Make Maintenance Plan day wise

Dear Gurus ,

We have a typical requirement.

The user want to create  maintenance plans and want that notification should be created on particular days i.e. every first Tuesday .

Or we can say that scheduling should be done based on days of the month.

This requirement is for few equipment s.

Kindly suggest how it is to be configured in the system.

    Hello Himanshu,

    • First thing comes to mind during such queries (Every First Friday)  is a Factory Calendar. Make it as per your need and use this in these plans. See this link to know how the Factory calendar is used in scheduling: Scheduling a background job using factory calendar
    • Secondly, such requirements often trigger the idea of user-exit IPRM002 where we can write our conditions for generating a call.
    • Last but not the least, Sebastian has always shown solutions using different packages like explained in these links:

            Scheduling plan - Every two months, the third Friday


    Search Google for more, I think they are available mostly answered by Sebastian, through Packages as I remembered.

    Hi Himanshu,

    You need to use maintenance plan category only for Notification.

    Create a Single Cycle Plan, with cycle / unit -7 days.

    On scheduling you need to set the start day when you want to start like Tuesday, similarly system will schedule the calls every week based on the scheduling period you have chosen (6mon,1 year etc)

    For Multiple Equipment, if you want to have the Notification generated, then you create maintenance items.

    If you want to include in one order, then in the maintenance item you assign the object list.
