IBM Maximo includes excellent functionality to develop a reliability program, but not enough to ensure its timely execution. Maximo Scheduler and intefaces with projet management tools such as Microsoft Project and Primavera P6 are available, but efficiently scheduling day-to-day maintenance requires a different approach than projects. Visual Planner was developed specifically to address this gap.  

Visual Planner offers a unique calendar approach, specifically designed to facilitate work week management and monitoring schedule compliance.

Visual Planner adds the functionality to quickly and easily complete all the planning and scheduling tasks required for managing day-to-day maintenance directly in Maximo.

Speed up the planning, scheduling and assignment processes. Spend less time on the keyboard and more time working with your team to achieve the highest work quality.
