Tale of Two BUILDERS: Case Comparison (Navy vs. Marine Corps)

Synopsis: A common vision among facilities professionals using BUILDER is integrating the BUILDER process into their maintenance work management processes. In this case study, we will look at two organizations, the Navy and the Marine Corps, and their approaches to process and systems integration. Both have long histories with BUILDER. The Navy has worked to integrate BUILDER into their maintenance processes from the outset of their implementation. The Marine Corps worked to establish a functioning BUILDER process and is now in the planning stages of integrating it into their maintenance processes. We will compare these two approaches from an outside participant’s perspective.

BUILDER Vision – Using Army Vantage to unleash the power of BUILDER

Synopsis: Federal Agencies face increased mission demands on constrained resources. A plethora of data is readily available at the facility level for the Department of Defense users but falls short of providing an integrated prioritization for decision makers based on operational risk. Using Army Vantage to unlock BUILDER’s power provides a better real time sight picture for data-driven decisions. The presentation will provide participants a current look at how the Army is using emerging technologies available within the Army enterprise (e.g. Army Vantage) to provide decision-makers and installation level BUILDER end-users the tools needed to improve the existing Army BUILDER process that will benefit other agencies and services.
