Prerequisites
You have installed the following components as of the version mentioned:

Type of Component Component

Software Component EA-APPL 604

SAP-APPL 604

EA-iPPE 404

Features
MPL checks during installation (with the exception of installation mode 'goods movement out of stock without PM
integration')

Previously, if you had a multiple MPL structure, during the MPL check, the check was run on the very top MPL of the
structure. Therefore, you could only install a technical object into an assembly if the assembly was not installed into a
superior assembly. Now in addition to this check (Check Top MPL) there are two further check options:

Check MPL of Installed Object

In this check, the MPL of the installed object is checked, even if the assembly of the technical object is installed in
a superordinate assembly (actual con guration). It enables object dependency/parameter effectivity checks
during the installation as they work in the con guration control workbench ( CCM2).

No MPL Check

No MPL-related checks are run.

You make the setting for the MPL check in Customizing under Plant Maintenance and Customer Service -> Maintenance
and Service Processing -> Con guration Control -> Make General Settings for Installation/Dismantling. This IMG
activity has been enhanced with an extra area Extra Settings for Installation. For more information, see MPL Checks
Options During Installation.

Enhanced scope of con guration check in the Con guration Control Workbench

You can use the new Business Add-In BADI_CCM_CHECK_SCOPE to specify whether a full check or a ltered check is
carried out. With the ltered check, you can lter out actual and allowed objects from the con guration. A new dropdown
box appears in the Con guration Check area of the Con guration Control Workbench ( CCM2) when you implement the
BAdI in Customizing under Plant Maintenance and Customer Service -> System Enhancements and Data Transfer ->
Business Add-Ins -> Con guration Control -> BAdI: De ne Customer-Speci c Scope of Con guration Check.

Simultaneous usage of MPLs at different installation locations

You can now assign an MPL to several installation locations simultaneously and all MPLs are checked against their
corresponding actual elements during the con guration check. All the MPLs are displayed in the allowed con guration
area of the Con guration Control Workbench. Previously only one instance of the MPL was considered in the
con guration check.

Archiving enhancement of iPPE/MPL nodes

The system now prevents the archiving of MPL nodes with an access link. This ensures that no MPL nodes are archived
unless it is certain that the MPL structure to which the node belongs is not connected to an actual con guration
(technical object structure).

New MPL (iPPE) node types

This is custom documentation. For more information, please visit the SAP Help Portal 7
6/11/2019
With these new MPL node types you can use the same materials in iPPE variants and in material BOMs. This was not
possible with the standard iPPE node types.

Report for conversion of standard iPPE (PVS) structures to MPL structures

There is a new conversion report which you can use to convert your iPPE/PVS structures to MPL structures, enabling
you to use the same materials simultaneously in the MPL structures and in material BOMs. There is a new standard MPL
user pro le available. For more information, see Conversion of Standard iPPE (PVS) Structures to MPL Structures.

You can use this business function to enhance your portfolio of functions for Logbook and the Maintenance Event Builder (MEB).

It is crucial to have an overview of the overall reliability of an asset so you can evaluate and improve uptime and plan your
maintenance strategy more effectively. The new features for viewing logbooks and sublogbooks enable a more accurate failure
and downtime analysis so maintenance planners can make improved and informed maintenance strategies.

Authorization enhancements for MEB improve information security and compliance of technical objects.

Note
If you activate Business Function LOG_EAM_POM_2 and import Support Packages for the software components SAP-APPL
or EA-APPL, you must also import the ECC-DIMP Support Packages.

Prerequisites
You must install DIMP 6.0, activate the business functions MEB and Logbook Innovations (LOG_EAM_POM_2) and Project
Oriented Maintenance (LOG_EAM_POM) and install the following components as of the version mentioned:

Features
Logbook

Logbook synchronization

The logbook technical object hierarchy is synchronized with the actual technical object hierarchy. If a change is made to
the technical object structure, this change is re ected immediately in the Logbook application when the logbooks are
reselected. There are two possible modes for running the logbook application.

Logbook with sub-logbooks without synchronization of the technical object structure.

Logbook without the function for manually moving sub-logbooks and with synchronization of the technical object
structure (synchronous logbooks)

If you want to use the synchronous logbook object, you must run report DIACL_CUST_LBK_SYNC_MODE. This clears the
relations set for the sub-logbook nodes in the database. You access this report in Customizing under Plant Maintenance
and Customer Service Maintenance and Service Processing Logbook Display Synchronized Logbooks.
This is custom documentation. For more information, please visit the SAP Help Portal 19
6/11/2019
Note that this program acts like a switch. Once you have run the program for synchronizing logbooks, it cannot be
reversed.

Logbook Options

You can create and hide logbooks in the master data for equipment and functional locations:

If you set the Logbook duty, a logbook is created simultaneously when you create a technical object. If the
indicator is set in change mode, it indicates that a logbook exists for that technical object.

If you set the Hide logbook indicator, you can hide logbooks in the logbook hierarchy. If you choose to hide a
particular sub-logbook folder, all the application objects (for example, sub-logbooks, log entries, log noti cations,
measurement documents) below it will be assigned to its superior logbook nodes. Note that this function will not
work if the technical object in the logbook hierarchy is at the upper-most level.

