Enterprise Asset Management (SAP EAM)

133 Posts

The Focus topic in customer connection for Enterprise Asset Management was definined in the following way:

 

The SAP EAM solution helps organizations efficiently and sustainably manage the whole lifecycle of physical assets. Tools for managing production equipment, roads, machinery, vehicles, facilities, and power grids can help customers reduce operating costs, minimize risk, and manage capital expenditures more effectively.

 

In this Customer Connection project we will focus on longtime requested improvements in the area of EAM Plant Maintenance. Down-ports in releases older than EHP4 are out-of-scope!

 

Now we are happy to announce the first bundle of improvements is planned to be delivered by the end of January with the EhP7 SP07.

Please notice that EhP7 SP07 contains 7 EAM Plant Maintenance improvements. Downport activities to EhP4-6 will take place in Q1/Q2 2015 where technically possible.

 

Remaining improvements are planned to be delivered with EhP7 SP08 approximately in April/May 2015.

Thank you very much for your contributions and collaboration.


Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) master data is rated as one of the topics of highest concern if not the highest by our customers. In the EAM domain there are a large number of often complex master data objects adding to the scope of the challenge. EAM master data is mainly in SAP Plant Maintenance (SAP PM) module but also extends to Bills of Materials (BOM's), Work Centers etc.


In 2010 the analyst group ARC published a series of 3 white papers on Asset Information Management. In part one, ARC estimated that "poor asset information costs organizations 1.5% of sales revenue".

 

Master data issues can be due to a number of reasons:

 

  • During the project to build a new asset (e.g. mine, oil refinery, oil platform, power station etc.) master data is not the focus of the project team and the provision of information on the plant being built is often left to the last minute or there is little or no budget for this exercise. However, this leads to major problems down the road, during the operate and maintain phase. For example: missing spare parts information leads to someone having to pore over operating manuals or drawings to find the missing information. One customer recently told us that often they had to get the support of experienced technicians on the mine site to support them find the information, so taking them out of what they are meant to be doing - fixing the plant!
  • Once handed over to the operator there a number of situations which leads to asset information issues; here are a few examples:
    • Some companies allow everyone or a large number of users to create and change master data in the system (SAP PM). This leads to inconsistent numbering systems and naming conventions. One of our customers had more than 10 ways to name a haul truck.
    • Minor plant changes that are not kept up to date in the system, over time, leads to missing or inaccurate information that is not reliable. One of our customers had teams of contractors doing "plant walkdowns" to verify what they physically had in the field versus what they had in their system and vice versa.
    • Shutdowns, Turnarounds, De-bottlenecking and Campaigns often lead to large number of maintenance and modification tasks. Effective capture of "as built" information is essential to the ongoing accuracy of the plant system of record.


SAP in collaboration with our partners Utopia, has greatly simplified the challenge of asset master data management in SAP EAM by adding a suite of pre-configured master data governance (MDG) data objects for enterprise asset management. These objects are built upon the SAP Master Data Governance platform. The enterprise asset management extension includes preconfigured data structures, industry templates, best practices, workflows and user interfaces for EAM data objects. The first release covers the functional location and equipment master, with a comprehensive roadmap planned to add MRO bills of material (BOM), work centers, task lists, maintenance plans, measuring points, production resources, and object links.

 

The diagram below shows the typical process flow of master data change or creation with MDG.

If you are interested in digging deeper, you can find more information using the following links:


A complementary solution to MDG is our Rapid Deployment for Asset Data Quality. This solution is a "passive" approach to data governance where business rules highlight data issues (example of scorecard below) which can then be remedied via a change request using MDG or directly in SAP PM. In this solution we have shipped 55 pre-configured business rules around EAM data quality. The solution uses SAP Information Steward and SAP Data Services products.

