Multiple Lines for a Service or Repair Item in a Requisition/PO

Multiple lines of a service or repair item can be added to a requisition or purchase order in Calem release R2023a available in March 2023.

  • For service item, each additional REQ or PO line of the same item needs to have a different cost center.
  • For repair item, each additional REQ or PO line of the same item needs to have a different repair WO. In the case an asset is repaired, a different asset is required.

 1. Service Lines

Here are the steps to add multiple service lines for the same service item in a REQ or PO.

  • Create a new REQ line
  • Select an item of category service to add a line.
  • Edit the line to set a cost center before adding a line of the same service item.
  • Repeat the process to add additional lines for the same service.
  • The same process applies to PO lines.
