FAMIS Security

FAMIS security is set up according to roles.  Access and functionality of a form depends on the role that the user is assigned to.  For example, someone with the Customer Service - Work Cntrl role can create work orders, whereas someone with the Crew Supervisor role and only view and change the status of a work order. 

It is a standard security measure that a user have the minimum security needed in order to perform their job function.  For more information regarding FAMIS Access, visit  "Getting Access to FAMIS".
