Facility Programming

Differences in personality, problem-solving process, background, and work experience all contribute to companies having a wide variety of viewpoints. Without a unified vision for a company, its future direction can be uncertain and its productivity could suffer. Context Design Group's unique Facility Programming Process is a proven method for building consensus at the management, project, and organizational levels. This process is unlike any other in the industry and allows us to quickly identify issues that are critical to the success of your project.

We can help your company to verbalize its business, operational, and facility goals in our Goal Setting Sessions. Open discussions and productive dialogues help your company define its priorities and formulate "big picture" goals. The information covered during the Goal Setting Session is organized into the following four categories:

- Function - Including process, people, activities, and relationships

- Form - including facility, quality, and the social/psychological environment

- Economy - addressing cost, scheduling, and efficiency

- Time - entailing historical aspects, present conditions, and future projections

Because no two companies are identical, Context Design Group customizes its programming process to suit the needs of your business. Pre-Programming Questionnaires and Data Collection interviews allow our team to quickly gain insight into your company's operations and extract critical technical information that is essential to the success of your project. Context knows the value of shop-floor experience and challenges every meeting participant to contribute his/her ideas openly. Key information from the data collection interviews is recorded graphically to create a living body of information for the project and serves to:

- Establish GOALS for both the business and the project

- Collect, Organize, and Analyze known FACTS related to the project

- Uncover and Test new CONCEPTS

- Determine the NEEDS of the Project

- Identify and track ISSUES

The result of Context's unique Facility Programming Process is a complete understanding of the problem at hand. The information from the Programming Sessions is documented in the Project Information Manual and serves as a roadmap for the entire design process. By examining process, operational, administrative, facility, and business issues simulatneously, Context can help your company define their business and operational goals, create a sense of unity among your team and clearly identify the key issues for your project.
