August 22, 2019 – Kennesaw, GA Cohesive Solutions is proud to be the Best New Implementation award recipient of ReliabilityWeb's 2019 award program. This award was presented at the MaximoWorld conference in Orlando, FL earlier this month. The MaximoWorld Awards recognize extraordinary achievements and team accomplishments in the Maximo community for practitioners and vendors.

The winning solution was delivered by Cohesive Solutions with their client, WBI Energy. WBI Energy is part of the MDU Resources Group family of companies. This project included modernization of business processes, work practices, and field enablement. With initial project workshops starting February 2017 and production deployment January 2018, Cohesive guided WBI Energy from 'paper to iPad in a year.'

This implementation touched every aspect of Asset Management and Work Management while providing advanced technical solutions for a challenging environment that involved:

  • Development of Master Data Standards
  • Complete Equipment hierarchy and data build (for ~3,800 miles of pipeline, hundreds of compressor stations, and storage/gathering fields)
  • Work Management processes which enable auto-assignment and self-scheduling
  • Standardized Work packages and linear driven routes
  • Geo-spatial (GIS) Integration
  • Automated Compliance Work Order Date Calculations (DOT/PHMSA 49CFR192)
  • The implementation of IBM Maximo and Maximo Anywhere mobile solution

“This effort has enabled WBI Energy to significantly shorten the turnaround between what happens in the field and what is known in the office.  This allows the business to move quickly and make better-informed decisions as it grows while also reducing risk”, said Stephen Miller, Practice Leader of Energy and Utilities at Cohesive Solutions. Stephen accepted the award alongside Mark Haag, Project Manager Maximo and Process Improvement at WBI Energy.
