Central Applications

Application Component

Plant Maintenance (PM), Quality Management (QM), Claim Management (PS-CLM)

Required Business Function

Codes ensure that issues can be entered in a standardized way and therefore be evaluated automatically. In Plant Maintenance, codes describe damage and malfunctions, the causes of the damage as well as its maintenance and repair, all of which is entered as technical findings in the plant maintenance history. In Quality Management, codes can be used, for example, to describe defect types, defect locations, defect causes, tasks, characteristic values, and usage decisions. You can use this business function to retrospectively deactivate codes that you have already used in documents. Deactivated codes are no longer available in the input help and can no longer be assigned manually either.

Features

You define codes in Customizing for Plant Maintenance and Customer Service, for Quality Management (Quality Planning, Quality Inspection, Quality Notification) and for Claim Management, by choosing, for example:

  • Start of the navigation path Maintenance and Service Processing Next navigation step Maintenance and Service Notifications Next navigation step Notification Creation Next navigation step Notification Content Next navigation step Maintain Catalogs End of the navigation path

  • Start of the navigation path Quality Notifications Next navigation step Notification Creation Next navigation step Notification Content Next navigation step Maintain Catalogs End of the navigation path

  • Start of the navigation path Project System Next navigation step Claim Next navigation step Notification - Claim Next navigation step Notification Creation Next navigation step Notification Content Next navigation step Maintain Catalogs End of the navigation path

Codes that are already used and for which the usage indicator has been set cannot be deleted. This business function allows you to deactivate such codes and thus prevent them from being used in the future. The new Deactivated checkbox in the Change Codes view in Customizing allows you to deactivate codes in this way. You can only deactivate codes if they are not part of a selected set.

The following applies for deactivated codes:

  • Deactivated codes can no longer be assigned during notification processing, for example. They are not visible in the input help. If the user tries to enter a deactivated code manually, the system displays an error message.

  • Even after they have been deactivated, codes are available as selection criteria in some reports. These codes are then displayed as deactivated in the input help for the reports. In reports, you can also display long texts and assigned documents for deactivated codes.

Note Note

Codes that you have deactivated in Customizing are hidden in the input help on the SAP Web UI for Plant Maintenance and cannot be assigned manually.

End of the note.
