If you are a project manager, then you might be thinking whether it is worth it to create a work order form. Whether it is at the beginning of every project, or whether you want to send them at the end, there will be some manpower involved to actually make these work orders. Well, the final decision would be up to you, at the end of the day, but I will discuss some of the advantages that a work order form can provide you, which may or may not help with your decision.
A lot of times, our details can get mixed up. Humans are not a perfect memory system, and relying on hearsay can look very bad on a person, a team, or the whole company. When a work order is created, it protects all the details of the work, like the materials used, the time span for the project, the cost of manufacturing, etc., which saves all the trouble, if both parties have a copy. And if there is any problem, it can be resolved earlier after pointing out, when the matter is still fresh.
Reminder of Payment
A work order’s sneaky byproduct is a reminder of payment. If you have not received the payment for your work, then you can send in a work order after your project is completed. This will carry all the details, including the amount due, which is a polite reminder for the paying party to settle their dues.
Terms And Conditions
A general work order format also contains all the terms and conditions, setting them in stone. This creates a strong barrier, holding any problems and conflicts between the manufacturing and the requesting party, to arise at the end of the completion.
