Daily Inspection

We have 400 fleets at 1 location. Daily morning inspection is done for each and every vehicle. If I mapped this inspection by taking all vehicles in object list (in one order) then cost will not be booked on each and every vehicle. How can I map this process, so that we not need to open 400 orders for each vehicle? And also cost also booked to each and every vehicles

    You want to have fruitful solution with painless job.

    First, This daily inspection will not incur much cost. This inspection is kind of check list activities to capture the condition of vehicle before starting for the day.

    Instead of going for PM Orders or Notifications, just you can map this process using Measuring Points & creating Measurement documents.

    If you create PM Order with object list, cost can't be booked on each equipment. Even with custom settlement rule, only in FICO point cost will be distributed among those cost centers. In PM point, cost will be shown only on header reference object.

    The same point applicable even you activate Operation Level Costing. With that, instead of creating custom settlement rule, you can have operation wise settlement rule. But with this as well, PM point cost view according to equipment is not possible.

    So you have to take call on this whether to book the cost separately by creating 400 PM orders or booking cost to header object by creating only one PM Order or handling the process with Measuring points.

    There's not enough info in you post, so here's some questions:

    • Are the vehicles always the same, or do they change day to day
    • What information do record in the daily inspection
    • Is the time/materials/purchases/etc. large ( costs)
    • Is the inspection carried out by one or more persons, and do they need to book their time in the system
    • Do you want the order/notifs created automatically

    • If you want the costs for each equipment, then you will need 400 orders (unless you use operation costing, then you can assign equipment to operations).

      You could either do this with maintenance plans, or create a customer-specific program to do this.

      This would depend on whether it is the same equipment each day, or whether the equipment are constantly changing. It would also depend on what service is required for each equipment??

    Hello Rajesh,

    Not every inspection will involve cost factor. As far as inspection recording is concerned we can follow measuring document approach. And where ever lubs or oil is required we will have to create maintenance order to capture the cost for every fleet.

    One Suggestion:

    We can create a FL and an order type (Inspection). Lubs,Oils to booked in that maintenance order, list of fleets to be added in a Object List.

    We can have some custom program to segregate the cost amongst the fleets in Object list.
