IFMAFMCC Eastern Live Webinar – “Un-Sensored! Analytics for Lower-Tech Facilities”
by Nitin Bangera & Dwayne Henclewood
Many commercial enterprises are highly dependent on predictive analytics to save money, improve performance, and provide value to customers. Facility management (FM), too, has begun to leverage vast amounts of data collected by sensors to make intelligent decisions. However, this capability generally requires software sophistication and real-time data which are mostly seen in urban and specialized settings. The overall poor state of public infrastructure and facilities across the country underscores that FM has not yet fully benefited from the information revolution. Public and mission-based organizations, even with their large, diverse facility portfolios, tend to lag their for-profit counterparts in using advanced data analytics to make real-time or strategic decisions. Older infrastructure, a lack of intelligent systems, and the fear of costly solutions may be holding them back.
A recent project by a large US government agency with more than 28,000 buildings and 50 million square feet of space nationwide showed that a probabilistic approach to portfolio management can inform and improve capital planning and facility operations decisions, even without sensor-based or real-time data. This presentation will highlight macro-level portfolio insights that can be gleaned from limited real property, operational, and maintenance logs from a standard computer maintenance management system. This approach is especially relevant to mission-based and budget-constrained facility portfolio managers. Attendees will come away with a greater understanding of Bayesian machine learning and how it can provide prescriptive or predictive analytics on a case-by-case basis, regardless of whether they manage high-tech facilities or lower-tech, un-“sensored” portfolios.
- Understand the types of data analytics available
- Recognize the limitations of data analytics in the facility world
- Learn about probabilistic modeling and its application in our use case
- Apply these lessons to your “unsensored” facility portfolio
