Setup Info for MAHI (Maximo Asset Health Insight)


Hi,   Asset Health Insight has been released!


I recently visited a factory with iot device attached to assets so work orders can be generated during certain condition.  Below is some MAHI setup info:

1. In Maximo, go to the Assets application
2. Go to the Meters tab, attach meter(s) to assets

3 Go to "Enter Meter Reading" action and enter a meter Reading

4. Create a Saved Query to bring up some assets e.g. Portable Water Pumps

5. Go to the Security Groups application and create a Reliability Engineering Security Group with default application set to RELENGINEER



6. Grant access to the Reliability Engineering Work Center




7. Go to the Users tab and add a user (i.e. the reliability engineer)



8. Open a browser and Go to the Work Center   e.g. http://hostname/maximo-x

Login as the reliability Engineer


9. Click "Add Cards" to add a new card (on far right hand corner)


10. Create a new card as follows:
Insight App = Asset

Click the Save button
