Workshop: Equipment June 29, 2006 Project Goals Implement SAP Plant Maintenance system Provide integration with Finance, HR, and Materials Allow enhanced scheduling and planning for work assignments Provide work scheduling as well as management reporting tools Accommodate the use of mobile technology to reduce paperwork Accommodate the use of GIS with SAP Improve automated updates to customers about the status of work Implement a Preventive Maintenance system for buildings, areas, and equipment Utilize standard SAP functionality to collect utility usage and cost information for recharge calculations Agenda Introduction Discussion of the Equipment Master Other Discussion What is SAP Equipment? A piece of equipment is an individual object that is to be maintained independently. Each piece of equipment is managed independently in the system, so that you can: Manage individual data from a maintenance perspective for the object Perform individual maintenance tasks for the object Keep a record of the maintenance tasks performed for the object Collect and evaluate data over a long period of time for the object Pieces of equipment can be installed and dismantled at functional locations. The usage times for a piece of equipment at a functional location are documented over the course of time. What is SAP Equipment? Recommendation: Create an equipment master record for a technical object if: Individual data is to be managed for the object (for example, year of construction, warranty period, usage sites) Maintenance tasks are to be performed for the object, either regular, planned or resulting from damage A record of the maintenance tasks performed for the object must be kept (for example, for insurance or compulsory annual inspection purposes) Technical data on the object is to be collected and evaluated over a long period of time The costs of maintenance tasks are to be monitored for the object Records of usage times at functional locations are required for the object SAP Equipment Screens SAP Equipment Screens SAP Equipment Screens What is Classification? Fields can be added to Equipment via Classification Each Class has one or more Characteristics An Equipment Master may belong to None, One, or Many Classes Characteristics may be ADDED to a class at any time. The added characteristics will be available to all objects in that class. A Few Other Notes on Equipment An “Authorization” group may be established for equipment which will only allow certain groups of people to change certain equipment. Fire Alarms may be modeled as equipment. This will allow reporting of Out of Service and In Service for each fire alarm. Equipment is not required to be installed at a functional location. An example of this could be vehicles. Topics For Next Blueprinting Session No Blueprinting Sessions are scheduled Thank you for your hard work and thoughtful input.