To view the new subscreen containing these options, in the view pro le for technical objects, you must add screen 141.
You do this in Customizing under Plant Maintenance and Customer Service Master Data in Plant Maintenance and
Customer Service Technical Objects General Data Set View Pro les for Technical Objects.

Maintenance Event Builder

Update maintenance work order with project information

In the MEB, when orders are created for a revision with WBS elements, the WBS element is updated on the Location tab
page as well as the Additional Data tab page. Previously, you could only see the updated WBS element on the Additional
Data tab page and you had to manually enter the WBS element on the Location tab page. To enable the WBS element
information to be copied to the Location tab page, you use user parameter DIWPS_WBS_LOC. This parameter must be
de ned in the user pro le as 'X'. If you do not want to enable this function, do not de ne this parameter in the pro le.

Authorization object check for PM technical objects in the MEB

Users with no authorizations for an authority group in a technical object (authorization object I_BEGRP) are restricted
access to that technical object. This is done to restrict user access to some 'sensitive' technical objects, for example, a
part inside a nuclear engine. These restrictions are also inherited by objects such as noti cations and orders which are
created for these technical objects. In core transactions for the maintenance of noti cations and orders such as IW22/
IW32 these checks were already in place, but were not previously available in the MEB.

Authorization checks are now run on revisions, noti cations and order objects in MEB and an authorization error is
displayed on further processing of these objects. The checks are implemented in all the three work areas in the MEB.

In the noti cation work area, if the noti cation selection involves noti cations for which a user has insufficient
authorizations, then these noti cations are removed from the selection.

In the revision work area, if the revision selection involves revisions for which the user has insufficient authorization, then
such revisions are removed from the selection.

If a revision has one or more noti cations assigned to it and the user does not have authorization to view all the
noti cations then those noti cations are not shown below the revision. The same happens for orders below a revision.
Such revisions which have partial data are always seen in display mode. No further planning can be done by the user on
these revisions.

In the planning board, the unauthorized revisions and technical objects cannot be seen.

Features
Subcontracting

Subcontracting provides you with a process to subcontract serialized and unserialized rework parts. A service provider
receives a part (rotable) for maintenance or repair from a customer. The service provider places the part in stock in an
unserviceable condition and sends the part to a subcontractor for repair, refurbishment, or overhaul. Once the work is
complete, the subcontractor returns the part to stock in a serviceable condition to the service provider, who sends it
back to the customer. For more information, see Subcontracting for MRO Processes.

Forward exchange

If a service provider urgently needs to get a repaired part from the subcontractor and is not able to send the
unserviceable parts to the subcontractor before he needs/receives the replacement part, the subcontractor
sends a serviceable part from his own stock directly to the service provider. The unserviceable part is sent to the
subcontractor at a later point in time, who then repairs it and adds it to his own stock. You can monitor forward
exchange using the A&D subcontracting monitor (transaction ADSUBCON). For more information, see Forward
Exchange.

MIGO

You can use the goods movement transaction MIGO for A&D subcontracting goods movements.

Serialization

This is custom documentation. For more information, please visit the SAP Help Portal 22
6/11/2019
You can now serialize stock transport items and subcontracting items within purchase orders and purchase
requisitions. The serialization takes place at schedule line level and refers to the main component (MPI set to
'rework material'), not to the item.

Note that DIMP 6.0 customers who implement the enterprise business function LOG_MM_SERNO will notice
interface changes. The Spec 2000/SC tab page is replaced by the tab Subcontracting page and the serial
number assignment function appears on the Schedule Line tab page instead of the Spec 2000/SC tab page.

For more information, see Serial Number Management in Subcontract Purchase Orders and Purchase
Requisitions.

The special stocks 'project stock' and 'sales order stock' can be valuated.

Partial delivery

It is possible to have multiple goods issues (partial deliveries) with or without outbound deliveries.

Multiple goods issue with outbound deliveries

The components of a subcontracting purchase order (including the forward exchange variant) can be
issued in multiple outbound deliveries and their goods movements. The transaction ADSUBCON supports
the process by proposing (remaining) quantities and serial numbers.

Multiple goods issue without outbound deliveries

The components of a subcontracting purchase order (including the forward exchange variant) can be
issued in multiple goods movements. The transaction ADSUBCON supports the process by proposing
(remaining) quantities and serial numbers. For forward exchange, note that all possible serial numbers
appear in the serial number popup, even those that have already been assigned to outbound deliveries.
You must check which serial numbers have already been assigned and manually remove them from the
selection list.

Return material authorization (RMA) orders

RMA orders are created from repair orders in sales and distribution as part of the returns and repairs process.
The standard returns and repairs process has been adapted for A&D subcontracting. For more information, see
RMA Orders in Subcontracting.

Enhancements to purchasing in subcontracting

Purchase requisition update after changes in PM/CS order

Changes in PM/CS order are now re ected in the corresponding purchase requisition. All changes must be
applied while the purchase order is not created (purchase order created from the purchase requisition).

