Version 6 Project

  • 3 stakeholders…NIE, IBM and Northgate Information Systems (NIS), the desktop provider for NIE.

  • Implemented in IE6 within a Citrix environment.

  • Circa. 50 users, across 7 locations.

  • ‘Train the trainer’ approach. NIS and NIE staff trained by IBM. NIE users then trained by NIE staff.

  • Rollout briefed across organisation.

  • Downtime limited to two working days.

Configuration

  • Oracle triggers. Redefined in version 6, using Crossover Domains.

  • Training. Three sessions for every user, a sandpit, and post go-live handholding.

  • Actuate reporting. Conversion from Business Objects and Access.

  • Screen design. Fidelity with version 4, but also harnessing the additional features from version 6.

  • Organisational structure including user names.


Initial user testing

Training carried out in October 2007

Planned to take place 1 week before Go-Live

Training completed with demo data

Roadmap Prioritisation

  • Legislative requirement? Are we obliged to deliver certain elements to comply with legislation?

  • Regulatory requirement? What information does the regulator demand from NIE?

  • Business benefit?

  • Promotion of Maximo?

  • Effort…do we need to employ IBM or an IBM partner? Do we need to employ NIS or other business partner?

  • Cost. Not just in financial terms, but in terms of resources.

Mobile Working

  • Approval and Sanction granted for Maximo Mobile

  • To replace 10,000 paper inspections per year.

  • 20 devices initially deployed, rising to 50.

  • Digital image collection, for immediate action on defects.

  • 3G infrastructure, backed up by docking as required.

  • Maps, diagrams, ISO procedures in the field.

  • May move towards GPS.

  • First pass removes clerical resource requirement of 1.5FTE.

TETRA Development

  • Terrestrial Trunked Radio (professional mobile radio and two way transceiver.)

  • Blue Light Services - Government Agencies and Emergency Response

  • Rolled out to Orange Light Services (utilities)

  • TETRA voice implemented in NIE 2007

  • Used for all High Voltage Switching from site to Control centre

  • Intention to deploy Maximo via TETRA

Defect Management

  • Coded, rather than free text, output from Mobile.

  • Defects attached to relevant assets and locations.

  • Escalations and Workflow used to route defects to the relevant resource.

  • Where defects are not resolved, Maximo provides escalation through the organisation.

  • Visibility of defect issues not currently available, and some of these defects will be safety critical.

  • Longer term – integrated GIS to allow effective area working.

Conclusions

  • Maximo 6 provides significant ‘out of the box’ functionality improvements that can be easily accessed by the end user for quick and powerful gain.

  • Mobile working elevates basic inspection tasks to new levels. Defect capture, prioritisation and resolution all gain major improvements.

  • Maximo 6 provides the platform for true Condition Based Maintenance. It provides the ability to integrate Plant and the Asset Management system, to harness real-time condition information, allowing maintenance decisions to be focussed and cost-effective.


Long term partnership

There are currently 20 upgrade projects to be implemented over the next three years

NIE are keen to sign a 3 year framework contract to implement these 20 projects

These projects will significantly improve Asset Management within NIE

Expand Maximo to other parts of the business

Long term Partnership
