So far, discussions around smart cities have focused on technology and its impact on infrastructure, leveraging technologies such as big data and infocomm to better manage urban assets such as public transportation, parking meters, and utilities. However, in SAMEX opinion, a truly smart city should focus on its occupants and aim to achieve three goals —— improved quality of life, economic competitiveness and sustainability.

Why make buildings smart?

Leveraging cutting-edge technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), M2M (Machine to Machine), edge computing, and intelligent data analytics, smart buildings can enhance the experience of occupants and create more attractive and desirable workplaces. While real-time data and predictive analytics can optimize his/her workspace, it can also track and improve occupant health, performance and productivity, which is essential for any business.
Smart buildings that respond to real-time operating conditions—whether that means automatically turning off lights when a meeting room is empty, turning down a thermostat when the outside temperature rises, or a system diagnosing a fault and correcting it immediately—will keep the building running at peak efficiency.

Smart buildings make cities smarter!

A smart building is flexible enough to adapt to changing occupant needs, it is intelligent enough to take into account many factors in both external and internal conditions, it can proactively correct in the process to improve efficiency, and at the same time, Able to efficiently meet energy saving targets. The promise of smart buildings is incredible - made possible by powerful, reliable technology.
The following four trends are integral to making smart buildings an integral part of smart city development:



The myriad devices and systems in a building work together, and big data analytics and cloud computing enable these devices to predict Measure, monitor, correct and control building behavior. With the help of intelligent algorithms and big data analysis, from buildings The vast amount of data is being transformed into useful, actionable insights.



The deployment of IoT makes operations in buildings visible and transparent. Electrical losses from energy are usually high network performance to the end application and even decide how and where to save energy. Facility managers are better able to Visualize what's happening to your building and make informed decisions to correct and improve conditions.



Building management mobilizes an integrated system where constant dialogue between devices means simple, flexible and advanced control. A device administrator can now not only monitor and manage various devices in one view, but also control all devices from his mobile device.



IoT devices automatically monitor environmental conditions and automatically adjust or send alerts when safety standards are exceeded. Buildings become more people-centric Smart buildings make spaces flexible, adaptable, and managed efficiently. One study estimates that a comfortable indoor environment can affect employee productivity by as much as 15 percent.

Asset Management Evolution History

Phase 1: Post-event maintenance

(From the first industrial revolution in the 18th century to the 19th century). At this point, the role of the EAM system is to perform unplanned maintenance in the event of equipment failure or failure

Stage 2: Preventive Maintenance

(from the 19th century to the 1930s). The current role of the EAM system is regular inspection and early maintenance. At this stage, the EAM system includes planned maintenance and scheduled maintenance. Among them, planned maintenance is based on equipment maintenance cycle, structure, complex system A set of fixed standards, such as data, and mandatory pre-repairs are adopted, that is, the equipment is repaired according to the planned cycle diagram. Regular maintenance in an EAM system is based on daily inspections and periodic inspections of equipment. According to the defects found in the inspection, make a maintenance plan in a timely manner, Repair equipment, eliminate hidden dangers, and restore equipment performance.

Stage 3: Comprehensive Maintenance

The role of the EAM system at this time was economic maintenance, after which the functionality of the EAM asset management system was upgraded to full maintenance (from the 1940s to the 1980s). The functions of the current EAM system include post-event maintenance (BM), preventive maintenance (PM), improvement maintenance (CM) and maintenance preventive (MP). At this time, the EAM system is characterized by equipment modernization and management modernization. At this point, the EAM system begins the equipment life cycle assessment. At this stage, disciplines such as equipment comprehensive engineering and maintenance engineering have also emerged, and the EAM system maintenance organization has been intensively developed. Fully participate in maintenance activities.

Stage 4: Condition Maintenance and Predictive Maintenance

(from the 1980s to the present). At this time, the function of the EAM system is to make maintenance decisions based on monitoring, predicting and judging the operating status of the equipment. Maintenance decisions are based on differentiation and comprehensive development with the field of science and technology. EAM systems are not only for equipment Management is supported by various theories and is monitored and diagnosed by means of technology. At this stage, equipment management is also developing towards socialization, specialization, and internationalization, and operators have begun to participate in maintenance since then.
