Move Adds Changes MAC Bible 

SMI has world knowledge that will provide the expertise in providing the internal move add and changes within your organization. We work closely
with FM teams, business units, floor support, IT support, voice, market data, movers, audio video, engineers and architect firms to ensure that a
move goes smoothly until final user testing and handover to the business unit. 
Moves are when personnel transfer to another location and  construction issues are  raised to change the internal or external new environment. Daily
moves are usually less than 10 people and carried out during the evening. Project moves are anything above this count and are usually carried out
over the weekend or holiday vacation time. There are times when a business unit has a larger budget and  would like to deploy a move as soon as
practical and can require all night work. Budget approval is required in these cases with emergency meetings not taking the same normal request
procedures and mandatory lead time.
Financial administration varies from firm to firm. Each using their own type of metrics tracking, data base, drawing nomenclatures and  various Microsoft
office products. Additionally Autocad Visio and other in house architecture software.  One bible does not fit all so we constantly make new changes
and entries that support your  firms procedures in an easy to read  presentation reference booklet.   We define terminology and add an indexed
glossary of terms. Both in Japanese and English. Below is a typical example of a MAC Bible contents which is highly detailed with diagrams and
complete explanations within the Bible itself. This again is tailored to your specific operational protocol and system and requirements
