Valuation Code based maintenance plans

Hi experts,

We have a daily check of our Signaling system, where we check the LEDs (Green/Yellow/Amber) and based on that LED (if amber) a notification is to be created using maintenance plan.

A measuring point has been created for the LED status and Valuation code is assigned to it.

How can I use these valuation code so that to create a maintenance plan for triggering a Notification as soon as I enter Valuation code "Amber" for measuring point.

    Hi Vivek,

    Condition-Based Maintenance - Plant Maintenance (PM) - SAP Library

    Customer Exit IMRC0001 - Plant Maintenance (PM) - SAP Library

    You don't need to create a maintenance plan for it as its not a counter based maintenance but a condition based maintenance. You need to implement this exit. You will need help of your ABAP team for this.

    Once you implement this exit as per your requirement, on posting the measuring documents for the measuring point you have defined with the valuation code, Notifications can be triggered in the background.

    Hope it helps.

    Hello Vivek,

    Saurabh is right. The answer is user-exit IMRC0001. I have used this exit to trigger Notification when

    • The Measurement reading is outside the specified Range.
    • The Measurement Counter reading cosses a particular value.
    • The measurement Valuation code reads a specified Code (in your case it is Amber)

    So, it is ABAPer's job and can be easily done. Regarding the involvement of Maintenance plan, it is redundant, because the required Notification is directly being created . In case you are talking about triggering a Notification through an existing maintenance plan, that too can be explored. But the bottmline is the answer to your query is user-exit IMRC0001.

    If you have got any further queries, please ask.

      Hi Vivek,

      There are 2 aspects to your query. First is the daily inspection of LEDs. Second is the creation of a Notification based on the condition of the LED(Condition based Maintenance).

      As I explained earlier, you will not be able to link your Measuring point to your Plan if its "NOT" a counter. And that makes sense, because for condition based maintenance, why would you need a plan as its not a cyclic thing.

      If you really want to use Maintenance Plans for Inspection only, I think may be you can use a functionality of "Inspection Rounds" if this business function is activated in your system.

      1. You can create an inspection task list for LEDs and assign the measuring point based on valuation code to the operation of task list as a PRT.

      Inspection Rounds - SAP Library

      2. Create a plan with daily cycle using this task list and schedule the plan.

      3. The plan will generate Inspection Orders on daily basis.

      4. The Inspecting person will inspect the LEDs and then confirm the Operation(IW41/IW44). Here while confirming, he can post measuring documents for the measuring point that was assigned in the task list operation.

      5. If your customer exit is configured, that should generate a notification for maintenance of the signaling system.

      But if you want to go the simple way without using a maintenance plan for inspection only, you can straight away go for posting measuring documents against the measuring point and generating notification.

      I hope it helps.
