    An inventory-managed single unit of material which can be uniquely identified by a combination of material and serial numbers, with an additional equipment master record if necessary.


    Repairable spares are reserves in the warehouse for certain critical and high-value components, so that these parts can be replaced immediately in the case of a breakdown. In certain cases, fully functional repairable spares must also be available in certain quantities for legal reasons.

    Repairable spares can be refurbished many times for defects or wear, and then made available again as spare parts.


    Repairable spares are managed in the system in the form of material master records.

    To identify single units of material, you have the option of assigning serial numbers. However, to do this, the following prerequisites must be fulfilled in your system:

    A serial number profile is assigned to the material master record.

    The operation PPAU must be assigned to the profile.

    For the operation PPAU, the serial number allocation must be allowed in the Serial number usage field.

    You can create an equipment master record for a serialized single unit of material.

    Repairable spares can also be valuated based on their status. Possible valuation types could be:




    Valuation types can be defined in the Customizing for Materials Management under Valuation and Account Assignment ® Split Valuation ® Configure Split Valuation.

    Choose Logistics ® Plant maintenance ® Maintenance processing ® Order ® Create (special) ® Refurbishment order.

    The initial screen appears for creating refurbishment orders.

    Enter the required data and choose Continue.

    The header data screen appears for the refurbishment order. The entry of the material number and the sections Quantities and Refurbishment are specific to this order.

    In the section Quantities, enter the total number of repairable spares which should be refurbished for this order, and then choose Continue.

    The total quantity of repairable spares specified is automatically entered in the first line of the component list for the order.

    If you want to identify the repairable spares individually, choose Objects. A dialog box appears, in which you can enter serial numbers for the specified quantity of repairable spares to be refurbished.

    You can only call up the object list if the entry of serial numbers has been allowed for the material in your system.

    For more information, see Repairable Spare.

    If it is specified in the serial number profile for the material that serial numbers must be assigned, then you must enter serial numbers for all of the repairable spares to be refurbished.

    If it is specified in the serial number profile for the material that serial numbers can be assigned, then you have the option of only entering serial numbers for some of the repairable spares to be refurbished.

    To return to the header data screen, choose Continue.

    In the section Refurbishment, enter the following data:

    The plant and storage location from which you want to withdraw the repairable spares to be refurbished

    The plant and storage location to which you will return the repairable spares to be refurbished

    If a batch management requirement and valuation category have been defined in the material master record, you can also enter the batch and valuation type here.

    Once you have entered all the required data on the header data screen, you can enter additional planning data for the order. See Planning of an Order.

    The planning of sub-orders and the assignment to revisions are not intended for refurbishment orders.

    Save the refurbishment order.

    The total quantity of repairable spares entered in the refurbishment order is now reserved for this order in the specified storage location.

    To release the order and refurbish the repairable spares, proceed as described in Order Processing: Refurbishment of Repairable Spares.
