Rice University recently implemented the FAMIS facilities management
system. It is widely used among facilities groups in higher education.
We are using it for work orders, purchasing, inventory, asset
management, preventive maintenance, capital projects, and space. It
interfaces with Banner, ldap, and the Housing & Dining system. The
application runs on an Oracle 9iAS stack, and we are using Oracle
Discoverer for reporting. We wrote a java app to add workflow for
customer requests and reporting. Several schools are using it with PDAs
- we will be working on that in the next year. The implementation was
a collaborative project with Facilities Engineering & Planning, IT, and
Director, Enterprise Applications
