Material – Search, Reserve, Issue and Exchange
MyPM can accommodate having selected material records transferred to the device. These can then have their balance and location displayed, be reserved against the Work Order component (demand), issued to the Work Order or, where serialised, exchanged an Equipment. Material profiles attached to user profiles allocated to a user determines what material they get on their device.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This functionality is not intended to replicate large numbers of stock records – i.e. beyond 10k in total. If there is a need for extensive material balance functionality then that should ideally be met from a separate online application better suited to this type of use case.
