This wiki was created to keep Physical Plant Services and Residences staff up-to-date on the progress of the Facilities Management Software project. This wiki is public and does not require any sign on details; as such, it is also open to anyone in the Queen's Community who is interested in the project. This wiki will be updated on a regular basis. Details regarding the training format and schedule will also be posted to this wiki as soon as they become available.
What is the Facilities Management Software Project?
Physical Plant Services (PPS) and Residences are partnering on a project to replace our current Facilities Management Application (Maximo) with a new software called Archibus. In 2014, Campus Planning implemented the Archibus Space Management module, the current project will expand the University's usage of Archibus by implementing the Maintenance Management module.
This project gives PPS and Residences an opportunity to review and improve our current business processes, reduce our dependency on inefficient paper-based processes, and improve our customer service. The project started on September 13 and is currently on track to meet its August 22, 2016 go-live date! A project timeline is available on this wiki.
A project team, including members from PPS, Residences, the Project Portfolio Office (ITS), and BRG (our implementation partner), has been formed to implement the software.
For more details regarding the project, please read John Witjes' article, published in the December 2015 PPS Newsletter.
Please consult the PPS website and this wiki for updates regarding the progress of the project.
