Who is ALIS ?

ALIS is a cloud-based CMMS and stands for Airside Location-based Inspection & Service. It utilizes a combination of unique software and advanced hardware to provide the ultimate solution in asset tracking and maintenance systems. ALIS was specifically developed to aid in the maintenance and asset tracking of airfield ground equipment. Be it runway, taxiway, approach or apron equipment, elevated or inset and even Gate maintenance.

It's core function is bringing visibilitywork order management  and reporting for : 

  • Assets preventive maintenance status & actions

  • Assets corrective maintenance actions

  • Assets operational status and follow-up

  • Assets reported observations and follow-up


In this article, we would like to point you in the right direction on how to setup and configure your ALIS instance for Airside maintenance management.
You should have received or waiting for your instance details and credentials in order to login and find an empty airport. It is now up to you to populate and configure the different assets we want to track in the system. 

Example of Mapspace

You can find an overview of the configuration support pages here and learn about the terminology ! ALIS Configuration & Setup

Step-by-step guide

  1. Gather your asset Data for creating the digital twin

    1. The following information is required in order to create the assets in the system:

      1. The asset "name"

      2. The asset "type"

      3. The main- and subarea

      4. Its location in the world (latitude/longitude or UTM) 

    2. That information can be retrieved from different sources

      1. Through an export of an AutoCAD sheet (Ask us if you need help with that!) 

      2. Through an existing list of your installed base

      3. Through a survey ( last resort option) 

  2. Create your maintenance tasks and Asset types in ALIS  based on your gathered data and desired maintenance regime.

    1. Follow our maintenance task and asset type configuration here: ALIS - Maintenance tasks configuration

    2. Have a look at the instruction video - ALIS a new instance  to get some help there if needed ( you will start off with an empty asset list in this case)
