Usage Based Maintenance Schedule

So many of our customers repair products based on hours of usage. replace belts at 300 hours, inspect something at 200 hours. We should have the ability to build maint schedules under products or assets which then automatically generate work orders or work order tasks when these Timers are met...

Thank you for your feedback. We think this idea has merit.

We need some more details to understand this suggestion better:

  • Is this a simple timer (i.e. things run continuously) or does the equipment start/stop? We suspect the latter.
    • If the equipment starts/stops and if the asset is connected, we could potentially use IoT signals or Flow to pass run-time details back to the system.
    • Otherwise, how have you heard or given thought to how this run information would be captured?

Obviously, we would want such a feature to be useful and not another manual task. We're eager to see what kind of votes this gets.

 

Sincerely,

PM, Jason Cohen

Booking creation by agreements to respect resources unavailable time

When an agreement is creating recurring bookings, typically to a prefferred resource, it is not respecting if that resource is unavailable. A booking may be in conflict with the resources work-schedule, workday breaks, approved time-off requests, planned abscence / sick-leave or that a resourc...

Thank you for your feedback.

We think of the auto-booking creation by the Agreement Booking Setup record like a recurring meeting in Outlook. If a recurring meeting is created, Outlook doesn't try to move the booking to another person or time if the attendee is busy, on vacation, or in another meeting, it will simply create the booking at the time and for the resource specified.

If you consider what moving the booking would mean, even if we wanted to move the booking more intelligently to another resource or time, how should we universally move the booking to a spot that the business will find suitable? The solution quickly begins to look a lot like the Resource Schedule Optimization add-in. Which is ultimately what we'd suggest for more responsive, intelligent booking scenarios. The system would book unscheduled work orders or would move the recurring booking to a new resource or time depending on the configuration of the RSO.

As always, we really appreciate your feedback. Keep the suggestions coming.

Thank you,
