SAP PM Process Cycle

SAP PM Process Cycle

Picture Description

The SAP Plant Maintenance (PM) Process Cycle is designed to manage and execute maintenance activities within an organization’s plant operations. This cycle demonstrates a streamlined process from the initial notification of a maintenance requirement through to the closure of the maintenance order.

  • Maintenance Notification in SAP PM 📢: The process begins with a notification, which is an alert within SAP that there is a need for maintenance.
  • PM Work Order in SAP 🛠️: Following the notification, a work order is created. This document specifies the details of the maintenance task to be performed.
  • Purchase Requisition in SAP 📜: If the work order requires external resources, a purchase requisition is made for the necessary parts or services.
  • Purchase Order in SAP 🛒: From the purchase requisition, a purchase order is issued to the supplier to acquire the needed parts.
  • Parts Received 📦: Once the parts arrive, this stage confirms the receipt of the goods necessary for the maintenance task.
  • Parts Issue to Order 📤: The received parts are then issued to the specific maintenance order, ensuring that they are allocated for the intended use.
  • Planned and Approved Order : The maintenance order is then planned out with detailed steps and resources needed, and it is subsequently approved for execution.
  • Scheduled and Released Order : The approved maintenance order is scheduled for the actual work and released, signifying it is ready to be worked on.
  • Order Execution ⚙️: This stage involves the physical execution of the maintenance task according to the work order.
  • Order Closed 🏁: Upon completion of the maintenance activity and all necessary documentation and confirmations, the order is officially closed in the SAP system.

This SAP PM Process Cycle ensures that maintenance activities are conducted efficiently and systematically, with clear documentation and tracking at each stage within the SAP environment.
