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.

Architectural Barriers Act Compliance Assessment Tool

Using a state-of-the-art, mobile web platform, this tool audits and tracks building compliance with accessibility standards.


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.


I-PASS™ is an integrated model used to benchmark the performance of a supply chain, identify strengths and weaknesses, assess options for improvement, and create a plan of action for improving performance.

Performance Risk Assessment Method

The LMI Performance Risk Assessment Method is a risk-based method and assessment tool that can clearly identity areas where performance may prevent an agency from meeting its goals and gives senior agency decision makers a means to assess and develop future courses of action. A performance risk assessment analyzes the probability and consequence of an organization failing to perform. The LMI Performance Risk Assessment Method enhances the capabilities currently provided by other methods and tools.


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.

PRIME-CHOICE™  Decision Support Method

This six-step process combines state-of-the-art financial and risk assessment tools to help decision makers select the best among a set of competing alternatives. The method is particularly useful when the decision is critical and qualitative factors obscure the best choices.

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.

Sustainable Building Audit 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.

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.


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.
