SAP PM frequency

If a PM work order frequency is a 3 months, should it be considered that it can be closed within 3 months period or should it be closed on the month it was released only?

    I would think the answer to your question is a business decision. Some places would want the order completed within a week, others within a month and still others anytime within the full 3 months would be OK. The good news is, the system can be set up to make the work order start and finish dates whatever you need by setting the Lead Float and Follow-Up Float values for the package within the maintenance strategy.

    Hi Gaynor,

    The maintenance strategy used in the maintenance plan defines the PM order creation frequency.System does monitor the order end date and highlight it as due but user has the freedom to update the dates and complete order.

    Best practice is to complete the order by the due date, TECO, settle and close in the same month so that the books of account gets updated.

    Regards
