Where configured and allowed for the user, they can create a 'field order'. This is a simple order designed to allow personnel in the field to record work for which they are qualified, authorised and able to perform. The ability to create a Field Order exists in the Functional Location and Equipment lower right menu options, from the Notification screen and from various locations on map item screens.
Business and SAP Context
Some SAP installations are configured to require a Notification for Work Orders of certain types. If this is a requirement then users should create a Notification first and create a Work Order from it.
Note that the administrators can control whether only the Assembly materials are shown or all materials on device are shown via the Assembly Switch in the Technical Objects section of Maintain Core Settings - Settings Tab
