The Maximo BI Packs enable your Maximo power users to independently explore, visualize and analyze Maximo data.    Within these workspaces, these users can create, modify and share their content highlighting areas critical to your business.

To highlight the configurability and dynamic display of this functionality, four different work order workspaces have been designed to present visualizations of work order metrics in varying views. These views can be dynamically re-configured enabling you to focus on content most critical in your environment. By varying the filters on each workspace page – the user is able to very quickly view the metrics in the manner most important to him.  So whether he is interested in viewing the work order metrics by PM Worktype, for a site’s Critical Assets or by Safety Work Order Classification – the Work Order Management Workspaces enable that capability. An example of the Work Priority Workspace is shown below.

The 4 Work Order Workspaces include

1.  Work Type Workspace

The Work Type Workspace enables you to view Work Order metrics by filtering on Site and Work Type.  Four metrics are initially displayed in the Workspace – Backlog Work Orders, Overdue Work Orders, Unplanned Work Orders and Actual to Estimated Costs. Filtering your work orders by work type is a key best practice.   Using the filters, you can quickly display these metrics to view you’re the data in a variety of ways including

                  Preventive Maintenance Work Order Metrics  (Filter by Work Type = PM)

                  Emergency Work Order Metrics (Filter by Work Type = EM)

                  Reactive Work Order Metrics (Filter by Work Type = EM and CM)

2.  Work Priority Workspace

You can assign priorities to your work orders to highlight the most critical work to all members of your organization.   These priorities may be based on Safety related work, critical Capital Projects with non-negotiable schedule dates or preventative maintenance work related to key locations or your business.

Within the Work Priority Workspace, you can then focus on your most critical work orders by filtering on Site and Work Priority.    This quickly gives you insight to view your  Backlog Work Orders, Overdue Work Orders, Unplanned Work Orders and Actual to Estimated Costs by highest priority.

3.  Critical Assets Workspace

Your business relies on critical assets within your organization.   These assets may be vital to production processes, reliability of your operation, or safety processes.    Critical assets are identified in Maximo in the field, Asset Priority.

Using the Critical Asset Workspace, you can manage the work orders related to your most critical assets.  by filtering on Asset Priority and Site.    This quickly gives you insight on you’re the Backlog, Overdue and Unplanned Work Orders for these critical assets, along with a historical view of their estimated to actual costs.  

4.  Classifications Workspace

Classifications can be used to further categorize your work orders.   This can enable you to better understand where your work load is.  This can be especially important in your Work Order Backlog – so you can better plan labor, materials, services and tools to minimize any Overdue Work Orders.

Classifications provide an additional dynamic attribute that your data analyst can query on to get a better understanding of your work orders.    Whether the classification provides additional details on the categorization of work – like Electrical, Plumbing, or Mechanical – or additional details on the Work Order Type – Safety Operations, Safety Chemicals, Safety Machinery – this information provides key data for future preventative and planning purposes.
