Transportation Asset Management
For more than 30 years, we’ve worked with companies from all corners of the transportation industry – from port authorities and airports, to roads and rail. We’ve not only successfully helped our clients meet strict health and safety regulations but achieve cost efficiencies and quality services within the business.
Managing the challenges
Safety, productivity, and visibility are all fundamental in the transportation industry. With our in-depth knowledge and experience, we’ve helped companies achieve this and more.
Through our unique solutions developed to work with BESA we have helped many companies overcome the challenges of complying with changing safety requirements and regulations with success.
With the use of predictive maintenance and analytics, we’ve also given service-oriented businesses greater visibility across their processes. This has given them real-time insight into their processes, so they can identify and deal with potential disruptions before they affect a service.
Our clients have achieved their return on investment with our assistance in mobilising their workforce resulting in, not only increased productivity, but further visibility in the field.

You use IBM Maximo Asset Configuration Manager to manage the configuration of high-value, complex, and regulated assets such as aircraft, rail vehicles, engines, weapon systems, and so on. Maximo Asset Configuration Manager is a rules-based configuration management system.
Maximo Asset Configuration Manager ensures that the actual physical build of an asset meets the requirements of an allowable configuration. Its Build Data Interpreter (BDI) provides comprehensive status derivation for aircraft and other configuration-managed assets. For example, the Build Data Interpreter checks an actual aircraft, position by position, to ensure that its configuration rules comply with its nominated configuration. The Build Data Interpreter reports the status of noncompliant assets in the Assets (CM) application. It also alerts you to problem assets through color-coded data in various applications.
