Equipment PRTs assignment in Maintenance Order

Dear All,

When we assign a Equipment PRT in maintenance order, it can not check the availability of the equipment PRT, only shows that the PRT is available although the same PRT is assigned to another maintenance order with same required dates. So is there any way that we can restrict the availability of equipment PRT once assigned to a maintenance order on a particular time.

Thanks in Advance

    Dear Thyagarajan,

    In cutomizing all the rules are checked in availabilty check of PRT but when i take a scenario of creating two maintenance orders on an equipment on the same date, same operation time and select the same PRT then the system cannot perform the availability check of PRT only give a message that PRTs are available.

    Is there any other setting that i have to maintain ...... It would be every helpful if u can take the same scenario and check availability of PRT as an equipment and let me know .....

    Thanks for you help.

    Regards,

    • hi imran

      prt availabiltiy check is only for checking whether PRT is available or not( ie if equipmnet status is allowing or not and in case of material whether is available .if one material is there, you can use the same one for different orders,

      Using PRTs for which you have created equipment master records in the system, has the following advantages:

      You can monitor wear and tear of production resources/tools.

      To do this, create a counter for the PRT’s equipment master record (PRT usage counter). The counter reading, which is updated when the order is completed, provides information about how many units are available after the PRT has been used.

      You can restore the production resource/tool to working condition in a cycle.

      You also define a preventive maintenance plan for a PRT, in addition to a performance-based counter. In the preventive maintenance plan, you define at what counter reading (meaning at what level of wear and tear) the PRT must be restored to working order. You enter the preventive maintenance plan in the PRT’s equipment master record.

      It will not check whether the same prt is used in different work orders

    Thank you for the reply.

    If for example, that was the case than why in prt dates, we give the PRT usage dates and duration ....

    Any helpful answer would be highly appreciated.

      yep I have the same problems with PRTs it is really unbelievable that you cannot schedule PRTs as you would expect from such feature to do.

      I have the same requirement where I want to schedule a prt for a certain period so you should not be able to schedule it again in the same period but should be ablt to schedule in other periods.
