Dining Facility Files Management ARIMS and the Dining Facility
Principles of ARIMS:
ARIMS focuses on the management of long-term and permanent records and allows the business process (Management) to manage the short-term records. Simplifies recordkeeping. All records are categorized as two types.
Short-term: No value beyond the business process.
Long Term: For historical, lessons learned, audit purposes, or research.
What does this mean to the dining facility? ARIMS only requires a minimum of information on short-term records for identification: this is the majority of the forms and AFMIS reports used in the dining facility. In short: Keep it simple.
