IBM Maximo Asset Management
Maximo Asset Management unifies comprehensive asset lifecycle and maintenance management activities, providing insight into all enterprise assets, their conditions and work processes to achieve better planning and control.
Capabilities of Maximo Asset Management include:
Work management: Asset-intensive organizations need to be able to centrally manage planned and unplanned work activities, from initial request through completion and recording of actuals. Mobile workers need to accomplish more in the field, from reading meters, to capturing electronic signatures, to using bar code and RFID capabilities for asset tracking and management. The right combination of features can streamline work processes for increased productivity.
Asset management: An effective asset management solution must manage and optimize the use of all assets to achieve greater asset availability, reliability, and performance. The result is the ability to extend the asset's life because assets are better maintained. The ability to gather and analyze data about asset operations allows an organization to move from corrective maintenance (repairs made after a problem occurs) to preventive maintenance (scheduled repairs based on experience). The last step is a move to predictive maintenance (repairs made because data for a particular asset indicates that a failure is imminent).
Planning and scheduling: Planners and schedulers are at the heart of optimized work processes. To lower maintenance costs and improve resource usage, personnel need to be able to graphically view all work orders and preventive maintenance schedules on a Gantt chart. Intuitive navigation through work orders can help dispatchers manage task and work dependencies.
Crews dispatched for special jobs in remote locations have an acute need for the proper skills, tools, and documentation, which is an expensive strategy used in the most critical situations. In addition, the ability to locate and track field resources on a public map can help improve workforce management and help increase the efficiencies of emergency work.
Supply chain management: As traditional business assets become more technology-enabled, operations and IT functions are increasingly converging in today's fast-paced business and technology environments. As a result, one way to effectively manage operational applications is to consolidate them. Organizations that seek to better manage their supply chains must:
- Find support that can manage a wide variety of asset types and maintenance information
- Establish a single technology system to manage virtually all asset types and information (for example, production, linear, facilities, transportation and infrastructure) including calibration support and use of mobile capabilities
- Have an integrated asset management solution that enables optimal return on assets, complies with regulations, and helps minimize risk
- Be able to develop smarter processes and provide users with an innovative, fully integrated supply chain management system designed for asset intensive industries
Health and safety: The primary objectives of health, safety, and environment initiatives are to reduce overall risk, to assist clients in their compliance with appropriate regulations, and to help clients create a safe and efficient operating environment in which assets are used. Achieving these objectives are as much about standardizing health, safety, and environmental practices as integrating these practices with day-to-day operations management.
Mobility: The widespread adoption of mobile technologies requires today's engineers, field technicians, and other business staff to use smart mobile devices to get their work done. These workers need to complete their projects within an optimized, IT-approved environment. By taking advantage of device-specific capabilities such as photos and voice-to-text features, mobile solutions allow technicians to capture the right information at the right time.
IBM Maximo Asset Management has options that addresses the special needs of industries:
Utilities: Provides special capabilities for linear assets, configuration management, and crew schedule or dispatching based on geospatial visual management tools. Suitable for transmission and distribution in water and wastewater, gas, and electric power.
Oil and gas, mining, and metals: Focuses on operational excellence by helping clients integrate safety, reliability, compliance, and performance into work management. Reduces costs through standardization, collaboration, and the adoption of better operational practices.
Manufacturing: Helps industries such as automotive, aerospace and defense, electronics or industrial products, food and beverage, or consumer products manage all their assets and maintenance activities. Uses concepts such as proper Lean Six Sigma terminology and complements product lifecycle management requirements.
Life sciences: Helps monitor, track, and manage equipment, facilities, mobile, and IT-enabled assets. Integrates with IBM Maximo Calibration to manage tools, traceability, and management of e-signature and gold standards. Documentation packages help clients meet their complex compliance requirements from the FDA and to provide support in validation projects.
Healthcare: Helps manage the complex relationship between facilities and equipment readiness. Tracks and locates critical assets, monitors facility conditions, helps clients comply with reporting requirements, and integrates with operational health information systems.
Nuclear power: Helps nuclear organizations manage work and asset management regulations through detailed state management, workflows, escalations and e-signature. Suitable to assist in the management of client activities within stringent regulatory environments due to compliance, health, safety, and security.
Transportation: Provides detailed asset configuration management, fuel management, drivers' logs, and bay scheduling tools to help improve the availability and use of critical transportation assets in organizations operating rail, road, and air traffic or logistics.
Service providers: Helps manage profitability and SLAs by linking customer service commitments with field teams delivering services. Related service management activities for multiple customers are managed in a single cloud- based deployed instance accessible by an Android or Apple mobile device.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.
While your Software Subscription and Support is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance by telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For additional details, see the IBM Support Guide. Software Subscription and Support does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under the applicable agreements.
Unless specified otherwise in a written agreement with you, IBM does not provide support for third-party products that were not provided by IBM. Ensure that when contacting IBM for covered support, you follow problem determination and other instructions that IBM provides, including in the IBM Support Guide.

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.
Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
