This article will help you in the different configuration and setup options for ALIS .

Asset Data

Here we look at the different terms and what they mean in ALIS ;

Assets

Every asset that is in your ALIS database instance is here.  

You can modify the properties of the assets by means of our ALIS - Asset Management import/export function

Asset Types

We have many assets that have similar properties (as all of the Touchdown zones lights) We can group these lights together so they will have shared properties. If we then add a maintenance task to this type , all of the assets that have that belong to that asset type will receive that maintenance task as a preventive task.

Defining Preventive maintenance tasks to Asset types and how that influence the colors on the map is further explained here: How-to change the preventive maintenance cycle of an asset(-type) in ALIS

Maintenance Tasks

Here we define the different maintenance tasks that can be registered in the system; They can be put in categories and we need to define if they are Validation tasks or Torque tasks . (warning)  This is important since it will define whether you need to supply a valid torque value to have the tasks registered as completed.

Validation tasks can also include a "checklist" which will inform the technician the different aspects of that task and can use items to directly create an observation from the ALIS Teams if something needs to be brought to the attention of the maint manager or colleagues.

You can find more information about it here: ALIS - Maintenance tasks configuration

Image LibraryTo visualize the type of asset we ware working with , we can upload images into the system that can then be used per Asset type -  All Assets from that Type will then show that image.
Torque SettingsFor Customers who have a Torque wrench with Angle of rotation measurement , you can adapt the Angles here from which the categories will be created  concerning the Initial torque condition of the assets's fixation.
Photometric

Under the Photometric section, we have Settings.

These settings allow you to modify your default Authority ( ie: ICAO , FAA,..) in order to get an easy view on the compliance of illumination o the assets. 

you can also modify

  • Your own maintenance threshold
  • Default matching behaviour for the import
  • Default entity Names when using the mapping table for import match making
  • Default maintenance task to be performed when registering photometric maintenance

More information about photometrics can be found here : ALIS - Photometrics

Advisories

The Advisory-Panel contains recommendations and warnings on a higher level than on a per asset level. 
The thresholds and whether an advisory is activated or not can be modified in this settings section

More information about Advisories can be found here: ALIS - Advisories

Language and Date setting


You know that problem of USA writes their dates in MM/DD/YYYY and then the Brits who do it as DD/MM/YYYY ?  Yes, we have that issue too but we have you covered now.

Just as where you can change the ALIS webapp language to German -  French - English ... now you can choose between US English and UK English -  this will set the date notation in the format that you are used to!

Do you feel you are missing a language setting ?  Create us a ticket in the servicedesk and we'll see what we can do for you!

(lightbulb) Do you know you can also change the language of the ALIS iOS Apps?
