SAP Asset Intelligence Network (SAP AIN)
as collaboration platform

The SAP Asset Intelligence Network (SAP AIN) is a secure, SAP HANA Cloud-based collaboration platform for industrial plants and machines. It enables information exchange of plant and component data between machine manufacturers, machine operators and service employees.

This can be different types of data in a simple structure right up to 3D and animated documents:

  • Operating manuals
  • Maintenance guides
  • Specifications
  • Spare parts lists
  • Sensor data
  • Machine load and status

Standardized communication with SAP Asset Intelligence Network (SAP AIN)

This information is extremely useful for manufacturers and service providers to help them determine the optimal times for inspection and maintenance. Up to now, manufacturers had to wait for warranty claims or base their conclusions on optimization and adjustments on whatever information was provided by the customer. On the operator side, the required information on machines and plant currently used had to be collated from diverse resources and this was often complex and time consuming. The SAP Asset Intelligence Network (SAP AIN) facilitates standardized communication.

Using SAP AIN, manufacturers can efficiently make data available to a wide range of users and can obtain direct feedback on the operation of machines and plants. Operators have an insight into optimal and error-free information, which supports the proper handling of machines and plants and correct maintenance measures.

SAP AIN (Asset Intelligence Network) functionality

SAP AIN has the following functionality:


SAP AIN ensures a standard and complete description of the customer’s assets. This includes the correct specification of the master data and related details including bills of materials, maintenance plans and operating instructions.


SAP AIN provides manufacturers, plant operators and service employees with a common collaborative platform for continuous exchange of information. These parties can, for example, provide feedback on asset performance and on overall equipment effectiveness, or share action recommendations for maintenance and repair work to extend the life of the plants.


The native integration in numerous SAP solutions, including SAP S/4 HANA or SAP PdMS (SAP Predictive Maintenance and Service), ensures and facilitates a smooth information flow between the individual SAP modules and between all the stakeholders in the network.


In-house developments can help to fulfill specific customer requests. This makes it possible to extend SAP AIN with application-specific functionality. The goal of SAP AIN is to create a global register of industrial machines in which all parties involved in the life cycle of a machine can make information available and thus share it. In addition, it supports machine operators with the planning of maintenance schedules to ensure optimal use of the assets.
