Close Completed CMMS Work Orders

CMMS Close Completed Work Orders

The COGZ CMMS Close Completed Work Orders process is used to enter completed work orders into the system.  Entering completed work orders will update the preventive maintenance reliability database and all of the cost and history systems.  The most important functions of this procedure is to update the preventive maintenance database to reflect the most recent completion of preventive maintenance tasks and to clear completed CMMS work orders from the work order system.

Change PM Standard Estimated Times to “Task Time” as Tasks are Completed?: This feature automatically transfers the Estimated Time to the estimated PM task time upon completion of the task.

Additional Parts and Labor?: This box is checked by default. Every time a work order is closed you will be asked if you would like to add additional parts and labor. Removing the check from this box will tell the system not to ask these two questions and will reduce the amount of time it takes to close each work order.

Work Order No: The number of the work order that you want to enter as completed. This is a required field. If you do not know the correct number, pressing the lookup button provides access to the Work Order List. Once the work order number is entered, the computer will generate applicable information into other fields.

Date Done: The date this task or work order was completed.

Task Time: The time the task took to complete in decimal hours. If you want to use the systems capabilities to report on estimated task time versus actual time, you must enter actual times taken for each task. The screen will display the estimated time for your review. A decimal hour chart has been included in the Appendix.

Last Hour Done and Last Mile Done fields will only be displayed if you have scheduled preventive maintenance tasks by those items.

Last Hour Done: If scheduled by hours, this is the current hours that the task was completed. You will be required to enter a last hour done if this is the manner in which you have scheduled this task in the PM section.

Last Mile Done: If scheduled by miles, this is the current miles that the task was completed. You will be required to enter a last mile done if this is the manner in which you have scheduled this task in the PM section.

If the task is scheduled by meters and uses fixed days as a backup when you close the work order the last fixed done will not be incremented. A reminder will pop up on your screen when you close this type of work order.

Task Comment: Work order comments can be added when closing work orders. Each complete task can have its own comment. For additional task comment space you may click on the note icon to the right of the task comment field.
