Performance based maintenance and updating of measuring points.


I have the follwoing problem. I have serveral equipments / measuing points linked to a performance based strategy based on produced items. But because of missing of using (producing items) equipmen for longer periods there is no opdating of measuing points/ creation of measuing documents. But the system IP30 are still creating maintenance orders - based on the calculation of AnnualEstimate in the measuing point. To aviod this SAP standard says we should freq. update the measuig point. But it is not possible to do this (busssineswise)....or at least I have been thinking about the following solution:

1. Create a LSMW for IK11, creating create a measuing document with a diffenrence of zero for all measuing points on the plant.

2. Run IP30

These step should be done freq. (expected every week) in a batchjob.

The number of measuing points are approx: 100. It will normaly be updated thorugh a integration to production orders via PRT.

But i can not figure wheater this will give other problems or just solve the issue.

    I think the best solution here would be to have 'Completion Requirement' selected for these maintenance plans. This will stop at the first maintenance call and will not create any further. So even if you run IP10/IP30, it won't create next call at all.

      Hi Woer,

      As youe mentioned you are not using the equipments for longer duration then why dont you make it Inactive, so that referenec to this sstatus you can prevent the Plan to generate the order.

      Just see if this solve your purpose.

    Another option is to reduce annual estiamte to 1. So if your cycle is say 100 hours, next order will be scheduled after 100 years.

    Hope this helps-
