    We keep a sheet of paper pinned to counter wall for counter help to note time and what they did to clear pins. We keep a camera on each pair of machines to follow up with any problems next day. And we use software on desktop for mechanics log and parts bin/locations etc...

      That is if i worked with chasers. Got so used to knowing each machines quirks,stops etc i myself didn't need a
      binder,just kept it in my head.up tp 40 lanes worth too !
      Worked 40 lanes down to 20 lanes by myself. Back in the day.
      One center took me about 5 months to get machines straightened out but then got maybe 1 call a day,those we're field converted machines to jetback. Owners never knew they could run so smoothly since other guys did squat. (they twisted my arm to get me to fix it all),mostly just indexing issues,preferance systems and complete lubing of machines.
      Ahhhh, the good ole days. lol.
      The problem with with keeping things in your head is the next guy who might have to fix a problem doesn't know what you may or may not have done before. We've got an old mechanic who operates this way, and it drives the rest of us nuts. We have no idea what he might have done because he doesn't document anything. Personally, I log everything I touch with detailed descriptions of what I did whether I fixed the problem or not. I tape notes on motors & chassis, dated & initialed. This dude keeps removing my notes for no apparent reason.

        May want to check Post # 8 of this thread for the checklist I put together for a 10 lane place. They never used it. Some other lists I made for maintenance purposes.

          At my center we transitioned to using Google Docs/Sheets for most of our backend stuff. Stops, checklists, parts, etc. Works great!