Synchronization of purchase order item account assignments and special stock indicator

Purchase order item account assignments in project or sales orders are now automatically synchronized
with the special stock indicator for sales order stock and project stock on the Subcontracting tab page (in
ME21N).

You can now use refurbishment orders in the subcontracting process. Until now, an integrated refurbishment process, that is,
one that integrates refurbishment orders with subcontracting purchase requisitions and subcontracting purchase orders, was
not supported. Now, to enable a business process in which internal and external repair tasks can be combined if necessary, the
refurbishment order has been enhanced. The refurbishment order corresponds to the standard maintenance order type PM04.

The following component repair/refurbishment scenarios are supported:

Standard repair

Replacement

Unit exchange

Planned modi cation

Unplanned modi cation (DIMP only)

Various movement types

The subcontracting process shall be supported for refurbishment orders that use transfer postings (313/315) as well as
standard goods receipt and goods issue component movement types (101/261).

Various special stock types

Beside company own stock (normal stock) subcontracting from refurbishment order must be available for the following
stock types:

Customer stock (B) (DIMP only) (material that belongs to a customer)

Project stock (Q) (company own stock or customer stock linked to a project)

Orders on hand (E) (material related to a speci c customer order)

The following are not supported:

Forward exchange

Consignment vendor (K)

Returnable transportation package vendor (M)

Conversion of Planned Orders

Converting planned orders to refurbishment orders: Spare parts can be repaired or refurbished in an inhouse workshop by
creating a refurbishment order. It was already possible to create a refurbishment order from the stock requirement list. It has
been enhanced so you can select serial numbers during the conversion and transfer them to the refurbishment order.

Converting planned orders to purchase requisition for subcontracted repairs: Spare parts can be repaired or refurbished by a
subcontractor. The subcontracting purchase requisition for a repair can now already be used during the conversion. Serial
numbers can also be selected during the conversion and transferred to the purchase requisition.

Creating purchase requisitions from material requirements planning (MRP): Now, subcontracting purchase requisitions for
repair can now be created during the MRP run.

Stock Determination

There are improved stock determination functions that allow planners to reexamine the stock situation between order creation
and order release, if necessary. Previously, the stock determination function worked only during the creation of the maintenance
or service order.

Takeover/Handover of Technical Objects

In asset-intensive industries, complex technical objects, for example aircraft, engines, or serialized components, and their
con guration are carefully tracked and monitored throughout their life cycle. This is done to ensure safety and to prove
compliance to the authorities. During their life cycle the technical objects are moved between various business partners, for
example, if they are sold or repaired. If receiving business partners needs to keep track of con guration changes and ensure
punctual completion of required maintenance tasks, they must set up a detailed technical object structure in their IT systems
and de ne all applicable maintenance requirements for the technical object and its subordinate components. This could be for a
complete new aircraft or a set of repaired components. Handover/takeover of technical objects supports the user in setting up
the data for a new, used, or repaired technical object in the SAP ERP system.

Handover and takeover are carried out on a single user interface. This is bene cial because:

The user needs less time to set up the data

Reduced probability of errors

Easy hand-over between responsible roles

Clear visibility of phase-in progress/status at any time

Electronic Data Transfer (EDT)

The takeover application enables an efficient data set up process (for example, using an XML le) for a new, used or repaired
technical object in the ERP system within a single user interface.

The handover application allows the user to generate a le that enables a more efficient data exchange, and to trigger
subsequent actions when sending a technical object to a business partner. Handover includes the following functions:

Creation of master data

Creation of technical object structures

Creation/update of maintenance plans

Scheduling of maintenance plans

Process noti cations

supervisor, see Enterprise Asset Management Part 2.

Digital Signature for Orders

This speeds up the sign-off process and provides for accountability. The digital signatures function for maintenance order
operations is accessed from the detailed view of operation data. For more information, see Working with Digital Signatures.

Measurement Reading Transfer for Technical Objects

You can de ne customer-speci c relationships for measurement readings for technical objects using BAdI
MP_TRANSFER_RELATION. You can de ne ambiguous measurement reading transfers relationships within a technical object in
such a way as to make them unambiguous.

Change Control of Shop Papers

You can de ne status control for shop papers. You can track whether printed shop papers are up to date. If a maintenance order
or operation is changed after the shop papers have been printed, the system displays a status that shows this. The system also
ensures that technical completion of the order is not possible in this case until the shop papers have been printed again.

Addition

The Takeover/Handover of Technical Objects application supports the electronic exchange of a technical object structure (for
example, a jet engine) with a business partner by generating an XML le which consists of the object structure, while at the
same time executing a number of follow-up activities related to the asset in your ERP system. The generated XML document is
'handed over' to the business partner who then 'takes over' the technical objects. You can use this business function to enhance
your portfolio of takeover/handover enhancements.

Prerequisites
You have installed the following components as of the version mentioned:

Software Component EA-APPL

Portal Content Business Package for Takeover/Handover of Technical Objects 1.51

Features
Enablement of Unique Item Identi ers

Unique item identi ers (UII) can be used to uniquely identify technical objects.

