Spare Parts Category is an open field that allows Administrators to categorize parts in any fashion they choose. Some companies choose to categorize spare parts by mechanical properties such as Bearing, Belts, etc., while others choose to categorize parts by product type or value streams.
Note: When and where parts are consumed along with the reason for the consumption (reactive, PM, etc.) will be determined in the consumption category fields, not here.
Adding a Part Category is simple:
1. In the Main Menu, select Spares
2. Choose 'Part Categories'
3. Select 'Add New'
4. Add the 'Description', 'Code' and choose if this will be the default category.
5. Click 'Save'
*Remember, you need sufficient access in the Spares Module to set up a Spare Parts Category and to edit existing Categories. Your local Site L2L Champions can help with this as well.
