Customize Native Mobile Applications Delivered by SAP

Use the mobile development kit to quickly and easily customize SAP Asset Manager


Daunting maintenance challenges can strain both infrastructure and workforce. The people who service and operate mission-critical assets are often geographically distributed, in transit, and work in hazardous environments. Whether at the mine face, in the plant, or atop a high-voltage line in a rural area, access is essential, safety is paramount, and productivity is critical. Enterprises such as oil or mining companies must dig deeper and go farther for natural resources. In doing so, they work with very limited labor pools; rely on increasingly heavy and complex equipment; and work in environmentally, politically, and socially complex areas. 

SAP Asset Manager is a robust mobile application that enables companies to manage work orders and notifications as well as perform condition monitoring, material consumption, time management, and failure analysis in the field. SAP Asset Manager leverages the digital core with SAP S/4HANA and the SAP Cloud Platform as an IoT platform. SAP Asset Manager can easily be customized using the mobile development kit editor, which is a standard plug-in to SAP Web IDE. With the mobile development kit, businesses can add screens, branding, styling, actions, rules, and fields to meet their specific business needs.

The solution diagram above illustrates a combined architectural pattern of the runtime and design-time environments for implementing SAP Asset Manager.
