Did you miss the April 14th meeting of the Southern California Maximo User Group? No worries, we've got you covered! Interloc Solutions was in attendance to provide you with the highlights of this engaged Maximo community!
The more than 65 Maximo folks in attendance were hosted by Randy McDaniel and UCLA. UCLA shared their Maximo upgrade experience -- with the big takeaway being that your enterprise asset management experience is "a journey, not a destination." Your business is constantly improving; your EAM solutions must keep up with your business.
Interlocking with that theme were several presentations by IBM. One that gave insights into reasons why you should take the plunge and do a Maximo upgrade, sharing Maximo Version 7 highlights. Another revolved around the theme of managing linear assets with Maximo Linear Asset Management Version 7.1 and new functionality -- from extending the definition of an asset to allowing relationships to be identified as "reference points."
Capping off the day was a Maximo case study given by the Metropolitan Water District of California, showcasing their enhanced work order flow process using assignment manager. The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California is a consortium of 26 cities and water districts that provides drinking water to nearly 18 million people in parts of Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties.
