Exchange part – The new part which is installed in customer’s vehicle.
Used part – The defective old part which is taken back from the customer’s vehicle in replacement of the exchange part.

This defective old parts will be added automatically in the service job order as soon as the user enters the exchange part.
Here, system shows a popup asking, if the corresponding used part is to be added in the job order or not. If the user selects “Yes” the corresponding used part is automatically added in the job order.
