Hi Ashish,

Main work centre is for Plant maintainance  is nothing but a labor or group of labors  responsible for maintenance of that particular equipment.

You can use PP work center on location tab of a Equipment/functional location. Its generally of category other than 005.

So in prospective of plant maintenance, PP work center can be represented in technical object master data in Location tab.

Hi Ashish,

This PP work center is comes in picture in reference to capacity planning for production.

Meaning, if technical object ( FL/EQ) is being used for running production. & if a maintenance work order is created for this technical object, you have an option to select the system condition for this technical object.

1) In operation - Production work can be continued

2) Not in Operation -  Production work can not happen until maintenance is over.

If you select system condition as NOT IN OPERATION, it will result in PP work center commitment & capacity load records will be created for this work center.

Hi Ashish,

This integration of PP and PM, is much more important for PP.

If in your equipment, you put a work center of PP.

When you create the maintenance order (and to put system condition = Not in Operation), inside of the planning of capacity of PP, the time of maintenance, it will be unavailable for the production planner to program production orders

It is only interesting this, if in your company to use CRP PP (capacity planning).

When it will test, to ask for the person of PP, to show  CRP PP

hey there,

Please have a look at this document:

From my experience the PP Work Centre in PM was used for integration between SAP PM and PP / APO to determine resource (machine) availability to plan maintenance.
