Maximo Bite Size

Coming Soon

Since the start of the year, I embarked on a podcasting course. I’ve not actually narrated a podcast yet, but I am working up to doing so. I will start with a personal podcast called ‘The Diary of a Digital Nobody’ where I expect to get few listeners, it is about my non-Maximo life.

Once I have worked out how to speak, I will launch Maximo Bite Size. Short episodes of a few minutes which will help a listener with the functional knowledge to take the Maximo Application Suite functional certification. This page will morph into a place where you can listen to the episodes or read the transcripts.

Below you will find the latest transcripts. When I have completed a whole section, I will add them to their own page, a chapter. The first chapter on Asset Management is complete. Currently, I am working on Maintenance Planning, which will cover the Resources, Planning and Preventive Maintenance modules.

  • Service Requests with Multiple Assets/Locations
    A Service Request, Incident or Problem can reference multiple assets, locations and configuration items in a table called ‘Multiple Assets, Locations and CIs’. We’ll discuss how you can select records into this table and what options there are when you create a work order from […]
