Alternate option to enter time in WM6.1 by disabling CATS

Hello All...

We are in the process of implementing SAP WM6.1 and our client does not want field tech. to enter time in the WM APP which by default interface with CATS. We have disabled CATS support for WM. The time gets updated against the Order/Operation.

The technician sends their time to the TIME admin manually who enters the drive time and wrench time for the tech in the CATS.

Here is my configuration setting in WM.

1. LaborTime.useCATS = 'N'

2. Wo.UseLaborReporting = 'Y'

After this the Labor time getting updated to PM confirmation instead of CATS but I am wondering if the CATS is going to update the Workorder and i am going to have double time booked against the order due to our manual process of entrting TIME in CATS by the admin.

    I guess my question was not phrased correctly.

    My client does not want to use the WM standard to capture the TIME.

    We need to disable both the options below for the technician to enter TIME against the operation.

    1. LaborTime.useCATS = 'N'

    2. Wo.UseLaborReporting = 'N'

    I understand i may have to build a custom interface to capture TIME from the APP and either store it in the custom table in the backend and generate a report at the end of the day and send that report to the TIME admin for manual time entry in the CATS.

    Q. If i enable LaborReporting to capture TIME, will the CATS update by the TIME Admin overwrite or append the hours captured in the operation?

    Thanks for your replies.
