The IBM Maximo Asset Management enterprise suite comes with six management modules to support your asset management needs.

Asset Management
The Asset Management module helps users to more efficiently track and manage asset and location data throughout the asset lifecycle. Be it failure reporting, condition monitoring, meters or just normal tracking of asset details and locations, IBM Maximo ensures users are in control of all their assets.

Work Management
Right from initial work request and work order generation through completion and recording of actuals, the Work Manager helps work planners to manage both planned and unplanned maintenance activities. Not only can users analyze resources, inventory and equipment use and costs (using tracking tools), but they can also optimize maintenance schedules and labor use (with the graphical assignment manager) to assign the right person with the right skills to the right job. Preventative maintenance activities can also be scheduled thereby reducing unplanned downtime and reactive maintenance activities.

Service Management
The Service Management system allows users to create and track service requests as well as update open service requests. Users can apply service management best practices by clearly defining service offerings, establish service level agreements (SLAs), more proactively monitor service level delivery against established metrics and also implement escalation procedures.

Contract Management
The Contract Management system helps users to have better control over vendor contracts and provides complete support for purchase, lease, rental, warranty, labor rate, software, master, blanket and user-defined contracts. Users can identify unreliable vendors or low-quality products and even reference SLA performance metrics by linking SLAs to vendor contracts (contract correlation), apply standardized policies across the organization (terms and conditions library), and receive automatic alerts and notifications.

Inventory Management
The Inventory Management functionality records material movements and adjustments, allowing for real-time inventory tracking, reporting and auditing. Users can optimize and plan inventory to meet maintenance demand and also reduce costs by eliminating excess or obsolete inventory thereby streamlining the Inventory Management process.

Procurement Management
The Procurement Management system supports all the phases of enterprise-wide procurement such as direct purchasing and inventory replenishment. Users can use the Vendor Management and vendor performance analysis tools to analyze vendor reliability and inventory quality, schedule automated procurement to improve purchasing efficiency and measure procurement performance using in-built analysis tools through the procurement management system.