Update Equipment That Are Not BOM Headers

Previously, existing equipment for which equipment BOM header data was not entered in database tables EQST and STKO could
not be converted into equipment BOM headers using the update function within the takeover update process, even if BOM
items were assigned to the equipment. This led to the situation that the subordinate BOM items (either inserted manually or
coming from the XML le) could not be created. Existing equipment which are not BOM headers can now be converted into
equipment BOM headers by choosing Update during the takeover update process even if BOM items are assigned to the
equipment in the working area. For example, if a new BOM item is manually inserted beneath a piece of equipment which is not
a BOM header, the superordinate equipment becomes the BOM header upon creation of this new BOM item.

Improved Handling of BAPI Messages

This is custom documentation. For more information, please visit the SAP Help Portal 32
6/11/2019
Even if a BAPI runs successfully, it may still return many information messages. You now have more options for handling these
messages. There is a new indicator Basic Log Detail Level in the Select Takeover Pro le area of the takeover selection screen.
If you set this indicator the messages are handled as follows:

If a BAPI ran successfully, only one message is returned stating that the BAPI has run successfully.

If the BAPI did not run successfully, only error messages coming from the BAPI (without success or information
messages) are returned.

Material Number Update

In a subcontracting scenario, a subcontractor may exchange the material number of an existing piece of equipment (a material
number upgrade), but the equipment number (physical equipment) remains the same. During the takeover process, the
application can now recognize that only the material number has been exchanged and triggers an update of the piece of
equipment instead of identifying the object as a new piece of equipment which is to be created. To do this, the takeover le must
contain the information about the previous material number.

 Example
1. Handover of equipment ʻ123’, material ʻA’, serial number ʻS1’

2. Subcontractor changes material number from ʻA’ to ʻB’

3. Handover at subcontractor's site: handover le (e.g. XML le) contains the information equipment ʻ888’
(subcontractor’s own ID), previous material number ʻA’, ʻexternal’ material number ʻB’, serial number ʻS1’

4. Takeover identi es equipment ʻ123’ by searching with material ʻA’ and serial number ʻS1’ -> no new equipment is
created.

Long Material Number

Long material numbers can be used in the following scenarios:

During handover, you can now send 40-digit material numbers in the XML le.

The takeover application can now handle 40-digit material numbers in the XML le.

The takeover application enables you to do the mapping during upload using customer own logic by implementing BAdI
BADI_PHIN_DATA_PREPARE, or by manual maintenance of this data after uploading the XML le.

Measuring Points

When technical objects are deactivated during handover or re(activated) during takeover, you can now simultaneously
activate/deactivate the measuring the measuring points assigned to the technical objects (functional locations and
equipment).

Customer-Speci c Checks

BAdI 'BADI_PHIN_CHECK_TOP_OBJECT' is available for implementing additional customer-speci c checks. When an existing
technical object is speci ed for handover or takeover (when loading current state/template), the system performs some
checks, for example if the technical object is the top hierarchy node. You can use this BAdI to implement further additional
checks to guarantee the technical object is ready for handover or takeover.

Specify Technical Objects Using Multiple Serial Numbers

This is custom documentation. For more information, please visit the SAP Help Portal 33
6/11/2019
You can now use multiple serial numbers to specify technical objects on the handover/takeover (current state) selection screen
in the same way as equipment. Until now, you could only specify a single serial number.

Enhanced Functions for Expanding/Collapsing Technical Object Hierarchy

You can now expand and collapse the hierarchy either by one level or completely. Note that you may encounter performance
problems if the hierarchy contains a large number of objects.

Possibility to Select Maintenance Plans To Be Copied When Using Copy References To Create Technical Objects

On the Create Maintenance Plan tab page, there is a new button Show MPs for Object. On the Maintenance Plans for Copy
Reference Object screen, the bottom screen area is new. There is a new BAdI BADI_PHIN_CUST_LOGIC_2 for calculating validity.

Restart Maintenance Plans

Previously you could only activate, deactivate, and schedule maintenance plans. You can now also restart them. There is an
additional button Restart MP on the Schedule MP tab page.

Simpli ed Status Management

Status handling has been simpli ed.

Inspection Rounds

The process for overall con rmation has been enhanced. If you do an overall con rmation at the end of an inspection round, in
this con rmation you can create a noti cation directly from a technical object that is assigned to an operation. You can also
change a noti cation that already exists for a technical object.

There is an example implementation for Business Add-In (BAdI) IMRC_CHECK_RDGS. This shows how an error message is
issued when the tolerance limits for measurement readings are exceeded.

For more information, see Inspection Rounds.

MDM Catalog Connection

If you connect to an MDM catalog when processing maintenance orders, you can copy service structures with complex
hierarchies from the MDM catalog to the maintenance orders.

Enhancements to Maintenance Order BAPIs

BAPI BAPI_ALM_ORDER_MAINTAIN, which is used to process maintenance and service orders, has been enhanced to support
refurbishment orders (maintenance order type PM04) and to enable the creation of suborders. BAPI
BAPI_ALM_ORDER_GET_DETAIL, which reads maintenance and service order data, has also been enhanced to read
refurbishment order speci c data.

