Maximo Asset Configuration Manager 184.108.40.206 new features
Maximo Asset Configuration Manager is an add-on solution for the core Maximo Asset Management product. Maximo Asset Configuration Manager 220.127.116.11 is supported by Maximo Asset Management 18.104.22.168 or later.
Maximo Asset Configuration Manager is designed to support complex components that have many sub-parts and that require careful planning and maintenance execution. Currently, Maximo Asset Configuration Manager is used in the aerospace, defense, and rail sectors where safety and regulatory compliance is of primary importance, particularly in the area of tracking the status of historical changes to the asset configuration and its components.
Several new features and improvements were implemented in this new feature pack:
Formula (Calculated) Meters Specific to a Model:
You can relate a formula meter to a specific model. The Model (CM) application was changed to display only formulas that are tied to the current model or those formulas that are not associated with any model. Also, the dynamic meter calculation was changed to default to the formula with the same name as the meter on the model of the asset.
Robbery checkbox selection allowed after work order is approved:
You can now edit the robbery checkbox field after the work order status is changed to approved.
Maximo Asset Configuration Manager currently supports the ability to define that a ‘robbery’ is required to support operational requirements. In the case of robbery, an asset is taken from one parent asset and installed into another parent asset. Now, the decision to perform the robbery action may occur at any point in the work order lifecycle up to the point of completion of the work order.
Slot dates supporting extended maintenance periods:
In the Maintenance Location (CM) application, you can use the slot planning feature to allocate work packages into pre-defined 'availability periods'. You can now extend a maintenance period within an availability period, where the maintenance event can take longer than the defined availability period. To accomplish this, the availability period can be edited regardless of its status. Also, you can now save more than one conflicting availability periods.
Changes to the Munition process on the Flight Log Book application:
Loading and unloading of weapons in the Flight Log Book application is now directly related to the inventory issue and return processes. You can more accurately manage munitions, and munition firing analysis is possible across the entire fleet. A new system setting option was added so you can decide if this feature is enabled. Also, some changes in the item master, inventory, and flight log book applications were made. The changes to these applications are only visible when the new system setting is set to true.
Changes to the Replenishment process on the Flight Log Book application:
Replenishment of fuels, oil, etc. in the Flight Log Book application is now directly related to the inventory issue and return processes. You can more accurately manage replenishments, and replenishment analysis is possible across the entire fleet. A new system setting option was added so you can decide if this feature is enabled. Also, some changes in the item master, inventory, and flight log book applications were made. The changes to these applications are only visible when the new system setting is set to true.
