RSMG developed and currently utilizes an automated database system to help store and evaluate information on all research groups. This Space Management System (SMS) is an interactive system that not only stores survey data, but also incorporates extensive analytical, modeling, and reporting capabilities. Utilizing this comprehensive database, the space allocation process, and particularly the process of planning for anticipated space changes, becomes far more efficient and reliable. A description of the current survey components and process follows.
