Inventory management supports overall the processes of tracking, managing and ordering of consumable inventory.
The Inventory Management application is called Maximo. Maximo is a web-based system that simplifies the overall processes of tracking, managing and ordering of consumable inventory. Maximo allows users to collect, consolidate and analyze essential inventory information, improve operations through inventory availability, reliability and utilization, unifying processes for inventory management functions across multiple sites, and reducing inventory costs and control spending. Maximo helps inventory managers by providing optimized planning, control, audit, and compliance capabilities.
The Start Center in Maximo is a customizable dashboard. It serves as a Home Page and a central point for viewing key information such as performance indicators that monitor inventory balances and reorder points and trigger automated actions based on a changing database. Users can create, assign, notify, and report on key process components such as inventory stores, item supply levels, ordering metrics, and usage goals. After logging into Maximo, users can navigate using pages, menus, links, tabs and buttons. Each page has four main sections: Header bar, Toolbar, Main tabs, and Content.
In Maximo, when inventory items or costs are issued/returned to storerooms and transferred between storerooms, an accounting document is created and interfaced to AFIS. These documents are processed and approved automatically.
