Features, advantages and benefits
|Commitment Tracking||Identifies commitments made to external or internal bodies and tracks progress where action is required.||Allows organizations to prioritize and track compliance with business and regulatory commitments.|
|Surveillance Requirements||Captures tech spec directives and surveillance requirements. Makes relevant data available in associated work objects, including impact plans, PM records, and work orders. Provides advanced scheduling capabilities for recurrent test activities and related events across multiple components and units.||Helps organizations to manage the test schedules that are required for license renewal.|
|Vendor Qualifications||Supports vendor management by identifying vendors that provide quality-level items. Tracks vendor status and QA audit dates.||Addresses the need to build regulatory qualification and test procedures into vendor management processes.|
|Technical and Quality Terms||Identifies technical terms for specific procurement items and specific quality terms for vendors.||Allows procurement engineers to specify the criteria for procurement of plant equipment.|
|Equipment Reliability||Captures static and dynamic data elements to support equipment reliability and related decsions. Data elements include PRA and GRA values, maintenance rule ID, tech spec ID, and asset quality level.||Helps organizations to leverage complex sets of data to drive preventive and corrective action programs|
|Quick Assets and Locations||Provides the ability to rapidly create locations and assets for use in clearances, lineups and work orders. Quick locations and assets may be promoted to the full version later and entered into the engineering configuration management process.||Allows operations and other groups outside of the engineering organization to create equipment records in Maximo for operational configuration control or other designated purposes. These records are distinct from full locations and assets.|
|Equipment Groups||Groups related pieces of equipment together for work management and scheduling purposes. Makes equipment groups available for use on work objects, including work orders, PM records, permits, and clearances.||Facilitates scheduling and increases the efficiency of work performance.|
|Impact Plans||Anticipates the plant challenges associated with maintenance, including tech spec LCOs, retest, equipment unavailability, notifications, and permits. Identifies the actions needed to minimize vulnerability and makes relevant data available in associated work objects, including work orders and PM records. Provides data to external decision support tools.||Helps organizations to identify risks and to manage events that challenge safe operation of the nuclear work environment.|
|Clearances and Tagging||Establishes safe working boundaries for maintenance and test activities. Allows operations staff to configure and dynamically control the positioning of tagged plant components. Provides automated features including tag sharing, conflict checking, clearance templates, clearance hierarchies, and default restoration positions for standby, test, and operational lineups. Integrates fully with other Maximo asset management processes.||Helps organizations to satisfy operational and regulatory requirements for plant configuration control of tagged components. Provides full accountability for plant configuration status, component positioning, and independent verification. Provides controlled options for restoration alignment.|
|Lineup Plans and Lineups||Provides the ability to establish, revise, manage and validate operational configurations. Enables comprehensive tracking of component positioning throughout the plant, recognizing both operator walk-downs as well as clearance and tagging operations. The lineup process is built on the foundation of asset and location positions. All capabilities are fully integrated with clearance operations.||Provides lineup controls that support efficiency and tight integration of configuration requirements with work management processes. Satisfies the requirement to manage and document component positioning and independent verification in accordance with system operating and other operational and test procedures.|
|Permits||Provides support for developing and managing the permit types that are required for plant operations, maintenance, and engineering activities. Integrates with associated work objects in Maximo and specialized radiation work permit systems.||Helps organizations to standardize and manage specialized permit processes.|
|Corrective Actions||Enables plant personnel to initiate, manage, and complete corrective actions related to plant equipment, processes, and personnel performance in a timely manner. Captures the data that is required for analysis, classification, trending, and assessment of operating experience. A companion self-service application provides a simplified user interface to encourage a low threshold for condition reporting.||Helps organizations to improve plant performance and address licensing requirements by providing support for corrective action programs. Maps to the standard closed-loop model of performance monitoring: analyzing, identifying, planning, and implementing solutions. Close integration of corrective action activities with the work management system facilitates the assessment of actual trends and results in both programs.|
|Configuration Change Management||Enables plant personnel to initiate and manage configuration changes that affect locations, assets, and configuration items. Leverages change and release functionality to provide full support for the change management process, covering specification of changes, engineering approval, in-plant implementation, and promotion.||Allows nuclear operators to control changes to the design and engineering specifications for all components. Eliminates costly interfaces by enabling nuclear operators to manage and maintain configuration changes in Maximo.|
|Nuclear kiosk applications||Provides single-page applications that are designed for data entry of field data, including clearances, lineups, clearances sign-on and sign-off, and condition reports that initiate the corrective actions program.||Can be deployed on field computers (stationary or hand-held). Supports rapid user sign-in and sign-out with full Maximo security. Efficiently accepts the field data that is required for Maximo nuclear processes.|
|Nuclear workflow (SNPM)||
Provides a complete set of workflows to support the Standard Nuclear Performance Model (SNPM).
Predefined workflows can be used as they are or configured to suit unique site requirements.
|Helps organizations to implement best practices for work management, equipment reliability, materials and services, and corrective actions. Allows nuclear operators to combine the inherent EAM business functionality in IBM Maximo for Nuclear Power with the robust capabilities of Maximo Configuration.|
|Reports||Detailed nuclear reports address work management, equipment reliability, materials and services, corrective action, and cost effectiveness at a nuclear power station.||Provides appropriate decision support by leveraging the data and KPIs that derive from nuclear EAM activities.|
IBM Maximo for Nuclear Power manages the life cycle of assets across nuclear plants and fleets by streamlining and automating key asset management processes.
