Main Work Center Plant in PM reports

We are with ECC6.0 and would like to know the PM Transactions with 'Main Work Center Plant' in selection screen. In our implementation we have Maintenance Plant and Main Workcenter Plant different for some Technical Objects. When we need to list the technical objects based on 'Main Work Center Plant' we are not able to do.

    saran,

    Your question is not clear...

    Do you want to search for equipment/functional locations by Main Work Centre?

    Hiii

    You can use Two transactions here IH08 is used to display the equipment list & IE05 is used to change the Equipment using list. Here no specific field like "plant for Work center" is not given on selection screen.

    We need to see what is your configuration. If the case is like Your workcenters are in some other plant which is different than planning plants as well as Maintenance plants.

    You are saying that your Maintenance plant & plant for workcenter is different. Then check whether your workcenters are from your planning plants. if yes then you can enter that plant in planning plant with work centers & fetch data. other wise you need to modify the report fro that selection.

    I hope this will answer your queries.

    Regards

    Hi Saran,

    I just came across the same problem you posted here.

    The issue is that while one can assign to an Equipment a Main Work Center from a Plant that's different from the Planning Plant, there appears to be no way this scenario can be reported in the standard PM lists.  For instance, in transactions IH08 or IE05, there is no selection field for 'Plant for Main Work Center' which would allow listing all Equipment whose Main Work Centers are from a Plant other than the Planning Plant. 

    Anyway, to come up with the said list of Equipment, I resorted to just extracting the data from the SAP Tables, i.e. by joining the Work Center table (CRHD) with Table V_EQUI and filtering on CRHD-WERKS (Plant for Work Center).  Not sure whether you ended up doing the same.

    To me, this issue suggests that there is a SAP-standard assumption (in the way the standard PM reports are designed) that Work Centers should be created in the same Plant as the Planning Plant. Not a problem to most organisations but can be a limitation to more complex business requirements.  (In my case, the different values for Plant for Main Work Center were due to data entry errors and required correction, hence the need for the report.)

    Regards,

    Ron
