8.1 Manage Equipment Mobile Applications Overview

Equipment Master information is the primary data that is associated with each piece of equipment in the device. The Manage Equipment mobile applications for tablet and smartphone enable you to search for equipment details as a subset of the equipment master information and to add notes. The Manage Equipment application enables you to see the key equipment information. Examples are:

  • Equipment details

  • Description

  • Location information

  • Acquired and installation dates

  • Status

In the mobile applications for equipment, you can view detailed information, and also update the data in the Equipment Status and Location fields. The device updates the equipment status in the Asset Master File (F1201) and Status History File (F1307) tables, and the location in the F1201 and Location Tracking (F1204) tables.

This table lists the applications that are available to review and update equipment details:

8.1.1 Differences and Limitations: Equipment Search Results

Mobile applications are intended to be a simplified version of the applications that are available in the base software. In most cases, these applications provide a subset of the functionality available in the base software.

If the processing options for the mobile applications are not set to determine which version to use for the Work With Equipment Master program (P1701), then the Equipment mobile applications for tablet and smartphone use the ZJDE0002 version of the Work With Equipment Master program.

8.2 Using the Manage Equipment Mobile Tablet Application

As part of the maintenance technician's role, you need to view and update equipment details. The Manage Equipment tablet application enables you to search the equipment, view details, and update the status and location of equipment. In addition, the Manage Equipment tablet application also enables you to:

  • View Preventive Maintenance (PM) backlog details.

  • View repair history through equipment work orders.

  • View current meter readings and enter either new readings or net increases for a single piece of equipment. You use meter readings to monitor equipment use and to initiate maintenance tasks.

  • View or add notes pertaining to a piece of equipment.

Before you can use the application, you must download and install the application from the application store on your tablet device.

(Release 9.2 Update) You can use one of the following options to scan barcodes of equipment number:

  • Disable the Bluetooth option in the settings on your device if you want to use the native device camera to scan the barcodes of equipment number.

  • Enable the Bluetooth option if you want to use a Bluetooth-enabled scanning device to scan the barcodes of equipment number.

To scan barcodes using the Bluetooth scanning device, you must configure the scanning device to the mobile device.
