Hi Sudhakar,

The Maintenance Event Builder (MEB) provides an intuitive, easy-to-use way to manage the planning of maintenance revisions that represent individual work packages. The MEB can help you review maintenance notifications, assign notifications to revisions, generate Plant Maintenance or Customer Service orders from the task lists in the notifications, and assign the work. You can view outstanding work requirements, due dates, work orders, and other maintenance planning information. MEB can also help you examine your resource situation.

MEB supports the planner by creating work packages that include outstanding maintenance requirements for upcoming maintenance events. A maintenance event can represent a heavy maintenance event or a line maintenance event. Once you have set up the work package you can generate required work orders for technicians.


MEB comprises the following major features:


Notifications are grouped into revisions that represent the work package to be performed in a maintenance event. The revision work area enables you to work with multiple revisions at a time. The revision work area is also linked to the planning board for easy navigation (Using the Revision Work Area).

For larger maintenance operations when a project is needed, you can assign the revision to a project network or WBS element. This assignment enables the automatic assignment of orders generated for this revision to the project structure using the PM/PS reference element (Assigning Maintenance Orders to Projects). This way, the maintenance orders are sequenced based on the project plan (Maintenance Planning With the Maintenance Event Builder).


Work requirements are represented in a list of maintenance notifications, which enables you do the following:

· Select outstanding maintenance notifications based on a set of flexible search criteria that include functional location or equipment.

· View outstanding work requirements, due dates, work orders, and other material planning information.

· Drag and drop notifications to assign or reassign them (Using the Notification Selection List).

· Defer notifications (Deferring Notifications).

For larger maintenance processes, use a task list hierarchy to reflect the structure of work to be performed. The task list hierarchy lets you organize task lists and group the work. The task lists contain the actual operations to be performed in a maintenance event. You can drill down to display the linked task lists and resulting operations that provide the details of the maintenance task (Maintenance Task List Hierarchies).


You can create Plant Maintenance or Customer Service orders from the task lists and task list hierarchies in the notifications and assign the orders to a project network that represents a maintenance slot. When you create orders from task lists, the following steps are performed:

1. Task list hierarchy explosion

2. Exclusion and elimination of task lists

3. Order creation for each task list that remains after step 2

The work orders place a material demand on the supply chain to trigger the material procurement process (How Orders are Created in the Maintenance Event Builder). You can assign orders to projects using the PM/PS interface (Assigning Maintenance Orders to Project Network Activities). You can use a report to create orders for a revision as a background process (Creating Orders From a Revision Report).

Planning Board

The planning board displays the following views:

· Technical object

In this view, revisions are displayed in the planning board for each technical object. At any time, this view provides an overview about which location the technical object is scheduled or available for maintenance.

· Work center

In this view, revisions about which technical object is scheduled or available for maintenance are displayed by location.

· Capacity

This view enables you to see the available capacity versus the load for each capacity (for example, per work center) in a histogram format. This information can help you locate resource bottlenecks
