How do you import projects through IBM TRIRIGA integration?


Does anyone have experience in project integration (data transfer) from an external existing project through any IBM TRIRIGA integration module? Our templates and mapping have been identified, but the question is about reproducing the overall standard when a project is created. This seems hard. In order to have this project consistent in TRIRIGA, we think that we need to be consistent with the following:

  • Project and direct associations with business objects in perimeter
  • Associated purchase orders
  • Budget and their associated cost codes
  • Financial data and their associated computation

Any help and experience would be great, even if the answer is it’s too hard.

Without detailed knowledge on the user’s part, such as a fundamental knowledge of all of the application functionality, it would really be best to engage IBM Services to implement this integration. It’s not impossible, but it really would need a lot of care.

Cohesive Solutions to present at TRIMAX 2017 on importance of KPIs


Anthony Honaker, VP of product strategy and development at Cohesive Solutions, is slated to speak at this year’s TRIMAX 2017 conference on November 30th. Hosted by IBM, TRIMAX is an annual TRIRIGA and Maximo Enterprise Asset Management user group conference. Throughout the conference, clients, business partners, and IBM representatives share their knowledge, use cases, and innovative thoughts around the products and associated business processes.

“What makes a great learning experience for our attendees is having solid content presented by leaders like Cohesive who have industry experience and first-hand knowledge of the challenges Maximo users face today,” said Tina Scott, IBM Business Development Manager and TRIMAX leader.

Honaker’s presentation – “Beyond Dashboards: Using Measures and KPIs to improve your processes and achieve business results” – walks through the health and management of the business processes that support the organization’s overall strategy. This presentation will discuss how organizations can focus on improving their operations, as well as the use of their business systems, and achieve real business results by looking beyond dashboards, and using KPIs to improve the business processes and achieve results.

How do you populate the request class drop-down in work task?


I’m having issues with request classes on work tasks. We created a project (including work location). But now, when we create a task from the project, very few of the values (including work location) are mapped onto the null work task. The drop-down that comes from the request class depends solely on this work location.

Also, the work location of the task gets its value from the project (as mapped). But now, when we try to get the drop-down for the request class based on work location, random values are shown. When I reselect the same work location, and then go back to the request class, I see the correct values. Any thoughts on this behavior? How do you get the request class list for the very first time without reselecting the work location in a work task that was created from the project?

Is there a way to retire all attached child records in bulk?


We are working to clean up a rather large list of child records (floors and spaces) that are attached to retired parent records (buildings). Is there an easy way to mass retire child records? Also, is there a workflow that can be run when a building is retired to avoid this issue in the future?
