PM Fleet Objects and Configuration Process
What is Fleet Objects in SAP PM ?
In SAP System commercial vehicles, buses, trains, trucks, loading vehicles (pay loader, excavator, dump trucks) cranes, machinery, ships, airplanes and helicopters and so on treated as a Fleet Object and maintain by Fleet Management System.
Fleet objects are similar as an Equipment with vehicle-specific additional data, which is displayed in the system on two additional tab pages. Here you can specify important fleet data such as the license plate number, load volume, consumption data, fuel card number, engine data, or fuel type and so on directly in the equipment master record.
We can use the fleet object as a reference object for Maintenance Notification, Maintenance Order or Service Tasks.We can also perform maintenance planning date of the next scheduled service dependent on the distance counter (for example, the odometer), the time counter (for example, the time meter), or any other fleet counter.
