Facilities Management: Sustainability + “intelligence” = Smart asset strategy

Think of a building as a system (or man-made ecosystem) that may be unable to function if one of its sub-systems fails.
Each sub-system is inter-connected, either physically, or by the purpose for which it was constructed or is occupied. At best, the loss of one sub-system can lead to a temporary partial or full closure. At worst it can cause unseen damage to another sub-system or systems.
So, if the overall system is reliant upon interdependent sub-systems: WHY are interdependent functions only measured independently?
”Imagine assessing the robustness of the electricity grid with data on power stations but not on the power lines connecting them”
Ontonix technology offers the solution. By, effectively measuring the complexity of the (eco)system, each interdependent sub-system and the evolving relationship amongst them. The result is an early warning system providing “crisis anticipation” that supports the old adage that “prevention is better than cure”…it is also much more resilient, sustainable and profitable!!!
