    They are not the same.

    See the SPRO picture attached.

    Top one is for Equipment, Plans etc. Table T024I.

    Bottom one is for Tasklists Table T024A.

    Because you may have different people or groups responsible for equipment and task lists.

    Tasklists are nothing but Routing of PP module (CA01). This Routing Planner Group must havecontinued into PM module also after its evolution. Whereas the Planner Groups of Technical Objects represent a clear purpose in PM.

    For the question whether both these can be same, it is Yes, most of the implementations have same list of Planner Groups had to be repeated at these two places. So far I haven't come across any application in PM module where these two need to be different lists.

    Shiv Kumar,

    I have slightly different experience of using the planner groups on the technical objects (equipment/flocs) and task lists where these values are nearly always different.

    The planner group in the technical objects are often trade, location, or process/function related examples may be Electrical, or Module 1A or Steam Process. Remember that this data gets copied from the technical object to the order/notification as default data..

    The planner group in the task list header is a little different in that it does not get used in any other documents. In the past I have used this field to segregate task lists into area/groups. Examples may be electrical task lists, health and safety task lists, country/region task lists, etc.
