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:
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).
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:
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.
