Service operation in maintenance task list do not create requirements - PM

Hello experts,

I am new in PM and i am struggling with some issues when programming maintenance plans (with service operations) in IP10.

After releasing and saving one PM order of the maintenance plan programmed it is programmed so, I check the PM order created in IW39 but I cannot see nothing about the operation 020 - service - (PM05). I cannot use the control key PM02 because it does not accept service packages and PM03 does not program/Schedule.

What I am trying to demonstrate it that a Service for a maintenance plan could be planned and in some transaction I would be able to see PR for service procurement as I can see in MD04 (after executing MD02) PR for material - spare parts.

My maintenance plan is PM - so I consider that it should work for services and spare parts but, ¿am I wrong? ¿should I create a maintenance plan MM for services? With this plan I would have to program more plans and to release more orders...

If I do the MM plan, ¿how do I find out what is the valid range number to create it with IP40? (SPRO is not helping me: Plan maintenance & customer service > maintenance plans, work centers, task lists > Maintenance plans >Define range numbers maintenance plans ---> modifying groups to add to another interval, but it does not work on IP40)

PM05 is standard an internal service and will not create an PR.

You better use PM03. If you need you can make it schedule relevant, or use PM03 in a sub operation under a PM01 task that is scheduling relevant.
