Greetings Carlos,

I believe your requirement is to have a scheduled Maintenance Call on a key date in January and then the same day in June each year, e.g. 15th Jan & 15th Jun, correct?

In that case, you can't make it with a single cycle, as your maintenance is 5 and then 7 months apart.

Instead, think of this as two Maintenance Packages with cycles of 12 months, set apart by a 5-month Offset.

Create a Strategy with a Time - Key Date Scheduling Indicator and at least two Maintenance Packages. Define each Package with 12 month cycles, with one being shifted by a 5-month Offset. Then create and start your Task List and Maintenance Plan from Jan 15th (for example). Please see the screenshot attached.

Thank you for the answer, but I don't have access to create single cycle plan, IP41.

you need to use IP11 and IP42 for this purpose. You need either the authorizations to these t-codes,  or alternatively, you could set up two annual single cycle plans and start one in January and one in June, but it is clumsy.

Hi Carlos.

I think you need to create a single cycle maintenance plan with a cycle of 6 months, call horizon 100%, and scheduling indicator Time-Key date. You can put in a scheduling period e.g. 5 years if applicable, otherwise leave it blank.

Now suppose I want to start the maintenance plan from year 2016, and want orders to be created on 1st Jan and 1st July every year. What I will do it start the maintenance plan in IP10 from cycle start date 01 July 2015. Due to scheduling indicator being Time-Key Date, the system will generate the order always on the 1st of the month in which it is due.

The reason for selecting Time-Key date as scheduling indicator is that if you don't do this and select scheduling indicator Time instead, then system will keep adding 30x6=180 days starting with the cycle start date, so the resulting date may not always be the 1st of the month or in the long run may not fall in the same month as well.

I hope it helps.

Hello Carlos,

Scheduling based on Factory Calendar looks to be then answer to your query. May take clues from this post   Scheduling a background job using factory calendar
