AKWIRE for IBM Maximo Case Study - Cornell University

Cornell University Streamlines Scheduling and Makes Funds Go Further Using "The Moneyball Approach" and the Right Tools

AKWIRE enables dialogue, evidence-based decision-making, and becomes the new standard for Planning and Scheduling excellence.


As one of the most prestigious schools in the world, Cornell University attracts top researchers and academics from around the globe. As such, the institution faces unique consequences during planned and unplanned downtime, facilities closures, and maintenance activities on campus. These events can impact programs such as research, outreach, and teaching and displace thousands of students, staff, and faculty.

This case study examines how Cornell University uses the AKWIRE vScheduler to gain consistency, facilitate informed conversations, and get more value for their maintenance dollars.
