Alright... I held off during the first week... but, I couldn't take it any longer! I will be using this as a platform to talk about FM related issues. CAD monkeys working in FM seem to be sort of hard to come by, so I will take the opportunity to speak when I may.
First off, I'll list the CAD FM discussion groups that I am aware of. These are places for folks to post questions and discuss experiences with others dealing with software issues in Facility Management:
FM Forum -
FMDUGI - FMDesktop User Group International
AUGI - FM forums for the Autodesk Users Group International
The main point of my post today was to list some FM programs and associated websites.
so, the following are (in no order, and with no recommendations, implied or otherwise) some of the links which I have added to my FM-favorites in my browser over the past couple of years.
