There is nothing better than recognizing the men and women who work countless hours in order to provide the attending sports fan a memorable experience. This article also highlights the importance of an Enterprise asset management (EAM) & Computerized Maintenance Management Software. It also gives a great example on a stadiums recommendation to improve their maintenance issues. This article also has links to get great information on several different aspects of sports management that can be very useful for our final project.

Good look at behind the scenese of facility management. 

Cam Farnham's curator insight, October 15, 2014 12:33 AM

1. I learned that without a good EAM CMMS solution, maintenance can quickly skyrocket in price. Yes the job will get done, but the operation skyrockets in price. Also i learned that if you plan your maintenance through spreadsheets, you will forget something.  The article compares it to when someone tried to plan there days using sticky notes. You will loose them , and will always miss something.

 

2. I found it interesting that there were 7 specific objectives they described. I thought there could be an endless amount of objectives to make the maintenance  of sport better. Also i found it interesting that the article stated the community would be much happier if they did not have get a new stadium, because of costs and memories.

 

3. I selected this article because one of my first jobs might be working for a sports team in the facility field. I always thought driving a zamboni would be such a cool and fun job. Another reason i chose this is because my father has told me many cool stories about facility management. My father worked for the Brown University facility management staff when he was in college, until he made the football team.

 

4.This information about facility management will help me out because i know how to stay organized and how to be the most successful. I know not to use spreadsheets, or sticky notes to plan maintenance. Also i know specific objectives to get done to be the most successful and to make everyone happy.
