PP-PM Capacity Planning View in CM25

Hi Gurus,

My Business case is :
If i have already planned the production orders for a month, and after that (knowing that the link between PM & PP is already established between Equipment PM & Work center PP) i planned in the same period some preventive maintenance orders (Released).

1) - Can i have a scheduling proposing from SAP for my PM orders that are scheduled in the same time ?

2) - Who has priority on the work center capacity ?

3) - How I can overcome conflicts without affecting the capacity ?

4) - If you have ideas that can help me to propose solutions improving the planning compliance, there are welcome ?

    Hi Karim

    When work centers are shared as resources between PP, PM, and PS, there will not normally be any prioritization of the capacity requirements.

    The Work Center = Equipment link is used if the work center is a machine. It makes visible if the work center is under maintenance by the help of system condition (work orders).

      Savas...for some reason I can't open the "Integration between PP module and PM module. I remember looking at this before and it was a great document with nice screen shots and easy to follow. How can I get access to it again?

    Hi Karim,

    Lets look at PP-PM integrated functionality:

    1.In the case of Integration between PP module and PM module author used PP work center Capacity for maintenance operation demand stuffing (author inserted PP WoC as Maint.WoC in the EQ, PP WoC have been copied in the Maintenance Work Order Header and Operations). In that case "maintain system condition as not in operation" don't have any sense. And in my opinion it isn't quite correct from business side of view.

    Operations (Production) and Maintenance it is two separate departments, with their own processes and work plans.

    Production Planner should see planned Maintenance activities, as a "marker" to communicate with Maintenance Planner and plans synchronization, but not as obligatory rule. For that purpose "maintain system condition as not in operation" and PP WoC in the Location data of Maintenance Orders and EQ's are used. Only with that scheduling data Production Planner will see Maintenance activities as "marker" and not as demand.

    2. When Production Planner will see Maintenance activities on the Planning Table, he should communicate with Maintenance to establish timeline for EQ shutdown.

    3. Maintenance planner can manually shift maintenance orders to the planned EQ shutdown dates, or can use Revisions and Maintenance Event Builder functionality for rough cut planning.

    P.S. Trust to what someone wrote, but always check
