Asset Management Best Practices
What is your maintenance management strategy for production, facilities, and transportation assets? In this track we are looking for certain techniques, processes, activities, and or incentives deemed to be extremely effective/efficient in delivering world-class maintenance at your plant or facility. Presentations should highlight quantitative and qualitative ROI and Return on Asset (ROA) data such as equipment uptime, inventory carrying costs, labor utilization, and regulatory compliance. Other areas may include training, application consolidation, integration to condition monitoring, and organizational structure and function distribution.
In this track we are looking for IBM Maximo Asset Management version 7 customers to share their implementation or upgrade story from legacy versions. We are particularly interested in hearing about the planning, tools and tasks involved, post implementation/upgrade review, and the improvements you have leveraged in architecture, functionality, security, and scalability.
Introducing IBM Maximo Asset Management 7.5
This track showcases the new functionality that will be delivered in IBM Maximo Asset Management version 7.5. We are specifically looking to secure clients that have served as development partners and wish to share their experiences and input in shaping this release via agile methodologies. Presentations and discussions on collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams, and process adaptability throughout the life-cycle of the project are welcomed as well as discussions on how rapid delivery and high quality software aligns with your end-user needs and your company’s business objectives. These sessions may be teamed with IBM Maximo Asset Management development staff and or be in a panel format.
Maximo Technical Sessions
The technical sessions are designed to be co-presented by an IBM Maximo subject matter expert and a Maximo client or group of users on a panel to provide a dual perspective: learning and training from the Maximo presenter, and real-world experiences from the client. Areas of interest may include: workflow, reporting, migration, monitoring, archiving, and integration. Clients submitting an abstract will be mapped with the appropriate subject matter expert.
Maximo Utility Working Group (MUWG)
IBM is pleased to announce that the Maximo Utility Working Group (MUWG) will once again be integrated into the Pulse curriculum. Celebrating its 13th year, the MUWG agenda will focus on electric, gas, water and wastewater presentations and incorporate the new Maximo Supply Chain Users Group presentations.
