- Flexible order processing
Ideally, the maintenance order must be capable of being opened with a minimum data entry (for example, in the case of a malfunction). On the other hand, there are some business processes in Maintenance, such as revisions, transfers or new constructions, for which the maintenance order should provide a wide range of functionality – working with external companies, network configuration, permit processes, cost statements, material reservations and others.
- Object Reference:
The Maintenance order either refers to one specific object or to a group of any number of objects which can be displayed in an object list in the maintenance order.
- Period of Validity
An individual order is valid for a specific piece of maintenance work only. In the case of standing order, however, you do not create a new order every time a new piece of work needs to be done. The standing order is valid for a certain period of time. It is created to cover minor repairs, and all times and materials are posted to it.
Maintenance orders are performed by internal company employees or are outsourced to external companies.
