Maintenance Activities Dependencies and Scheduling

Hi experts,

We currently have a requirement to create planned maintenance activities for a whole year.

The activities are as follow:

Activity 1: Execute on X date

Activity 2: Execute 2 weeks after Activity 1 has been finished

Activity 3: Execute 1 weeks after Activity 2 has been finished

Activity 4: Execute 5 weeks after Activity 3 has been finished

We wish to create a relationship dependency within these activities, but we're not sure how to do this. One scenario we were thinking was to make every activity a maintenance order, but we're not sure how to do the scheduling part for the orders to be created or released "X time" after the last order has been completed.

The other option was to create the activities as operations within an order, but again we're not sure how to manage these relationships and dependencies with operations. We're aware of the Relationships function, but we wish to schedule the activities taking into account the time intervals between the activities and re-scheduling when delays occur or when they are finished before the planned date.

Thanks and best regards,

Fernando Montenegro

    Fernando Montenegro,

    You could manage the same with both the options you had indicated.Basically you would use the OFFSET field to manage the delay between related activities.

    Ideally you would manage this by creating each one of them as a separate operation within the work order. You could use the relationship tab to specify the dependencies between them along with the offset values.

    For ex: On Operation 20 : Relationsip tab you would need to create a entry with "Op 10", Offset value of "2" with unit "Week", with relation ship type "FS" and with succesor indicator "selected".

    Hope it helps.
