    I recommend searching

    I searched and found these threads:

    "An equipment is there, say a vehicle. We need to capture diesel consumption for this vehicle thorugh the fin-year or accross fin-years. In this case One maintenance order is created on this equipment and the Diesel consumption is recorded through MB1A transaction on this Order. This order is kept open as long as we want."

    Standing work orders are nothing but the work orders and these are generally used in following cases.

    1) If there is a long time taking maintenance job (e.g.long repair job on one equipment) then you do not need to create a maintenance order every time.

    2) If there is a daily minor work like visual inspection.

    Standing orders are used to carry out on-going maintenance jobs & settle them periodically rather than creating a fresh PM order every time.You can define an order type for standing orders just like corrective maintenance and preventive maintenance order types for distinguishing.

    Job specific orders are created for the purpose of performing a specific job and they are settled (KO88) and closed (Business completion) as soon as the job is done.

    Whereas 'Standing orders' are settled periodically (KO88 is done periodically), and these are open (in the REL status) as long as you wish.

    Settlement orders(Internal orders) are general cost collectors created on CO module; these orders are settled to cost center or any other cost collectors as WBS elements. These are generally internal order from controlling on which we settle the maintenance orders as per business requirement.This order may be maintained on the equipment record to create automatically the settlement rule on the work order if you settlement profile is customized.
