CDM ToolKit™ 2000 Service Release 3
CDM ToolKit™ 2000 software helps construction industry professionals control and manage the HSE Construction (Design and Management) 1994 regulations. Clients, contractors, architects and planning supervisors have specific legal responsibilities under these regulations and many prosecutions have already taken place. The new release of the CDM ToolKit™ 2000 software includes a new Maintenance Management Module that allows the management of the HSE led process from project inception through construction, practical completion, and maintenance management to final demolition.
This one stop shop approach allows users to invest in one software solution that will guide them through the whole process of Risk Assessment, Notification and preparation of the Pre-Tender Plan, Construction Phase Plan, Health & Safety File and now the combined Health & Safety File and Maintenance Manual.
The inbuilt - and periodically updated - 87,000 word KnowledgeBase assists the process with health & safety related advice and guidance on the complete CDM process.
Report formatting is entirely under the user's control with the inbuilt word processor. Users can save their own document templates with part completed sections to any format and call them into new projects. All documents can be saved to CDROM, sent as e-mail attachments or simply saved to file. Document sections can accept cut and paste illustrations or text from any other windows based package. Supporting Rich Text Format, documents can be freely copied between most word processors if required.
Whatever the output, users can set their preferences to show a viewable facsimile of every document produced in the CDM ToolKit™ 2000. This is true version control that also allows the user to regenerate and edit the source material at any stage of the project's life. Customers wanting to control their paper file storage through on line or juke box style CDROM libraries have a ready to go solution too.
The HSE CDM legislation puts significant responsibilities on every Organisation involved in the construction process. The CDM ToolKit™ 2000 provides an Audit of every significant transaction within the database. This information can be queried through a standard database interface to find out who did what within any project.
Presented both on Treeview and menu driven screens, the user can create projects within any grouping required by the Organisation and drill down the Explorer style Treeview to the project details and CDM Documents. Alternatively, users can simply select the required project from their own recently edited documents list from the main menu. Either way, this process illustrates the ease of use that is now delivered to every User's desktop.
Designed around a relational database, the CDM ToolKit™ 2000 has a time line based summary screen, standard summary reports and timetables built in. The major parts of the database have an inbuilt Gridview that allows users to selectively present database information for analysis. For example, the Organisation database can be presented to users on a grid to show those Organisations that are overdue for a competence assessment in any required CDM role, including for instance only the preferred suppliers list.
New Options now announced include a Forms Editor to allow Users to design their own bespoke reports using data fields available from the database. The Permissions Option allows network Users to set up groups or individuals with specific read, edit and associated access to any part of the database right down to document section level. This is designed to be used across different departments with different access requirements from the same database, leading to a dramatic reduction in the cost of providing complex documentation across the Organisation.
The new Maintenance Manual is built around The Building Centre Trust's combined Health & Safety File and Maintenance Manual and provided in the CDM Toolkit™ 2000 under license. The new product brand includes its own KnowledgeBase and built-in set of forms for the Maintenance Manual.
