Hi
Is there any software out there that helps save time in the collection of data and the generation of worksheets and Form 1's?

thanks

I am looking for software to use in a couple of component repair shops

It should:

  • collect a/c and job information
  • produce filled in form ones
  • produce in house component work sheets
  • Maintain service history for the components and a/c presented.
  • It needs to be affordable by a small repair shop
  • Help produce the paper work cutting down the labor effort needed to produce the paper work whilst at no time interfering with the integrity of the form one - ie no digital signatures, and tradesmen must make the entries for the form one - but automate field positioning, spelling, and standard compliance statements, ie reduce/eliminate the need to do basic word processing.
  • Keep search-able digital records for the jobs passing through the shop.
  • Provide the ability to email owners of a certain part of aircraft, in response to an AD effecting particular a/c by model etc.

If you don't know of any but you think this sounds like a great piece of software to have - by all means reply here or send me a message.

thanks

Hi Whompen,

You may want to look into using a Wikipedia reference-linkwiki. A wiki is software that allows you and your team to create interlinked web pages very easily. Each such wiki page can contain a work instruction or job records, and can link to all related pages. Wiki pages are searchable.

We are using the Projectforum wiki engine and are very happy with it. We use it for our QMS, for project management, record keeping, and proposals management.

A good, basic intro to wikis is Alan Porter's Wiki: Grow Your Own for Fun and Profit.

Hope this helps!

thanks for your reply. Indeed I am already using a wiki at one site and installing a wiki into the other next week. We use mediawiki - I will check out project forum and see if it's a better fit.

I am looking at taking the automation to the next level. I am a software developer and I am wondering if there is a market for such a product.

Are there any short comings in your project wiki solution? How does the idea of a software product specifically targeting this area at an affordable price sound to you?

thanks

Oh, so you probably have a good feel for the advantages and disadvantages of wikis versus dedicated software.

Compared to Mediawiki, one thing I like about ProjectForum is it's ability to define sub-wikis. These subwikis have their own namespaces, so that you can have a page titled, say, "to-do" for each project with no ambiguity.

As far as shortcomings for wikis, two come to mind: (1) handling structured data, and (2) formatting for publishing. With some effort, we have written a few Rails web apps that run from within the wiki and solve both problems where they were critical (FMEA and nicely formatted proposal PDFs). We also complement the wiki with an Open source CAPA db (bugzilla).

I don't know whether there is a market for software like what you describe, but a packaged wiki-database combo might make a compelling product.
