Inside ASHE - Fall 2017 - 55

ensure that its practices are truly adding
value toward extending the life of an
asset, including validation that the asset
is functioning in an optimum state. For
example, UF Health was investing 257
man-hours every year on the infrared
scanning of electric panels. Despite this
well-intentioned exercise, historical data
suggested very low rates of the discovery
of any anomalies. This led to changing the
frequency of this strategy and resulted
in a significant savings of full-time
equivalent (FTE) hours. Another example
was that of the periodic testing of lighting
fixtures. Observed data revealed that this
strategy was contributing to the creation
of less than 1 percent of work orders. To
date, UF Health has saved approximately
5,000 FTE hours through the continued
engagement of this reasoned and
prioritized approach to ongoing systems
testing activities.

Data drives energy
conservation
UF Health uses fault detection and
diagnostics to analyze building systems
data and discover energy anomalies.
At the same time, the data historian is
used to support advanced reporting and
analytics. UF Health can query data to
find out which part of the building is in
reheat mode most of the time. Through
the intelligent analysis of these trends,
UF Health is continually able to lower
system time in reheat mode and thus
reduce energy consumption.

The role of people
in leveraging data
Today, technology may be available
to convert data into information, but it
still takes people to convert information
into outcomes. UF Health has recognized
the importance of people when it
comes to leveraging data for success.
By acknowledging possible gaps in
skill sets of their existing staff, coupled
with a comprehensive evaluation of job
functions, UF Health has strengthened
their in-house expertise.
Organizational assessments revealed
the need for training and the addition
of new job functions. UF Health has
invested in developing such new facility
management positions as energy
manager, continuous commissioning

engineer, and applications engineer, and
has also begun collaborating with its
information technology department for
network analysis and data storage, and
ensuring data integrity and reliability.

Data changes culture
Part of a larger cultural shift under
way has been "exposing" data. Data is
often kept in a management office, only
used to direct work at the shop level. UF
Health installed shop-level "dashboards"
with KPI information so that employees
have real-time visibility of their
performance. When employees can see
their personal and shop performance
they are naturally motivated to close any
performance gaps.
The data can be sorted to highlight
urgent issues, complex work, and work
orders that are falling behind. At a
glance, every associate from manager
to technician can see critical issues and
overall work performance. UF Health
is working to allow drilling down into
work order delays caused by "waiting on
parts" by expanding selective inventory
based on data analysis.

The future
UF Health has recognized the
importance and growing ubiquity
of the facility internet of things. UF
Health's new vision is to move toward
predictive analytics using machine
learning. To support this vision, UF
Health has developed a collaborative
working group that includes staff from
facility operations and information
technology representatives from
network security, server management,
and data storage specialties. This group
has developed a process to address
standards and guidelines surrounding
the "things" that are to be networked
and connected. By standardizing the
way it collects data from disparate
systems (the building automation
system, building information model,
computerized maintenance and
management system, metering, and so
forth) and the "things" that generate
data (wireless sensors, freezers,
incubators, and so forth), UF Health
is consistently well-positioned to
harness the full power and potential of
predictive analytics.