These enhancements allow partners and customers to provide simpli ed user interfaces for complex inspection and repair
processes by allowing them to build speci c applications on top of standard maintenance and refurbishment order processes.
These enhancements also facilitate the development of Enterprise Services to support inspection and repair activities.

BAPIs for the Installation and Removal of Non-Serialized BOM Items With or Without Goods Movement

The BAPIs BAPI_IE4N_DISMANTLE and BAPI_IE4N_INSTALL have been developed to make it is possible to remove a non-
serialized material from the BOM header of a piece of equipment and to install a non-serialized material into the BOM header of
a piece of equipment without any user interaction required in transaction IE4N.

These BAPIs have been developed in order to facilitate the development of Enterprise Services.

Innovations in Maintenance Cost Budgeting

Following are the features available from the perspective of the type of master data that the extractor can handle:

Extracting maintenance plans that creates noti cation as call object

Extracting details from hierarchical task list as well as maintenance plans that use hierarchical task list

Retracting the approved budget back to the ERP system, and allow the planner to review these details along with cost
incurred to maintain the technical object, while planning and processing the order

Extracting simulated costs to extract detailed data on maintenance costs at operation level, which can also extract
simulated material requirements, including the period during which these requirements may occur

Extracting simulated costs includes the service master, the work center along with its plant, controlling activities, and
the efforts required to perform tasks

Enhancements to BAPIs for Maintenance Plan Scheduling

API functions have been developed for the scheduling of maintenance plans. These APIs provide the same functions as
transaction IP10: the creation of maintenance calls or the changing of existing maintenance calls.

Enhancements to Measurement Documents and Measuring Points

The new API MEASUREM_DOCUM_RFC_CANCEL enables partners and customers to cancel measurement documents in
their own developments. This API makes the same checks and calculations as the APIs that are executed when setting
the reversal indicator in transaction IK12 (Change Measurement Document). There is no API for reactivating a
cancelled measurement document. If you want this, create a new measurement document.

You can use BAdI DISABLE_RESET_REVERS_IND to disable the function for resetting the reversal indicator for
measurement documents.

Customer enhancements converted to BAdIs

To enable partners to extend the existing solution and provide default implementations, the following customer
enhancements have been converted to BAdIs. These BAdIs have the same functions as the existing customer
enhancements:

IMRC0001: MeasPoint/MeasDoc: Exit before update (after COMMIT WORK) = BAdI: Filling of Customer Fields for
Measuring Points and Documents

IMRC0002: MeasPoint: Menu exit for customer-speci c function = BAdI: Additional Function Code in Measuring
Point Transactions

IMRC0003: MeasDoc: Menu exit for customer-speci c function = BAdI: Additional Function Code in Measurement
Document Transactions

IMRC0005: Measure point: Exit in AUTHORITY_CHECK_IMPT = BAdI: Additional Authority Checks for Measuring
Points

Change Documents for Maintenance Plan Scheduling

In the airline industry, for example, it is important to be able to trace the changes made in the handling of maintenance plans,
especially in the scheduling of them. You can use change documents to trace and document the following actions for
maintenance plan scheduling:

Start/restart/start in cycle

If you do not want to make any customer-speci c settings for the network graphics, the system displays the networks according
to the SAP standard pro les.

Assigning Network Attributes

You can store additional information about your object networks in attribute properties and values. In Customizing for Linear
Asset Management, you de ne network attributes and their properties with valid values and assign them to categories. A
network attribute category is valid for certain object networks if it is assigned to the appropriate network type. This enables you
to store different attribute values for rail networks and road networks, for example.

To analyze the network attribute data, you can use a special report to select object networks according to criteria such as
network attribute categories or even speci c attribute values. This way you can, for example, list the network attribute data for
all object networks that are assigned to the network attribute category Rail or whose tracks were installed during a certain time
period.

For more information, see Assigning Network Attributes.

List Reports for Object Networks

There are various list reports for analyzing the object network data. You can display the data selected in the reports in a
graphic.

Multi-level lists provide you with the following structured information for each network:

Attribute values that are assigned to the networks

Object links that belong to the selected networks

Functional locations or pieces of equipment that belong to the object links

Maintenance orders and noti cations, as well as measuring points and measurement documents that are
assigned to each functional location or piece of equipment.

Linear Data for All Technical Objects

You can go from the multi-level lists to the transactions for the network modeler, for the master data for the technical
objects, and for recording network attribute values.

Overview lists for networks combine network data for all object networks that, for example, belong to a speci c network
type or network group, or have that have certain linear data in common. The data displayed for each object network is

the data you speci ed at header level during network modeling. For each network in the list, you can display the graphic
and go to the transactions for displaying or processing the networks.

You can use the new Business Add-In (BAdI) BADI_EAM_RIINET30_FCODE_CUS1 to activate a customer-speci c
function code that is available in the results list as a pushbutton and as an entry in the Environment menu.

The existing reports for the object links have been enhanced so that you can select according to linear data and display
the linear data in the results list.

