In PM order can be when there is regular maintenance (preventive) or breakdown maintenance.

1) Can be made thro Notification - T.Code IW31

( Maintenance Work Order and Maintenance Work Notification is created. System automatic generate Maintenance Notification for all Order )

2) Change maintenance Work Order - Issue Permit - T.Code IW32

(Permit is Released)

3) Change maintenance Work Order - Release Work Order & Print out Work Order T.Code - IW32 and IW3D

( Before release System status : CRTD,After release System status : REL and Order & Pick list is printed )

4) Confirm Work Order-Partial confirmation & Final confirmation T.Code - IW41

( Order Status: PCNF & CNF)

5) Change Work Order - Complete Notification &- Complete Technical T.Code - IW32

( Notification is updated, Notification has status NOCO

& Work Order has status TECO)

6) Settle Work Order - T.Code KO88

( Work Order cost is settled to Cost center, Order Status: SETC)

7) Close Work Order - T.Code IW32

( Order Closed, Order Status: CLSD)

These are stages in any Maintenance order, similar to Production or Process order.

Hi Sam,

I am giving the full cycle of PM for one maintenance process, the same process is more or less equal to all maintenance processes with smaller changes

1. Create a notification with suspected problem to maintenance dept//T code - IW21

2. Create an order against notification by mentioning the time, permits,operations to be carried out, components, maintenance activity type, settlement rule, activity types etc.// t - code IW31, IW32.

3.once the above stuff is entered in order we can release the order for execution.// T-code IW32

4.If the execution is completed confirm the order partially// T code- IW41

5.Come to order screen then do the TECO (black flag), it confirms our order is completed technically.

6. Then settlement to be done // T code-IW32, the cost of the order will be settled in respective cost center.

7. Now do the business completion, which completes the order business.// T code - KO88

Hi sam,

A small correction is KO88 is for settlement of costs

Business completion will be done through IW32 to get full completion of order.
