Tube Lines selects ActiveG MapEngine

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
