You are here: Introducing the Meridian Asset Management Module

The BlueCielo Meridian Asset Management Module provides a link between asset information stored in a maintenance management system and document information stored in a Meridian Enterprise vault. Users of either system can view and link to information in the other system, but the assets (called objects in Meridian) remain under the ownership of the maintenance management system and the documents remain under the ownership of Meridian. Maintenance management system users cannot create new documents in a vault without the approval of Meridian Enterpriseusers (engineering). Meridian Enterpriseusers cannot create new assets in the maintenance management system without the approval of maintenance management system users. The recommended overall process of linking documents to assets is as follows:

  1. Maintenance management system users create and maintain assets
  2. The Asset Management Module synchronizes asset proxies (essentially, document objects without content) in the Meridian Enterprise vault with new or updated asset data from the maintenance management system.
  3. Meridian Enterprise users link vault documents to the asset proxies. Linking assets to other assets is also possible.
  4. Maintenance management system users can then view documents that are related to the assets that they maintain. The documents are shown in Meridian Explorer in a web browser. The users can optionally initiate electronic change requests for the related documents.

The Asset Management Module can integrate with most maintenance management systems, including but not limited to:
