Thanks for that good information, Gee Bee. Interesting.
Yes Ed, I had in my mind that a user would log on to the website, enter his (her) password, then enter or select the data-set (job-site, hospital etc.) to which access is entitled.
The database engine (programs) would be common, as would as much of the data as possible (eg, addresses database, generic equipment data, PM procedures etc.). These common databases would be open for everyone to update, edit (or muck-up
But I would like to see links to standard databases wherever good ones already exist (eg, ECRI, ebme etc.).
Userís specific data (equipment list, user departments, customer database, parts stock etc.) would obviously be securely linked to them only.
OK guys, when do we start coding?
