Entering virtual assets such as software as an item

  • 1.  Entering virtual assets such as software as an item

    Posted Tue February 08, 2022 09:48 AM
    I am interested in speaking with anyone who has set up virtual assets as an item within Maximo or how to handle such things as software that has to be added to a radio to make it work. I'm trying to find real case users where maybe item assembly structure was used or how anyone in the community might have faced this.

    Thanks in advance,
    Sue

    Hi Sue,

    ACM is perfect for this as you design the model such that the radio needs some software and what version it is.

    Then there is the usage of Configuration Items which can be linked to an asset and item.  These are not used much in asset management, more so for IT asset management from IBM Control Desk aka Maximo with IT bits.

    Of course, using a IAS is good.  The item should be rotating so you can use the specifications on the resulting asset to define what software version is installed.

    What is best, partly depends on it you need to track the software, its version upgrades, and where it's located.
