  • To reach the Requested Parts List, navigate to InventoryRequested Parts in the left side menu.

Introduction

When a Mechanic is completing a Work Order for an Asset in need of servicing, they may discover that they do not have all of the Parts they need to complete the repair. When this happens, the Mechanic can use Texada Mobile to request additional Parts; see “Add a Part to a Work Order in Texada Mobile” for more information.

Submitting a request for Parts in this manner has two effects in the system. First, an email is sent to the purchasing agent of the Mechanic’s division to notify them of the request (purchasing agents are appointed from the Divisional Logistics Settings screen in Texada SRM; see “Divisional Logistics Settings” for more information). Second, the request is logged in the Requested Parts List screen in Texada Web.

As its name implies, the Requested Parts List screen contains a list of all the Parts that have been requested through Texada Mobile. From this screen, dispatchers can review pending requests and notify Mechanics when a request has been fulfilled.

To reach the Requested Parts List, navigate to InventoryRequested Parts in the left side menu.
