Equipment master data handling process

We have huge SAP-PM equipment data change scenarios like , change in FL , change in status , change in field values(like manufacturer , model etc) . We have standard templates for each scenario and user sends the same to central master team to upload . We have LSMWs to upload the data .

Our problems are , some time user sends data for equipments which doesn't belong to him (Plant , planner group) . He gives manufacturer and model data which is irrelevant for the equipment technical object type etc.Although LSMW throws error in many scenarios , we need a solution where in user data is checked before hand through some automated solution (For eg a LSMW which actually does not execute the transaction but creates a output file showing whether the transaction will be successful , is the input maintenance plant and equipment maintenance plant same etc.....

What is the usual practice followed in such scenarios ....We don't authorize end users to do that transaction due to some issues

    Hi Narsimhan,

    I am working on the same scenario's, but in my case the data is finally uploaded by the MDM Team, but all the LSMW's are being made by me only in the development, and I only transport it to Quality where I check the LSMW by uploading the given masters from the client in the Quality itself.

    and then transport it to the Production. where MDM Team do the job.

    hope this was what you were asking.

      HI Narsimhan,

      I dont understand if someone has asked you to check the FL for an Equipment why you need the other fields, as per my knowledge you can do this just with the equipment no and the New FL list given in the excel and let it come via validation and approval from the client senior and authorized persons.

      as the tool you are asking, I have never come across the same, I am still following the same old procedure to do the master data change vial LSMW. can you please through some more light on the same tool, you are asking, may be I can also use it.
