Established in 1998, Cohesive has over two decades of experience helping organizations navigate the ever-changing and complex digital transformation landscape. The Exton, Pennsylvania-based company has assisted enterprises worldwide in streamlining operations and meeting sustainability requirements safely and efficiently by providing them with IBM products and expert solutions. One of Cohesive’s clients, a part of one of Europe’s largest independent terminal operators, wanted to implement an advanced asset management system.

Since the company operates in one of Europe’s most important ports and serves as a universal terminal for 24-hour shipment services and storage of dry bulk cargoes, it wanted to improve its efficiency, organize asset management, and eliminate paperwork to build a central repository of all asset-related information. To address these challenges, Cohesive implemented IBM Maximo Asset Management 7.6 and a custom mobile application.

Cohesive’s IBM Maximo Asset Management 7.6 platform comprised various models, such as asset management, warranty, asset meters, contracts, inventory, and crafts and competencies. All the data was prepared based on the information within the legacy systems and migrated from Excel files or technical documentation. Cohesive designed an asset repository with classifications and records of asset ownership agreements to monitor asset downtime during maintenance or breakdowns. The company also built an inventory management software to complete work orders and planning processes. Moreover, Cohesive also provided the staff management required for maintenance tasks, including competencies, skills, and shifts.

Moreover, Cohesive added a custom mobile application that supported work orders and failed reporting. Combined with IBM Maximo Asset Management, both solutions reformed the client’s asset operations by allowing asset tracking, management, and maintenance and gaining real-time access to resources and work order information. The company also automated business processes to improve records and access the past performance of asset lifecycles, allowing it to improve work management and reduce the time from failure reporting.
