Apply a PO Against a Maintenance Project


There is no difference between a Purchase Order that is applied against a Maintenance Project Work Order and any other type of Work Order.  The impact the PO has on the Maintenance Project costs is documented here.



All Purchase orders should arrive in AiM via a loading process or an integration with KFS.  While those remain in development, POs can be added manually to AiM to track costs against projects.