For more information, see List Reports for Object Networks.

Enhanced Archiving for Object Links

There are new archiving objects and archiving programs for archiving linear network data and their attribute values:

The archiving object for object links PM_NET has been enhanced so that it now enables you to archive linear data and
additional object link data such as node types and edge types.

To archive object network data, you can use the new archiving object EAML_NETW and the corresponding write program,
delete program, and read (archive) program. To extend the scope of archiving, you can use the new Business Add-Ins
(BAdIs) ARC_EAML_NETW_CHECK , ARC_EAML_NETW_WRITE, and ARC_EAML_NETW_DELETE.

To archive network attribute data, you can use the new archiving object EAML_EVT and the corresponding write
program, delete program, and read (archive) program.

To extend the scope of archiving when archiving object links, you can use the new BAdIs ARC_PM_NET_CHECK,
ARC_PM_NET_WRITE, and ARC_PM_NET_DELETE.

For more information, see Archiving Object Link Data and Object Network Data.

Personalizing the Web UI

Users typically work with tabular overviews to process data in maintenance documents, such as costs and operation data in
orders and malfunction and activity data in noti cations. Being able to create personalized views for the tabular lists of orders,
noti cations, task lists, and maintenance plans makes it easier to search for and process maintenance data speci cally relevant
for you. You can personalize the table by displaying and hiding table columns as well as sorting, ltering, and grouping the table
entries. You can then save your personal settings as your own view. In addition, you can have the system highlight search results
in the list as well as add up the table entries in numeric table columns, and you can export the table to a spreadsheet.

For more information, see Personalizing the Web UI.

Quickviews

When processing maintenance documents, it is often necessary to access information about linked documents, technical
objects, materials, or long texts. Up to now, the only way to access this information was by navigating to the corresponding
objects in the system. On the SAP Web UI for Plant Maintenance, this business function provides quickviews that display
essential information about each object when you hover over it. In the quickview for a piece of equipment, for example, the
category, manufacturer, location, and status information are displayed as well as a link to the functional location where it is
installed. You can con gure each individual quickview to display certain information for the users.

For more information, see Quickviews.

Work Overview, Master Data Overview, and POWL

The Order and Noti cation Information Center provides an optimized work overview for processing orders and noti cations. In
this work overview you have extended search options, you can personalize your list and create different views, and you can
display your favorites as well as the most recently accessed orders and noti cations. In addition, there is a separate work area
for accessing orders and noti cations directly. To process technical objects, you can use the Information Center in the Master
Data Overview.

In the Order and Noti cation List (POWL) you were already able to process orders and noti cations from your personal worklist.
However, only a limited amount of selection criteria for con guring this list was available. With this business function, you can
use additional selection criteria for con guring your own personal worklist. This business function also enables you to display
table columns in the Order and Noti cation List for monitoring costs and dates and to use side panels to access further
information about maintenance documents and materials. You can also set all the available system statuses for orders and
noti cations in this list.

For more information, see Working with Personal Object Worklists (POWL).

Structure List for Technical Objects

You can display structure lists for any technical objects that are part of a hierarchy. Structure lists not only make it easier to nd
technical objects and materials in orders, noti cations, task lists, and maintenance plans, but they also provide essential
information about the technical objects and components. You can also use the structure list in the operation details to assign
materials to order operations.

For more information, see Selection of Technical Objects from the Structure List.

Setting Additional System Statuses in Orders and Noti cations

Up to now, some of the system statuses that you were able to set in the SAP GUI transactions for orders and noti cations could
only be displayed on the SAP Web UI for Plant Maintenance. With this business function, you can change the system status in
orders, noti cations, and in the Order and Noti cation List as follows:

Maintenance Order: Do not execute, Complete (Business), Cancel business completion, Lock, Unlock, Set Deletion
Flag, Reset Deletion Flag

Features
Creating Follow-On Orders

You can create maintenance orders as follow-on orders for an order or order operation. When you create a follow-on order, you
create a relationship to the reference order or operation. You can display this relationship in the document ow of the
corresponding SAP GUI transactions. You can create follow-on orders either directly from the work overview (Create Order) or
whilst you are displaying, changing, or con rming an order. You can display the relationship between the preceding order and
the follow-on order in a list in the document ow of the corresponding GUI transactions.

When you create a new order as a follow-on order for an existing order, the system copies the header data of the existing order
to the new order. You can use checkboxes to specify whether the system should also copy operation data, components,
relationships, document links, settlement rules, and order descriptions to the follow-on order.

When you change or display an order, there are new symbols that show you whether a follow-on order or a preceding order
exists for the corresponding order.

Note
You can only display the relationship between the preceding and the follow-on order if you have activated either the business
function Enterprise Asset Management Part 6 (LOG_EAM_CI_6) or Enterprise Asset Management Part 7 (LOG_EAM_CI_7)
and are thus using the enhanced document ow for maintenance orders.

You can also create follow-on orders with the BAPI BAPI_ALM_ORDER_MAINTAIN.

You can only create follow-on orders for orders that have been released.

