IBM Maximo Integrator
Eos Group’s Maximo Integrator technology for IBM’s Maximo Asset Management software supports integration between Maximo work orders and Sage Estimating estimates. The bi-directional integration leverages the IBM Maximo Enterprise Adaptor (MEA) web services platform and Extensible Markup Language (XML) data streams.
Eos employs the flexibility of Eos Explorer Extended to integrate user workflows between Maximo work orders and Sage Estimating. Once a Maximo work order is created, users initiate an automated process that creates a supporting estimate. Eos Explorer Extended creates and configures the supporting Sage estimate based on the information entered in the Maximo work order.
The estimators develop the estimate using Sage Estimating items, Smart Assemblies, and parametric models. Once complete, the estimator draws on Eos Explorer Extended’s rules-based validation capabilities to inspect all the estimate data and ensure the estimate meets data quality requirements. Errors and warnings guide the estimator to correct any estimate data to align with corporate policies. Once the estimate passes all the validation tests, Eos Maximo Integrator transfers the estimate data to the originating Maximo work order for inclusion in the Work Order Tracking System.
