City of Pompano Beach – IBM Maximo 7.6 Implementation

The mission of the City’s Utility Department is to provide superior utility service while creating exceptional value. Utilities provide water, reuse, wastewater and stormwater services in an environmentally and financially responsible way with respect to the role of government in protecting the public’s interest.

As the Utilities Director with the City has said “The water flowing out of your tap has travelled through 274 miles of pipe, and has been treated, disinfected, and tested. Our crews work day and night to inspect and replace this pipe network and continuously treat, test and monitor the quality of the water.”

To help support this mission, the City selected EDI to implement Maximo 7.6 and establish an Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) program. The assignment entailed two projects to assess and reengineer the City’s Utilities Department business processes in order to incorporate current best practices and introduce modern technology to streamline daily activities for the organization’s Reuse Treatment Plant and Water Treatment Plant.

Scope of Work Included:

  • Implementation of Maximo 7.6

  • Definition of System Hierarchies (Locations and Assets)

TBW – Computerized Maintenance Management System Implementation Services

The Florida Suncoast, with its more than 2.3 Million residents, formally created this regional Water Utility in 1998 and has a diverse collection of plants and assets spread across 3 counties which include water treatment, desalination, well fields, and a 15.5 billion gallon water reservoir. Tampa Bay Water (TBW) has operated on multiple disparate enterprise systems such as GIS, ERP, Document Repository and a homegrown second-tier Computer Maintenance Management System (CMMS), which lacked the desired synergy and return on investment (ROI) that was desired. Although they had successfully completed multiple capital improvement projects, TBW was still missing visibility into lifecycle costs and lacked insight on how to improve work to extend useful life of their assets. Ultimately, a more robust solution that supported an advanced Asset Management Program, as well as Reliability Centered Maintenance, was what TBW wanted.

Electronic Data, Inc. (EDI) was contracted to implement IBM Maximo as TBW’s CMMS, replacing the existing homegrown Enterprise Maintenance Management System (EMMS). The project consisted of installation, integration, configuration, training, documentation and project management, as well as an upgrade from Maximo 7.5 to 7.6. This project put TBW on the cutting edge of ISO 55001.

Scope of Work Included:

  • Implementation of Maximo 7.5 and (Later) Upgrade to 7.6
  • Definition of System Hierarchies (Locations and Assets)
  • Implementation of Maintenance Planning Including Job Plans and PMs
  • Implementation of Work Order Management
  • Implementation of Innovative Asset Condition Tracking to Prioritize Capital Improvements
  • Implementation of Maximo Spatial (Integration to GIS)
