IBM Maximo® for Transportation

The challenge

Get the most from your asset data

Your transportation assets—including fleets of road and rail vehicles, aircraft and vessels—represent some of your largest investments. And you need them to be fully operational and available on demand. Our solution helps to get the data collected by automatic vehicle location (AVL), telematics or an automated fuel management system into your maintenance department directly—without the need to access another system. The data is presented and managed as an integral part of your maintenance data.


The solution

Superior technology, superior results

With IBM® Maximo® for Transportation your system can become more instrumented, as data is collected by an AVL, geo-tracking, operations and logistics, or fuel-management system.

IBM Maximo for Transportation then imports the aggregated data into an XML file format within the database, where it can be used by project managers and for monitoring warranty, life cycle analysis, fuel consumption and more.

Data analytics provide a layer of intelligence that can automatically trigger alerts to help fleet managers and maintenance operators respond to the constantly changing conditions of their assets. For example, high-priority problem codes kick off repair work orders.
