Proper CAD standards establish readable floorplans for your entire population, not solely architects. Establishing and maintaining standards is a crucial, but often overlooked aspect of your CAFM / IWMS solution success. With proper floorplan polylining, standards and discipline breakouts, you'll prepare yourself for success.
Most CAFM / IWMS solutions utilize CAD polylining in their drawings to represent the spaces within a floorplan. The process utilized is dictated by your desired outcome. Raptor specializes in IFMA, BOMA and Modified BOMA methods.
Identifying spaces within a floorplan requires adherence to a labeling convention. Your CAFM / IWMS solution will dictate these requirements which may be MTEXT, Blocks w/ Attributes, or Plain Text. Incorporating a numbering convention ensures uniqueness as well.
Ensuring that your existing conditions match your current floorplan configurations ensures a strong foundation for CAFM, IWMS, Security, Health & Environmental Safety and Real Estate Portfolio systems and calculations. Our team of U.S.A. based experts will help ensure that you are up-to-date.
Change is inevitable, especially when it comes to organizations attempting to keep up with today's demands. Floorplans are changed for a variety of reasons including layout changes, repurposing of spaces, or simply to correct inaccuracies in layouts.
When preparing drawings for use in a CAFM / IWMS solution, CAD polylining is just element to your success. Maintaining consistency, accuracy and completeness matter. Having a solid understanding of your drawing state and CAFM / IWMS preparedness is crucial for success.
Maintaining drawings requires a solid foundation. By breaking out the disciplines (Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Structural, and CAFM), you can improve floorplan performance while maintaining consistency amongst your entire portfolio.
Organizing your drawings and related documents is critical not only for easy retrieval, but for ensuring that you have the correct version of the document. There are lots of document management tools in the marketplace, but we specialize in utilizing existing technology and your conventions.
Do you and/or your team need to utilize AutoCAD, but find the hundreds of commands, sub-commands, system variables and short-cuts too complex? Let us help you decipher the tools that will make your team successful without the "boil the ocean" approach. Targeted training will maximize your results.
