Putting Assets on hold

Has anyone had a scenario of putting assets on hold (eg. Truck needs to be repaired for 3mos)? Would like to know if someone had the similar process.

What happens to the maintenance plans linked to them and the related maintenance orders?

Do you still create measuring documents while these assets are put on hold?

Lock the plan for the duration.

Then at the end of the duration you will need to reschedule the plan.

HI Pete,

Thanks is this to set "inactive" to the plan?

If yes, Unfortunately, we cannot set them as inactive due to linked budgeting tool as it will ignore the plans with the status inactive.

IF we can just push forward the basic start dates of the related work orders? will that help?


If possible, did you have a mass program that you've created to do a mass change to reschedule the plans?


How about changing your budget tool?



oh.. that will be a mess.. as we had a lot of frustrations getting the data right with that tool.. now we are like trying not to touch it at the moment as it seem too delicate it will mess up again :(

Hi Nazarene,

If the equipment will not be involved for any other order creations or work, then you can set the inactive status for the equipment which will avoid scheduling of maintenance plans.

1. If you are ok to keep the orders open and change the basic dates, set the completion requirement check box in maintenance plan and generate one order, dont TECO. May be you can link the repair order for that equipment to this order.

2. If the plans are related to measurement documents (counters), then you dont need to do any thing, since on scheduling if the counter is reached then only it will generate the order, so dont post the measurement documents. (Check this concept in the system).

3. Create a new sort and assign to the plan, so it can be avoided when executing the batch job.
