Maintenance Activity Type
Registered Member I agree with David on the fact that Activity codes listed by Alireza should be used in the notification's activity table and should be set according to the catalog profile(equipment class) linked with the equipment. MATs does not seem to have a strict purpose in SAP. And once you figured out notification's activity codes are more usefull in reports, well, I don't really see any other purpose than to segregate orders just like David's team has done. ISO 14224 in my opinion, does not have any... [ more ]
Registered Member Hello Alireza, My understanding is that the SAP Maintenance Activity Type in the work order header would refer to the broader categories of Corrective Maintenance, Preventive Maintenance etc. The activities you have listed would be used in the SAP notification activity fields when recording the more detailed record of work performed. Regards, David [ more ]
Registered Member Hello I want refer to ISO 14224-2016 Table B.5 — Maintenance activity Maintenance activity for Corrective Maintenance: Repair Replace Overhaul Modify Refit Adjust Check Combination Other Maintenance activity for Preventive Maintenance: Repair Overhaul Modify Refit Service Adjust Test Inspection Combination Other Kind regards. Alireza [ more ]

Breakdown recording/tracking
Registered Member Hi MAPMAINTENANCE, We use SAP's IW21 with a malfunction report config (M2) on a custom notification type N1. Equipment's are defined with equipment class allowing simple coding of failures through catalog profiles. It also allows for recording of who reported the breakdown, how long did it take to repair (good for MTTR stats) and it creates automatically a ZBRK work order type that is released automatically. This way the techs can add parts to the work order to build a picklist and then use... [ more ]
Registered Member Do you mean you tick the breakdown field in the notification? To record who does what, do you use operations in the work order? If the report is not done by the person who did the job, I think it is possible to enter the craftman name in the operations, isn't it? Otherwise, enter it in the longtext ine the operations as an interim measure. Anyway, don't you have technical support from SAP Plant Maintenance for solving technical enqueries like this one?

Opportunity based PM
Registered Member Hi, could you please send me sap maintenance training material, my email is mnewiraq2000@gmail.com [ more ]
Registered Member It appears to me that your production planners have it backwards. Maintenance based on condition monitoring needs to be the lead for production planning. If that can't be done because of the specifics of production (i.e. shut down takes the whole production out) than you need to have to create very fine-tuned PM procedures defined with all resources needed and a realistic time table. Place that within the SAP system in such a way, that whenever a shut-down for a specific part of the system... [ more ]

Measuring Point Work Order
Registered Member Hi, could you please send me sap training material, my email is mnewiraq2000@gmail.com [ more ]
Registered Member I think yes but your CMMS has to be connected to your DCS in which you also set the low low and high high setpoints. At the moment, will your operators doing their daily walkarounds record and raise any work order for these kinds of process parameter deviations? [ more ]
Registered Member As an example - we have a pressure regulator that we have set at 100psi, and we want it controlled to 5 psi plus/minus. You can set up a measuring point with a high limit of 105 and a low limit of 95. The measurements that you record can go up and down. But, if you record a measurement above 105, or below 95, you get a warning message in SAP. My question is - deos SAP have a process to automatically issue a Work order, based on that warning.

how to use system availability Tab in notification ?
Registered Member Hi, Can you send me the transaction you use to look that screen? I didn't look it before. [ more ]
Registered Member Well, if you wish to try, first build up your block diagram, calculate each equipment/device availability, calculate each system availability and then totalize the plant availability based on parallel and in series formula. [ more ]
Registered Member yes. i use breakdown field. i have read SAP PM Book and they haven't said anything about this tab and i also can't find PM expert . so i ask on this webboard ,and still hope getting answer. [ more ]

Duplicate Description for Characteristic (CT04)
Registered Member By ICT are you referring to change management? [ more ]
Registered Member Thanks - I did find that post, also tried to no no avail - thanks for the input. [ more ]
Registered Member It makes sense that SAP would do this as it will only confuse the person entering the data or trying to report on the data. There is one post on the web which discusses options here where they talk about changing the language for one of the entries but I could not get this to work. To see this post search for the error number ie. "SAP C1223". I would suggest just adding a neutral character like an underscore to one of the descriptions so that they are different. [ more ]

Registered Member In order to enable dynamic or continuous improvement of PMs in CMMS (either prepared based on OEM manual, experience or RCM), some standard reliability analyses would need to be carried out using some data from CMMS.

