Production Resources/Tools in PM order

Hi PM Gurus,

Equipment Production Resources/Tools and Material Production Resources/Tools have been used in our client system. Now my client wanted to manage these tools by MM inventory management to avoid losing some of them.

I can make it for material PRT, for example, activate the serial number management and post goods receipt with mvt '562' (enter the equipment number as the serial number) to withdraw the material PRT, after completing the maintenance, post goods receipt with mvt '561' to return the material PRT to the storage location.

My concern is that for the equipment PRT, how can we store the equipment in the stock?

Does anyone faces this kind of requirement?

Cheers,

SQ

    hi

    We create equipment PRT via t-code IE25 and assign a material number in 'SerData' tab.

    So that we can track the stock of assigned material on behalf of the equipment PRT.

    Also we activate the serial number management in order to track the withdraw and return each equipment PRT. (mb1b, mvt 311)

    But we can not do the stock availablity check for equipment PRT in PM order.

    R/3 only checks the status (available or not) of equipment PRT which is different from material PRT.

    For example, we need 3 unit equipment PRT, but in the warehouse there is only 1 unit equipment PRT available.

    When we do the PRT availablity check, the system says all PRTs are available. >_<

    For material PRT assigned to an operation in PM order, we can do both status and inventory stock check.

    Cheers,

    Sun Qiang

    Hi

    Just to share the simplest procedure...

    You can create the Material master as FHMI (PRT )type.

    Now boost the stock with 561 mvt type in say a fixed location "Tool room"

    whenever you want to transfer PRT from one location to other use 311 mvt type for Storgae Location(tool room) to storage location in MM.

    This will help you to locate the tool.

    Regards

    Sujit

    Hi Sujit,

    Yes, your suggestion is acceptable. Do you have any idea on 'Equipment PRT'?

    Cheers,

      Hi

      See Equipment is created as a Equipment Master ( IE01)

      where as PRT is created as FHMI material type in MM01.

      we have same scenario where we have created a Equipment as both Equipment master & PRT.

      so that we can do 311 mvt type with PRT & calibrate it with IP01 by making it Equipmwnt master.

      I hope its clear.

      Regards

      Sujit