If you wish to allow follow-on orders to be created directly from the con rmation, you have to create a new PFCG role based
on the SAP standard role Maintenance Worker (SAP_COCKPIT_EAMS_MAINT_WORKER2) and add the object-based
navigation target Create Order. You must also grant the respective users the authorization for creating orders so they can
create follow-on orders in con rmations.

For more information, see Creating an Order with Reference and Creating a Follow-On Order.

Improved UI for User Status on Header Level

An enhanced user interface (UI) is available for setting the user status on header level in maintenance orders, maintenance
noti cations, and technical objects. All the user statuses that have been entered in the corresponding status pro le are listed in
the drop-down list for the new Set User Status pushbutton. In this list you can set a user status and even reset it, if allowed.

This is custom documentation. For more information, please visit the SAP Help Portal 64
6/11/2019
For more information, see Maintenance Order, Maintenance Noti cation and Technical Objects on the Web User Interface (PM-
EQM).

Changing the Noti cation Type

You can use this function to allow changes to be made to the noti cation type when maintenance noti cations are created or
changed on the SAP Web UI. In Customizing you can specify which target noti cation types are allowed for which original
noti cation types, so that when users change maintenance noti cations, they can only change the noti cation type entered to
one you have allowed. The original noti cation type and the target noti cation type must have the same noti cation category. In
addition, you can only change the noti cation type of maintenance noti cations if the noti cation has not yet been completed.

When the noti cation type is changed, the system does not assign a new noti cation number and all data of the original
noti cation type is retained (such as reference objects). This also applies even if speci c data is irrelevant for the target
noti cation type. To override this behavior, implement the Business Add-In (BAdI) Checks for Extended Change of Noti cation
Type (BADI_IQS0_NOTIF_TYPE_CHANGE).

Note
If you wish to be able to change the noti cation type on the Web UI, you have to allow the change of noti cation types in the
SAP GUI transactions as well (iw21, iw22, iw51, and iw52). To do this, activate the business function Enterprise Asset
Management Part 7 (LOG_EAM_CI_7).

For more information, see Changing the Noti cation Type.

Documents and Long Texts of Noti cation Codes

Codes ensure that issues can be entered in a standardized way and therefore be evaluated automatically. In Plant Maintenance,
codes describe damage and malfunctions, the causes of the damage as well as its maintenance and repair, all of which is
entered as technical ndings in the plant maintenance history.

You can use this function to copy long texts and documents attached to codes, which you assign during noti cation processing,
to the corresponding maintenance noti cations. If the damage codes, cause codes, activity codes, and task codes you selected
have long texts or documents stored in Customizing, you can copy them to the noti cation. The system copies the long text of
the code to the Long Text column and stores any documents assigned to the code on the Documents tab page.

For more information, see Working with Noti cation Codes.

Adding Objects to the Object List of a Maintenance Order

When you create or change a maintenance order, you can assign maintenance noti cations, technical objects, assemblies,
materials, and serial numbers. Up to now, the object list on the SAP Web UI only displayed the header noti cation and all the
objects that had been assigned to that maintenance order on the Objects tab page in the relevant SAP GUI transactions. With
this product feature, you can now add and remove objects directly on the Object List tab page. This means that technical
objects, assemblies, materials, and serial numbers are assigned to the maintenance order on header level.

For more information, see Maintenance Order.

Displaying Maintenance Plan Call Information in Order List, and Order and Operation List in the Web UI

You can list the maintenance plan call number, call status, completion date, call date, and planned date of maintenance plan
scheduled calls in the Order List, and Order and Noti cation List worklists in the Order and Noti cation Information Center
application.

You can open this application in the SAP NetWeaver Business Client, with the Work Overview menu item.

This feature enables maintenance planners to easily compare the dates of the order and the dates of the relevant maintenance
call, to prove that all obligatory maintenance activities have been started before or on the date speci ed in the maintenance
plan. If an accident happens, this can prove that the company has done every precaution, and therefore legally is not at fault.

Displaying PM Activity Type in Noti cation in the Web UI

You can set the PM Activity Type parameter for maintenance plans and noti cations. Previously this parameter was only
available for orders. With this new feature, if you set the PM Activity Type for a maintenance plan, and then that plan generates
a noti cation, the new noti cation inherits the set PM Activity Type. If you create a new order for a noti cation with a set PM
Activity Type, the new order inherits this attribute.

Safety Measure List

The safety measure list allows you to classify standard objects in your enterprise asset management (EAM) system such as
documents, permits, task lists, and production resources/tools as safety measures. In this way, you can create a list of safety-
relevant objects from the total of all available objects. By assigning these safety-relevant objects in maintenance orders and
task lists, you can make safety information transparently and consistently available during the planning and execution of safety-
critical maintenance activities.

Safety Plan

The safety plan ensures that safety is transparently, consistently, and comprehensively considered during maintenance planning
and execution. Those responsible for planning maintenance can use the safety plan to ensure that all the safety measures
required to mitigate identi ed risks are assigned in maintenance orders and maintenance task lists. All the information
contained in the safety plan is output as part of the job card so that the maintenance workers responsible for maintenance
execution are aware of all safety issues and can ensure that they have taken all the required safety measures.

