Mechanization Management (briefly)

Besides mechanization engagement posting and monitoring at number of different parameters at the same time (work hours, mileage, transported or excavated quantity…) using NAV Job Journal and Resource Journal and Construction Output Order, it is possible to manage the complete mechanization life cycle with many parameters (types, details, usage, replacement…).


We can monitor at the same time for each mechanization resource:

  • total of all resource hours per day
  • total of working hours
  • total of deadlock and hours and reasons
  • what machine working in these hours
  • what is unit of measure and how much machine worked
  • if this is vehicle, how many tours and what mileage

Based on these information, we can make amazing analysis.

Of course, we have completely fuel consumption evidence, regardless we use our fuel or we buy fuel on gas station. We use standard NAV Item Journal functionality and modify into Fuel Journal with additional evidence about moment fueling (mileage, work hour, computer and EDM state). Based on these information, we can make analysis about fuel consumption in different working conditions.


Each mechanization resource is connected to the fixed assets evidence and other postings in the system (GL, purchase, sale, service…). We have common evidence for all types of services, regardless it is internal or external service. Standard NAV Service Management can do only external service, but we change that and now it can posting internal service with automatic posting on Fixed Assets or FA Maintenance evidence. All costs (external by Purchase Invoice, internal by Internal Service Order) will be automatically posting to the FA with all NAV standard functions.

Besides regular service evidence, we add completely new functionality – Preventive Service. We can post and monitoring all minor activity on each Mechanization Resource, e.g. oil change, oil filter change, battery engagement, tire monitoring by each piece and serial number (installation, replacement, mending, repairing,…) per mileage and working hours, all sets greasing… System can tell us e.g. when we have to change oil and oil filter, based on combination of mileage, dates and work hours information.

System has information about vehicle registration, all types of insurance, technical inspection, MOT and it can inform us when we have to do these.

  1. I’ve been absent for some time, but now I remember why I used to love this blog. Thank you, I’ll try and check back more frequently. How frequently you update your website?
