Report Work Start
This instruction explains how to report that work is started on an operation within M3 Maintenance. This is not always a requirement
to continue the work order process.
Use this instruction when you need to start the work order operations that use an order type in which parameter 410 is set
in 'Work Order Type. Open' (MOS120).
The operation is started, the actual start date on the work order is updated and registration of time spent on the operation
Work can be started on the operation.
The status of the operation is updated to 60.
Before you start

Parameter 410 in 'Work Order Type. Open' (MOS120) should be activated.
Work order operations must exist in 'Work Order. Open Line' (MOS101).
All users must be registered in 'User. Connect Authority' (CRS545). Authorization to approve transactions and make changes to reported transactions can also be set.
Work hours definition must be defined in 'Work Hour Definition. Open' (CRS505). An error message regarding reporting number will be displayed if the work hours do not exist or are not valid.
A general work schedule should exist in 'Work Schedule. Open' (CRS515). The work schedule specifies which work hour definitions apply, day by day for a specific period (i.e., a year). The work
