A Light-hearted Retro Introduction to boatBuilder ( Thanks, Kris! )
boatBuilder is your spiral bound project notebook, the one that sits on your workbench full of notes and sketches, to-do lists, shopping lists and ideas, made into a fully fledged searchable, interactive reference, planning and management tool as easy to use as the notebook and as powerful as an enterprise application.
Provide clients with detailed building instructions organized by task. Task-specific material lists with generic parts at nominal prices enable up-front budget and weight projections, and builders can then substitute their available parts and materials to arrive at accurate projections.
boatBuilder parts and materials catalogs provide hooks to vendor electronic catalogs, simplifying the task of creating material lists.
Building instructions are enhanced by adding an Engineering Document to a task which allows the addition of images and video as well as notes about recommended practices, quality control and links to reference documents.
Use boatBuilder to plan and organize your boat building project. Organize your "how to" notes, images, video, links and articles into task specific Engineering Documents. Use the community forum and blogs to discuss, create and document "Best Practices".
boatBuilder enables Quality Control and Quality Assurance practices for construction processes and completed items.
boatBuilder plays a role after launching as a Vessel Lifetime Engineering Record. Maintain the build record by using boatBuilder for maintenance, repairs and upgrades. Use the inventory management and purchasing tools to maintain the ship's inventory and supplies.
Using boatBuilder, a thoroughly planned and documented project has greater value to buyers and is more readily insured and financed.
