This two-day course focuses both on PLL configuration tasks and the creation of several different PLL cases from an end-user perspective. Training attendees will first perform required PLL Admin steps to populate case codes, case types, sub types, case templates, task results, and workflow setup. Then attendees will work through end-user workflows to understand the cause and effect of the entire process. This course will review several different case types to show a variety of uses in PLL. Best practices related to the creation of PLL workflows will also be presented. The PLL fee configuration process will be dissected so associated costs can accurately be tracked as part of the overall PLL case process. As the course training progresses, training topics will build upon each subsequent case with increased functionality and workflow flexibility. A large portion of the second day will focus on a practice and review whiteboard session. Training attendees will be able to ask specific questions and discuss potential outcomes of steps taken in the PLL workflows and then enter that case in PLL.

This training course focuses on working with and managing materials using Cityworks Storeroom. Attendees will learn what is necessary to develop a storeroom to track materials, costs, availability, stock on hand, physical locations in storerooms, suppliers, audits, transactions, etc. Costing analysis for work orders via LIFO/FIFO, weighted average, and other cost types, as well as setting up a cycle count program, will also be discussed. Attendees will explore how to create and track different storeroom suppliers and the materials they provide. Once Storeroom has been configured and populated, the training will focus on interacting with Storeroom and examining all the functionality this product has to offer as well as how Storeroom interacts with work orders and other parts of Cityworks.
Time will also be spent on running reports on material usage, availability, and transaction history. An inbox will be set up to track Storeroom transactions, and simple XML functions to change the Storeroom interface, such as hiding a data field or renaming a label, will be presented. Attendees will become aware of some of the Storeroom-specific database tables, which could impact reporting on topics such as material usage, quantity deficits, and current price points. There will be open discussion on identifying best practices and how they can be applied. Finally, attendees will also be exposed to new functionality, running Storeroom in Tablet, and seeing how barcode functionality can be utilized.
Training topics include:
