Maximo HSE Application Maps – Benefits and Losses (HSE), Location Profiles (HSE)

HSE-BenLossThe Benefits and Losses (HSE) application is used to support benefit identification and loss reporting. For example, the benefits and losses associated with a Solution or an Improvement, production losses, or the impact resulting from an incident.

The application has two sub tabs. If the impact type is BENEFIT then the Losses sub tab becomes read-only. If the impact type is LOSS then the Benefit sub tab becomes read-only. There is a checkbox called “Benefit and Loss Apply” which when checked will allow both a benefit and a loss to be entered.

A Loss record can be created from the Operator Log (HSE) application as would be the case when recording a production loss. The Work Order Tracking (HSE) application can also be used to create a loss record. A follow-up investigation may be created from a Benefit and Loss record using the action Create Investigation.

Benefits can be associated with the Plans and Actuals of an Improvement record, in actual fact a loss can also be associated but this wouldn’t make sense and the screen fields are those associated with benefits. A Loss can be associated with the Job Plans (HSE), Preventive Maintenance (HSE) or Work Order Tracking (HSE) applications as a way of indicating the production impact on performing the associated work. An impact record can be associated with an incident in the Incidents (HSE) application, or a defect in the Defects (HSE) application, in both cases either a benefit or a loss can be associated.

The main table of the application is PLUSGBENEFIT and it resides at the SYSTEMORGSITE level, care will need to be taken to ensure that the benefit or loss can be associated depending on the system, organization or site level of the target application.

Impacts Tab

The header fields identify the impact and type; benefit, loss or whether both can apply.

Location Profile (HSE)

The Location Profile (HSE) application can be used for recording numeric values over a set of time periods. These values are unlikely to be held elsewhere in Maximo. They are most likely to be used on reports with other Maximo data, or as a way of providing a set of constants used in calculations.

There are three particular use cases and each of these has its own specific tab for recording the profile.

A location profile would use one of these tabs, but there is no restriction stopping multiple tabs from being used. The Type field on the main Location Profile tab could be used to conditionally show the associated tab.

The Production tab can be used for recording target and actual production output or to show the impact of a turnaround or shutdown on the production output. The Persons On Board tab can be used for capacity planning of personnel, for example the expected number of people during a turnaround or shutdown can be used for determining catering arrangements or accommodation if it is an offshore facility. The Working Time tab might be used for recording the capacity of training programmes.

The Location Profile is used on the following applications:

Location Profiles are defined at the SITE level and there is a unique key of ORGID, SITEID, PROFNUM – the Profile field. The location profile status defaults to Draft and can be changed to a status of Active or Inactive. The location profile can only be changed at Draft status, but it must be at Active status to be used in other applications. This might require the Location Profile being set to Active to link it to other records and then changed back to a status of Draft to continue to update the records especially when recording actuals on the Production tab.

Location Profile Tab

This tab provides the context for the location profile including the link to the location record.

Profile Details section

Dates section


Production Tab

This tab would be used if the Type field was set to Production. It allows production targets and actuals to be recorded for each time period.

Persons on Board Tab

This tab would be used if the Type field was set to POB. It is used for people capacity, for example the number of persons allowed on an installation, the number of people in an accommodation block, etc. The values entered in the POB Planned section fields can exceed the capacity or extended capacity. There are also no calculations, for example to show contingency as the value of capacity less crew, vendors and visitors. This calculation can be added by using a Maximo formula.
