I'm new to Maximo and need some guidance on the best way to approach an issue.
Physical plant has a lot of cleaning type equipment used by custodial personnel, such as vacuum cleaners, floor scrubbers/buffers etc.
We are trying to determine the best method to use in Maximo to track this equipment by campus/building/floor.
No sure which option would be best. For instance, manage as an asset, tools, inventory item etc, just not sure which way would be best. We are trying to satisfy a audit requirement.
Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
If this equipment can be uniquely identified then locations and assets should nicely meet the requirement. The location hierarchy structure would define the campus/building/floor, then each asset would be assigned a location. There's a Type attribute on the asset record that could be used to categorize the asset, making it easy to distinguish custodial assets from normal facilities assets.
If / when the asset moves, Maximo tracks the move and move history.
If you need more functionality and security control, there's lots more you can do to manage a type of asset so that can be explored depending on requirements.
And, of course, there are additional functions native to Maximo for work orders and PMs for assets as well as purchasing and inventory of the assets.
