- Monitor and control operation of all assets “from the inside”, including functioning of equipment and key systems
- Receive consolidated data from remote divisions, breaking these down by asset, spare part or material, as well as analyze and improve business performance.
- Enterprise asset management. Maintaining a registry of enterprise assets. Maintaining an inventory of technical documents, history, hierarchy, and status data
- Management and planning of preventive actions and repairs
- Management of supply of materials, spare parts, and instruments
- Management of warehouse stocks
- Management of service and repair personnel
- Management of supplier relations
- Logging and storing of information on expenses in different breakdowns
- Generation of standard and ad hoc reports

An additional feature is the IBA–developed geoMarker designed for visualization of business objects. Assets, tasks, requests, and other objects can be shown on Google Maps and navigation between a map and an object can provide easy access to the needed data.
Enhancement to IBM Maximo
The Item Assembly Structure (IAS) Navigator is an IBA solution based on the native IBM Maximo platform. Successfully validated by IBM, the IBA solution meets the IBM integration criteria for Cloud and Smarter Infrastructure solutions.
IAS Navigator is designed for navigation and accelerated search of items and their descriptions based on the graphical presentation of the assembly structure.
IAS Navigator provides a mechanism to match a graphic drawing of a device and its elements with information about them in the database.
Using IAS Navigator, it is possible to add a picture of an assembly or device, connect it to the inventory database, and navigate easily between different parts of the device structure.
IAS Navigator is an enhancement of the standard IBM Maximo applications that offer a table with a list of integrated items. If a device consists of numerous elements, the navigation through its units causes a lot of time and effort. Therefore, we offer you a solution that makes your work easier and more efficient.
- Shows decomposition of complex structures
- Highlights or marks items in complex structures
- Provides basic information about items by clicking relevant images on the assembly drawing.
- Accelerated item search leveraged by Item Assembly Structure visualization
- Reduced Work Order handling time by fast transfer of the required items to Work Order.
- Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.6 or above
- IBM Tivoli Process Automation Engine 188.8.131.52 or above
- IBM Maximo Asset Management Package 184.108.40.206 or above.
- As the cursor points to an area, the area is highlighted. Clicking an Item in the assembly structure displays the details of the chosen Item.
- As the cursor moves from one area to another, the focus moves from the initial area to a new area and the new area is highlighted.
