Integrating Information of facility management system{Comments Off on Integrating Information of facility management system}


This article title ” Information Integration for Facility Management”, is an interesting peer review article because this article talks about the basic integration of a facility management system to better support the operation of a hotel business. The information system built involves two different type of data which are graphical and alphanumerical. By combining these two data into a single system the developer was able to create a better Computer-Aided Facility Management system. The article continues on describing the system requirement and architecture of the CAFM. The developer apply a two model system to the CAFM which includes a traditional client server model and a web-based model. The developer also integrate different departments into this system.

I find this article interesting because of the fact that the article goes over how these developer integrate different part of the business system into just one system. It would seem that by doing this all of the information stored about the business is constant and precise. It would also seem that by integrating the systems together the hotel business was able to be more efficient in its daily business activities. I think that all businesses should try and do the same to their business database by combining their department database the business can do improve overall.
