Maintenance Plan Scheduling

Dear All,

What is the significance of shift factors and tolrences in maintenance planning...

My client requirement is for weekly maintenance plan

plan date is : 18.09.2008 call date :18.09.2008

next plan date:25.09.2008 call date : 25.09.2008

but he has completed the first call object on 23.09.2005 that is variance is 5 days

so next planned date should adjust according to completion date..that is 23.09.2008 when he reshedule the plan..

.How to adjust shift factors to acheive the same...

Regards

Johnson

    hi

    The shift factor in the event of late completion of a maintenance task defines the percentage of the shift to be applied to the calculation of the next date.

    It is only applied when the variance between target and actual date is outside the tolerance range.

    so you use 100% so when ever you schedule is delayed the dates are pushed.

    ex your order is asper plan on 01.08.08. but you completed it on 01.09.08. so if you use the shift factor 100% the next dat is on 01.10.08 (if the plan is monthly)

    Dear,

    The shift factor only applies once the maintenance plan has already been scheduled, and when the difference between the planned date and actual date lies outside the tolerance range.

    Johnson,

    Set both tolerances to zero and both shift factors to 100%.

    This should give the response you require.

      Dear Vijay,

      As per ur example u don't need to select completion requierment, only maintain the shift factor if there is any delay in the completion of the order then next order will be shifted for the same no. days if shift factor is 100%.

      regards
