Asset Management module (CMMS) for Microsoft Dynamics AX

For customers running the Microsoft Dynamics AX system, the INLOGICA team have prepared an Asset Management (CMMS) module dedicated for handling asset maintenance operations in the organisation. The solution can support the work of such company departments as maintenance and measurements.

The main elements of the module are:

  • Management of plant and equipment
  • Process management in the form of work orders and jobs
  • Staff management
  • Parameter management and measurement
  • Object rental
  • Permits
  • Work policies
  • Management of plant and equipment

The Asset Management module (CMMS) for Microsoft Dynamics AX can be used to create an organisation’s machine park structure (e.g. against a BOM). Such a hierarchy enables tailored management of plant and equipment by breaking down their maintenance into individual sub-assemblies and components. The process of creating fixed asset records in the system uses predefined templates, so that it is not necessary to re-enter all information when adding new records.

The Asset Management module also facilitates the processes of equipment and tool management. Specialist equipment can have time-limited certifications permitting their operation, which are also created using templates and the BOM structure.

Process management in the form of work orders and jobs.

The plant and equipment management process for the purposes of maintenance or measurement services consists in creating work orders and work order jobs. The work orders and related jobs can be set up using templates. Adding new work orders using a template eliminates the need to re-enter all information from scratch. Work orders have their life-cycles and planning phases, which ensures proper supervision over how they are completed.

Management of maintenance staff.

In the Asset Management module (CMMS) for Microsoft Dynamics AX, employees of the organisation are allocated to work orders. This solution also offers integration to the existing Human Resources module.

Parameter management and measurement.

It is possible to define the parameters of technical equipment for the purposes of the measurements division. By monitoring parameter values, one can follow the validity of equipment certifications and decide whether individual pieces of equipment can be used for work. The module also saves the history of measurements.

Object rental

The Asset Management module (CMMS) can be used to allocate technical tools to a user for a certain period of time. Owing to that feature, it is possible to manage the flow of measurement equipment and tools, and technical materials, at the Microsoft Dynamics AX system level.

Work permits.

This solution makes it possible to track employee permits for performing certain jobs within the maintenance department. It also covers licences held by individual staff members to operate certain plant and equipment, and to use certain tools.

Work policies.

Users can set up the reactions of the Microsoft Dynamics AX system to certain events in the Asset Management module (CMMS). It ensures control of the cause and effect chain, e.g. in case of a breakdown.

The Asset Management module (CMMS) for Microsoft Dynamics AX is a professional tool dedicated for organisations with an extensive fixed asset structure. It helps make cost savings by streamlining business processes and automating the management of resources available in the organisation.
