Home Forums Shop Control SHOP WO


    Posted by Deleted User on 09/09/2013 at 8:51 AM

    We are looking into implementing the use of Shop WO for supplies, duplicate issued parts that are damaged by a mechanic, etc….

    – Does anyone know the best way to set this up?

    – Are there any flags that separate these parts and this WO from the normal internal/external WO?

    – Is it possible to have it set up showing what department it was issued to? or would we need to do multiple Shop WOs order per dept?

    Thanks in advance!

    Jackie, I suggest you look into using the Stock Issue function for this type of activity.

    It was designed specifically for this purpose, and would probably be much, much easier.

    Paul, Thanks! We do currently use stock issue for kiting but did not know it was actually for this. I will get with QC to look further into this.

    Hi Jackie,

    We have a non-stock work order setup to handle shop supplies. The non-stock work order sends everything to COG when issued, so even if the shop supplie is not flagged as ‘expendable’ in the Parts Master it will move the costs directly to the bottom line.

    We found it useful to setup our shop supplies as generic part numbers and then link the actual vendor part numbers to it as a direct alternate. This makes it easier for the floor technicians to identify shortages, and allows purchasing to choose which vendor they want to purchase from. The use of the generic part number will keep your list of shop supplies shorter.

    As for the mechanics time for reworks, entering it into a non-stock work order will definitely capture the data. You could also use a $0 skill in the actual work order to reflect the rework. This way that skill could be extracted on a report and be tied to that (part number) product. Some products are prone to more rework due to initial design parameters, so capturing the time there can help drive focused improvements.
