Planning & Scheduling for Maximo
Maximo Asset Management Software for Your Plant or Facility
The Prometheus platform’s Planning & Scheduling module provides web-based planning and scheduling solutions for maintenance management, as well as the ability to expand to preventive maintenance management, material management, and STOs (shutdowns, turnarounds, and outages). It is an out-of-the-box solution that streamlines and enhances maintenance processes with applications that fully integrate with your ERP, EAM, or CMMS solution (such as SAP, Oracle, IBM Maximo, and more), keeping a single source of truth for your data.
The user interaction and user experience of Planning & Scheduling were designed with the end-user in mind. Browser-based features, intuitive functions, and the ability to use our solution on any device ensures that users can use Planning & Scheduling effectively with minimal training in the solution itself and no training in the actual ERP, EAM, or CMMS system. The products within the Planning & Scheduling module of the Prometheus Platform maximize your Planners’ and Schedulers’ efficiency on the job and lead to a more proactive maintenance program.

What Planning & Scheduling Experts Say
"I was shocked at the ease. Everything that he was showing us, scheduling-wise, it was so easy.I told them what takes me hours, with this, I could do in no time. And it all writes back to Maximo.The other programs that we were using in the past… nothing wrote back to Maximo so you would change things but it wouldn’t get back to Maximo."

"The key to reduce our unplanned/emerging work and reduce maintenance costs is getting people on board with using AKWIRE visual suite for Maximo [now part of Prometheus Planning & Scheduling], by introducing more groups to AKWIRE [Prometheus] and everything that it can do for us."

"The best thing about Solufy [now part of Prometheus Planning & Scheduling] is they understand planning and scheduling from a maintenance perspective rather than an IT perspective. All too often, IT people think that if you plan a job for five hours, it should take five hours. IT-centric geared CMMS software is designed around perfect job plans and perfect schedules that are just not real life."

"AKWIRE [now part of Prometheus Planning & Scheduling] helped to reduce our average TTR (Time To Repair) from 27 days to 7 days over a three-month implementation period equating to approximately $25M in savings (bringing on lost production)."

"I liked vScheduler over alternatives because the processing happens on a Citrix server vs utilizing CPU on the Maximo application servers. I had heard and seen demos in the past that showed alternative solutions using a lot to process all this data. So to have it off loaded onto a different server, seemed like a better technical solution."
