Simplified Tracking of preventive maintenance activities
Have you faced challenge to find out how many preventive maintenance orders are not completed as per planned date? Or what is the status of various calls that were released last week?
Display list of maintenance orders or operations (IW38/IW37N) are main reports that most maintenance planners would use to identify backlog, status of each order, priority of orders, etc. Though IW38/IW37N are great reports to perform most of the planning decisions, it missed some of the important information about orders created from preventive maintenance plans.
SAP has recently release new set of notes that enable visibility of call number, call date, call status, planned date and completion date of the maintenance orders created from preventive maintenance plans.
These features are enabled for SAP ERP EhP6 till latest release of S/4HANA. Please refer following notes to get additional information. To enable this functionality, you may need business function LOG_EAM_CI_8 and switch EAM_SFWS_CC4_ORDLIST_CALLDATES.
- 2438519 – [CC4] D10495 – Order Schedule GUI – IW38, IW37N, IW32
- 2438859 – [CC4] D10495 – Order Schedule WD – POWL
- 2478262 – EAM CC4 D10156 – Order Schedule in Web Dynpro
Once you implement these notes, you are able to view additional attributes in setting option for ALV report (Refer Figure 1.)
