Facility Manager? 5 Reasons to Start Using Drone Technology

We’ve been searching for innovative technologies for 2017-2022 that might be helpful and beneficial for anyone involved in corporate facility management. We’ve learned that the continuing evolution of drone technology offers quite some innovative and exciting solutions for the world of facilities management.

At the moment most of these benefits are the outcome of unique photography capabilities. Here are just some of these benefits:

1. Assessment of roof status – especially beneficial for multiple facilities with a large roof area. A drone can detect cracks, slate damages, condition of guttering and downpipes, and even condition of objects such as an air conditioner or solar panels.

2. Assessment of hard/unsafe to reach areas – smoke stacks, chimneys, and antennas.

3. Façade inspections.

4. Quick and safe roof measurement tasks – measuring an entire roof or specific areas which single objects are occupying such as an air conditioner, solar panels, etc.

5. Monitoring the ‘behavior’ of any facility – recording detailed facility façade images/videos, in different periods of time, and then comparing the results may reveal unwanted surprises.

Facility Manager? 2 Collaborative Robotics Solutions that will Save you Costs

As part of our continuing research concerning technology trends for 2017-2022, we’ve found that Collaborative Robotics technologies offer various benefits facility managers would want to embrace.

What is Collaborative Robotics?
Cobots (co-robots) are robots designed to collaborate either with other robots or with humans in the same workspace.

According to Grace Market Data this emerging market is expected to witness an exponential growth, with annual shipment and sales revenue from hardware and software growing at more than 42% annually through 2022.

How can it help saving on facility management costs?

1. Alternative to manual dull/dangerous human handling with zero-defect logistics processes and new levels of productivity – auto-packaging of items as an example, already offered by Universal Robots and Sawyer from RETHINK Robotics.

2. Trailer and container unloading robots will assist workers with physically strenuous tasks, again, providing new levels of productivity. FANUC America Corporation Cobots are one example.
