One of the questions we hear a lot at the beginning of our projects is the one about the sizing of the mobile system landscape. In this blog, we want to discuss which factors are important for the answer.
Most of our customers see the benefit of having checklists in SAP to support their inspection and maintenance process. There are different ways how these checklists can be set up in SAP, all with their pro’s and con’s. But the real challenge starts before you come to that point, when you try to fit all the puzzle pieces together.
It is a general question when it comes to software - should you buy an off-the-shelf solution or do custom build your own?
Both approaches have their pro’s and con’s. We will discuss them here in the context of mobile solutions for SAP Plant Maintenance/Customer Service and will present you a third option, which combines the best of both worlds.
In the last blog post you have learnt how to identify the most commonly used applications in your SAP system and how to prioritize this list of applications by adding additional criteria. This can be a good starting point for your UX improvements roadmap. Today we want to introduce another helpful way to identify SAP Fiori apps which provide the most impact for your business. With the SAP Relevance and Readiness Analysis in the SAP Fiori apps reference library you can identify SAP Fiori apps that best fit your needs.
On a not rooted Android device you cannot view your app's file content. This might be necessary when dealing with files like databases, logs or downloads.
The guide was written for a windows machine, but the steps are the same for macOS as well.
To view the app's private content you need to
- backup the apk from the device
- convert the backup
- extract the convert backup
As you know, SAP Fiori is the latest user interface from SAP that satisfies all modern design principles. SAP systems, such as the SAP S/4HANA or SAP Business Suite are using Fiori UX to provide an personalized, adaptive and role-based user experience. All Fiori apps are HTML5 based and come with a rich user interfaces for modern web business applications and responsiveness across browsers and devices.
When working with mobile apps that support the inspection, maintenance and customer service business processes, users usually have to report a couple of things:
- Condition of equipments - ideally done via checklists
- Measurement readings - best not taken manually but via an software interface or even better directly send to SAP by an IoT integration
- Material consumption - the application should support the identification of the material via barcode or RFID scanner
- Confirmation of working time - for best usability done via a stopwatch mechanism
This blog will discuss the last point and it shows how this can be done on the example of SAM Smart Asset Management.
Since 2002 SAP has released a number of mobile apps for their enterprise asset management modules PM/CS. This blog will give a quick overview
Today we are happy and proud to announce the launch of SAM (Smart Asset Management), a new solution for making the work with SAP PM and CS easier. It is a mobile solution that is built on the currently best technologies on client, middleware and backend.
One way or another, we are mobilizing SAP’s plant maintenance and customer service since 2002. NetWeaver Mobile and MAM (Mobile Asset Management) have been the first generation of solutions. In 2010 we introduced MOMENTUM, a solution developed on top of the Sybase Unwired Platform - we sold it to a large German software vendor in 2011. Since 2012 we mainly implemented the SAP Work Manager, the latest generation of SAP’s mobile field service offering. Now in 2016 we once again launch our own solution - Smart Asset Management or short SAM.
