Preparing Work Order Operations

Operations (also known as tasks) are the instructions to perform a repair. Each operation is assigned to a department, associated with assigned resources (trades people, outside service providers, and equipment). When you create a Work Order for a Maintained Number, you can attach the Maintained Number’s associated Activity to that Work Order, bringing its related maintenance route and BOM. The maintenance route is comprised of operations necessary in completing the Activity. You can view and update these operations right from the Work Order.

1.1 Select a scheduled Start Date for this operation to be based on a forward schedule. The Enterprise Asset Management scheduling process uses the scheduled start date as a starting point to calculate the duration of the operation, based on the resources and material. If the material and resources are not available by this date, the scheduling process moves the start date of the Work Order forward. The planning process uses the scheduled start date to recommend creation of purchase orders for the material.

Select a scheduled Completion date for this operation to be based on a backward schedule. The Enterprise Asset Management scheduling process uses the scheduled end date as a starting point to calculate the duration of the operation, based on the resources and material. If the material and resources are not available by this date, the scheduling process moves the completion date of the Work Order backward. The planning process uses the scheduled completion
date to recommend creation of purchase orders for the material.

1.2 Optionally, select a Shutdown Type from the list of values. This helps the planner group Work Orders that may require shutdowns, so that they can be planned together.

2. Operations can be scheduled to run in parallel, sequence, or through dependent steps. In the screen shot above, for example, Operation 20 is dependent on Operation 10, since there is a line connecting the operations; Operation 20 cannot be performed until Operation 10 is complete. Operations 30 and 40 run in parallel to each other. Operation 40 is  independent; it can be performed at any time.

3. Optionally, choose Materials to view or update the associated items list for the current operation.

4. Optionally, choose Resources to view or update the resources assigned to the current operation.
