FAQ

Please provide some of the VMUtil specific nomenclature and names

We use a number of "terms" in both the VMUtil™ Website and Mobile App that may be unique to VMUtil™ workflow

  1. Purchase Order
    • A purchase Order in VMUtil™ terms is a combination value, comprised of a FirstEnergy PO Number, a Work Area, an Operating Company and a Contractor.
  2. Work Order
    • A Work Order in the case of VMUtil™ is actually a Corridor Name which is uniquely assigned to a Contractor. The same Corridor can be assigned to multiple contractors, which is why we allow the Work Order Name to be altered if desired.
  3. Job Name
    • A job is a Work Order, that has been assigned uniquely to a Crew. Another alternate name for this feature could be a Site. By default it will always be given the corridor name, but because multiple different crews can be assigned the same Work Order, the Job Name can be assigned uniquely.
  4. MUA
    • MUA simply means Minimum Unit of Application. In terms of FirstEnergy, this is always a Span. However, because VMUtil™ can be used to record any unit of measurement, it is completely variable.
  5. PUM
    • PUM Is a Project Unit of Measurement. This can be assigned any value that a client decides. In the case of FirstEnergy, this is always a Corridor.
  6. PSUM
    • PSUM is a Project Sub-Unit of Measurement. Again, this can be assigned any desired value, but in the case of FirstEnergy will always be the Nearest street to the Span.
