Initial approval on preventive maintenance

Hello all,

Is there a way (configuration or enhancement) to permit that when creating maintenance work orders from plan there is an initial approval? This approval can be at the maintenance plan (it is not possible to manage user status in the maintenance plan so I do not see how I can perform this approval on the plan) or on the creation of the first WO the order would need an approval. This approval process can only take place for the first WO, the rest of WO should be automatically released.

Anyone had faced a similar requirement?

Thanks in advance,

Best Regards

    Hi,

    You could potentially realize the same through

    1) Set the preventive maintenance order to auto release on create.

    2) Use the user exit(IWO10002 Maintenance order: Customer check for order release) to set Reject release (RELR) when the call number is "one"

    3) Having a user status profile which will be activated (Initial status set) when RELR user status is set. Set up the user status profile (Ex: Initial, submit, review, approve) for approval process and associate appropriate auth keys to the same for control purpose.

    Alternatively, you could use the User Exit IPRM0003 to define your own fields (Approval) for the maintenance item and cause the system to copy these fields (Approval) in the Call Object (Maintenance Order) and you could use the following user exit IWO10009: PM Order: Customer Check for 'Save' Event to check that with this Order type and call number 1, whether the Order contained data in the respective approval field. If yes, It lets the system save the order other wise blocks the order. and as far as the release part is concerned, set release immediately upon creation.

    Regards...
