Pinned topic Generating PM work orders
From the list tab where I have all PM records displayed, I drop down the 'Select Action' menu and select 'Generate Work Orders'. After I press OK in the next window, where it states this will effect all records, Maximo seems to be generating the work orders but no work orders are created in 'Work Order Tracking'. I do not get an error message of any sort.
Ultimately we would like to use Cron Task to fully automate this process and have Maximo generate all work orders for the upcoming work week every Friday, but we're having this initial problem. Any advise on what to do or check for? Thanks.

for the first i would like to say sorry cause my english is not good but i hope what i'm telling you can help u.
if you manually generate wo from pm using select action > generate work orders, don't check the use frequency criteria option.
some case.... if you uncheck use frequency criteria and then click ok... the maximo will show you the dialog box that PM-XXX created work order... but when you find in work order tracking application there is no record related to the PM's... if you facing this problem, i want you to connect to the maximo database and pointing to pmancestor table. verified that your pm number is listed to that table... if the pmnum is not exists try to insert the pmnum manually after that please generate the work order from pm...
tell me if this work or not (but i hope this work ^_^)
