With its continuously development of MasterConcept on Microsoft technology, Ides AB strengthens its development to cover also Microsoft cloud services and Azure platform development.

MasterConcept – closer integration to Microsoft platforms

Ides product strategy is to support different business areas such as Manufacturing, BIM, Facility Management, Plant Design and Project Management. MasterConcept therefor have support for advanced 3D design and Office documentation.

Office integrations

MasterConcept has an integration for Microsoft Office applications. With this MasterConcept customers have a more seamless integration and connect each user closer to MasterConcept Document Management.

App development

During 2017 Ides released the App, AssetMaster, as part of the functionality in MasterConcept for Asset Management. AssetMaster App connects office with operations through hand held devices in online or offline mode. With AssetMaster the service department have access to work orders, fault reports and to MasterConcept Document Management.
AssetMaster support Android, iOS and Windows.

Azure IoT Suite

MasterConcept Asset Management is developed to integrate the OPC UA Industrial Interoperability Standard using Azure Industrial IoT Cloud Platform. This is used to collect operational data for preventive and predicted maintenance.

Borås Energi och Miljö AB has selected Ides MasterConcept as their future IT-platform for all types of plant information. With structured plant information, Borås Energi och Miljö can easily verify, standardize, maintain, analyze and implement plant changes.

MasterConcept – a strategic platform in the IT environment

Borås Energi och Miljö runs a big investment project (EMC – Energy and Environment Center), where a new central heating power plant and sewage treatment plant is being built at the same location to achieve the greatest possible synergies. The project will deliver large amounts of technical plant information where it is important that Borås Energi och Miljö can effectively retrieve and manage the information.

– A large amount of plant information from suppliers will be in a form of documents, but Borås Energi och Miljö also want MasterConcept to take care of pure plant information that must be stored in a structured way. One example is the EMC investment project, where deliveries of BIM information easily can be managed and maintained, says Fredrik Andersson, IT Architect at Borås Energi och Miljö.

Complex BIM models and plant information

The technical plant information is key information for most departments in Borås Energi och Miljö. The concept of Plant Information refers to both traditional plant documentation including 3D models (BIM) but also equipment, component data and economically related information.

– MasterConcept offers more than just managing CAD drawings and documents. Today, there are different roles and people who should be able to analyze what equipment there is and where it is located in the plant. With MasterConcept integration with 3D BIM that connects information inside complex 3D models, Borås Energi och Miljö will have full support for structuring the information in MasterConcept in the future, says Lars Geidne CEO Ides AB.

Sigma IT Consulting – partner in the delivery of MasterConcept

Sigma IT Consulting is an Ides Partner and Reseller and has long experience of implementing systems and integrations. Sigma will jointly with Ides AB deliver services and integrations.
