A job in Alloy is any activity that results in a change to an asset, component or set of assets. Examples include repairs, replacements, removals or cleanings. To manage jobs you can create job designs with forms tailored to your needs. When you have a new job type that is going to be used within your project you need to create a job design.

The basic Alloy job design includes the following set of interfaces that allow you to create jobs.
