Selecting multiple parts in work order
« on: January 09, 2008, 09:06:18 am »
is it possible to select multiple parts/tools, when adding the parts/tools needed to the work order?
Adding parts one by one can be a very long process....

There are planned and actual parts/tools. Are you looking at planned or actual, or both?

The actual parts/tools would be impossible to add multiple entries since each would require qty and locations.

Planned parts/tools could be sped up by bypassing qty and note field and allow multi-selection. Would this work for you?

Maybe the solution to this is to support part kits.

I know about the solution of using the part inventory location to create a hierarchy, but as you can see, having a parent id hierachy would be very useful in such cases and well as in order cases (e.g., having a parent Electrical type or category which included various collections of inter-related parts (e.g., EMT connectors, Liquid-tight connectors, Water-tight connectors, etc. Most inventory systems use a custom numbering system based on hierarchies, allowing one to associate individual parts with parent subassemblies, and subassemblies with assemblies and assemblies with parent equipment.
