The collective ideas and shared knowledge among members of the Applied Technology & Efficiencies Initiative have created methodologies and tools to address difficult operational concerns spanning the areas of facilities management, environmental safety, health, and security within the Texas A&M Health Science Center. Application of these ATEI-inspired methods have resulted in national recognition for efficiency in all of the indicated topic areas.

ATEI accomplishments include:

  • Creation of one start-up company with several divisions.
  • Intellectual property owned by The Texas A&M System.
  • A risk assessment process that is arguably the best in the country submitted for patent review.
  • Two national awards for models of efficiency with a third award pending.
  • A case study for the use of BIM to be published in a book chapter.
  • A national award for best use of computer maintenance management system among institutions of higher education.
The influences of Texas A&M University are the underpinning of the success of ATEI. The leadership of ATEI has utilized the educational resources of Texas A&M University in the disciplines provided by the College of Liberal Arts, Dwight Look College of Engineering, the College of Agriculture & Life Sciences, the College of Architecture, the College of Engineering & Technology [Commerce] and the Mays Business School.

The following projects were produced using ATEI methods and processes:

  • Environmental Health & Safety - implementation of iForms inspections process
  • Parking – implementation of T2 Parking System
  • Emergency Management/Business Continuity - implementation of the Kuali Read
  • Laboratory Chemical Safety - implementation of ChemTracker
  • Facilities & Construction – implementation of AiM System & hand-held devices
