Work Order Labor


Track planned and actual labor hours and labor costs against Work Orders.

Key Features

  • Labor rates are determined by the Craft assigned to Work Order Tasks.

  • Work Order Tasks without a Craft use the organization’s default Labor Rate defined in Custom Settings.

  • Track planned hours and compare to actual hours at both the Work Order and the Work Order Task level.

How It Works

  • Labor costs are calculated by multiplying hours worked on Work Order Tasks by the labor rate for the task.

  • FX EAM uses the proper multiplier for Overtime and Doubletime rates to calculate costs correctly.

  • Enter labor hours at the Work Task level; labor entries rolls up to the Work Order level.

    FX EAM does not generate any accounting detail for labor costs.

Step by Step

Add Planned Labor to a Work Order Task

  • Enter expected labor hours to the Planned Hrs field on each Work Order Task for a Work Order.

  • Planned Labor on a Work Order automatically calculates from the labor on the Work Order’s Work Order Tasks.
