So this is not something that is setup OOB for Maximo but will be extremely useful if you are using failure codes (Problem/Cause/Remedy). Problem already exists OOB in Maximo but for some reason cause/remedy where not. Follow the steps in the link above to implement this into your system.
To summarize what needs to happen
- You will be creating two new relationships on the workorder table. That will link back to failurereport table. One for Cause and one for Remedy.
- You will create two new lookups in the lookups.xml for your system that will be used in your advanced search dialog (searchmore)
- You will update your application wotrack or plusgwo (or your equivalent industry solution module) advanced search dialog to use the new relationship and lookup.
It’s a fairly simple change and you shouldn’t need to take the server down or move it into admin mode. Remember follow your change management rules.
