The virtual data model for Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) provides you with query views and reuse views for collecting, aggregating and evaluating your plant maintenance data from a variety of business perspectives.

We provide a number of tools for displaying and handling analytical data for plant maintenance. For the following query views of this virtual data model we use the tool SAP BusinessObjects Analysis, Edition for Microsoft Excel, which is a Microsoft Office Add-In that allows multidimensional analysis of OLAP sources:

For a description of these reuse views see Reuse Views for Plant Maintenance.

You can automatically generate details, for example, a list of the measures and attributes, tables and views for each reuse view which is used in this query using the auto documentation function. For more information see the individual query view documentation.

Note Note

The analysis possibilities of the query views of the virtual data model for EAM are similar to those of Plant Maintenance Information System (PMIS). For more information about PMIS, see SAP Help Portal at under Plant Maintenance Information System.
