In Smart FM, we integrate the systems, processes, technologies and personnel to enhance the management of a building’s facilities. The course aims to equip learners with an overview of the Smart FM infrastructure, deployment of the IoT, procurement of the Smart FM systems and also the integration of the Smart FM system as part of the digital delivery in the facilities management of the building. Sensors, meters, and various devices are networked in the building to form an intelligent Smart FM and Energy Management System. The learners will also be introduced to the key modules in CMMS and the usage of IT in predictive maintenance of the building systems.
