Thank you for joining us for the December 7 meeting. It was a new format, and was received well.

This meeting's theme was:

"Achieving Operational Business Objectives while Improving the User Experience"

For this month’s agenda we held a leader facilitated presentations and interactive sessions:

Keith Hildreth, IBM: Keith will lead an interactive session on what’s new in Maximo 7.5 and on methods to configure Maximo to make it easier to use.  Bring your own issues\problems and share them during this session.  Kevin will provide his insight and provide a live demonstration on methods to improve Maximo utilization.  Email us your issue\problem and we’ll make sure it gets addressed during this part of the program:

Randy McDaniel, UCLA Facilities Management: Randy will share his experience on how they have improved operations and will also provide examples and tools of how UCLA as simplified and enhanced the user experience.

Praneet Jaspal will lead an interactive session and encourage the SCMUG audience to share their experience.  We invite you to bring examples to share on how you've implemented improvements to your operation, and perhaps simplified Maximo.  Email us your example and we’ll make sure we call on you during this part of the program:
