Production: Differences between OPS 1.0 & 4.0 projects.

FCS has the ability to complete new construction, reroof, or large projects in two different applications.  This article aims to explain the similarities and differences between OPS 1.0 and 4.0.  Along the way we will provide best practices to help chose which OPS is best for a particular job. 

 We will start by summarizing the capabilities of OPS 1.0 & 4.0 in the table below.

You can see in the table above OPS 1.0 and 4.0 share the same capabilities except for how the foreman enters % complete for a Day of Work in the mobile app.
Lets take a closer look and see how they differ.

OPS 1.0:

Foreman who struggle utilizing the outline drawing tools will enjoy using OPS 1.0. OPS 1.0 is less tech savvy and simpler to use.  The foreman will add the amount of squares removed and replaced.  The program will calculate the % complete for you.

OPS 1.0 may be a better option for new construction or a roof where an aerial image cannot be obtained.   

 

 

OPS 4.0:

OPS 4.0 rely's on the foreman to outline the section of the roof.  The outline will calculate the square foot area and the % complete. In cases such as new construction you can use architectural designs as the aerial image. 

 

Congratulations! You now have a better understanding of OPS 1.0 and 4.0.  Hopefully we have given you some insight as to their similar capabilities, how they capture % complete and some best practices of when to chose one option over the other.
