There are a few ways to capture operational notes in the Pani platform, but the recommended (and quickest) route is to use Quick Logs. Designed to replace paper logs and hand-written journals, these entries are useful in providing context regarding conducted maintenance, as well as potential plant anomalies. As these entries accumulate, the platform will also be able to use them for future data analysis.

Why Quick Log entries?

Pani’s users can click on the “Add Data” button when logged into the platform to create a Quick Log. Inputting the date and time of the entry provides information about when the entry occurred, with a handy “Now” button for real-time updates.

Notes about maintenance or other observations can be added and using hashtags allows users to generate keywords or “tags” that can be used across the platform in future for easy lookup of data points such as #repair, #temperature, or #leak.

Other relevant tags can be added through the dropdown list that automatically appears. Specific assets can also be tagged using the @ symbol to create an entry that pertains to a particular pump or tank, for example.

As more tags and assets are regularly used across the platform, the structured data enables machine learning to improve the search function and creates the most complete picture of plant performance. Using the Quick Log function lets operators make note of things in just a few seconds and enables other features and views, such as Interactive or Reports, to deliver a deeper understanding of real-time operations.

A collection of Quick Log entries provides context for smoother operational workflows.

Data can also be edited in case there’s a mistake so that the most up-to-date and accurate information is flowing through the platform to other team members. (And so they know to keep an eye out for that lunch-eating frog! 🐸🥪)

Be sure to use Quick Logs to save time, while ensuring important details about a particular asset or maintenance process don’t get overlooked!
