Facilities & configuration management
Government facilities have many types of documentation that need to be managed, distributed
and retained. Too often the knowledge of operations, equipment and documentation rests with
the few select individuals who were involved in the original purchase and implementation of
facility items. Over time, the changing makeup of the facility workforce often leaves the
majority of personnel with little or no knowledge of equipment or systems. Yet at the same
time, government regulations require that information be both easily accessible and retained
for records management purposes.
The PROMERGENT solution is currently installed in the Naval Facilities Engineering Command
(NAVFACENGCOM) and is being used in many locations around the world to manage contracts,
environmental records, construction information and purchasing documentation. The FAA and
the Defense Finance & Accounting Service group of the federal government are also using this
system to save both time and money in the handling of their records.
Engineering change management
To meet the needs of your customers, you have to create an organization that embraces change,
rather than resents it. As any design progresses, changes are inevitable. Specifications change,
clarifications are provided, and items often need to be modified to meet specific conditions.
Eliminating changes is not a battle you are likely to win; instead it is better to focus on
minimizing the cost associated with implementing these changes. Everyone knows that the earlier
changes are communicated and planned for, the lower the cost of making the change. PROMERGENT
understands these issues and has created an engineering change management application that
solves these problems using a combination of document management and automated workflow.
All documentation associated with a project is stored on-line, and anyone involved in reviewing,
approving and implementing a change will follow a controlled process. Maximum flexibility to
meet your organization's specific change processes is provided using a graphical modeling tool.
Authorized users can also modify the process, even after a change has begun. Change requests
can be prioritized, as often there may be an emergency item needing immediate review and approval.
Tired of being driven by unplanned changes? Let us show you how to drive your business through
efficient engineering change management.

For a City Manager, there are difficulties locating documents when responding to
a lawsuit, difficulties in managing and maintaining an ever increasing amount of documents, and
frustration in trying to maintain and locate old, deteriorating records.
For an Information Resource Director, there are difficulties implementing and supporting numerous

frustration with how difficult and expensive it is to use their current document management system.
For the City Engineer, there are difficulties managing the paper trail associated with permits,
difficulties retrieving associated inspection documents, and frustration in managing the
documentation associated with capital improvement projects -- whether it is exchanging documents
with contractors, design firms, architects or engineers.
