RE: [Newsletter] Re: [MAXIMO List] Displaying PO Costs on the workorder

From: Brian Swanson (2019-04-03 11:42)

With help from a friend, I created an automation script that rolls up the cost to two added fields on the workorder. From there I added a database view that will display all the costs, including those not on workorders. We needed the view as that is how we are getting data into the Qlik analytics program we are using. The only catch with the view is I’m only going 3 levels deep with the workorder parent-child, but so far that is enough for us.

If I had the Maximo java source code, I could most likely create a custom class file to duplicate what the Maximo application is doing, but I don’t.
