MicroMain Capital Planning Asset Management System helps organizations develop detailed capital plans – taking into account repair and replacement costs, urgency, and future needs.
Consultants and end-users can both benefit from using capital planning software to generate and compare costs across multiple scenarios. CPAM has features that assist with cataloging deferred maintenance and determining building component lifecycles.
Get Detailed Cost Estimates
At the heart of MicroMain’s Capital Planning software is the ability to develop detailed cost estimates for asset repair and replacement. These estimates then become the basis for producing short, mid, and long-term capital plans. In addition, Capital Planning is used by building managers to gather and store key information required to create their industry-standard Facility Condition Index (FCI).
One of the challenges of capital planning is how to consistently assess facility, building, and building component conditions across your organization. Capital Planning helps you set standards for this process in several ways. First, the software comes pre-loaded with standard:
- Building space types
- Maintenance types
- Component classes
- Component ratings
Using Capital Planning’s rating/class score you can ensure staff and contractors are using the same criteria for assessments. The score is created by taking the component class value (such as energy or safety compliance) and adding it to the component rating value (poor, good, excellent). This comparative score is then used to create priorities (from 1-10) to indicate the urgency in repairing and/or replacing capital assets.
Once repair and replacement actions are determined, Capital Planning can then be used to create projects and work orders in conjunction with maintenance software.
