AKWIRE for IBM Maximo Case Study - DTE Energy

DTE Gets Aligned for Sustainable, Continuous Process Improvement with the Right Tool–AKWIRE Visual Suite for Maximo

Consolidated view means less time spent in the application and more time spent in the field working on what matters most.

Overview

DTE Energy has used IBM’s Maximo Enterprise Asset Management application to achieve many improvements using the asset and work management functions. But, they struggled with the Planning and Scheduling of work across many different disciplines and assigning that work to the appropriate resources in a timely and efficient manner. The tedious and repetitive work of updating and scheduling work order by work order was leading to mistakes, gaps, duplicate work, and incomplete work.
This case study explores how DTE Energy used the AKWIRE vScheduler to gain new insights and better visibility to bring much-needed consistency across their vast organization.

Challenge
  • Scheduling Compliance
  • Lack of Visibility
  • Inefficient and Ineffective Resourcing
  • Out of Control Backlog
  • Inefficient Use of Time
Solution
  • Implement the RIGHT TOOLS - powerful tools that are still easy to use.
  • Gain visibility into resource availability.
  • Clean up the backlog.
Results
  • Backlog reduced by 20%-25%.
  • Efficiency increased by 30%-35%.
  • $2.7 million worth of time re-allocated to higher value tasks.
How did DTE Energy get out from under their out-of-control backlog and into a cycle of continuous, sustainable Planning and Scheduling process improvement–oh, and gain back millions of dollars in time?
