Before you start

A quotation must exist in 'Maint Quotation. Open Information' (COS115). The quotation should have status 20=Definite.

Follow These Steps

  1. Start 'Maint Quotation. Open Information' (COS115/B).

    You reach this panel by selecting option 'Quotation' in 'Maintenance Customer Orders. Open Line' (COS101).

  2. Highlight the quotation and select the appropriate option to register the customer's response.

    The valid options are:

    • Reject the quotation with option Rejected. This will set the status to 30. Any work request or held work order with quotations will be set to status Q4. Action message Q4 will be generated for any work order with quotation that is not held. This indicates that the quotation was rejected by the customer.
    • Partly accept the quotation with option 'Partly accepted'. This will set the quotation status to 40. Any work request or held work order linked to the quotation will get status Q5. Action message Q5 will be generated for any work order linked to the quotation that is not held. This is an indication that some of the suggested work was rejected.
    • Fully accept the quotation by using the option Accepted. This will set the quotation status to 50. Any work request in (MOS170) will receive status Q6. Any held work order with quotation records will be set to status 50, which indicates that work can start again.
    • Fully accept the quotation and release any work request or work order with option 'Accept/Release Work Request'. This will set the quotation status to 50. Also, any work request linked to the quotation will be released to (MOS100). Any work order with quotation records will be set to status 50, which indicates that work can start again.