As the title indicates, this post is to utilize the very useful user-exit IWO10009 for the purpose of preventing changes in Operation tab. In fact utilizing this exit for control over Components tab and Operation tab is not  straight forward, because here tables are involved, listing number of Components or number of Operations. For such requirements we need to know the respective program and the run-time memory (internal table). During such requirement in components tab by a member in the past, some research was done and the required program and the internal table were found to access the runtime memory of the program for Components tab. The program was SAPLCOBC and the internal table was RESB_BT . Using this information the control desired by the member was achieved and later this code was preserved in the post Specify conditions for Components in PM Order (User Exit IWO10009) .

 

In a similar way, recently one more member was asking for control over Operations tab, such as he should be able to Restrict changes in Operations tab once the Order has been released.

 

So things are similar, only thing is to know the Program and internal table corresponding to Operation tab. After I searched net, including SCN, I could get the information on this. The program is SAPLCOBO and the internal table is AFVG_BT. Once we knew this information a simple code (given below) in the include ZXWOCU07 of user-exit IWO10009, would prevent any changes in Operations tab after Order Release.

 

 

IF CAUFVD_IMP-IPHAS <> '0' AND SY-TCODE = 'IW32'.
 
   FIELD-SYMBOLS: <FS_AFVG> TYPE ANY.
 
   DATA: BEGIN OF I_AFVG OCCURS 100.
           INCLUDE STRUCTURE DFPS_AFVG_BT .
   DATA:END OF I_AFVG.
 
   ASSIGN ('(SAPLCOBO)AFVG_BT[]') TO <FS_AFVG>.
   I_AFVG[] = <FS_AFVG>.
 
   LOOP AT I_AFVG.
     IF I_AFVG-VBKZ <> ''.
       MESSAGE: 'Operation changes not permitted after Order release' TYPE 'E' DISPLAY LIKE 'I'.
     ENDIF.
   ENDLOOP.
  ENDIF.
















 

This throws the following pop-up error at the Save event, when user makes some changes in Operations tab.

error.JPG

 

There can be many deeper requirements for the users, to specify some conditions for changes in Operations tab, in stead of completely preventing changes. All these requirements will be now possible for an ABAPer by developing the above code. The key information is the program SAPLCOBO  and the internal table AFVG_BT  which has been already known to us.

 

 

Alternatively, a Function module to do the same job:

I was further researching and found a Function Module in this area to capture the runtime memory of the Operations tab. The FM is CO_BO_AFVGBT_GET.


So, I experimented and good results are there with the following code. This way we can make use of this FM to detect changes in specific fields of operations tab. In the later part of the following code this was illustrated through a field ARBEI (work involved in the activity).

 

 

IF CAUFVD_IMP-IPHAS <> '0' AND SY-TCODE = 'IW32'.
   DATA: VBKZ TYPE AFVGB-VBKZ.
 
   DATA: I_AFVC TYPE STANDARD TABLE OF VIAUF_AFVC,
         WA1 LIKE LINE OF I_AFVC.
 
   SELECT * FROM VIAUF_AFVC INTO TABLE I_AFVC WHERE AUFNR = CAUFVD_IMP-AUFNR.
 
 
   DATA: BEGIN OF I_AFVG OCCURS 100.
           INCLUDE STRUCTURE AFVGD.
   DATA:END OF I_AFVG.
 
   DATA: WA LIKE LINE OF I_AFVG.
 
   CALL FUNCTION 'CO_BO_AFVGBT_GET'
     EXPORTING
       AUFNR_IMP  = CAUFVD_IMP-AUFNR
     TABLES
       AFVGBT_EXP = I_AFVG[].
 
 
   LOOP AT I_AFVG.
     IF ( I_AFVG-PHFLG = '' AND I_AFVG-VSTTXT+0(3) = 'DLT' )
       OR
       I_AFVG-OBJNR+0(2) <> 'OV'.
       MESSAGE 'Operation addition /deletions not permitted after Order release' TYPE 'E' DISPLAY LIKE 'I'.
     ENDIF.
   ENDLOOP.
 
