Vrancken), Allendale, Michigan, launched the first BSc, MSc, MFM and PhD programs in Strategic Facility Management. The Facility Company (FB) is part of an organization that allows (facilitates) that the company can operate. This is therefore often managed by a facility manager. Since facility tasks are often not specific to the company and are therefore often not at the heart of the company`s activities, these are increasingly carried out by specialized companies (outsourcing). A facility reporting and an information system can be used as a support for the efficient and effective execution of facility services. English Facility Management, translated into Dutch as facility management, deals with the management and control of support activities for the primary process of an organization as well as for other support activities. [1] These are support activities necessary both at the strategic level of the Organization to achieve its objectives and at the practical level of each staff member. A facility manager takes care of, among other things, the facility services. These services are often, when not outsourced, provided by the Facility Company. This often takes care of the wide variety of facilities. By establishments: the American term “facility” and the Anglo-Saxon term “facilities” derive from the Latin term “facilitas” or “facilitate”, which means lightness, availability or kindness. This is related to the adverb “easy” (without difficulty, without objection) and the adjective “facilis” (easy to do, adapted, as desired, fast, skillful, friendly). This shows both the character and essence of Facility Services: ensuring that the central process runs smoothly.
