This document explains how to handle tool requirements, material requirements and permits for a work order. The procedures described here are not mandatory and do not have to be performed to continue with the work order process.
Use this process before you perform the actual work on a work order.
When required, all the necessary permits are reported, which ensures that the equipment is made safe to work on. All the required tools are allocated and issued to the work order. All materials are available for work to begin.
The work that is to be performed can start and should run without interruptions.
For more information about changes in M3, refer to the documents listed in the See Also section.
The work order must exist in 'Work Order. Open' (MOS100) along with lines in 'Work Order. Open Line' (MOS101).
Complete the following steps before you perform the actual work on a work order.
Start and stop permits
Start and stop permits in 'WO Operation. Report Permits' (MOS087) to indicate that the equipment is properly isolated before work begins.
Check tools availability and allocate tools
Check the tool availability to ensure that required tools are available to complete the work in the work order. Allocate the tools to reserve them for a specific job.
You can check tool availability and allocate tools in 'Work Order. Open Tool Requirements' (MOS133).
Allocate tools to reserve them for a job. This will prevent the tool from being taken for other jobs, stopping or delaying the current job.
If the tool is not allocated and issued in (MOS133), it can be done in 'Allocation. De-allocate Tool' (MMS127).
Check component availability against a work order
Check the component availability in 'Work Order. Check Component Availability' (MOS040) to make sure all materials are available and the job won't be stopped due to material shortages.
Issue materials against a work order
Materials can be issued in one of the following ways:
Related option 29='Flag complete' can be used to close the line, however, for this to be available:
Register non-stocked materials from a work order
To register the material cost and get accurate costing, register non-stocked materials that have not been purchased using the regular purchasing process in (MOS101).
Trigger a non-stocked PO request from a work order
Trigger a purchase request in (MOS101) for non-stocked items that are needed in order to complete the job. This allows these items to be bought.
Receive goods against a work order
Receive goods that have been bought in order to complete a job. Receiving the goods will introduce them into the system and allow you to use them for the maintenance job.
Goods are received in 'Purchase Order. Receive Goods' (PPS300).
