Maintenance Order: Assigning Operations to Object List Entries

You use the object list to assign technical objects (equipment, functional locations), assemblies, plant maintenance notifications, or objects that are identified by a combination of material and serial number to a maintenance order. With this product feature, you can assign objects that have been entered in the object list to individual order operations or suboperations. You can make this assignment in the object list or also in the operation data when you are editing a maintenance order on the SAP Web UI for Plant Maintenance. Only one single object can be assigned to each operation or suboperation.

Additional Details

With this product feature, the Operation Data and Object List tab pages provide you with the option of making new assignments between objects and order operations and suboperations, as well as changing or deleting existing assignments. You can assign different order operations to the same object, for example, to plan different maintenance tasks that have to be performed together on a technical object. However, each order operation or suboperation can be assigned to exactly one object only.

Effects on Existing Data

  • On the tab page Object List there is a new Assigned to Operation, Suboperation table column at your disposal. You can use a dropdown list to assign an operation or suboperation to each individual object in the list.

  • On the Operation Data tab page there is a new Assign Operations to an Object pushbutton at your disposal. If you select one or more operations and choose this pushbutton, the system displays a popup with all the object list entries. The object that you choose is then assigned to the selected operations.
