Abstract : The Madigan Army Medical Center (MAMC), Fort Lewis, WA, has been designated by the Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) as a Medical Facilities Management Center of Technical Expertise. This Center is currently responsible for investigating and proposing an Army-wide Hospital Maintenance Management System (HMMS) for Service Medical Centers and Hospitals. MAMC previously developed a local HMMS based on the (commercially available) MAXIMO Maintenance Management Program. This experience has contributed to the initiation of a configuration proposal for a General Service HMMS. This initial stage of research reviewed the MAMC/ MAXIMO data base currently in use at Madigan Army Medical Center and verified its potential effectiveness for general use at Army hospitals. This study concludes that, with limited adjustments, the MAMC/MAXIMO data base may be 'upgraded' to an optimal level for general Army hospital use. This study also found that a re-engineering of the Equipment Assembly Structure (EAS) is a key element for achieving an effective MAXIMO Program process, efficient user interfaces, and refined report/printout generation. With this system, HMMS users may conform to Command EAS Network standards, while adapting Operations EAS Network guidance to their local needs.
