Work Orders on Cummins INSITE Software (CUMMINS Engines)
#Work Orders – About
Work Orders are used to record and view information about the ECM history enabling technicians to reference previous ECM settings. Work Orders contain one or more images that contain a snapshot of all INSITE™ accessible data.
The Work Orders window is used to manage Work Orders, Images and Templates. The Work Order window has an upper and lower section. The upper section shows Work Orders and summary information. The lower section shows Templates.
Select Work Orders from the Viewbar (refer to Figure 1.1 above) to open the Work Orders window. When connected to an ECM or Simulator, INSITE™ will only display the work orders and images associated with that specific Engine Serial Number and it will only show Templates for that ECM type. If not connected, all Work Orders and Templates will be displayed.
Work Orders are initially sorted by the Last Modified Date, with the most recent Work Orders at the top. The list may be resorted by the values in any of the columns. To resort either list, click on the column header. The table will be resorted based on the selected column in ascending order. Click on the column header again to resort the table again in descending order. Columns may be moved by selecting the column header and dragging it to the desired location.
INSITE™ can be configured to automatically start the Work Order creation process when connecting to an ECM or Simulator by enabling the Work Order Mode. Work Order Mode will also start the image creation process before disconnecting from an ECM or Simulator. The Work Order creation will be started automatically but it can be cancelled if Work Order is not desired. Perform the following steps to enable or disable Work Order Mode:
a). Select Tools > Options from the Menu Bar.
b). When the Options window appears, select Work Orders from the left side of the screen.
c). When the Work Order screen is displayed, select or deselect the Enable Work Order Mode check box as desired.
d). Enter a Service Site Location.
e). Select OK to close the window.
