SAP PM Equipment Phase-out Process Flowchart

SAP PM New Equipment Phase Out Process Flowchart

Picture Description

The flowchart provides a structured process for phasing out equipment within the SAP system. It guides the maintenance supervisor through the necessary steps for deactivating equipment, which may be scrapped or sold, ensuring that all related data is updated accordingly. This process comes into play when a scrapping request is made by the field unit or production shop floor, followed by the necessary approvals. Subsequent actions include updating the equipment master data, deactivating maintenance plans, and closing any open transactions related to the equipment.
