Operation relationship in an order and between orders.

Hi all,

I have the following scenario for which a problem is being faced by me:

I a maintenance order operations are assigned; these operations can be related to one another by maintaining operation relationships (FS/FF/SF/SS).

I am able to do all these without any problem. The issue is

For example,

the predecessor operation is 0010, successor operation is 0020

Relatioship type : FS

Offset rel. ship: 10.0 Min

Work center : xxxxxx

Plant: xxxx

After this the order was scheduled once agin.

Now as per the setting done, system should not allow me to do operation confirmation of operation 0020 without confirming operation 0010 first.

But system is allowing me to confirm operation 0020 without giving any warning or error.

Is there any IMG steting need to be done to overcome this issue.

Moreover I found that the "Successor Ind." field in the relationships screen of an operation is masked. Is this the problem?

I mean if this filed can be unmasked so that I can activate the check box as required by me?

Your valuable suggestions are most requested

Thanks and best regards.

Kannan J

    Kannan,

    On the maintenace order, The relatioships are the order screen are more for planning purpose and dont really control the confirmation process. Based on the relationship thats maintained you can dispatch just the first operation on the order to be completed and then dispatch the second operation, once you assign employees to it.

    However if your requirements are such that you would want the confirmation to be posted in order, you can definetly put additional custom checks(confirmation user exists) on the same and accompish your requirement.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Please check the following customization settings:

    Project system->Operational structures->Network->Settings for network activities ->Define control key (Transaction OPSU) , select the control key used in your activity type and see whether "Confirmation" is" required". Most likely it is optional.

    Make confirmation "required" and then your problem should be resolved.

    If the problem is solved, kindly acknowledge the same.

      Hi Kannan,

      I think you are going in wrong direction. The relationships are meant only for scheduling purpose and has nothing to do with confirmations. Confirmation required config is used to define if the operation can be confirmed or not. It does not validates whether the previous opertion is confirmed or not. So You need to go for a development to do this validation, when an opertion is confirmed.
