Hi Luke, think we’re gunning for something a little more maintenance focussed.
Currently I’m keeping a lot of information on spreadsheets/paper rather than on Breww, it would certainly be nice to be able to integrate more.
Each major piece of equipment is going to have a maintenance history & basic information that is handy to have available (manufacturer, service provider details, date of install, service history, spare parts inventory etc.) - The current equipment pages don’t allow a great amount of detail to be stored (adding custom fields could improve that?).
Adding spares inventory to equipment pages would be useful - could this be achieved by tagging/linking inventory items to particular equipment, so that a specific list is available on the equipment page?
Currently scheduled tasks can only be done weekly not daily, everything is hidden a couple of pages deep, detail can only be entered as notes.
I don’t believe C&M records can be prompted in tasks?
Task handling isn’t particularly user friendly via the tasks function, and wouldn’t raise a C&M record which would then have to entered manually, not very useful for regularly occurring tasks, or for analysing records or reporting.
I suppose the tasks feature basically needs a bit of an overhaul. Possibly with the mobile app in mind - maybe treat tasks as a wizard function (a bit like racking) that can trigger & run through a particular record process that could have user set fields. (This would be not just useful for C&M recording, but also fermentation records etc)
A maintenance support ticket feature could be useful for production staff reporting faults and tracking and recording fixes?
I do like the idea of a daily rundown feature. Details for individual users, or user groups for the day ahead with scheduled tasks, deliveries etc.
You’d probably want to add in handover information from the previous day, maybe get the daily rundown to bring in information from certain tasks, so you could make a ‘end of day’ task/report that could help feed this in.
