Case Study:

Honda of the UK Manufacturing

A Step Change in Asset Management Maturity in only 6 months.

Honda of the UK Manufacturing Ltd is a fully integrated car manufacturing plant that currently produces over 150,000 units per year. They are the global production hub for the 10th generation Civic, with a new vehicle rolling off the line every 69 seconds. As Honda’s European flagship factory, Swindon employs over 3,000 associates to build and export the Civic and Civic Type R to over 70 countries worldwide.


Prior to the project, Honda of the UK Manufacturing (HUM) were using a combination of databases, spreadsheets and paper-based systems to manage all equipment maintenance processes. An opportunity was identified by HUM to achieve a step change for HUM’s Plant in Swindon through introduction of an end-to end enterprise asset management system.


Following an analysis of software solutions and potential support partners, HUM worked closely with Platinum IBM Business Partner BPD Zenith to implement IBM Maximo® Enterprise Asset Management (Maximo 7.6.1). The implementation was based on BPD Zenith’s Maximo Accelerator for Manufacturing Template - with a focus on Works and Inventory Management to suit their industry requirements.


  • Using IBM Maximo enabled HUM to implement an integrated system of record for assets within their manufacturing facility, a single source of truth
  • An opportunity to enhance and standardize business and maintenance processes, increasing efficiency and operational optimization
  • Implementation of mobile working across the plant with associated efficiency and data quality improvements
