Hi,

As per defination given by SAP

A maintenance strategy defines the rules for the sequence of planned maintenance work. It contains general scheduling information, and can therefore be assigned to as many maintenance task lists (PM task lists) and maintenance plans as required. A maintenance strategy contains maintenance packages

You create maintenance cycles directly in the maintenance plan for maintenance plans that were created without a maintenance strategy (for example, single cycle plan or multiple counter plan).

A distinction is made between maintenance plan types which are created without a maintenance strategy and those created with one.

Maintenance Plans Without a Maintenance Strategy

You create maintenance cycles directly in the maintenance plan for maintenance plans that were created without a maintenance strategy (for example, single cycle plan or multiple counter plan).

To create multiple counter plans, you can use a copy model for maintenance cycles, known as cycle sets.

Maintenance Plans with Maintenance Strategy

Maintenance plans which are created with a maintenance strategy (for example, time- or performance-based strategy plans) use the task list specified in the maintenance plan as a reference to the so-called maintenance packages. The maintenance packages themselves are defined in the maintenance strategy.

In a nut shell if you are using cycle sets then it works with the cycle & its combination Where as if u are using strategy then it works in conjuncation with the packages like week, month,year u defined in the strtegy. So your work will get reduced for the similar type of tasks.

Hello,

By using maintenance strategies containing general scheduling information, you can:

1.Reduce maintenance plan creation time

You do not need to create the same scheduling information for each maintenance plan.

2.Update scheduling information easily

hi patel,

Maintenance strategy :-This contains many cycles of similar units, you even assign a hirerachy to each of these cycles in strategy ...this strategy is used in Tasklist nd MP..
