Are you getting tired to open each Maintenance Order individually to check of Materials are available today? Or during the day while trying to schedule a maintenance work?

One of the most important reports for maintenance orders is IW38, which most of maintenance planners would use during it’s daily work. While IW38 is a great report, it was missing the possibility to perform effectively for the availability of the materials needed for the maintenance work.

SAP has recently released a set of notes that enable in the Change PM Orders (IW38) report the checking of the Material Availability for a set of selected mainteance orders.

The result of the Material Availability check is shown via a log screen with detailed information on each individual Order

It’s also possible to create a background job or parform ad-hoc mass material availability check with the new IW38A transaction.

Please refer to the following note to get additional information:
