Keeping our Work Order Management System Efficient

This quarter we’re highlighting a team that works to ensure our work order management system runs smoothly and efficiently: the Tririga Users Group! This Group meets monthly to look into any changes that can be made to improve work order management for both facilities employees and customers. 

The Tririga work order management system allows facilities staff to assign work tasks to certain shops, track the progress of tasks, and mark tasks as resolved or complete. Facilities Management (FM) customers who have access to Tririga can submit tasks and track their progress.

Making a Difference with Deferred Maintenance

The Asset Management Facilities Condition Assessment (FCA) and ICAMP teams within Facilities Management (FM) are currently tracking nearly 200 deferred maintenance projects funded by Assembly Bill 94 (AB94) from 2019, 2020, and 2021 along with the State Budget Act from 2021. What a huge undertaking! Let’s check in with the team and see where we are today. 

These teams consist of: 

Resourcefulness Leads to Big Savings!

In April 2020, Facilities Management (FM) was notified by Design Construction Management (DCM) of several buildings on the Davis campus that were slated to be decommissioned. The notification allows our teams the option to identify any equipment or materials that might be useful to use for future projects.

FCA Team Tackles Project - Benefiting All UC!

In 2016, Facilities Management (FM) started a venture with the University of California, Office of President (UCOP) to create a UC-wide program to evaluate every significant piece of real property on campuses. This program would evaluate the property’s current condition, potential failure and mission-critical-importance level. Today, ten UC campuses utilize this program to have an accurate assessment of Deferred Maintenance (DM) needs for all UC buildings and infrastructure including equipment based on actual asset conditions.
