Requirements management database

The requirements management database (AFM – German “Auflagenmanagement”) is an integral part of VUM’s service in notification management. Apart from any adjustment and server costs that may be required, the client does not incur any additional costs. The AFM database can also be purchased without additional services from VUM for use in a specific project.


Features of the AFM database

  • The requirements management (AFM) database is a web-based database solution to ensure compliance with the notification of construction and operation of complex infrastructure and industrial projects.
  • It is suitable for all digital devices and smartphones.
  • The database was designed by people who are entrusted with the requirements management for large projects and are also their users. It exactly meets the requirements of practical users.
  • • The AFM database is a project management tool that is adapted to the specific requirements of the project (tasks, roles, deadlines, responsibilities, reporting).
  • All official notification requirements and project specifications are translated into any number of one-off or recurring tasks, for whose fulfillment responsible persons and deadlines are defined. Reminder functions help to fulfill all tasks on time.
  • The status of task completion as well as deviations in content and missed deadlines can be quickly identified using a traffic light system.
  • Documents (e.g. photos, measurement reports, logs) can be easily linked to requirements and tasks. This creates traceability and above all, location-independent availability. Linked documents can be exported at any time in a clear folder structure.
  • Requirements, tasks and associated documents can be located via a GIS interface (ArcGIS).
  • The AFM database enables reporting adapted to the needs of the target group (e.g. reports to authorities, project managers, steering teams) in various common data formats (such as .pdf, .doc, .xls).
  • In addition to the pre-formatted reports, there is the possibility of evaluating the query, which can be designed individually. This .xls export list allows easy and fast further processing.