GIRTH GEAR PROBLEM
Registered Member I assume by the choice of wording this is a new installation? Please confirm if that is the case. The bolting together of the segments of the typical girth gear requires some precautions simply because of the shock that gets transmitted to the bolted connection while in operation. When the girth gear is assembled there should be liberal use of something like Locktite brand aneorobic thread locker, preferably a high strength version. Usually Allen head cap screws are recommended for bolting... [ more ]

Job efficiency report
Registered Member if you are just comparing actual work against planned work for operations then use IW37N or IW37. [ more ]

How does SAP intend for you to flag different PM's for tracking?
Registered Member My reply is embedded below: " How do you code the maintenance type in SAP for backlog work orders for breakdown jobs? - First, have you specified what equipment are meant for intentional breakdown or run to failure (RTF)? There was an interesting discussion to our maintenance team on how to use the correct maintenance type code for WO's, i.e, PM01, 02...

How to code backlog jobs for breakdowns?
Registered Member So Vinman, what decision have you taken after reading the comments here? [ more ]
Registered Member I couldn't agree more. [ more ]
Registered Member It doesn't matter if the job is done immediately or put into backlog, planned or not. If the job is recogniced after fault it is corrective/reactive and should be coded accordingly. Then coding is correct and helps managers to see how much "fire fighting" is done. [ more ]

Automatic corrective Maintenance creation during teco of PM
Registered Member In addition, some parts of equipment cannot be externally painted when already installed eg bottom parts of motors or pumps once installed because there is not enough space between the bottom parts of the equipment with their baseplate. [ more ]
Registered Member Besides, a proper PM with required materials or spare part list will catch or remind that the right color paint is NOT available at the store. So, reordering it has to be triggered in advance during PM kitting if the PM is triggered every quarter or even every month. [ more ]
Registered Member I did not suggest to split the PM tasks permanently because with the right color paint available, the third task can be done. In fact, I did think about the splitting the PM if the tasks are too big and need longer time to do eg over 1 shift. That was why I ask for examples of the PM and whether time given sufficient or not. The example PM given was for what equipment? [ more ]

Plan Start Date in SAP
Registered Member You could achieve what you want by manually changing the Scheduling Type in the dates section of the order header. The options available are: Backwards - Basic finish date is fixed Current Date Forwards - Basic start date is fixed No Scheduling - Both Basic Start and Basic Finish are fixed Also look at SET SCHEDULING PARAMETERS customising function where you can find an option which allows you to prevent adjustment of the basic dates by scheduling. You can set thjis by plant and order type. [ more ]

List of material to be ordered for "one" job...
Registered Member I agree. Sometimes parts ordered are not always parts used in the job. We think that we'd like to be able to easily see specific costs to repair or construct jobs. I'll try to format a spreadsheet that'll import. Thanks again, shand [ more ]
Registered Member Well, ask the ICT engineer in charge of SAP PM program. I think it is possible once they do the right field to field mapping. I don't like the idea of entering a liner for multiple materials even non-core materials. It should be itemized. [ more ]
Registered Member Hi Josh, No, this is for non-store stock items that are not part of the SAP BOM. One solution that I've heard is to enter one line with the total cost, and attach the quote that details the individual item costs. I guess what I'm wondering is; if I develop a standard spreadsheet that can be sent to my planner, listing all the parts needed for the job, can that then be imported into the requisition? Thanks again, shand [ more ]

How to correctly charge W/O for a rebuilt part?
Registered Member Wild Willy, Long term I agree you will find the Refurbishment Order the way to go but this can take some time to implement. It will probably change the way stores stock is valued and to do this often requires some discussions with bean counters and managers so as all understand and are prepared for the effects of the probable revaluation of stocks. In the short term as I stated before all you need to do is ensure the account assignment on the purchase requisitions/orders for the repairs are... [ more ]
Registered Member Actually, it looks like the PM04 referbishment order may be the right way for us to go. After doing the homework, this method has the features built in that we need. Thanks to everyone for all the help. [ more ]
Registered Member David, That is what we are doing up to the point where we receive the repaired item back.

sub work order vs operations conflict
Registered Member I am not sure I exactly understand your link between Maximo and SAP but fields you could look at utilising for SAP operations would be the Control Key and the Activity Type. The drawback of the Control Key for you may be that once a confirmation has been entered against an operation it cannot be changed (although this maybe an advantage). The disadvantage of Activity Type is that those entering confirmations can override the setting in the work order operation. I would start by looking at... [ more ]
Registered Member The cost of all the sub work orders can be accumulated to the main work order and then you can use main work orders for the costing and the sub work orders for schedule and reactive work orders. Regards, Tehsin [ more ]
