Transportation Fuel Management for Maximo

Fuel Management in IBM MaximoOntracks has developed and deployed a Fuel Management solution for a leading Gas Distribution company. The solution involves integrating fuel transactions entered at the pump into Maximo to generate Preventive Maintenance records, update vehicle usage and improve operational and management reports.

The vehicle operator fuels the vehicle at any Voyager compatible fueling station and enters their Odometer reading at the time of fueling. Each night, the system updates Maximo with the vehicles that were fueled and the associated data.

  • Example data points

      • Date/Time of Fueling
      • Volume of Fuel
      • Location of Fueling Station
      • Type of Fuel
      • Vehicle Odometer Reading (ex. Miles/KM’s)
  • Based on this data, Maximo updates the associated meters on the vehicles. This further enhances Maximo by:

    Allowing PM records to be based on usage rather than the traditional time-based approach.

    Supporting complex analytical reporting. Reports can now include fuel consumption, miles driven by a vehicle, underutilized vehicles, and vehicles with excessive fuel consumption.

    Reducing manual data entry to update meters and consumption details.
