  • Updated

Inside Foreman, an operator at a bitcoin mining facility would utilize a variety of assets, inventory and ticket features to manage and optimize operations effectively.

Here is a list of some components that an operator might find to be of benefit :

  • Asset List
  • Asset History
  • Asset Linked with a Miner
  • Inventory List
  • Inventory Count
  • Ticket Count
  • Ticket History
  • Ticket Status
  • User permissions
  • Moving a miner and linking it with an asset


The Assets list provides a comprehensive overview of all the hardware assets, such as mining rigs, power units, and cooling systems. Operators can view details like model, serial number, and location of each asset. There are custom fields available so an operator can define their asset listings based on unique identifiers.

2. On the Assets page, an Operator can access a detailed log of each asset’s operational history, this includes any user action that has been performed using the specified asset. This will allow an operator to track an asset as it gets moved around a mining facility throughout the lifetime of the mining rig.

Click "View History" on the assets page to view the history of all the assets. Within the History modal you can search for specific assets. You can also click on the actions tab/history within an asset to view the history of an individual asset.

3. The Sync Assets tool allows operators to link specific assets to individual miners (the actual mining devices). This linkage helps in monitoring and managing the performance of each miner, while following an asset management cycle. Think depreciation performance.

The inventory list helps manage all inventory items necessary for the operation of the mining facility, such as spare parts, mining units, cables, and other equipment. This list includes details about each item’s availability and location of the part. In order to fit the needs of any organization, an operator can create custom inventory types and custom inventory fields.

The Ticket List shows the number of active tickets, such as issues reported, maintenance requests, and other operational tickets. This feature helps an operator track how many issues are currently being handled and how many have been resolved. It is the cornerstone tool for managing the ticket repair cycle.

7. Operators can review the history of all tickets generated for various tasks and issues. This includes who created the ticket, the nature of the issue, resolution steps taken, and the current status. This historical insight is crucial for identifying recurring problems and improving operational efficiency.

By defining roles and permissions, the operator can customize access levels for different team members based on their responsibilities and needs, preventing unauthorized access and potential security breaches. This granularity not only enhances security but also ensures that each team member has the necessary tools and information to perform their duties effectively without compromising the integrity and security of the entire operation.
