Functional Location Permits

This tab shows the SAP work permits applicable to the Functional Location. This functionality was introduced in BlueWorx SP7 and can be enabled/ disabled through BlueWorx administration setting. 

If the Functional Location has permits then:

  • Notification Creation 
    • A warning will be given if the Permit is Category A (Work Approval)
  • Field Order Creation 
    • A warning will be given if the Permit is Category A (Work Approval) and Order Release Type 1 (Warning) 
    • The user will be prohibited from creating a Field Order is the Permit is Category A (Work Approval) and Order Release Type 2 (Error) 

Safety-First Approach

In the interests of safety, we do not make any distinction with Order Release Type 2 and the Proposal check On/ Off. That level of control is suited for work planning in SAP. In BlueWorx, any OR Release Type 2 value (as illustrated below for an  Equipment record but is the same for FL) will prohibit the creation of a Field Work Order.
