SAP PM for Power Industry

Can anybody tell me what is the best solution for implementing SAP Plant Maintenance module for a power industry?

Client has two substations A and B which are under service contract for a period of 10 years with third parties C and D respectively. Payment to these third parties will be done on a half yearly basis. For substation A, all the maintenance activities operations and maintenance including replacement of spare parts is done by C, however, for substation B with transmission lines, only operations and maintenance activities are performed by D and any spare parts are provided by client. Client will only monitor the work performed by these two third parties as the two substations are under contract.

If I map these scenarios with maintenance notification and orders processing, it may not help the client as client will not report any breakdown or maintenance work to third parties.

I guess, maintenance plans with generation of service entry sheets and acceptance of the service entry sheets by client may suit the scenarios.

Client needs the history of the failures reported, error codes etc.

Can anybody suggest the solution for the above scenarios?

    You can define Notification and Order Types. whenever Vendor C and D , working on the substations, ask them to create notification and work order. ask them to enter all the information (Operations and material) in work order (history - failure report and codes) in notification.

    As we no need to track the manpower cost, no need to assign any activity type, so cost will not be posted in work order

    For Material, for vendor D, we need to track the material becuase client is paying for that, so we need to create seperate storage location for the cleint issues material. Seperate stroage location for vendor using (own) materials.

    Whenever the cleint want to pay the bill (half yearly), they can give this orders as referance .

    Hi Duraisamy,

    But client will not report about breakdown work and will not plan about the work. Notifying, planning and execution of the work is performed by the third parties. Client will only monitor the work done by the third parties and make the payment on half yearly basis.
