What is the true purpose of your organization's maintenance technicians?
Think about it for a second, then read on.
Ok next question:
How are those maintenance technicians spending the majority of their time?
If your response to the second question was either "I don't know," or a silent shudder, you're going to want to download this presentation.
Sinclair Oil implemented Maximo in 1999 for the purposes of identifying and planning work, and monitoring failure reporting. From the start it was Sinclair's plan to use Maximo to continually improve and streamline the processes surrounding maintenance work.
As their Maximo data and processes matured, Sinclair determined that the next step to take to further improve organizational efficiency was to invest in planning and scheduling. Several modules of the AKWIRE Visual Suite were implemented over the next few years: vScheduler, vCalendar, vTimeSheet, and vJobPlan.
