Abstract

The rapid development of hardware and software has made it possible to introduce new and more sophisticated maintenance policy making in case of mobile production machinery or machinery located in isolated places. In such cases, the backbone of the maintenance system is the mobile user interface to CMMS and ERP systems used by the company providing maintenance services. Nonetheless, the adoption of such kind of mobile devices (e.g. PDA) is related with the activities that are carried out: the success or the failure of these tools is related to the processes that are established in the company. It is, in fact, worth noticing that, generally speaking, the adoption of a new ICT solution should go along with a proper activity of processes re-engineering. Moreover, also a further level of details describing the features implemented in the devices is important to understand which are the capabilities of such kind of mobile tools. The paper defines a guideline along the development of a PDA adoption test case. Some schemas referring to the PDA enabled processes are presented together with an ontology of the information that PDA and CMMS server should exchange.
