Augmented reality is a technology expected to have a big impact as a natural and intuitive user interface to industrialapplications. A lot of research has been done in industrial augmented reality but real life applications are still rare. One reason for the slow adoption seems to be that augmented reality applications have been developed without taking sufficiently into account the existing industrial processes in information management. This paper describes aprototype software which uses augmented reality as a user interface to plant lifecycle management applications indifferent lifecycle phases. Several use cases implemented show that augmented reality can be implemented cost efficiently without specific authoring tools if the design information is correctly structured already in the design phase, and if the design, maintenance and real-time information sources are accessed via standard application interfaces.
