BCAD – IBM Maximo Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) Services

The Broward County Aviation Department (BCAD) manages the operations at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and North Perry Airport (HWO), which serves the needs of more than 36 million commercial airline and general aviation community travelers throughout South Florida. BCAD has been using Maximo as their Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solution for a while, but knew they weren’t getting all the value they could out of the system. Between incomplete data and inconsistent processes, many groups within the organization were struggling to adopt the system as a natural part of day to day operations. A partner was sought to help them address the department’s most pressing needs, which included:

  • Improved Financial management by establishing reliability centered maintenance (RCM) best practices
  • Sustainability policies through improved asset energy utilization and conservation
  • Airport regulatory compliance practices
  • Airport safety management systems
  • Airside and landside asset data collection
  • Airport enterprise resource programs integration
  • Airport geographical information systems integrations
  • Airport property management systems integrations
  • Airport mobile solutions

Electronic Data, Inc. (EDI) was selected to address the BCAD’s noted needs by providing professional services to improve the use of IBM’s Maximo Enterprise Asset Management (EAM).

Scope of Work Included:

EDI is implementing our Strategic Asset Management (eSAM) solution, which is a pre-configured IBM Maximo 7.6 solution set. Specific functional areas implemented using eSAM standard processes included:

  • Work/Service Requests
  • Work Order Management
  • Asset Lifecycle Management
  • Airfield Operations Management (including Part 139 Airfield Inspections and SMS)
  • GIS and BIM Integration

EDI is also implementing the Arora ATLAS® for Work Management platform, which integrates ESRI GIS maps and data with Maximo Work Order functionality in the hands of a technician. Using this tool, the BCAD’s technicians can create and complete Inspections and create findings, as well as execute Maximo Work Orders, all within the geospatial context, making sure they are at the right place, at the right time, with the right tools, and collecting the right data.

Data standardization and collection is also a focus of this project. EDI provided BCAD with the tools and processes necessary to perform data collection and migration in support of the processes and data changes required during the implementation. As part of the implementation, an integration with the Maximo 7.6 system was created for both BIM and GIS systems.
