Tools, Methods, and Models

We build innovation into every solution and help move new ideas into action.


LMI has developed, tested, and applied a variety of computer-based tools and analytical methods to help solve your most complex problems.


LMI’s Sustainability Management and Reporting Tool (SMaRT) is a web application designed to help federal environmental managers collect, manage, and report environmental sustainability data for compliance with Executive Order 13514. It employs a flexible structure for managing customizable data calls, provides automated data quality reviews, and rolls up data to multiple agency and sub-agency levels. The database allows easy export for mitigation analysis and planning, and direct insertion into required federal reporting forms. Learn More » 


The OpenPolicy™ search tool is a solution for extracting related knowledge from large collections of complex documents such as directives, regulations, manuals, and other instructions. Massive amounts of information, and more importantly knowledge, is virtually locked away in these electronic files of written prose. OpenPolicy combines innovative technologies with LMI’s deep government expertise to solve this persistent and expensive problem. OpenPolicy uses an industrial strength semantic data base platform that enables intuitive searching and filtering and provides “guided navigation” built on real subject matter expert knowledge.

The Climate Change Knowledge Engine, a wiki-based website where users can explore, analyze, evaluate, and compare scientific findings related to climate change. LMI-CliCKE presents nearly 3000 existing, peer-reviewed findings from the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report (AR4).

Watershed Infrastructure Condition Assessment Tool™

This tool is used to assess and prioritize watershed impacts from public lands and agency operations. It quantifies watershed priorities and operational impacts and creates prioritized and results-oriented work plans so facility managers can work on the most important issues. It also provides links and instructions for developing cost-effective watershed management projects to mitigate short- and long-term impacts to water and natural resources.


This model addresses the emerging area in supply chain practice of green supply chain management, which integrates environmental management with traditional supply chain management. Environmental managers have started using a life-cycle analysis approach to managing environmental impacts, and supply managers have found process improvements by breaking down barriers between supply chain and environmental managers.


Using an industry-leading, mobile web platform, this model assesses current infrastructure and facilities systems and subsystems and quantifies their capital renewal needs to help managers prepare and justify long-term budgets to fulfill those needs.

Sustainable Building Assessment Tool™

Using a cutting-edge integration of a mobile web platform, this tool assesses a building’s current Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) score and identifies the capital investment needed to obtain additional LEED credits. LEED is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard developed by members of the U.S. Green Building Council.


PHAST™ supports the Department of Defense’s critical infrastructure and mission assurance programs by characterizing virtually all military, federal, and commercial assets supporting the military health system. It provides vastly enhanced visibility of health resources.

Occupational Health and Safety Tools

This set of tools helps assess workplace conditions and potential worker hazards to reduce cost of compensation programs and risk from noncompliance with regulations. We provide managers with the information necessary to review all levels of performance—local, regional, and national—and make appropriate budget and management decisions.
