Maximo 5.0—Dashboard and KPIs

MRO Software’s Maximo now offers managers more control over corporate assets.

MRO Software, Inc. has just released version 5.0 of its flagship Maximo asset management solution which now supports Key Performance Indicator (KPI) reporting and a performance management ‘Dashboard’. Maximo users now have immediate access to personalized metrics of asset performance.


Users can customize Dashboard layout and content with dynamic graphs, gauges and lists to display role-related information. Operational goals can be established and monitored in what is described as a ‘strategic, enterprise-wide approach’ to asset management. The Maximo Dashboard lets users react to potential problems and opportunities.


The new KPI Manager includes a range of pre-defined KPIs such as Mean Time to Fail, Actual-to-Plan Variance, and Preventive Maintenance (PM) Work Orders Overdue. Custom KPIs can be added to align users metrics with organizational goals.


Maximo product marketing director Rich Caplow said, ‘The flexibility our customers gain from the variety of KPIs allows them to have the critical metrics available to run their business and make decisions based on real-time information.’ Maximo is a component-based software solution leveraging Sun’s Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE).


Science Applications International (SAIC) recently included Maximo as part of its Integrated Services Management Center (ISMC) offering. SAIC now offers Maximo as a component of its managed services portfolio. SAIC provides a variety of outsourced IT solutions to the energy sector.

Earnings doubled

MRO Software reported ‘solid performance’ for 2003—with a doubling of earnings. Oil sector clients now include BP, China National Offshore Oil Company and Kerr-McGee.
