What you can do

Maximo Utilities Deliver safe, uninterrupted service The IBM® Maximo® Utilities application delivers a complete work and asset management solution for electrical transmission and distribution, power generation, gas, water and wastewater treatment. With Maximo Utilities, create work orders, schedule maintenance automatically and manage your maintenance strategy centrally for all asset classes. The application helps to extend the lifecycle of your utility infrastructure, reduce operating costs and accelerate overall optimization.

Maximo Reliability Strategies Improve asset reliability For energy and utilities companies who provide essential services, reliable operations are crucial. The IBM® Maximo® Reliability Strategies application optimizes maintenance and aligns preventive tasks with failure modes. Boost asset reliability and efficiency by using a library of 50,000 failure modes, details for over 800 asset classes, and 5,000 optimized preventive maintenance schedules. This approach helps to minimize risks, reduce outages, optimize asset performance, and enhance operations.

Maximo Health and Predict Optimize your assets with AI The IBM Maximo Health and Predict applications provide utility companies with immediate asset performance management capabilities. They use data and AI to enable smarter maintenance and replacement decision-making, which enhances asset availability by considering both historical and current asset health and future risk predictions.
