OnRequest Net -- CAFM 1.0 (Master of Software Engineering, unofficial)
This manuscript describes the methodology used to create a network-based application that has the annotative features found in computer aided facility management (CAFM)software. The project was sponsored by Advanced Planning Technologies Inc. to replace OnRequest, their current facilities management software. The OnRequest software is installed on a single client machine. All data used by OnRequest is also stored on the client. In OnRequest sharing data amongst people is cumbersome. To access another user's files they must first be transmitted through third party software such as email, ftp, or removable disk. OnRequest Net-CAFM 1.0 stores all data in a database server environment where multiple users can have access to the same data simultaneously. In version 1.0 of this software not all of the features currently found in OnRequest are present, just those dealing with managing database data and the annotation of drawings.
