Add Materials to a Work Order Operation

This document explains how you connect new materials to a work order operation. The document explains how to add materials by entering them manually and how to select materials from the equipment structure.

Outcome

New materials are added to the operation and if WO picklist is used on the WO type parameter 210, delivery is created in 'Delivery. Open Toolbox' (MWS410), else a requisition is created in 'Req/Distr Order. Open' (MMS100).

The material will be available and it will be possible to complete the work.

The information is stored in the (MMOMAT) file.

Before you start

Follow these steps

Add Materials or Spare Parts Manually

  1. Start 'Work Order. Open' (MOS100/B).

  2. Select an appropriate sorting order to identify the correct work order.

  3. Highlight the work order and select option 'Materials and operations' to display 'Work Order. Open Line' (MOS101/B).

  4. Select a sorting order and ensure the panel sequence includes the material related screens E, F or M.

  5. Enter a sequence number and an operation number to which the material is to be linked.

    The sequence number must be entered and could be for example 001, 002, 003 etc.

  6. Enter the item number of the material and select Create.

    You can also enter a kit number or the alias number of the reference number or the customer's item number. Note, however, that the reference number as defined in (MMS001) will automatically be retrieved during entry and used on the picking list and other internal documents.

  7. On the detail panel, enter the quantity to be reserved. Press Enter to return to the B panel. If an order initiated DO or PO should be triggered for this specific material line, line type 1-3 on the F-panel can be used.

    If you add more than one material, you will be prompted to reschedule the work order in 'Work Order. Reschedule' (MOS010) when F3 is pressed.
