The Work Order Management Process Explained
Work Orders form the heart of maintenance sphere of a business. Work orders can be manually generated through a work request submitted by a staff member, client, tenant, or automatically generated through a CMMS or Preventive Maintenance PM schedule. Work Orders can also be generated via follow ups to Inspections or Audits. A work request is usually routed into the system by customer or other department staff to make the concerned maintenance team aware of a task. The work request is reviewed by a maintenance manager, who might add additional information or rephrase the wordings to make the issue statement clear, prioritizes the task, schedules the same and assigns it to a technician.
