Maximo is huge, having more than 200 applications, more than 1,100 persistent tables, and more than 15,000 persistent fields to start with. Going further, Maximo can be extended with custom applications, interfaces to/from other applications and there are add-on and vertical solutions to make Maximo BIGGER.
Maximo Administrators end up with the unenviable task of leveraging the scaling capability to do more while tailoring Maximo to the end-user for what is needed, especially as it relates to WEM. We will review key areas where decisions are required to get master data set up and maintained to support the implementation, including recommendations based on many existing implementations still in use. These will include automation, preventive maintenance setup/settings, system properties, hierarchies, application modifications, domains, roles, and the use of security to streamline the user experience. The goal here is to make it easier for the user to interact with Maximo – providing more and better data for analysis and doing so in a way that is less intimidating.
