Easy Work Orders are unplanned Work Orders, and enable you to avoid operation and resource planning. An Activity does not default into the Work Order, based on the Maintained Number/Activity association as with planned Work Orders, however, you can add an Activity to an Easy Work Order. These Work Orders are only created in Maintenance User. After created, the Work Order is automatically at a Released status, enabling you to execute the Work Order. For example, request material and charge labor.

An Enterprise Asset Management Work Order may progress through several statuses throughout its lifecycle duration. The diagram below illustrates how Enterprise Asset Management Work Orders may start at a Draft status, then move to Released, Complete, and finally Closed. These statuses can vary depending on the type of Work Order created. For example, easy Work Orders are created in a Released status, completely bypassing the Draft status
