What a great start to Pulse 2012 today with the Maximo User Groups, including the Maximo Transportation User Group, where 90 people from 32 companies participated.
The agenda included:
Kris Vogl launched into his presentation with the statement "No matter how much I spend, I can't find my stuff"........how profound was that! His presentation showed how Bombardier answered this challenge using Maximo by focusing on
He stated that one of the main problems faced by Bombardier was how descriptions were written and this was also a leading challenge for WMATA. Both companies focused on "cleansing" their data & implementing processes for naming.
John Belsner started his presentation with a great video that highlighted the life on a tanker during a storm......traditional transportation industry challenges in non-traditional places like tankers. Safety is the number 1 priority for Chevron. Chevron's solution with SRO secures the transmission of data back & forth.......SRO Data Replicator (SDR). SRO was the partner of choice because "they were able to follow instructions from Chevron religiously (no mavericks required)". To date Chevron and SRO have successfully deployed 25 tankers worldwide.
Asaf Adi from IBM Research was next up with his overview of various case studies using proactive location intelligence to analyze critical data and the challenge for the audience to develop their unique case study for IBM Research to assist with. Asaf's use cases included analyzing movement of vehicles and equipment through a mining operation to uncover high risk collision locations, discovering the correlation between vehicle routes and locations to failures, and vessel movement through a port to uncover the cause of unnecessary delays in vessel processing.
