Additional Details

Using the Maintenance Plan or Maintenance Item application, you can assign documents by assigning cause codes or reason codes to a maintenance item. Using transaction QS41, you can assign a document to a catalog code and that catalog code can be assigned to a reason or a cause.

To simplify the selection of codes, you can assign code groups to a catalog profile. You can then assign these catalog profiles to the maintenance plan category in Customizing or to the technical object of the maintenance plan while maintaining master data.

If a maintenance item is assigned to a maintenance strategy, you can assign reasons or causes to individual maintenance packages of the strategy.

Documents that are assigned to a maintenance item are assigned to maintenance orders as dependent documents.

You can search for maintenance plans or maintenance items using the document info record or reason/cause codes assigned to them, using the Maintenance Plan and Maintenance Item List on the SAP Web UI for Plant Maintenance.
