FEATURES OF A MAINTENANCE ORDER

ImageIn SAP Plant Maintenance, the features of a Maintenance Orders are the following:

  • Flexible order processing

Ideally, the maintenance order must be capable of being opened with a minimum data entry (for example, in the case of a malfunction).  On the other hand, there are some business processes in Maintenance, such as revisions, transfers or new constructions, for which the maintenance order should provide a wide range of functionality – working with external companies, network configuration, permit processes, cost statements, material reservations and others.

  •  Object Reference:

The Maintenance order either refers to one specific object or to a group of any number of objects which can be displayed in an object list in the maintenance order.

  • Period of Validity

An individual order is valid for a specific piece of maintenance work only.  In the case of standing order, however, you do not create a new order every time a new piece of work needs to be done.  The standing order is valid for a certain period of time.  It is created to cover minor repairs, and all times and materials are posted to it.

  •  Execution

Maintenance orders are performed by internal company employees or are outsourced to external companies.
