 Enhancements for Maintenance Notifications


This feature provides the following new functions for processing maintenance notifications on the SAP Web UI for Plant Maintenance:

  • You can enter activities and use them to confirm the work you have completed.

  • On the Malfunction Data tab, you can document damages by selecting predefined damage codes or by manually entering the damages along with descriptions and object parts.

  • You can assign a task list to the maintenance notification. If this notification is later assigned to an order, the system copies the operations of the task list to the order.

  • You can create long texts directly in the malfunction data, task data, and in the activities, and edit the long texts in a popup.

  • You can create notifications using a template (reference notification). When you create a notification by copying an existing notification, you can specify whether you want the linked documents to be copied to the new notification as well.

  • You can set additional system statuses in the notification, which up to now you could only display. You can set these system statuses in the Order and Notification List as well.

  • You can assign technical objects using a structure list.
