Many companies manage objects which, whilst being technically the same, may have different condition statuses (for example new, used, defective). The technical objects need to be refurbished, which means that, as a result of maintenance work, one or more technical objects are to be transformed from one status (for example, j3=defective) to another (for example j2=refurbished). The items that need to be refurbished (defective parts)are withdrawn from the j3 batch of the material stock. The refurbished parts are returned to the j2 batch of the material stock.
Where: j2 & j3 are pieces of equipment –Just in case =)
The items that need to be refurbished (defective parts)are withdrawn from the C3 batch of the material stock. The refurbished parts are returned to the C2 batch of the material stock.
The value of the material is changed by this refurbishment process.
In SAP-Plant Maintenance, we can use or implement it as such, depending on the business requirement.
For instance,you commission a work center to repair a certain number of defective/worn repairable spares by a specific date.
■ The refurbishment order is suitable for non-customer-specific stock-based refurbishment.
■ The refurbishment order is a specific type of maintenance order which is used for the refurbishment of repairable spares and for which a special order type must be identified.
■ The order can relate to the following types of repairable spares:
- one or more individual repairable spares (combination of material and serial number, for which an equipment master record may have been created)
- one or more non-individual repairable spares (material)
■ The repairable spares planned in the order are transferred from a common starting status to a common final status. These statuses are distinguishable via batches or various valuation types. A from-status and to-status are specified in the order: The from-status (for example j3=defective part) and the to-status (for example j2=refurbished part) describe the refurbishment process.
