AKWIRE for IBM Maximo Case Study - Aviation R&D Facility

Cutting-Edge Aviation R&D Facility Cuts Scheduling Time and Gets the Analytics They Need to Analyze Assets

Better Planning and Scheduling increases innovation and supports new product development.


At this world-leading aviation research and development facility, it wasn't the volume of maintenance work orders that was causing scheduling headaches; it was the ineffective and outmoded scheduling tools that were taking up dozens of hours of employee time to create a simple schedule.
This case study explores how this aviation R&D facility uses the AKWIRE Visual Suite, including MPower, vScheduler, vCalendar and vJobPlan, to decrease scheduling time and to create the in-depth analytics reports they need to monitor their assets.
