Asset Navigation

OpenText Cloud Certified

The AIM Suite delivers Asset Navigation across asset intensive industries around the globe

This means the creation, management, overhaul and deployment of key assets can be improved and enhanced with the deployment of The AIM Suite. Industries, such as Oil & Gas, can leverage this technology in order to unlock their engineering content within native CAD drawings and engineering documents.

 

Asset Navigation comprises of 3 modules

Rapid navigation to drawings/ information with HotSpots

 

Automatic ‘Highlight’ of Tags

in drawings/documents

Direct access to external systems

Intuitive “Asset Centric Navigation” with the click of a screen
 

Integrating tightly with the market leading OpenText ECM platforms of Content Suite and Documentum

Asset Navigation also supports the engineering specific solutions of xECM for Engineering for Content Suite and Asset Operations for Documentum. It also works seamlessly with the xECM for SAP framework – giving the ability to leverage related information held in e.g. SAP, directly from the drawing itself via the business workspace. 


The AIM Suite not only unlocks valuable asset information within engineering drawings and documents, it also bridges the gap between structured and unstructured data and info, and systems. This means that asset related information can be accessed directly from the tag itself – whether it lies in the same ECM or an allied, yet separate system, such as ERP, Asset Management etc.

Captures assets within DWGs
and PDFs

A large image of a desktop showing tag information being captured and extracted using AssetXtractor. It's indicating, through a vertical purple line, that AssetXtractor is scanning the CAD image for tags and asset data. This is also indacted by a browser window hovering in front of the screen which shows the tags have been listed and categorised.
AssetXtractor

Capture assets

Automatically extract, correct, validate and activate tags from within drawings and documents (including native CAD and PDF).

As part of the AIM Suite, tags become dynamic links (HotSpots) between drawings, documents and systems, enabling multi system access directly from an asset (Asset Navigation).

 

AssetXtractor

A large image of a tablet showing tag information being captured and extracted from a CAD drawing using AssetXtractor. It's indicating, through a vertical purple line, that AssetXtractor is scanning the CAD image for tags. As the tags have been picked up, a green tick appears next to them. If they are incorrect, a red cross appears next to them.

A graphic showing a vector of a CAD drawing example ont he left with HotSpots highlighted on four of the tags. On the right is a list of those tags with a tick next to the names to represent that the information on th drawing has been automatically validated with AssetXtractor. On the far right of the image are the words; Extract, Validate, Correct. At the bottom of the image is a caption which reads: AssetXtractor automatically Extracts, Validates and Corrects asset tags from your drawing and documents.

Use your data, your way

Multiple output options.

Save time and money, whilst maintaining state-of-the-art master data governance. AssetXtractor provides your output data in Excel format, database format or in an intuitive web interface.

Data from AssetXtractor can inform, update and use your master list to enhance alternative master data sources like ERP or Plant Maintenance systems.

 

AssetXtractor

Automatically compile master list

Master Lists can be used to pre-approve assets, shaving hours off the QA process and delivering exceptionally high quality results.

AssetXtractor can add to and adjust existing master lists right at the source, simplifying your data governance processes and reducing the margin for error.

CaptureFlow

Index and upload

CaptureFlow streamlines your indexing and upload process in to OpenText Content Server™ and OpenText Documentum, providing an intuitive and sometimes automatic metadata capture process. It manages your engineering document workflow, with AutoCAD, PDF and Microsoft Office compatibility.

CaptureFlow

Automatically index based on CAD Title Blocks

CaptureFlow makes indexing fast, easy and (partly) automatic. 

Using CAD title blocks and folder paths to automatically populate metadata, configurable dropdown menus and information from within SAP, CaptureFlow quickly enriches your Enterprise Content Management experience with greater search capability.

 

CaptureFlow

Integrate SAP information into your indexing process

Link SAP to CaptureFlow to index based on information from your master data source. 

Create a link from the file to SAP with out HotSpots extension, passing in the information indexed from SAP for an intelligent, efficient and frustration-free end user experience, saving time, money and effort.
