You are invited to the FMANZ Auckland local branch event:
Virtual and Augmented Reality
A New Reality for Facilities Management
FMANZ is delighted to invite you to this Auckland Branch event
about Augmented and Virtual Reality for Facilities Management.
Augmented Reality (AR) is an advanced innovation that acts like X-ray glasses.
In the FM industry, the technology can be used to provide an image of hidden walls,
ceilings, and floors as well as the locations of pipes and ducts. The combination
of this image with computerised data enables excellent management of structures.
AR is exponentially developing and can assist facilities managers in maintaining a
building’s life cycle.
Virtual Reality (VR), on the other hand, is another prominent technology that works
by allowing individuals to step into a computer-generated artificial 3D world. Under
this pseudo-reality, FMers can grasp virtual facilities and situations in their buildings
before they even exist, enabling easier and better decision making.
Wade Jennings from CPRW FISHER will talk about how AR and VR can benefit
Facilities Managers, not only when they occupy new-builds, but also when they
work with existing older facilities. With these technologies developing at a
rapid speed, it will become easier for operational teams to access a building's
information. This presentation will give you insight into what the possibilities are
and where and when it makes sense to apply these technologies and information.
Automation Associates - who are kindly sponsoring this event - will showcase
some of their audio visual solutions that integrate technology and workplace
design to maximise collaboration and productivity.
Thank you to Fonterra for hosting this event at their new headquarter Auditorium.
