The ArcFM Solution is a
suite of products that includes ArcFM Desktop, ArcFM Engine, and ArcFM
Server. Administrators configure these products and create geodatabases
containing intelligent sets of objects to represent the behavior and
characteristics of landbase and utility features. ArcFM Solution applications
are an extension to ArcGIS.
Integrated with ArcMap
and configured with ArcCatalog, users employ a single environment
to manage and map multiple features and objects that represent specific
business processes and work flows. Administrators use tools such as
the ArcFM Properties Manager in ArcCatalog to configure specific functions
that increase editing efficiency and design productivity in ArcMap.
