Drawings Maintenance & Updating

Keep your drawings and data accurate all the time

Update and maintain your drawings on an on-going basis.

IWMS and CAFM systems are built on accurate drawings. Many calculations and reporting extract information from drawings and inaccurate or out-of-date drawings lead to improper operations. IWMS and CAFM managers agree that one of their biggest challenges is to maintain the accuracy of their drawings. Most medium to large organizations undergo changes frequently. Changes happen in two ways: minor changes such as changing the size of a door may be done by internal staff without an external design company’s involvement. Oftentimes, changes occur because of planned remodeling projects. A design company is hired to develop a set of new design documents. This process generates design drawings at various milestones in design. The construction process also may produce a set of drawings and related documents. The actual construction may differ from design documentation, and this would be reconciled to produce the as-built documentation.

Often, the remodeling projects need to be field verified to reconcile the discrepancies in construction and to produce the as-builts. On-going updating and periodic field survey are integral to VLogic’s approach to handhold our customers as they manage their IWMS and CAFM systems.

"…Our contract also requires them to up-date and modify the drawings and database on a regular basis. The alternative is to perform these services in-house which is expensive and impractical. We believe that “outsourcing” is a cost-effective approach that places minimal demand on our internal staff”

Life-safety Compliance Documentation

Certain facilities such as healthcare are subject to periodic inspection leading to their accreditation. It is critical that their drawings depicting life safety compliance be kept current all the time. The lack of accuracy in documentation and its easy accessibility can lead to loss of accreditation or worse impact safety. VLogic’s program to continuously update and maintain life-safety documentation can alleviate that concern.
