 Order Types


The order type is a classification characteristic for orders. It consists of control information that is important for managing orders.

The order type is client-based. This means that each order type can be used in all controlling areas.


Order types are primarily used to group orders according to application components. More detailed structuring also considers the realization and subsequent processing options of individual orders.

For example, the following order types are available in the standard system:

  • PM01 for maintenance orders (PM)

  • PM04 for refurbishment orders (PM)

  • PM06 for investment orders (PM)

  • SM01 for service orders (CS)
