Keep your Plant Maintenance Master Data in synch


as within Plant Maintenance we got quite a lot of dependent master data normally the organization is facing challenges with keeping data in synch

the picture below is depicting a typical situation


within the Customer Connect Initiative we have developed a sophisticated and flexible solution which will allow you to automate / semi automate  this process to the needs of tan organization.


the solution is flexible using different tools set like workflow as well as BRF+ to allow the organization to define flexible rules like (just examples) :

  • Maintenance plan deactivation for object type “safety valves” will always be processed via User Decisions
  • Maintenance plans deactivation for object type “car” will be always deactivated automatically without user interaction

this solution will be also available in EHP8 SP09 and EHP7 SP15.


More details you find in Innovation Discovery Her you will find

  • documentation
  • screen shots to get a glimpse of idea how the solution looks like
  • a brief pdf explaining the basics

As well an extensive How to Guide is available which helps you with concrete examples and how to implement this in your organization.

This solution will help you to get more efficient in handling your master data.

      Thanks for the information.

      As a standard package, would the workflow work by just activating the check box in configuration or do we need to perform some steps in  BRF which are obligatory?. We tried to test in our sandbox and  after deactivating the technical object we do get a message in our inbox as " Technical object deactivated" but subsequent maintenance plans/notifications don't get deactivated automatically.

      there is quite some stuff to do see How to Guide .

      This is not just one flag as this is very customer specific due to its nature.
