The Work Order is the foundation of all maintenance organizations. Work orders define what resources and items are needed to conduct work. They can
- Manually generated as a routine Work Order
- Automatically generate through the use of preventive Maintenance Schedules
- Issue of an inventoried rebuildable
These Work Orders are then reviewed and shared with Operations to produce an estimated schedule.
Enterprise Asset Management integrates with Oracle Quality. You can use Quality Collection Plans to predefine required feedback information that must be entered into the Enterprise Asset Management system upon a Work Order’s completion. For example, data to collect can include inspection points for an Maintained Number, and Downtime variables. If a variance is recorded into the quality plan, the system creates a Work Request. You can define quality collection plans directly on the Work Order, or define them as attributes of an Activity to ultimately default into future Work Orders generated for specific Maintained Number/Activity combinations.
For each Work Order, the system can aggregate the estimated costs from the associated BOM and resources(Maintenance or activity BOM and Routing), to develop a costing profile for the current Work Order. Costing Profiles are then used for future Budgeting and Forecasting.
For each Work Order, the system can aggregate the actual costs during the lifecycle of the Work Order. These costs are rolled up, based on the hierarchy of the current Work Order’s associated Maintained Number. You can view these actual costs by period, at a transaction level, or at a summary level.
