This is the second part of a two part series on the Business Operations/Integration Division of the Directorate of Public Works. Behind the scenes in the Engineering Systems Branch, Company Operation Division Directorate of Public Works, a group of engineers handle computer systems utilized to execute maintenance requests. Upgrading and managing maintenance request forms is an intricate job. Is known as the General Fund Enterprise Company System. Our Engineering System branch was one of two installments to develop the system, Poyser said. The 2nd installation to help aviator the program was Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. The DART system is used to handle requests from across the installation, over 25 she said.
The maintenance and operations supervisory team can retrieve information about the order and assigns it to technicians with the skillset and accessibility once a service request is entered from GFEBS, Poyser said. The DART system extracts the service request information entered to provide procurement info, employee information, order history, GFEBS work centre information, etcetera and meaningful reports the Imperial group of the Operations and Maintenance Division may utilize to manage their workload. A store supervisor can take a look at their purchase backlog and see, for example, if they’ve 60 service asks and 10 of them are delegated to five and one technician are delegated to another technician.
They may also see how old asks are in purchase to triage their backlog. Staff utilize GFEBS to capture project costs and their expenses for the services, she said. In house personnel that will need to report the cost of time, equipment and materials used on a project or a contractor who needs to report their costs or a project manager who needs to report their design and examination costs, Poyser said. All prices must be settled back to the support they support, and which comes along with a considerable systems requirement. The project cost information collected through GFEBS is managed Engineering Systems Branch by from house programmers.
We work together a lot with program analysts, Porter stated. We work together in order that everything that should be captured gets captured, correctly priced and coded. The partnership adds to their support factor within Engineering Systems Branch. This is their support part, we do a lot to just keep people going, but there’s also a lot which goes into our co-ordination with the analyst in making certain the info gathered is correct, Porter said.
