Work orders can be created for assets or locations. Calem uses the following logic to find the cost center when a work order is created:
- If cost center is set by users in the work order the steps below are skipped. It is done.
- If a work order is created for an asset, the asset's cost center is used if available. Otherwise, the cost center of the asset's location is used.
- If a work order is created for a location, the cost center of the location is used.
Department by Cost Centers
A department can be configured for each cost center. It overwrites the dept code set at the asset level when a cost center is defined in a work order.
You can configure department code at cost center screens: Org module | Codes | Cost Centers. When a cost center is populated at a work order, the department code is filled based on the cost center by Calem.
