preventive maintenance: how to update orders?

scenario:

preventive maintenance plan generated PMorders on certain equipments for a certain date.

in the meantime, the equipment has been placed somewhere else (for whatever reason) but the generated PMorder still shows the previous FL installation.

how can I run an automatic update for the PM order to show the right FL?

either general or specifically when the equipment is being uninstalled/installed?

thanks

Alisa

    Hi,

    There is nothing to do an automatic update.

    Within the order itself (IW32), you can update the reference object as follows:

    (From HEADER tab)

    Right mouse click - select 'Update reference object data'

    or Ctrl+F10

    You could develop a batch job to do updates on a regular basis.

    • Hi,

      In the case of a new development, It should be possible to use a exit to add the equipment ID to a custom table after a change of installation. Then a batch job running in background would read this table. Once a changed equipment is identified, find all orders that reference that equipment and update those orders.

    Hi,

    When you dismantle of the equipment do with the Dismantle with data transfer & try.

    Acually the Mplan who has cretaed mention the previous FL which it was installed duing the creation of Maintenence Plan.

    Try with the Userexit for the order & replace with the current Functional location.

    Regards,

    thanks

    but in fact in the Mplan the FL changes to the new one so, for future PMorders there is no problem.

    the problem exists for the already existing order, which contains the old FL still.

    any other ideas out there?
