ActiveG at Spring 2014 Maximo Utility Working Group (MUWG)

ActiveG is a proud participant at Maximo Utility Working Group’s (MUWG) Spring 2014 Workshop, in Sarasota, FL, May 5-7, 2014.

If you’re attending the workshop, stop by the ActiveG booth to see the latest spatial goodness for core Maximo and mobile Maximo.

The MAXIMO Utility Working Group (MUWG) is an industry group representing over 145 utility companies, counties and cities throughout the U.S., Canada, China, South Africa, Pakistan, Japan, and the Caribbean that exchange information related to the implementation and application of the MAXIMO asset management system. Two workshops are held each year, one in the Spring/Summer, the other in Fall/Winter. If you are a licensed MAXIMO user and meet the criteria of the charter you can attend a workshop.

Tube Lines selects ActiveG MapEngine

Tube Lines Limited (London, UK) and their implementation partner Enterprise AMS Group have selected ActiveG™ MapEngine™ as the spatial integration for Tube Lines’ IBM Maximo 7.5 system, as a key component of their Asset Management Improvement Program (AMIP).

MapEngine will deliver advanced spatial integration of Tube Lines’ Intergraph GIS maps in their Maximo enterprise asset management (EAM) system, providing users with dynamic visualization and map-based creation of work orders, service requests, routes, and more.

“The seamless integration of the existing GIS system by literally taking it inside of Maximo 7.5 will enable our Planners to create maintenance work packages using spatial information. This will make better use of the very limited maintenance window that is available each night by reducing walking time between jobs.

It will also enable our Strategic Planners to visually see the interaction between different asset classes at any given location. For example, we can see how poor condition drainage assets affect the performance of track and signaling assets. This information will inform decisions about major renewals and ensure that investment is targeted in the areas that will have the biggest impact on the overall performance of the railway”

James Foley, Implementation Manager, Tube Lines AMIP Program

ActiveG InformME Wins IBM Tivoli Best of Show Award

AIBM Business Partner Award - Best of ShowctiveG won the IBM Tivoli Best of Show Award for its InformME product on March 2, 2013 at the IBM Pulse Convention in Las Vegas, NV.  ActiveG displayed InformME’s ability to create and manage work orders and assets visually, in a mobile environment.

During the competition involving 10 other IBM Business Partner solutions, ActiveG’s team demonstrated how InformME, built on the Interloc Mobile Informer platform, helps mobile users organize work based on location in disconnected GIS environment.  The judges were impressed with InformME’s ability to create and update linear work orders by drawing on the mobile map to mark the areas of work, and then see that information replicated in core Maximo.

Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority chooses activeG MapEngine

The Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority has chosen activeG MapEngine as its spatial integration for Maximo.  MapEngine will deliver advanced spatial integration of ESRI ArcGIS maps for the Water Authority’s Maximo enterprise asset management (EAM) system, providing users with dynamic visualization and map-based creation of work orders, service requests, routes, and more.    “We’re excited to deliver our advanced spatial solutions for the Maximo users at the Water Authority, ” said Don Anderson, managing partner at activeG.

“The activeG MapEngine will allow us to increase the efficiency in managing the maintenance of over 600,000 assets,” said Water Authority Chief Information Officer Chris Framel.  “Our supervisors will be able to visually manage work crews from within Maximo using the activeG MapEngine as assets, work orders and assigned crews will be visible and easily identifiable. An additional cost saving benefit of activeG is the ability to create routes that will minimize windshield time and maximize wrench time for our crews from each of our five divisions. The activeG MapEngine is the final piece we needed to  complete the implementation of a true enterprise asset management system.”

MapEngine and RulesManager Now Power Up Maximo Together

As a result of our recently-announced partnership with Total Resource Management, activeG is proud to offer integration between TRM RulesManager and activeG MapEngine, unlocking Maximo with the power of rules-based transactions driven through MapEngine’s spatial interface.

Ever wished you could do things like:

  • On an array of work orders in a given geographic region, set the work order lead to a specified person?
  • Change the parent of selected work orders to a new or other work order for grouping common work based on location?
  • Set the GL account, work code, any other attribute on work orders selected on a map?

All this is now possible without the need of complicated MBO programming.  Instead, create JavaScript-based rules in RulesManager that leverage MapEngine’s spatial functionality.

The bottom line:

  • Use MapEngine’s map-based GUI to query/select assets, locations, work orders and more–with or without spatial criteria, then…
  • Use RulesManager to take the data gathered on the map and do basic-to-complex transactions simply, doing the heavy lifting in Maximo.