 
   LOOP AT I_AFVC INTO WA1.
     READ TABLE I_AFVG INTO WA WITH KEY AUFPL = WA1-AUFPL APLZL = WA1-APLZL.
     IF SY-SUBRC = 0.
       IF WA1-ARBEI <> WA-ARBEI.
         MESSAGE 'Operation changes not permitted after Order release' TYPE 'E' DISPLAY LIKE 'I'.
       ENDIF.
     ENDIF.
   ENDLOOP.
 
 ENDIF.





The code from line 23 to 29, detects any operation deletion / additions and throws an error pop-up that  'Operation addition /deletions not permitted after Order release' ,  whereas the code from lines 32 to 39 identifies any changes done to the ARBEI field (Work), and if so throws an error pop-up that  'Operation changes not permitted after Order release'


Thus this FM brings every field in the Operations tab to user control for use in the user-exit IWO10009. Hope users will be benefited with this post. The main objective of post like this as I use to say, is to preserve this recently acquired piece of knowledge at a place, to be able to find easily (even by me), whenever needed.

Update of this post on November 21st, 2014:

 

In my last series of blogs I described several new features which are available in Enterprise Asset Management.

 

 

This feature is not only available in WebUser Interface but also via the SAP GUI!


The following business functions need to be activated to use this functionality

  • LOG_EAM_CI4 (for Inspection Rounds, maintenance of technical objects on operation level)
  • LOG_EAM_SIMPLICITY_2
  • LOG_EAM_VE_INT

 

Availability

  • Release:
    • EHP5 SP10 / SP11 only SAP GUI supported, no WEB UI
    • EHP6 SP05 -  within the Web UI we support the processes
    • EHP6 SP07 / SP08 -  SAP GUI and WEB UI supported
    • EhP616 SP00 - Web UI supported
    • EhP616 SP02 - SAPGui supported
    • EHP7 SP00

 

 

What are the new features for the integration of visualization in EAM?

 

Transactions:

  • basically we enabled all Master data Transactions for Equipment / Functional Location and Serial Number to Display the Spare Parts Catalogue
  • All Task List types are enabled for Selection of Spare Parts and the Use of Visual Instructions
  • Work Order is enabled for Selection of Spare Parts and the Use of Visual Instructions (Basic Order View as well).

 

This visualization integration enables you to use the SAP 3D Visual Enterprise Viewer on the SAP Web user interface on in the traditional SAP GUI for Plant Maintenance to visualize technical objects, spare parts, and instructions.

 

Many of you already saw the visual work instructions, which show, step by step, based on a 3D model, how a repair activity should be performed. The user gets additional textual instructions and hints of tools.

 

Visual Work Instruction.jpg

 

In addition to the visual work instructions we implemented the possibility to pick spare parts directly from the 3D model and transfer these items into the component list, e.g. in the maintenance work order or in a task list.

 

Picking Components 3D.jpg

 

Customers often mentioned the concern, that they do not have the 3D models of the technical objects and therefore they cannot use this functionality.

 

We now integrated the possibility of tagging / hot spotting of 2D models and integrate them into the maintenance process. Based on this it is now possible to use drawings, tag them and provide the technicians this very important feature even without having the 3D models.

 

Picking Components 2D.png.jpg

 

See here a short video how this works:

2D_Graphical_spare_parts_selection

 

2D and 3D model views as well as visual work instructions make critical maintenance processes such as finding the spare parts you need and carrying out instructions quicker and easier!

 

A direct access to more information on these new EAM features is available via the innovation discovery tool. You can access the tool here:

 

I will continue to post such videos on new functionality in the near future or as soon as new features are available.

All these topics are bundled in the EhP7 Business Function “LOG_EAM_SIMPLICITY_3” and do not require any additional license on top of the existing enterprise foundation license.

 

What are the new features in this infocenter in EAM?