Risk Management System Integration

By integrating a risk management system such as SAP BusinessObjects Risk Management, you can connect the data in your
EAM system (for example, technical objects, task lists, documents, and materials) with expertly-assessed risks and responses.
In this way, maintenance planners have targeted information about potential risks and the appropriate responses available to
them during planning.

SAP_APPL 604

Features
Mass Change of Maintenance Plans and Items

In list editing for maintenance plans and maintenance items (transactions ip15 and ip17), you can carry out mass data
changes for one or more selected maintenance plans or items. You choose the elds for the mass change in a popup and enter
the appropriate values. You can also de ne that only speci c eld values should be replaced by new eld values. The system
displays in which documents the mass change could be successfully carried out.

The business add-ins (BAdIs) BAdI: Mass Change of Maintenance Plan Header Data (MPLAN_HEADER_MASS_CHANGE) and
BAdI: Mass Change of Maintenance Items (MPLAN_ITEM_MASS_CHANGE) are available for making customer-speci c
enhancements to the mass data change function.

For more information, see Mass Change of Maintenance Plan Data and Mass Change of Maintenance Item Data.

Changing the Noti cation Type

Up to now, it was only possible to change the noti cation type for general noti cations and quality noti cations. To be able to
change the noti cation type in quality noti cations, the business function QM, Extensions in Quality Control and Quality
Noti cation (OPS_QM_EXTENSION_3) must be activated.

The business function Enterprise Asset Management Part 7 (LOG_EAM_CI_7) now enables you to allow users to change the
noti cation type when creating and changing maintenance and service noti cations (transactions iw21, iw22, iw51, and
iw52). In Customizing you can specify which target noti cation types are allowed for which original noti cation types, so that
when users change maintenance and service noti cations, they can only change the noti cation type entered to one you have
allowed. The original noti cation type and the target noti cation type must have the same noti cation category. In addition, you
can only change the noti cation type of maintenance and service noti cations if the noti cation has not yet been completed.

When the noti cation type is changed, the system does not assign a new noti cation number and all data of the original
noti cation type is retained (such as reference objects). This also applies even if speci c data is irrelevant for the target
noti cation type. To override this behavior, implement the Business Add-In (BAdI) Checks for Extended Change of Noti cation
Type (BADI_IQS0_NOTIF_TYPE_CHANGE).

For more information, see Changing the Noti cation Type.

New Row Counter in ALV Lists

You can display the number of entries listed in Plant Maintenance and Quality Management reports. If you choose to display the
Count. (counter) table column, the system displays the total number of displayed entries in a separate row at the beginning or
at the end of the table, as well as above the table. When you select a table column and group according to the values in that
column by choosing Subtotal, the system displays the total number of entries as well as the subtotals for each group in the
Count. table column. This function is only available in ALV lists.

Creating Follow-On Orders

This is custom documentation. For more information, please visit the SAP Help Portal 79
6/11/2019
You can create maintenance orders as follow-on orders for an order or order operation. When you create a follow-on order, you
create a relationship to the reference order or operation and you can display this relationship in the document ow. You can
create follow-on orders directly (transaction iw31), when changing or displaying an order (transactions iw32 and iw33), or
when creating a con rmation (transaction iw41). In order processing, appropriate pushbuttons show you whether the
respective order has a preceding or follow-on order. You can display the relationship between the preceding order and the
follow-on order in a hierarchical structure.

When you create a new order as a follow-on order for an existing order, the system copies some header data to the new order.
You can use checkboxes to specify whether the system should also copy operation data, components, relationships, settlement
rules, and document links to the follow-on order.

Note
You can only display this relationship between preceding and follow-on orders if you are using the enhanced document ow
functions in the maintenance order. The enhanced document ow has been integrated into this business function, but is also
part of the business function Enterprise Asset Management Part 6 (LOG_EAM_CI_6).

You can also create follow-on orders with the BAPI BAPI_ALM_ORDER_MAINTAIN.

You can only create follow-on orders for orders that have been released.

If you have de ned view pro les and assigned them to the appropriate order types in Customizing, you can display and edit
maintenance orders in the simple order view. You cannot, however, create follow-on orders from the simple order view and
the system does not display whether the respective order already has preceding or follow-on orders.

For more information, see Creating Follow-On Orders.

Preprinting and Reprinting Maintenance Orders

You can print shop papers before the maintenance order is released and after it is completed. If you allow shop papers to be
preprinted and reprinted by making the appropriate Customizing settings, you can print shop papers for orders that have the
status created or technically completed, for example. The printing status in the order tells you if the shop papers belonging to
the maintenance order and operations have been preprinted, printed, or reprinted. This function is available in the SAP GUI
transactions and on the SAP Web UI for Plant Maintenance.

For more information, see Preprinting and Reprinting Maintenance Orders.

Additional Order Statuses in Order List

You can set the statuses Cancel Technical Completion and Do not execute for one or more orders in the order and operation
lists (transactions iw38 and iw37n).
