This will show you how to add a toolbar button for an Automation script. I have included a “dummy” script that does not do much,
it is just to show you how to add a toolbar button to an application.
Create the script.
First go to Automation Scripting and create a new Action Launch Point.
For this purpose, I called my Launch Point MYSCRIPT and left the Action to MYSCRIPT as well.
Notice that I picked ASSET for my object, I plan to add this button to the Asset Application. I then select a name for my... [More]
Once in a while I'll get questions about performance problems. Specific scenarios can be resolved by applying Interim Fixes or adding indexes. Those critical and urgent problems often happen throughout the entire system.
Here is a collection of performance related recordings and technotes that might help:
SCCD 7.5.1 Performance Education Session
Correcting Slow User Queries
I want to share some of my real world customer support cases from my role at IBM as a Level 2 Support Engineer. A former manager of mine used to interview candidates for technical support jobs by asking them, "Are you running FROM something, or are you running TO something?". There are many good answers to this question, but I've always considered myself to be running TO my various positions in technical client support. I believe that my job is to help other people do THEIR jobs. I want to use this forum to... [More]
So you and your team are ready to make the leap on to the next release of Maximo or SCCD but, there is that looming concern about what is going to happen when you flip the "ON" switch on your go-live date. Will it work? Will performance be acceptable? or will you have to find a safe house to hide from the angry mob of users that can not use the system? You are not alone. Those are the type of questions that keep every Project Manager and System Implementer up at night.
Through collaboration with some of our... [More]

Email! That word triggers both positive and negative
reactions as this year’s holiday season gets underway. On the one hand, we want
to be sure we receive those emails with special offers for holiday shopping. On
the other, we are annoyed when we get spammed. We wonder about the thousands of
emails routed daily through automated email systems.
Automated email systems supporting a business’ IT operations
are a different story altogether. Emails may be the quickest and cheapest
mechanism for users to alert IT teams of issues.... [More]
The Challenge : Planning packages of work can provide a number of challenges, particularly for transportation type assets where the dynamic nature of the assets operations means that the asset may not be where it is supposed to be!! Maintenance facilities are resourced based on carrying out a range of maintenance tasks, they know that for a given time period they will be maintaining an asset from the fleet (or a third party client) but not necessarily which specific asset it will be, to a certain extent they do not care which asset it will...

Hello and welcome to my first post! After seeing a demonstration from Carey Clarke, Designer & Architect of IBM Maximo Transportation, I decided to write a very easy step-by-step configuration using Maximo core functionalities to manage a great need in Transportation companies - the management of retreaded tires. Introduction Currently, in organizations with a large fleet, tires management is one of the most costly activities. These organizations that have larger number of assets need to consider reuse of existing assets, like... [More]
Over the last few years I've talk to a lot of Maximo users and implementers and one of the most FAQ often asked is, "How can we keep track of attribute changes?" It's very clear that Maximo users value their data and want an ability to keep track of changes made to attributes they love the most. By default there are many type of changes which are already tracked historically, like the history of an Asset moving from one location to another or the status changes of a Work Order but if a customer adds new attributes or wants to track...

Many of us who has been working with Financial (FI) accounting
systems knows when an invoice transaction saved in the FI system, it
automatically post account entries to a General Ledger in response to
the entries being saved in the financial accounting systems.
Occasionally, an invoice produced by a financial accounting system
may need to be reversed or removed from financial records within the
General Ledgers (e.g., in case of an error without performing the
return of the goods, etc.). In order to accomplish reversal of... [More]
