The existing Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software provides a single work order application with fixed options and limited space, never taking into account the various nuances needed for each user role or step in the WO lifecycle.
At AMS, we understand that each step of the WO Process is important. Introducing the AMS WO Lifecycle Suite for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.
Step One: REQUEST NEW WORK ORDER
The first step of the Lifecycle begins when someone notices a problem, so they raise a work request and submit for approval. Our customers love being able to navigate the hierarchy of their plant, choose the equipment for repair, and the simplified Work Request screen that is easy and intuitive.
Step Two: PLAN WORK
Planners have a difficult task trying to coordinate parts, internal resources (such as mechanics & electricians), checklists, and external contractor resources. With our enhanced Planning Workbench, the task of planning work is simplified and clear.
Step Three: SCHEDULE WORK
After planning comes scheduling – a normal work order, what we call a corrective work order, will need to be carefully scheduled down to the week or day, in order to avoid any disruption to production. An emergency, or a reactive work order, can leapfrog all the way from a request to a tradesperson performing the work.
Step Four: PERFORM WORK
“Knowledge (or data) is the seed, and information is the harvest.” Documenting and taking careful notes on how an issue is resolved is an important part of this Execution step. This will help current and future teams know how to manage and prevent problems in the future.
Step Five: REVIEW WORK
For any tightly run organization, the review process is an integral step in the Lifecycle. Did it cost more than we said it would? Did it take as much time as we thought it would? Is there anything we need to know for next time? These notes are game changers for any successful enterprise.
Step Six: ACCOUNTING CLOSE
The accounting close process locks the work order down into history, makes sure all the vendors have been paid, and makes sure you’ve allocated the expense of the maintenance correctly. AMS Work Order Lifecycle Suite ensures this process is automated so as not to burden the Maintenance department with additional processes to post to Accounting.
