Tip of the Month – August 2013

Fuel Reporting Using Field Management Professional

As part of the latest release of FMP, we have added the ability to track and report fuel used within the system. Using the fuel reporting option within FMP will allow users to track fuel used in each piece of equipment.  Combining the fuel used with the hours worked, there are new reports within the system to calculate the gallons per hour for each piece and each class of equipment.  The first step in setting up FMP to track fuel is to create an “Equipment Service Project.”  This is an option on the new project set up window.

Once the project is set up, the system automatically imports the current equipment list into the project.  Instead of reporting quantities for cost codes, the equipment service project allows the equipment service personnel to report gallons of fuel dispensed to each piece of equipment.

Within the Office system, we have added new reports that allow you to view the “gallons per hour” for each piece of equipment as well as each class of equipment.  A sample of this report is shown below.
