Production Resource Tool Integration with PM & PP
Production Resource Tools (PRT):
- To perform certain operations in a Production/Maintenance order, the worker responsible for performing the task requires resources. In the SAP System, these resources are given the term production resources/tools.
- PRT is a moveable (not stationary) operating resource that is used in production or plant maintenance and can be used repeatedly. For example portable drilling machine, spanner, cutting tool, drill bit, electrodes, drawings, CNC programs, Vernier caliper, etc.
You can create PRT with the following types:
- MATERIAL PRT
- MISCELLANEOUS PRT
- DOCUMENT PRT=
- EQUIPMENT PRT
In a manufacturing industry, we keep using various tools during productions and these tools require maintenance to keep them usable. Maintenance of such tools normally depends on their usage in the production operation. These tools can be considered as Production Resource Tools in SAP and can be integrated with Plant Maintenance to trigger a maintenance activity based on the usage confirmation on production order.
This blog post will discuss how to set this process in SAP to integration PRT used in production with plant maintenance.
1.1….. Create equipment with category P (PRT) – TCODE IE25
1.2….. Create characteristics with UOM similar to production unit. – TCODE CT04
1.3….. Creating measuring point as a counter for that equipment. – TCODE IK01
1.4….. Create measurement document for initial reading to activate. – TCODE IK11
1.5….. Create maintenance task list. – TCODE IA05
1.6….. Create maintenance plan. – TCODE IP01/IP41
1.7….. Attaching a measuring counter to PRT Equipment. – TCODE IE02
1.8….. Change routing and assign PRT equipment to operation. – TCODE CA02
1.9….. Create production order. – TCODE CO01
1.10… Confirmation of production order. – TCODE CO15
1.11… Check the measurement document – TCODE IK13/IK17
1.12… Run deadline monitoring for the maintenance plan. – TCODE IP30
1.13… Check the list of open orders against PRT. – TCODE IW38
So, we have learned about setting up the integration of Production Resources Tools usage in manufacturing to trigger a maintenance event in plant maintenance.
