Maximo training is delivered at many points during your implementation:
- High level overviews and potentially deep dives during sales cycle
- Initially to onboard and educate your implementation team for both technical and functional aspects
- During customization, configuration and tailoring as prepared for ‘go-live’
- During end-user rollout / ‘go-live’
- On-going for changes in roles and personnel
In short, it never stops. So, when was the last training session at your facility? Any changes in personnel that are users? How do they get on-boarded into their responsibilities with Maximo? Implementation done and you are in full production for Maximo? Training may not be fully complete, but it usually is considered complete soon after you are up and running in production. Over time users change roles and even leave. What do you do then?
Hopefully, you have a training staff/person and documentation to take over and onboard the new users into their roles. If this is not the case, here are a few reminders.
In general, users need an overview of Maximo capabilities so they have a basic understating of how the modules and applications work together, even though their specific access may be limited.
They also need to understand how to navigate and search, and fortunately, Maximo navigation and search is consistent throughout the different applications.
Lastly, all users should be able to run reports they have access to, as well as different options for running them, including Query Based Reporting if they will have the need and access.
Once this is done, users will need to get into their specific focus areas and for most implementations, they start in one or more of these areas:
- Job Plans and Preventive Maintenance
- Inventory Management
- Work Management
