Do you use "per document"?

Started this discussion. Last reply by James Barnett Oct 30, 2017. 5 Replies

Do any of you use per document or per plat, even if the dedication is from another document? I like using per for something like this: 50' r/w per Plat Book I, Page 2, because I don't know where the…Read more →

Managing office and field schedule

As our company grows, we are having trouble keeping the department's schedule running nice and smooth. We have tried, using calendars, and spreadsheets, but it seems that for us a whiteboard for the fieldcrew and a whiteboard for the cad team is the way to go. Does anyone out there have some good ideas that allow the project manager, fieldcrews, and the cad team to all see schedules at the same time so everyone knows what is going on and can give their input?See More

"Hi James, we used to use a book then white boards then call everyone to check they know what they are doing etc etc... We created in 2007/2008 a data base using Microsoft Access under windows XP professional but in 2012/2014 this became very tedious…"

"Great suggestions everyone. I don't think I will ever stop using the whiteboard, but one day I hope to find a good management software, that let's everyone participate from the office or the field."

"You're on the right track James, there may be a few apps around but the white board is still the best. A board for everyone to see, as soon as anyone comes in the office or while working or whatever one is doing, it is there reminding the whole…"

"There are a lot of apps if everyone involved can get on board with one, I think that a schedule template from Excel is easy and can be done by smart phone or tablet or laptop/ PC. The real issue is every one understanding that things change quickly…"

Matthew Jennings replied to James Barnett's discussion Do you use "per document"?
"I ALWAYS use per.  How else can you expect the others following you to know where you got the data.  Whether it is correct or not, you have told them where you got the information and it helps them figure out why you did what you…"

Profile Information

I am here because I am a.
Professional Land Surveyor
Surveyor Bio:
I went to college to be a computer programmer, but realized exclusively sitting in front a computer was not for me. I had a friend who's mother was a survey professor and I went to talk to her about the career. I fell in love with the idea of being able to be outside and travel, but still use my natural affinity for computers on a day to day basis. I then proceeded to acquire my B.S. in Spatial Information Systems and my license. I've worked in the Florida Keys, north and south Arkansas, and in south Texas. Each of these areas I have seen beautiful parts of our country and met wonderful people. I am now unemployed and I have started trying to connect with other surveyors looking for work that will allow me to travel.
