An automated debris management system (ADMS) is a technology solution that eliminates the need for traditional paper-based documentation during the debris removal process following a disaster incident.
Thompson Consulting Services’ ADMS solution, the Thompson Data Management Suite (TDMS) is a collection of hardware, software and communications infrastructure for the management of data and documents related to disaster recovery. TDMS is comprised of mobile devices to document field operations; web database; geographic information systems (GIS) and mapping applications; and our web-based client and stakeholder portal which serves as an information center for managing project related data and documents.
Through the implementation of these technologies, TDMS limits the propensity for human error, fraud, data entry error, and reconciliation challenges resulting in efficiencies, increased accuracy and cost savings.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has provided ADMS specifications as part of its Advanced Contracting Initiative (ACI) for disaster response. These specifications, which are satisfied by TDMS, have established a baseline for performance and requirements that serve as a standard for ADMS industry-wide.
