Multiple Counter Maintenance Plan

Hi Gurus,

I have a requirement from the client to develop a smart functionality and enhance the existing multiple counter maintenance plan

The current standard plan for every vehicle is

90 DAYS or 20000 KM L Service || 180 DAYS or 40000 KM A Service || 270 DAYS or 60000 KM L Service || 360 DAYS or 80000 KM B Service || 450 DAYS or 100000 KM L Service || 540 DAYS or 120000 KM A Service || 630 DAYS or 140000 KM L Service || 720 DAYS or 160000 KM C Service

Though it's maintained in the system it's not been used because the service cycle changes frequently.

Taking one scenario:

On the 180th-day deadline monitoring will create an order for A service, but if the vehicle has not covered 20k, they will do L service.

Again, after 270 days deadline monitoring will create an order for L service, but if the vehicle has covered 40k, they will do A service.

How can we enhance the existing maintenance plan to read the last km reading and accordingly propose the right service?

Thanks!

Hi Amar,

Explore the concept of performance based strategy and then set up this strategy on a task list by linking the maintenance package (associated the performance) to the relevant operations on the task list.

Then create a maintenance plan with this strategy and task list.

Hi Shreyas,

The client is not ready to do service based on only km's. They want days and Km both..

Thanks,

Hi Amar -

1) How about multiple counter approach. One for Km's and one for days.You might have to set up multiple plans based on the combination of these two such that appropriate operations are on the order.

2) If you do not want too many maintenance plans then may be an enhancement approach might be needed, you can basically set up measuring points for days and kms against each technical object and a custom table with all permutations of days and kms linked to the relevant task list. When any combination is being met then the task list gets added on the order.

3) Also you can try if multiple measuring points (one for days and one for kms) can be defined in a strategy based plan. I know one measuring point can be defined in performance based strategy plan but not sure if two can.

Hi Amar,

Based on your business requirement stated below

"On the 180th-day deadline monitoring will create an order for A service, but if the vehicle has not covered 20k, they will do L service"

I dont think multiple counter plan is possible. In multiple counter plan you can either call an order when 180 day or A Service is reached or both are reached.

Performance based Maintenance plan (Counter plans) doesn't solve your query ?

Performance Based - Maintenance plan

Hi Terence,

Thanks for the input.

yes, multiple counter plan is not solving my query and client is not ready to move to performance-based plan. They want days factor as well.

E.g. many times vehicle is covering only 4000 km in 180 days. Then there is no point in doing A service( A service consist of multiple checks), whereas L service is having minimal checks.

Coming back to original question, is there any enhancement possible in the maintenance plan?

I am thinking to devise a strategy to refresh maintenance call based on the last service done, days and number of km covered. I am thinking of creating a strategy table with possible combination of services

E.g. Vehicle last service was L at 4000km and 180 days. Now in the next deadline monitoring run, it should check the current km reading the last service done and the number of days passed since the last service and accordingly assign the service due. It means if the vehicle crossed 40k in 270 days, it should create a work order with A service rather than L service.

If anyone knows how custom/standard exit to IP30 works, it would be of great help to me.

Thanks,

Amar

Amar Deep,

I think you'll need to develop a solution that chooses between two task lists (A/L) based on whichever counter is triggered first.

Have a look BADI IWO1_TL_INTEGRATION2 via SE18.

Thanks PeteA.

Yes, I am opting for a custom solution and already planned to use this BADI.
