The pre-defined SOW (Scope of Work) templates or subcontract templates are used to standardize the work specifications needed for subcontracting. At the beginning of a subcontracting project, you can create company standard SOW templates. For example, you can create a master template in a product group, and then copy that template to different projects. You can then modify the templates at the project level, if needed.
SOW templates are maintained on the D.60.01 SOW Templates screen.
In the first (SOW Templates) block, enter the name of the SOW template in the SOW Template field and the template descriptions in the Short Desc and Description fields. The template revision is automatically set to the default 0 (zero) and displayed in the Rev field. The system date is entered as the revision date in the Rev Date field.
You can click Revision to create a new revision of the selected SOW template. The revision is increased by 1, and all dependent details (SOW sections) are copied as well. You can update records of the latest revision only. The previous revision of the template is locked; that is, the previous template revision cannot be modified any longer.
In the second (SOW Sections) block, you can describe the single scope of work sections of the selected SOW template. Enter the section name in the SOW Section field, and enter the section descriptions in the Short Desc and Description fields. In the Description field, you can enter up to 20,000 characters, which allows a detailed description of the required work.
