It is integrated in the BAMP (Base station Alarm Monitoring and Per- formance) system and both of them coexist as a symbiotic system. The user interface include: in- ventory (storage) management, part (hardware unit) tracking, interventions workflow manage- ment, reports and history views. Keywords – base station, mobile network, mainte- nance support system, inventory, part tracking, interventions workflow. 1. INTRODUCTION The mobile network is subject to fast expansion. As new technologies arrive, mobile operators may need to use mixed equipment configurations. The need for operation and maintenance tasks grows as the net- work expands. To support such mobile networks, an effective sup- port system is needed. The support system must pro- vide: inventory (storage) management; part (hardware unit) tracking; interventions workflow management; reporting; history views. 2. MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT Good maintenance pays off. The reliability of equip- ment improves while the cost of ownership is re- duced. Establishing an effective maintenance man- agement system is one of the most cost effective ac- tions that an owner can make. An effective mainte- nance management system will maximize the return from your maintenance costs by identifying ongoing problems and eliminating non-productive mainte- nance practices. A good Maintenance Management System (MMS) is similar to a good Accounting System in that both require coordinated databases to function correctly. The casual observer is tempted to simply buy Generic Maintenance or Accounting programs and modify the operation to fit the software, but in practice, Generic Programs never quite meet the operational needs of an organization and are often abandoned. The purpose of a MMS is to improve the quality and to reduce the cost of maintenance. The MMS has both scheduling and analytical functions. It provides a means of quantitatively evaluating maintenance cost, response time, downtime, repeat write-ups and train- ing. One of the most important outputs from a main- tenance management system is to provide the factual data necessary the justify maintenance expenditures.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
