Employing Maximo for Transportation, you can effectively manage your fleet’s performance. Utilizing the solution will enable you to track the Life Cycle of your assets and increase the reliability and availability of your fleet. Whether your fleet consists of vehicles, buses or rail cars, the benefits can be realized in a relatively short period of time.
Asset Life Cycle details are tracked as soon as the asset is registered in the system with details such as purchase price, depreciation value, repair limits and other vital statistics. Maintenance history is maintained throughout the entire life of the asset and can be utilized to develop the optimum maintenance strategy for your fleet. Developing an effective maintenance strategy will help ensure that the reliability and availability levels are maintained. Maintaining accurate history on the asset will enable the owners to make the smart decisions when it comes time to retire the asset. Maximo maintains the details when the assets are phased out of the fleet.
Utilizing Maximo can help an organization realize considerable savings. Making use of the tools which support planned maintenance versus reactive maintenance will help manage costs for maintenance labor and materials. Maintenance costs are considerably less to maintain assets from a planned perspective versus reactive.
Inventory levels can be kept at a lower level in an environment where the enterprise asset management solution supports planned maintenance. It reduces the need for stocking extra quantities for emergency breakdowns. In addition to realizing savings with lower inventory levels, more attention can be paid to establishing cost-savings contracts with vendors rather than spending time with emergency purchases.
Using Maximo in a fleet environment can keep your assets running reliably and increase the availability of your fleet vehicles. To view a summarized version, go to the following link.
