Pinned topic Maximo for Transportation - Philisophical question around sites/assets

‏2012-09-27T20:15:10Z |
Hello,

I'm interested in how Transportation users have defined Sites for assets that have no consistent home base.
I'm thinking about buses/trains etc.

I'm curious about how people have chosen the site to use or if they have created some kind of non-specific site e.g. railway.
A non-specific site doesn't seem a great option.

Any thoughts would be appreciated?

    Hi robbinma,
    I only came across two types/philosophies:
    1. The main base were most maintenance is done at
    2. Abstracted sited, as you suggest
    But the question you are trying to get answered may be a different one:
    What do you plan on defining site-level that would hamper either option?

    Hi maxmix.

    That is an interesting point.
    I will talk to the relevant people and get them to consider that question.

    Thanks.

    Hi, robbinma.

    How are your deals with Maximo for Transportation for now?

    As for question, my opinion to use multisite are:
    1. Do sites have different GLs?
    2. Are sites different legal entity?
    3. Is there too many assets? (how many dispatchers control them?)

    PS: 4. do sites have very different types of vehicles? (cars / buses / boats...)
