Effective Collaboration Building - ESB

Lantmäteriet has together with a number of municipalities developed processes that describe how our collaboration can be more effective when it comes to updating buildings.

Gains with effective collaboration

The benefits we see with a more efficient collaboration are:

  • Less shortcomings - gives higher quality of building information and less jobs in the municipalities.
  • Faster updating - gives higher timeliness on data.
  • Fewer ambiguities - less duplication of work in both the municipalities and Lantmäteriet.
  • Mutual understanding and knowledge of each other's work.
  • Good basis for the transition to service-based updating.

The improvement measures that we have mainly seen are to strengthen the internal communication between departments both within the municipalities and Lantmäteriet. But also that it is important that things are done in the right order.

Web-based training about the processes

Read more about the training that was carried out under autumn 2013, the background to the work on ESB and take part in the processes below.

Background to ESB

In 2011, a new basic data warehouse was operated at Lantmäteriet which meant a new way of storing the BAL information. In connection with the transfer of the building information to the new basic data warehouse, register data and geometry were integrated together into a single building object. This means that we are now several who are helped to keep the same building up to date and this requires closer cooperation than before between the municipality and Lantmäteriet but also internally with each party.

The purpose of ESB is to describe what this collaboration can look like to get an efficient flow both within the own organization and between the municipality and Lantmäteriet.

Results and processes

The clearest improvement measure that emerged in the work with ESB was that there is a need to strengthen the internal communication between departments that handle building information, both within the municipalities and within Lantmäteriet. This is often where problems can arise, unless everyone involved has access to the information or the information is not handled in the same way everywhere.

Two processes with associated process descriptions have been developed. The first describes the flow for registration in LINA combined with geometry deliveries, which is currently the most common method of updating building information. The second shows the flow of service-based updating, which is the new way of updating directly from the municipality's own system.

The processes have been presented to several municipalities on different occasions and the response has been very positive overall. They can be seen as support for the development of the municipalities' own internal processes, for example concerning building permits, measurement, registration in LINA and geometry deliveries to Lantmäteriet .

The roles in the municipality that have been identified as active in the process of building information are administrators of building permits, demolition permits, addresses, measurement and LINA as well as measurement techniques and supplier of building geometries.
