Integrating permanent equipment tracking with electronic operations and maintenance manuals

Abstract: Permanent equipment may be delivered months in advance of installation on a construction project. It may be received, stored off-site, transported to onsite storage, installed, and tested. During construction, there are obvious advantages to knowing where each piece of equipment is at any given time. During operation, the owner of the project needs to know the status of equipment during operation and be able to find the proper operating and maintenance information when required. We have completed a trial system on a wastewater treatment plant project that uses bar codes to track equipment from receipt to installation, and then is used to interface with an electronic operation and maintenance (O and M) manual. The O and M manual can be accessed in a variety of ways, including bar codes on the equipment, selecting the equipment on electronic drawings, and pointing and clicking on digitized photographs. The interface to the electronic O and M manual can be a valuable added service to the owner
