Specify your working environment in offline app
When you open the mobile application the first time, you can now specify your company URL and environment.
Previously the application was available only for limited environments, but with this new feature you are now able to switch between UAT and production environments.
So, carry on testing new features in UAT and do not worry about breaking vital functionality!
Access all your inspections offline
All field service technicians, who use the Offline Mobile Inspections App, can now also get the overview of all the work they are assigned to.
This overview now allows you to see and open all inspections you are assigned to and directly start working on them - also offline!
This will enable technicians to better prioritize their work, and work independently of a stable internet connection. No more worrying about loosing valuable data!
Follow the status of your inspections offline
This feature allows the technicians to submit their work by updating the status of the inspection from the Offline Mobile Inspections app.
In this way the back-office team will always know if an inspection has been forgotten, or when an inspection has actually been finished, so its ready for review. Additionally the technicians can easily get an overview of what inspections he or she has finished.
Sign your inspections offline
The user is now able to give a signature when finishing the inspection in the Offline Mobile Inspections app. The signatures are then showed on the customer PDF reports.
In this way the technician can authenticate him or herself with his signature and take the personal responsibility of the completed inspection.
Automatic synchronization with offline app
Now the Offline Mobile Inspections app synchronizes with Asset Integrity Hub automatically every 5 minutes.
This ensures that the web application and the app are always synchronized. Now the technician can forget about mandatory manual synchronization and focus on actual work. Additionally, the back-office are now sure that whatever information he or she is looking at is up-to-date.
Improved authentication system
Authentication is the act of proving an assertion, such as the identity of a system or user. In contrast with identification, the act of indicating a person or thing's identity, authentication is the process of verifying that identity.
Before, Asset Integrity Hub's users were being authenticated by Azure Active Directories (AAD) only, creating a tight coupling between AIH and AAD.
The new authentication system, which is now being governed by AIH, alongside with keeping existing features of the previous authentication system, offers the following advantages:
Authorization, user roles and permissions management
System administrators now have the ability to set up and configure applier teams, roles and permissions due to the new resource-based authorization model.
Prior to this release, users and roles were defined through Active directory groups.
To reduce the dependency on internal operations, we've introduced a new separate database for users and roles. This means that the product owner him/herself can add/remove users and assign roles directly from the system, without the intervention of the IT-department.
Now you can also get an additional dimension, when defining your permissions-schema: Ownership. Before you could only assign access to a group of objects; e.g. user can read Plants or Main Systems, but you could not differentiate which plants or main systems the user had access to. The benefit of assigning permissions is that it is now possible to choose between whether the user has access to all objects or only owned objects.
I want all of my Plants to be readable for all users throughout my organization.
But I only want the owner of the plant to be able to update and delete the data for the plants.
Furthermore, previously, users could not be grouped into teams and it was not possible to assign ownership of an object to a team.
This meant that objects could not be shared among colleagues which made it hard to collaborate.
With the introduction of teams, it is now possible to configure teams an assign ownership of objects to them. This will affect the permission, but this is also the first step towards collaborative dashboards.
Your organization divides work (e.g. inspections) among teams according to the location of the work.
You created Team Sweden, Team Denmark, and Team Germany.
You can now assign inspections to the respective teams. This will enable your users to filter work, so that they only get relevant information displayed in the system.
New life to Plants page!
We have updated the plant page, so it is now better structured and easily readable.
With the new plant page the user can now see the plant location in an interactive map and view all the main systems that belong to it!
From here the user can systematically set up and manage the plant information and the RDS-PP Conjoint information.
New life to Main systems page!
The main system page lets users manage the information about a particular main system. This includes general information about the main system, its warranty, and location.
The new view is better structured and readable and contains all the necessary information in a neat, easy-to-use design. The new interactive map shows the location of the main system and updates automatically when the coordinates change.
Additionally the system now lets you save your data without knowing all the information yet!
New life to Organizations page!
We have updated the organizations page as well, so now you can manage information about your partners and customers, including general, contact and address information.
The new design gives you a more readable and better structured view of your information and simply fun to work with!
Search for failure taxonomies
Now users can search through existing taxonomies using Name, Code, and ZEUS properties of dimensions.
These tweaks to the page include highlighting the positive search results in the UI, automatically expanding dimensions when a lower level is added to them, auto-saving the taxonomy names when users exit the editing mode.
The new functionality provides users with more control over the failure taxonomies and dimensions, giving them a quick and convenient way of setting up, configuring, and finding the failure taxonomies and dimensions for later use.
Applier languages for designations
Now you can add, edit and delete applier languages for your designation structure for every Main system you have.
As Main systems can have components from different manufacturers, which, in turn, may have their own design structure and the language to refer to it.
The main benefit of this new feature is the ability to structure and configure these components in one place. Applier languages also allows you to use multiple languages for the designation to match different business and department practices.
In this way you can configure at designation "language" that follows your old business practices and still follow GSP stipulated naming conventions in your data model.
