Peacock Engineering is planning to take systems testing to a new dramatic level. Within 10 weeks the team is testing IBM’s Maximo and its own Fingertip system to the limits when it uses the two systems to support the team as they cross the Himalayas on motorbikes designed in the 1940s. Maintaining equipment at an altitude of over 5,000 metres is always going to be tough, but when that equipment is moving along the highest road in the world then it takes determination and great software to keep the assets rolling. The team will be using Maximo, located in Peacock’s UK hosting centre, to plan and record maintenance and bike failures, and Fingertip to record reliability and repair activity. Fingertip’s geo-location tools will track the position of the riders, and the location and altitude of all breakdowns and repairs. Photographs of events and incidents will be transmitted back to base using Fingertips new HSE reporting tools.
