This is an introduction to Plant Maintenance tiles in S/4 version 1909.
- Maintenance request
- Work Order
- Technical Object
- Asset Viewer
Many PM/EAM apps came from Web Dynpro ABAP (WDA app) that was used in WEBUI or PLMUI applications. FIORI calls these apps.
There are two major PM roles.
Add these roles to your id in GUI to see the FIORI tiles.
Monitor Maintenance requests
This is a list of notifications like IW29. You can add more filters to restrict notifications further.
Use + to create a new maintenance request.
This functionality is same as request maintenance tile. ECC equivalent is IW21.
Requiest maintenance is very simplified compared to IW21.
You can add a link and an attachment in FIORI which are nice features.
From the list you can display a single notification.
This is a powerful tool.
With share, you can send an email.
Or save notification as a new tile.
This creates a new tile. Congratulations if this your first. I can imagine someone creating hundreds of tiles with this tool!
Create Maintenance Order
This brings up familiar IW31 transaction.
In the URL in the end, you will find sap-language=EN#MaintenanceOrder-create?sap-ui-tech-hint=WDA
Semantic Object – Maintenance Order
Create – Action
Intent = Semantic Object + Create
You can use t-codes like /UI2/FLIA to analyze issues with the tiles, find the right catalog, role.
Under person, click on i About, you will find FIORI app number.
This is not a FIORI app since there is no FIORI App id. It is Web Dynpro ABAP (WDA) app.
Monitor Maintenance we looked at earlier is a real FIORI app. The App ID is F1511.
Fiori Apps Library
With App ID it is easy to search details of tile.
Go to FIORI library and search for F1511.
You will find more information about the app, UI5 application, OData service and business role..
UI5 application should be activated using SICF.
OData service should be activated via /UI2/MAINT_SERVICE.
Find Maintenance Orders
Enter parameters to filter work orders and hit GO.
Maintenance orders are found. Click on one.
Again the way to read is from top to bottom unlike navigating in the horizontally with tabs in ECC.
Scroll to Technical Object.
You will see a menu as below.
There are no separate equipment and Functional Location (FLOC) apps. They are merged into technical object.
When you click on technical object, list is very cleverly organized to include notifications, work orders and maintenance items. Also in <Related Apps> you can branch further to many other related apps.
There are many related apps you can navigate to.
Change technical object
This takes you to familiar IE02.
Technical Object Links
Using more links in the list there are further navigation possibilities.
You can jump to this tile from technical object. This shows you the whole structure with all the information on the tech object. Another well laid out FIORI app. This a truly innovative app that simplifies the need to look up orders, notifications, maintenance items, etc.
This is laid out very similar to equipment technical object.
After notification is entered, breakdown flag is available. To record damages, multiple codes, can be input.
Order and Notification App
Here notification and orders are shown. The Personal object worklist (POWL) in this app originated in WebUI.
Notice SM01 order. Service Orders are listed in the same app just like ECC. However there are no separate apps for service and maintenance notifications.
This is another innovative FIORI app which displays master data.
Maintenance Order Links
Another innovation in FIORI is ability to link to different related objects. This saves time in navigating to a different object. Data is copied from one app to another.
Find and Manage apps are available for many PM apps. They are true FIORI apps.
Breakdown Analysis – Analytics Apps
Damage code analysis
This is another Analytics App
