Course Description

COURSE:  WMGT 131 SMS BUILDER Level 1 (Read Only rights)

OBJECTIVE:  The objective of this course is to introduce students to Sustainment Management System (SMS) BUILDER so they can be granted “Read Only” rights to the system. Students will gain a foundational knowledge of BUILDER so they better understand the role it plays in CE processes and how it dovetails with Asset Management principles. They’ll also be better versed in how to run reports and navigate their way around SMS BUILDER so they can make better decisions on infrastructure investment.

DESCRIPTION:  This course describes what BUILDER is, how it works, and why we use it. Other topics included are Direct Condition Ratings, key terms, reports, best practices, FAQs, and a detailed walk-through of the BUILDER website, the Custom Reports Guide, and several common reports.

Successful completion of this course is a prerequisite for WMGT 231 SMS BUILDER (Level 2 Assessor) and WMGT 331 (Level 3 Data Manager) training.

This course is offered monthly.
