for renting and so on...
