EAM Organizational Structure

Planning and maintenance plants are the most important organizational EAM units. The planning plant is responsible to plan all maintenance activities. Technical objects like (functional locations, equipments, serial numbers) to be maintained are part of the maintenance plant.

EAM Master Data

EAM functional locations structure technical systems hierarchically indicated with a edit mask. Structure criteria are spatial, functional or technical information configured with categories, classes and object types.

Functional locations represent areas or building where equipments are installed. The master data includes general (e.g. object type), location (e.g. production work center, ABC indicator), organization (e.g. company code, cost center) with responsibilties (e.g. planning plant, planner group, responsible persons or machines as main work center) and structure information.

Functional locations offer options to track maintenance activities or costs and perform analytics like likelihood of damage for installed equipments with location conditions.

Equipments are individual physical objects which can be maintained as autonomous units and monitoring options for costs or usage. Equipments are synchronized with financial accounting fixed assets.

Serial numbers enable uniquely identifying and tracking of materials in inventory or equipments in maintenance processing.

Categories divide BOMs according to their reference into material, equipment, functional location or document BOM. The equipment construction type identifies a material with assigned BOM.

EAM Notification and Order Documents

Notifications report malfunctions or describe problems of technical objects and request maintenance activities (e.g. repair). Notifications are defined by notification types (e.g. malfunction, maintenance) and with information about location data, items (with problem details like damage code, location, reason) and activities to document tasks (work to be done).

Maintenance orders record performed operations, used components and costs. Maintenance order components are reservations needed for processing. Checks ensure the availability of these spare parts. Automatic creation purchase requisitions (never, immediately, release) for non-stock materials is controlled by order type.

Released maintenance orders become cost objects. Reservations of released orders can be fulfilled with confirmations and goods issues. Planned and actual maintenance costs are assigned to orders and settled to receivers (like cost centers or WBS elements) with rules.

Maintenance order operations contain information about control key, work center, cost center with activity types, time, salary, assignment of moveable production resource tool (PRT, like documents, drawings, instruments).

The overall order completion confirmation offers options to enter working time or measurement values.
