IBM Maximo for Revit 2013
Autodesk labs have recently released IBM Maximo integrated for Revit. In short, Maximo is an asset / building lifecycle management process scheduler. The current release, IBM Maximo Asset Management 7.5 is scalable and coded for easy integration into third party programs, such as Revit.
“IBM Maximo Asset Management software provides asset lifecycle and maintenance management for all asset types on a single platform. It is used to help maximize the value of critical business and IT assets over their lifecycles with workflows by enforcing best practices that yield benefits for all types of assets, including transportation, production, delivery, facilities etc”
Maximo is designed for and fully effective post-production of a building. Richly attributed data about building assets that are developed in Revit during the building design and construction phases, can be published directly into Maximo during commissioning or at building “handover”, thus supporting more immediate and effective use of Maximo once the building is occupied.
“The Revit Maximo integration supports the COBie data specification and visualization of model assets inside Maximo, in context with Maximo applications and processes, to foster more efficient work order management and building maintenance activities.The integration consists of an add-in to Revit 2013 products and integrated visualization of Autodesk® BIM 360 TM Glue inside Maximo version 7.1 or newer.”
There is still a limited amount of information about this add-in for Revit and I am looking for companies or individuals who have tried out and have experience with the software. Please get in contact with me if you could share some more information. Peacock Engineering and Asset Partners have suggested they are already using the software but limited information is available publicly.
