Add Tools to a Work Order Operation

This instruction explains how you link a tool to a work order operation. Tools typically consist of hand and power tools, such as drills, but could also include lift trucks and so on.


A tool is linked to a specific WO operation. The tool will also be reserved and made available for this specific operation.

Information about tools is stored in the routing operation activity description (MMOOPS) file.
