Beginner PM question

I don't have access to SAP quite yet (so I am obviously a complete newbie), so when I needed a report on all of the scheduled work orders for a production line, a coworker printed it out for me (image below). I am trying to organize it, but I am having issues with understanding what each column means, more specifically the dates:

What exactly does date created / date changed on mean? First I thought "created on" meant when the work order was scheduled, and "changed on" was the date it actually got carried out, but some of the dates are three years apart, so it doesnt really make any sense. This is probably super stupid & simple, but any serious answers (with any other helpful tips if you don't mind) are greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to the EAM forum - its a good place to ealrn stuff relating to PM and CS..


    MAT = Maintenance activity type -> i.e. the "type" of maintenance work being carried out. PM2/TS1 is a code that will have some text description in the system

    Type = the Order type. PM02 is usually for planned/preventive maintenance (PM01 for corrective maintenance)

    Created = this is the SAP username that created the order (the column should read Created By)

    Created on = the date that the order was created in the SAP system

    By = This the SAP username that changed the order (the column should read Changed By)

    Changed On = the date that the order was last changed in the SAP system