 

This feature enables the planner or supervisor working in the WebUI to work more easily with maintenance orders and notifications.

 

  • New possibility to get a quick overview on the ongoing tasks and activities in maintenance.
  • Different pre-defined lists for combined Order-/Notification list
  • Separate lists for Orders and Notifications
  • Possibility to create and save user specific list variants
  • Date monitor to track the progress and schedule of maintenance work

What is the new structured search help?

 

The following new functions on the SAP Web UI for Plant Maintenance are available now:

 

  • We implemented a new way of selecting technical objects and / or materials in the component list for the EAM process.
  • The user now have  the possibility, in the WebUI, to use a structure tree to find and select items.
  • He can find functional locations, equipments or assemblies in the structure of a technical object or material items within a Bill o Material.

 

This is a much easier way for the user to perform a search for the right item.

What is new for maintenance work orders?

 

The following new functions for processing maintenance orders on the SAP Web UI for Plant Maintenance are available now:

 

  • You can create and edit long texts directly in the operation data and in the operation details.
  • You can create orders using a template (reference order). When you create a new order by copying an existing order, you can specify whether you want to copy the relationships, settlement rules, linked documents, and order descriptions as well.
  • When you process an order, you can run a cost simulation.
  • You can create order operations by copying existing operations.
  • On the Operation Data tab, you can assign a new task list to the order. The assigned task list is displayed in the General Data.
  • You can assign materials using a catalog in the order operation details. An Open Catalog Interface (OCI) is provided for this.
  • You can assign technical objects and materials using a structure list.
  • You can set additional system statuses in the order that up to now you were only able to display. You can set these system statuses in the Order and
    Notification List as well.
  • For inspection rounds, you can assign technical objects and assemblies at operation level. In the operation details, you can enter measuring points as production resources/tools for the technical objects that you have assigned at operation level.

What are the new features for tables in EAM?

 

This feature enables you to work more easily with tabular lists in maintenance orders, notifications, task lists, and maintenance plans.

 

  • You can search for table entries and the search result is then highlighted in the list.
  • You can have the system add up the table entries in numeric table columns and export the tables to a spreadsheet.
  • You can personalize the view of the table by displaying and hiding the table columns, as well as sorting, grouping, and filtering the table entries and then save your personal
    settings as your own view

What kind of possibilities are there to personalize on user level?

 

As one example I want to mention the feature which enables the user to easily configure the screens to his specific needs, define default values or hide fields.

 

  • You can use current field values as default values 
  • You can hide fields not used or not relevant for the user.
  • You can hide complete groups of fields not used or not relevant for the user
  • You can prepopulate specific values you normally work with

Quickviews – what is behind it?

 

You are looking for an easy way to view important object information without leaving the actual screen?

 

On the SAP Web UI for Enterprise Asset Management you are now able to define so called “Quickviews” for maintenance documents, technical objects, materials, and long texts that are assigned to orders, notifications, task lists, and maintenance plans.

 

A Quickview is a read-only UI element which allows the user, at runtime, to view additional information (not displayed on the current screen) about an object without having to navigate to other screens. Like a tooltip, a Quickview appears (and disappears) on the UI during a mouse-over action by the user and shows the most important and/or most useful information regarding that object.

 

See here a short video which shows how this can look like:

 

QUICKVIEWS


Quickviews are available for the following Enterprise Asset Management objects:

  • Technical Objects (functional location / equipments)
    • Quickviews for the superior technical objects and the installed pieces of equipment
  • Notifications
    • Quickviews for the technical objects, the assigned orders, the activities and the long text
  • Maintenance Orders
    • Quickviews for the technical objects, the assigned notifications, the materials and the long texts
  • Maintenance Plans
    • Quickviews for the technical objects and the maintenance plan (on the General Data tab of the maintenance item)
  • Materials
  • Long Texts

 

Quickviews appear as separate windows during a “mouse over” and can provide information as well as links. 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.
