Types of Maintenance in Dynaway EAM 

There are different maintenance processes which Dynaway EAM can facilitate:

  • Corrective Maintenance

Corrective maintenance is carried out after failure detection and is aimed at restoring an asset to a condition in which it can perform its intended function.

Work order can be directly created from service requests, created via the Service Portal on our Mobile Client.

  • Reactive Maintenance

Via Dynaway EAM you can set up values of different asset properties which can be tracked and based on their values, reactive work-orders can be automatically created. 

  • Preventive Maintenance

Preventive maintenance is proactive maintenance that is performed regularly at predetermined intervals in order to prevent asset failure. This can be achieved by creating maintenance sequences on Dynaway EAM.

With Dynaway EAM is possible to predict future maintenance tasks, based on data provided from the assets. Instead of doing preventive maintenance based on time, it can be predicted based on usage.

Based on asset properties and maintenance planning, work order can be created automatically or get an overview of larger period and plan before creating the work orders.

Objects / Equipment in Dynaway EAM 

In Dynaway EAM, an object is a machine or a piece of equipment that requires continuous maintenance and service. Objects can be created in a hierarchical structure. Maintenance jobs can be planned at all levels in the object structure.

So that a work order to be created, there should be stated an object which requires certain maintenance. Therefore, the central parts of Dynaway Asset Management are objects and work orders.

Mobile EAM: Work-order Execution

On the Mobile Client, a worker can see which tasks have been scheduled for the day or check the task overview for the week or the month.

By clicking on the work order, the worker can see the description of the task which can be added manually or a checklist attached to the task which needs to be executed.

The worker can get a full overview about the object maintenance history before executing a task and check requests, created for this object, which the worker can resolve.

Attachments can be added by the worker for documenting a work. For example, a picture can be added to show the result or the progress of a task. Guidelines can also be added to a task, if needed.

After the execution the worker can register the hours spent on the task and the used spare part consumption.

Offline Inventory

Download Inventory for Offline Use


When the Mobile Client is online, you can request item information, allowing you to see inventory status and create item registrations when the Mobile Client is offline. You can use offline item information to create item forecasts and item registrations. This is useful if you work on maintenance jobs in remote areas with limited or no internet coverage. The offline inventory can be used in a remote warehouse or as a stock list in your service van.

  1. When the Mobile Client is online, select Offline inventory in the main menu.
  2. On the Offline inventory screen, select a Site as a minimum. If required, select Warehouse and Location.
  3. Select the Get inventory button to download the inventory from the selected inventory location.
  4. Now, you can create item consumption registrations from the offline inventory. When the Mobile Client is online again, item consumption registrations are automatically transferred to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations.

The Service Portal

The Service portal module on the Mobile Client allows you to quickly and easily create requests on objects, for example, when a worker detects an error, a faulty setup, or a need for inspection on a machine /work center.

This module is intended for shop floor workers who operate machines or other types of equipment, which regularly require maintenance or service.

The Service portal ensures that a worker can quickly report faults and errors in your production facility. A maintenance manager or maintenance clerk decides what needs to be done to follow up on the request.

  • Worker's Name
  • Location
  • Request Type

  • Auto-split work order lines
  • Plan on exact time
  • Create planning notes for workers
