What is an item?
An item can be a variety of things, depending on the type of data you’re accessing. Within a road network, an item is a length of carriageway. In a Jobs layer, an item is a job. In some cases, an item is a lookup option in a data field.
Alloy provides different modules for the item type that you want to create.
Here are a few examples:
|Asset||Designer, Street Lighting||Carriageway sections, Street lights|
|Component type||Designer||Bracket, Controller|
|Work item||Activities||Call out charge, Lamp replace|
If you need to add items in the designer module, contact your administrator.
Types of items and components
The types of items depend on the designs used to create them. Some items represent physical assets, for example, carriageway surface or street lights. Other items represent data relating to assets, for example, defects or inspections. How you view items depend on the data type you’re accessing. Items can be associated with layers to allow you to manage the display of data about assets, or include data about defects or jobs.
Below are some examples of different data categories along with related items and components.
|Jobs||Job||Job work item||Jobs|
