UNDERSTANDING MAXIMO AND SAP MAINTENANCE PART 5

Updated: Feb 25

This is a continuation of Understanding Maximo and SAP Maintenance series. If you missed the previous parts, you can check the links at the end of the post.


Maintenance Package


Maintenance Packages in SAP correspond to PM Frequency and Frequency Unit in addition to PM Sequence. We can visualize SAP Maintenance Packages as a table of possible frequencies as such:


Maintenance Package Description

1W 1 Week

2W 2 Weeks

3W 3 Weeks

1M 1 Month

2M 2 Months

3M 3 Months

4M 4 Months

5M 5 Months

6M 6 Months

7M 7 Months

8M 8 Months

9M 9 Months

10M 10 Months

11M 11 Months

1Y 1 Year


But in Maximo, there is no need to define such a list because the multiplication of the Frequency and the Frequency Unit can effectively provide you with all possible options. The point that we need to pay attention to is that Maximo also uses PM Sequence, which is a way to define Maintenance Strategy Hierarchy.


To calculate the Maximo equivalent of SAP Maintenance Package we must multiply the Frequency by the PM Sequence Interval. Using the previous method it is possible to accurately identify the resulting Maintenance Package.


Here is an example of how Maximo Frequency and Interval multiplication can be mapped to SAP Maintenance Package.



What's Next?


In the next post I will provide a basic field-to-field mapping between the two systems.
