In Autodesk Prodsmart you can create ‘Recurring Maintenance Orders’, derived from your preventive ‘Maintenance Orders’.

Using an existing preventive ‘Maintenance Order’ as a template, you can create a recurrency that will open up a new ‘Maintenance Order’ with a frequency defined by you.

To start this, first create a preventive ‘Maintenance Order’ for which you want to create a recurrency for.
After this :

1 - Go to ‘Maintenance’

2 - Press ‘Recurring Orders’

3 - Press ‘+Add Recurring Order’

A new screen will appear where you can define the recurrency that you want to create :

The rules to filling this information are the following:

- Code : Code for the ‘Recurring Order’.

- Start Date : Date in which you want the recurrency to start.

- Stop recurrency on : This field is not mandatory, but in it you can define a date to stop the recurrency (no new orders will be created from the recurrency after this date).

- Frequency : Defines the frequency at which you want new orders to be created from the recurrency, it can be defined in Days, Weeks or Months. After defining it, the system will tell you when the next date for recurrency is.

- Order Template : Defines which preventive ‘Maintenance Order’ you wish the recurrency to replicate. All fields of the original ‘Maintenance Order’ will be replicated by the recurrency.

The orders created by the recurrency can be identified by having the same code of the original

‘Maintenance Order’ with the date in which they are scheduled attached to their code.

You can consult the ‘Recurring Orders’ menu to get an overview of the ‘Recurring Orders’ that you have created, seeing their start date, end date, next date, frequency and the order template being cloned.

It is also possible to edit these orders to change details about them if needed.
