Object Information key for Technical Object

Hi Experts,

I have assigned Object Information key to Order types and Notification type with out assigning to technical object. Still I got Object Information popup details when the threshold vale reached.

Could you please explain me why we assign "Object Information Key" to Equipment and Functional Locations.

What is the benefit on that assignment.

Thank you.

    This gives you the statistics of Maintenance activities such as Breakdown Notifications Orders etc, when you attempt to create a Notification/Order on a particular technical object (Equipment/FLocn). i.e., Suppose you are creating a Notification > As soon as you enter the Equipment and press Enter a pop-up appears infront of you giving the above statistics. Also drill-downs are possible from these figures in the pop-up. If this information window is not useful to you then you can de-assign this from spro settings, which you already knew.

    An object information key can be assigned to the following object types:

    • functional location categories

    • equipment categories

    • maintenance and service notification types

    • maintenance and service order types

    Via the parameterization of the object information key, you determine the

    data of a technical object (equipment, functional location, structure) that is

    shown in a special information window.

    The object information also contains history data from the PM Information

    System and data from the notifications and orders executed.

    You can use the parameterization of the object information to define whether

    the notification and order information should be displayed:

    • for a technical object,

    • for the higher-level object, or

    • for the entire structure.

    Furthermore, you can determine whether the object information should be


    • using a pushbutton or

    • automatically when object information is selected for the object

    To activate the display depending on notification and order data, you can
    define threshold values which are used to select historical data through the PM
    Information System. When one of the threshold values is reached, the object
    information is displayed and is indicated with this symbol in the object information mask.
