Understanding the Work Order System
Public utilities’ biggest investment is the electric infrastructure assets including poles, wire, and transformers needed to deliver electricity. It’s a complex process to take raw materials, labor, and overheads and convert them to our organization’s largest asset. This workshop will provide an overall understanding of the work order system, how the investment gets paid for, and an exploration of numerous components within the work order system.
Who Should Attend:
Employees involved in any aspect of preparing and/or processing work orders for their electric utility, or employees outside the accounting area who want a better understanding of the work order process.
