- Technician will correct and fix the problem, in the meanwhile, SAP operator will maintain the information in Order accordingly.
- In the end, SAP operator will do the TECO and close for the Order when the accident is solved.
2. Maintenance Processing
There are two approaches to process maintenance – Order and Notification. They can be used independently of one another.
