What is it?
The 'Install Engineer Van Stock List' is a document used to manage the Installation Engineer's stock held within the van. The form has been pre-populated with the more common installation materials and the format can easily be adapted to add further items or tailor to your personal requirements.
When would you use it?
You would use the 'Install Engineer Van Stock List' to find the install materials and their bin locations on each van.
Why would you use it?
You would use the 'Install Engineer Van Stock List' as it very quickly removes any potential shortfalls with van stocks, reductions in first time fix and additional trips to the merchants. If you get your local merchant to pre-populate prices against each material in the list then this will also help you gain an accurate idea how much you are spending on each item. All too often fittings and smaller materials costs are guessed and can become expensive as precious metals are forever on the increase. The form takes a few minutes to complete but can save valuable time and avoid disagreements on material shortages into the future.
For the medium to large companies there are usually regular complaints regarding materials shortages from poor surveys. These shortages create additional visits to the merchants delaying expected completion times. If this element isn't included in the standard process it can have a major impact on work planning, customer satisfaction, employee morale and ultimately profit margins. Using this template will help replace van stock items and feed back any survey shortages via this list. Again this has been developed to enable you to alter the template to meet your individual needs.
