SAP PM Scheduling the first day of the cycle

Hi,

I am currently struggling with a customer question - reading the different Q&A about scheduling.

The question : how can we have the scheduled calls the first day of the month/of every two months/of every 6 months,etc.... The first day of the cycle may not be the monday, but the first day of the cycle, whatever cycle is.

Outside of using the 'Cycle start' day, do you have other option to ease it ?

Hope the question is clear enough.

Thanks a lot!

    Hello Stephanie,

    I think you can accomplish your goal stated in your question by just utilizing the Time - key date scheduling indicator option in concert with the unit of month (MON) in your maintenance plan cycle. This essentially pegs the date to the same day of the month every time it is scheduled. An item of note should be considered in that the Time - key date option plan's call objects are influenced by the selected Factory Calendar. If you need something more sophisticated than that then you should probably look to the user exit enhancement IPRM0002 to help determine the next planned date of your maintenance plan schedule.

    Good luck,

    Bob
