Maintaining the functional reliability of assets and their operational sustainability requires a new working method. Collect and analyze information from assets is essential to understand preventive maintenance in order to reduce operating costs. Indeed, predictive maintenance can reduce costs by 15 to 20%, improve asset availability by 20% and extend the life of machines for several years. 

If you are looking for an intuitive and easy-to-use enterprise asset management solution, IBM Maximo Application Suite is the best option for you! 

IBM Maximo Application Suite : Definition 

Maximo is the world’s leading CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management Information System). It was a solution that was originally developed by Project Software & Development (PSDI). The first commercial version was released in 1985.   

In 2005, IBM bought it and now it is available under the name of IBM Maximo Asset Management. It is a solution that allows you to have a complete vision on the assets of the company (facilities, equipment … etc.) and services (contracts, works, purchases, supply chain … etc.) 

IBM Maximo Asset Management is a solution that companies use to track the operation and preventive maintenance of assets.   

It focuses on the following types of assets :  

  • Factory and manufacturing (e.g. oil, gas, mining, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, manufacturing, food, electronics and electric power production )  
  • Infrastructure (including railroads, highways, telecommunications, water and wastewater, and electric and gas distribution systems)  
  • Real estate and facilities (e.g., in offices, schools and hospitals)  
  • Transport (for military, airlines, trucking, shipping, rail and other uses). EAM is globally known to be essential in asset-intensive industries, i.e., utilities, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, rail and transit, heavy manufacturing, and facilities such as hospitals, campuses and hotels.
