Find out from a what a perfect day for a Facility Manager looks like.

Optimizing the space for employees

Imagine for a second, you walk into the office. You take your place at your desk, open your laptop or PC and see graphs showing your electrical distribution operating at peak performance.

As you look up, you see your colleagues, some of them drinking their coffee and others concentrating on their work.

Productivity is at peak since the environment you have created is comfortable - air conditioners are running at perfect temperature; space has been optimized for every employee.

Creating a sustainable facility

You conduct a monthly review of your facility’s sustainability and efficiency metrics.

There are no surprises and all trends indicate that your facility is operating in a highly sustainable manner.

Tackling facility issues

Suddenly, your phone beeps.

A maintenance check you had scheduled has been completed.

You were notified a month back that this asset was on the verge of causing critical failures.

Today, you didn’t need to worry since you already took corrective measures.

The day ends.

You are the last one to leave.

As you walk out, the lights automatically switch themselves off and you are reassured that your resources are optimized, and your facility will let you know if any issues crop up.

You smile. It has been a perfect day.

Sound impossible? It isn’t, if you master your resources!

Using IoT and data 

It is estimated that in 2020, the world has 1.3 bn IoT (Internet of Things) sensors deployed worldwide - a 78.8% increase from 2015.

IoT enables a wealth of data to be collected from disparate devices that can be used in various ways to optimize your facility. 

Your facilities are constantly communicating, and they exhibit the signs of faults much before they occur.

All it takes to optimize your facility is to listen to the signs. However, you still need ways to analyze the data.

Schneider Electric helps make life easier

Schneider Electric is committed to helping create smart facilities that utilize resources to perfection, making life easier.

Managing risk to achieving operational excellence - and maximizing employee protection and financial efficiency - become easier once you have the tools to listen to your facility.

You can master your resources, from critical infrastructure to electrical distribution.

Schneider Electric's EcoStruxureTM Advisors evaluate and analyze the live data from connected assets to identify threats and provide power to make critical decisions, smarter.

Their advisors help master resources and easily create a facility of the future. 

From there, having a perfect day is within arm’s reach.
