Assignment of Plant in Purchase Requisition wrt to Maintenance Order

HI,

I have a functional location A which belongs to Planning plant XXXX and Maintenance Plant AAAA. When i create order for this functional location with an external operation, system is creating a Purcahse requition for the external operation with a Plant XXXX (Planning Plant).

My requirement is system to create Purchase requisition with the Maintenance Plant AAAA. Is it possible to changes the plant before system creates Purcahse requistion (before order release) as we have option to changes the plant for non stock materail purchse requistion?

Could any body expain me the concept behind creating the purchase requistion with Planning Plant and also is it possible to change the Plant to Maintenance plant for external operation?

Thanks & regards,

Basavaraj

    Hello Mr. Basavraj,

    The system is behaving in the standard manner only you try to get the concept that the Maintenance Plant is just for the Executing of the job on the field, rest Every thing will be as per the Planning Plant Only.

    Hope it helps you.

    Hi Medi

    As Mr yawar khan has rightly said in standard SAP, the concept of planning plant is for planning all resources required (material, external service) for that plant in maintenance order. Planning plant concept is used for a scenario where a particular plat/planner group is planning for multiple plants. As a result you can have planning plant wise analysis of various maintenance parameters (breakdown, cost etc) at primary level and maintenance plant wise as further drill down. In your scenario you can have same planning plant & maintenanance plant & for other reporting reason you can create plant section under one plant or plnner group under one planning plant.
