The Facility Manager’s Perfect Day

Imagine for a second, you walk into the office. You take your place at your desk, open your laptop or PC and see graphs showing your electrical distribution operating at peak performance.

As you look up, you see your colleagues, some of them drinking their coffee and others concentrating on their work. Productivity is at peak since the environment you have created is comfortable; air conditioners are running at perfect temperature; the space has been optimised for every employee.

You get up for a monthly review of your facility’s sustainability and efficiency metrics. There are no surprises and all trends show that your facility is on its way to becoming the most sustainable facility in the city or perhaps in the entire country.

Suddenly, your phone beeps. A maintenance check you had scheduled has been completed. You were notified a month back that this asset was on the verge of causing critical failures. Today, you didn’t need to worry since you already took corrective measures.

The day ends. You are the last one to leave. As you walk out, the lights automatically switch themselves off and you are reassured that your resources are optimised, and your facility will let you know if any issues crop up.

You smile. It has been a perfect day.

Sounds impossible? It isn’t, if you master your resources.

It is estimated that in 2020, the world will have 1.3 bn IoT sensors deployed worldwide, a 78.8% increase from 2015. IoT enables a wealth of data to be collected from disparate devices that can be used in various ways to optimise your facility. Your facilities are constantly communicating, and they exhibit the signs of faults much before they occur. All it takes to optimise your facility is to listen to the signs. However, you still need ways to analyse this data.
