IBM Maximo for EAM

Asset Management from IBM Maximo gives you the power and performance to drive asset management in your organisation to a whole new level.

Built on a single software platform, Maximo delivers a comprehensive view of all asset types - production, facilities, transportation and IT - across your entire enterprise.  This holistic perspective allows you to see all of your assets and identify untapped potential within them, allowing you to develop comprehensive programs for preventive, predictive, routine and unplanned maintenance.   Together, these programs can reduce costs and increase asset uptime, leading to combined performance improvements of some 270% (source IBM).

How it works

IBM Maximo is designed from the ground up to support Asset Management.  The data and business processes within IBM Maximo support best-practice asset decision-making across all industries.  For example, an asset record is classified with attributes, such as material type, diameter, rating, power output, manufacturer and installation date.  These attributes can be augmented, if coupled with Maximo Spatial GIS integration, to provide geographic attributes, such as soil type, connectivity and length.  

A variety of business processes are used to further augment the data relevant to each asset.  These include the Service Chain (SLA management), Work Order (planned, reactive, CAPEX, and condition), and inventory/procurement (costs, delivery dates, vendor performance and warranty).

Data and reporting tools

Maintenance activity recorded on the asset gives the necessary amount of failure/performance data to provide cost, failure and fit-for-purpose data attributes against that asset.  This information can then be utilised via IBM Maximo's reporting suite, or external reporting tools, to trend asset performance and make effective asset investment decisions.

IBM Maximo has 150 standard reports focused on Asset Management processes that include mean time to failure, mean time to repair, asset failure analysis, asset cost analysis and vendor analysis. Furthermore, IBM Maximo provides e-query and e-spreadsheet capabilities to provide ad-hoc data interrogation to support asset lifecycle planning.
