The Facilities Rulebase Application Model Management Environment (FRAMME) is the utility nucleus functionality that is required for automated mapping, facility management, and geographic information system (AM/FM/GIS). ActiveFRAMME is the change management engine for the facility model, and supports the records and mapping workflows, aids design and analysis applications, and allows for integration of AM/FM/GIS data with corporate applications. ActiveFRAMME executes stored rules that describe the features, relationships, menus, and functions that are valid for the application. ActiveFRAMME enables the applications’ long term transaction processing capabilities required for work order processing, virtual or seamless display of the facility model, and the ability to interface to external data stores. ActiveFRAMME supports network tracing capabilities.
