Once your part is defined make sure you create a record for each store where this part will be tracked on the Stores tab of the Parts screen. Once you have created a store record, you can define the repair details of that part for that store on the Repair Details tab of the Parts screen as follows:

  1. Select either Internal Repair or External Repair.

    This selection is only relevant for the Generate WOs and Generate Requisition process that automatically create repair work orders and requisitions. If you create the repairable spare work order or the external repair requisition manually, you can pick any of the core tracked parts, regardless the selection you made on this screen.

  2. Select the Default Core Bin. Returning parts for repair is made a little easier if a default repair bin is selected. The system will, where applicable, default this bin on the screen.

  3. Select Auto-Assign. If you select Auto-Assign the system will automatically assign parts when you create a Repair Parts record on the repairable spare work order or when you approve an external repair requisition line. You would never need to open the Assign Repair Details popup because the system will take care of it. You may still have to look at the assigned parts because it tells you where the parts come from, or it tells you which assets are included. But if you do not want to manually choose which parts or assets to repair this is a handy option.

  4. Select Use Stock Method check box so the system will not default the core quantity available but will use the replenishment logic like it would use for automatic replenishment. This setting is relevant for the Generate WOs and Generate Requisitions automatic processes only. For manually created work orders or requisitions it will still default the quantity to repair.

Specify these Internal Repair details

  1. WO Equipment - The Generate WOs process will use this equipment to generate the repairable spare work order. Ideally this is equipment dedicated to the repair of the part number. It does not have to be ‘existing’ equipment. The use of a system for this purpose comes to mind. If all the repairable spare work orders for the same part are written to the same equipment, then over time you can see how much money was spent on the repair of this part. And since the work orders also collect the amount repaired per work order you would be able to calculate the cost per repaired part. Maybe it is cheaper to buy new and not repair.

  2. Department - The Generate WOs process will use this Department to generate the repairable spare work order.

  3. Standard WO - The Generate WOs process will use this Standard WO to generate the repairable spare work order. The Type of this standard work order must be ‘Repairable Spare.’

  4. Internal Repair Price - The Internal Repair Receipts screen will use this price as the default if a value is entered. An install parameter determines whether you can enter this value or not.

Specify these External Repair details

  1. Preferred Supplier - The Generate Requisitions process will use this supplier to generate the external repair requisitions.

  2. Min Repair Qty. - The minimum quantity that is accepted by the Preferred Supplier. The Generate Requisitions process will exclude the parts for which the quantity to repair is less than this minimum.

  3. Lead Time (Days) - The Generate Requisitions process will calculate the Requested Before date based on this lead time.
