WEBINAR - Work Orders

June 9, 2020 (T 9-3pm)

This 1-day webinar is for all operations and related field staff who do or oversee any aspect of construction, retirement, and maintenance of your distribution system.  This webinar details the components and requirements of a work order and the purpose and outcome of the overall work order process.  We will follow the life of a work order from opening to close and correlate the jobs that employees and contractors do within the process. 


Participants will gain an understanding of system maintenance versus system improvements and retirements, but more importantly why the understanding of expenses and assets is important to every employee of the cooperative. We will discuss what it means to properly complete a service order and a work order.   


By the end of the webinar, participants will understand the impact of the work they do on financial statements and ultimately to member rates.


Key topics


       From the warehouse to the paperwork, where is the inventory going and how will the members pay for the work completed?

       Inventory, Assembly Units, Asset/Continuing Property Record (CPR) – what do I need to know?

       Inventory and warehouse materials, truck inventory, charge outs, returns, salvage

       Capitalize or expense – doesn’t the office take care of those decisions?

       Special equipment – How to determine installation or maintenance. 

       Time entry/timesheet - Getting it right in payroll.   

       Best practices when storms roll in.

Together, we will step through this intricate process to understand the various components needed to have a reliable distribution system.  You will leave this webinar with a new view of how the work that you do impacts others at your cooperative and your member-owners.
