Maintenance inspection processing using a DHTMLX mobile application prototype screenschots:

This document shows screen shots of an inspection processing prototype system which was developed using DHTMLX Touch mobile development framework in a SAP PM environment using an IIS web server as middleware between the mobile client and SAP back-end. Login: Login using personnel number

Select data for inspection processing

Show Inspection location(s) on the map, for the inspection as a whole and individually for inspection points. Protected substation inspections will not need mapping for inspection points.

Ensure that the work crew is defined (this may change, dependent on assistants available). This is done under Time worked. Note that Pool indicates an unassigned resource. The system will perform middleware validation for duplicate inclusion of pool resources as team members on more than one time segment.

At arrival on site, start the stopwatch. If an inspection is not selected the stopwatch will not start.

Close the Time worked window and proceed with the physical inspection. Click on the magnifying glass next to the inspection to open up inspection points. For each inspection, inspection characteristics will be results recorded and technical feedback given.

Proceed with results recording as follows:

Clicking OK and saving will highlight a line with a green tick mark and skip to the next line. When clicking Not OK the user will have to provide long text to give a reason for a defect:

After saving a defect, the line will be marked with a red cross and defect text will be shown in the right hand column. Quantitative inspection characteristics will be automatically validated based on

the LTL and UTL inspection limits.

When all inspection points have been processed, a condition rating has to be supplied for the inspection point as follows:

Prior to completing the inspection and stopping the stopwatch, a progress report or validation should be performed to check if mandatory inspection characteristics were left unfilled. A report or validation should not stop the inspector from completing the inspection because master data inaccuracies may result in mandatory inspection characteristics not being filled. It is however crucial that these inspection characteristics and master data deficiencies are highlighted in the middleware server. It should also be possible for an inspector to add inspection points which may be found in the field, labelled or not, and capture results against these inspection points.

After an inspector is satisfied that an inspection is complete, the inspection is completed by stopping the stopwatch and saving the time worked on the inspection as follows:

After all inspections have been closed, inspection data can be loaded to middleware. Middleware to be used for more than shuttling data form and to SAP core tables, including the following: Keep inspections in a logical packet posting to SAP updates individual inspection lots but SAP does not store a logical definition of the inspection (i.e. group of inspection points/lots and time confirmed for these inspection points as a group). Not all inspection points captured on the mobile device will have inspection lots in SAP. In some cases the master may have been missing which means the inspection lot would not have been available prior to inspection. These inspection points and associated result will not be posted to SAP but will be available in middleware to ensure that master data fixes are applied. Conversely, inspection lot not captured because of erroneous master data will remain as incomplete in SAP. By looking at SAP only, it will not be clear if an inspection, with all its inspection lots were skipped or if individual lot were left as incomplete because of master data errors. Middleware reporting will have to highlight incompletes because of master data errors.
