Skipping historic Maintenance plan call objects created by IP10 scheduling

Hi All,

I have a requirement to skip the historic calls that would be created as a result of IP10 scheduling process.

In my case, scheduling is performed on the basis of converted 'start of cycle' date on the maintenance plan.

Now this 'start of cycle' date can be in the past. We have created an LSMW to run IP10 transaction based on the converted 'start of cycle' date to perform initial scheduling.

Now in this process if the 'start of cycle' date is in the past then historic calls (Work orders) are created in the past.

Is there a way to skip this calls when executing IP10 using LSMW in background?

Regards,

Mayuresh

    I think, its not possible to skip the historical orders in IP10.

    Call objects are getting created based on the start date mentioned in IP10 scheduling.

      Hi Maheshwaran,

      I have noticed one more option which could be feasible in our scenario.

      We can create a program which used IP10 scheduling 'start of cycle' function.

      When we use this function we can either delete/skip the existing calls and specify the completion date and time and select which package to execute. Using this functionality also we would have calls in past since to match the call dates for different packages we have to populate the completion date in past, however in this process we can skip calls in past which are having status 'Save to call'.

      This ensures that the call dates are also correct and historic WOs will not get created.

      We will mostly probably use the 'Do not execute' for 'Set Deletion flag' option only after creating WOs, however just noticed that the above is also an option but it will need to create a new program and proper testing for mass maintenance plans.

      Would like to know your thoughts on the option?

      Thanks,

      Mayuresh
