ArmoryBook keeps track of the total number of rounds fired for each firearm along with the number of rounds fired since its last cleaning. These counts are used in various system notifications and information displays. To increase the accuracy of these counts, and to allow for more detailed maintenance information, each maintenance type can new be tagged as Barrel Cleaned During Maintenance.
When ArmoryBook is tallying rounds fired for range trips and cross-referencing maintenance records, it will use this new classification to indicate if the rounds fired since last cleaning should be reset. This new feature will allow for the creation of detailed maintenance types that will NOT affect the round counts on a firearm. For example, a maintenance type of "Refinish Stock" can be created with the Barrel Cleaned During Maintenance field not checked. When this maintenance type is used, it will have no affect on the tallying of round counts but still allow for tracking the stock refinish that was performed.
Maintenance type information can be modified in the system setup screen. To access the setup screen, go to the main menu setup option and select Maintenance Type.
The Maintenance Type listing screen has a new column, Barrel Cleaned. This provides a quick way to identify if a maintenance type will affect the tallying of round counts.
The Edit Maintenance Type screen now has a checkbox, Barrel Cleaned During Maintenance. The value set here will be used as the default value when this type of maintenance is selected on a maintenance record.
When entering a maintenance entry for a gun, the Barrel Cleaned option will change dynamically based on the value selected for the maintenance type field (Complete Breakdown in the image below). The Barrel Cleaned option can be checked/un-checked for any maintenance type, regardless of how it was configured. This allows for setting this value on a case by case basis. For example, if during a Complete Breakdown maintenance the barrel is usually cleaned, but in this case it was NOT, you can simply un-check the Barrel Cleaned option and the round count will not be reset when the system is doing its calculations.
The Barrel Cleaned During Maintenance information has been added to several reports, the first is the Maintenance Info report. This report is available from the main menu report option as seen below.
To simplify displaying this information in the report, and to try to include as much information without adding new columns, an * has been added to the Maintenance Type column (red arrow in the image below).
A barrel cleaned column can be displayed, if desired, by selecting the Barrel Cleaned option in the Column Visibility selector.
Below you can see the Barrel Cleaned column displayed. Noticed that the * is still displayed in the Maintenance Type column.
As in the Maintenance Info report, the Barrel Cleaned During Maintenance information has been added to the Maintenance Aging report. This report is available from the main menu report option as seen below.
The Maintenance Aging report has been modified to include an * in the Maint Type column (red arrow in the image below) just as in the Maintenance Info report. The barrel cleaned column can be displayed, if desired, by selecting the Barrel Cleaned option in the Column Visibility selector.
When Maintenance Aging information is displayed on the home screen it will also include the * indicator in the Maint Type column.
