Test Equipment Management

Hi QM Experts,

I'm planning to implement the PM/QM test equipment process. I do understand the fact that the below steps have to be carried out for that.

1) Define a measuring point for the Equipment with a Class Characteristic

2) Define Master Inspection Characteristic in QM with the same Class Characteristic

3) Define Task List associating the about Master Ins. Char. and the Test Equipment

But I don't really know where/how to associate a Characteristic in step 2. Also how to Associate Test equipment in step 3.

Could somebody confirm whether the steps I follow is correct. Also I got the below questions as well,

Does a measuring document triggers the Inspection Lot

If not where do we enter the measurement figures.

Can Multiple Test Equipments be associate to single maintenance plan.

Please Clarify

    Please follow the following prcoess flow(assuming test equipment(IE01) and master data created)

    IA05- Create General Task list(Enter inspection point :300,operation,inspection charactertics to the operation,usage)

    IP01-Create maintenance plan( Use maintenace startegy of plant,enter equipment, select general task list for plan the equipment,enter call horizon,planning cycle schduling period)

    IP10-Schedule the plan Schedule the plan for the quantity with frequency defined in the plan.Which schdule the according to the schdule date.Schedule date generates pm order for the plan on due date.

    IW33-Display order.

    QE51-Calibration result recording for equipment- Gives status for result i.e ok or not ok.

    QA11-Lot usage decision

    IW41-Confirmation for the order.

    You can create a maintenance strategy(IP11) for the calibration of equipment mean to say in what frequency calibaration is carried out either monthly,weekly or yearly.

    Assign this strategy to the task list.after that follow the process steps as explained.

    Once scheduling is carried out in IP10,according to the strategy maintained in task list,system will generate maintenance calls.for example if calibration is carried out monthly and scheduling is done for the period of 12 months,system will generate 12 maintenance calls.once first call is finished do deadline monitoring(iw38),system will automatically created maintenance order for the second call.

    Calibration flow almost follows the preventive maintenance cycle except inspection point is assigned in task list.
