My name is Edgar Mengelberg and I have been working with the Maximo and TPAE product suite in various Support roles for over 15 years.
Previously, when Actual Start / Actual Finish fields were auto-populated on Work Orders from the earliest / latest Actual Labor Start Time / End Time, only Actual Labor records with null Task fields were considered.
Now, a new property has been added, mxe.
But when mxe.
Because using labtrans records from the WO's tasks as well as the WO itself ,it caused a performance hit since it rolls all Wo and it's WO children up, therefore this this new property has been added: mxe.
If you are on aversion before base Services 7506, a manual change could also be made in the event the System Property mxe.
If the following Global Property is not yet added to your system, , Maximo/Base Services assumes that its value is 0.
To change this ,do as follows:
1) In the System Properties application, click New Row on the Global Properties table.
Property Name = mxe.
3) Set Global Value = 1 if you want a Work Order's Tasks' Labor Transactions to be considered during Actual Start / Finish Time calculation for that Work Order. Set Global Value = 0 otherwise.
