The term “Facility” means something that is built, installed or established to serve a purpose, which, in general, is every “tangible asset that supports an organization.” i.e. real estate property, buildings, technical infrastructure (HVAC), lighting, transportation, IT-services, furniture, and other user-specific equipment and appliances.
MAJOR CHALLENGES FACED BY FACILITY MANAGEMENT INDUSTRY
The major challenges faced by the Facility Management Industry are as follows:
- Safe functionality of the Facility: Facility Managers solve this challenge by scheduling regular preventive maintenance. Preventive maintenance is one of the most common procedures performed on a facility’s equipment or assets in order to keep facility managers ahead of a potential disaster instead of behind it. The primary goal of preventive maintenance is to mitigate or avoid the consequences of asset failure by following timely, planned guidelines to prevent equipment and machinery breakdown.
- Corrective maintenance is another common task performed in facilities, commonly thought of as a set of tasks performed to identify, isolate, and rectify a fault so that the failed asset can be restored to operational condition.
- Energy efficiency management: Facility managers look for an enterprise approach to energy and sustainability management that can help them gain control over the use of energy, water, gas, and other resources. Understanding the organization’s energy, carbon, and gas inventory are essential to reducing energy usage and cost. It’s also vital for reducing a facility’s carbon footprint and preparing for compliance with future regulations.
- Compliance standards management: Facility managers need to proactively coordinate, manage, and monitor internal and external risks associated with facility regulatory compliance. Such a compliance program is needed to stay one step ahead of the ever-changing, stringent regulatory codes and regulations, and to protect an organization from calamities, fines, and penalties.
- Maintenance of ageing assets and infrastructure: Another big challenge faced by facility managers is dealing with ageing assets, equipment, and infrastructure. Over time, assets and buildings age and despite our best efforts, naturally begin to wear out. Eventually, the ageing process begins to affect facility operations. Proper inspections, warranty tracking, deficiency management, analysing replacement costs of the equipment, budgeting, and planning for these inevitabilities helps to soften the blow, maintain safe working conditions, and ultimately keep them from draining corporate revenue.
- Cost control:To help keep costs in check, regular monitoring of the maintenance budget is one the most critical activities to perform. Getting quick and easy access to cost reports can be a major challenge for facility managers. In every organization, this data often resides in so many different tools or systems that generating the reports becomes a very time consuming and difficult task for the facility manager.
