CS Terminologies
Maintenance Plants - Plant, in which the technical objects of a company are installed and where the actual maintenance is performed. Planning Plants - The planning plant is a plant where you define maintenance task lists, carry out materials planning on the basis of the BOMs in task lists and perform maintenance orders, manage and schedule maintenance plans, enter maintenance notifications and process maintenance orders for the associated maintenance plants. Functional Location - Organizational unit within a Maintenance plant where the technical objects of a company according to functional, process-oriented or spatial criteria are installed. A functional location represents the place at which a maintenance task is to be performed. Equipment Individual, physical object that is to be maintained as an autonomous unit.

Slide :


CS Terminologies
Maintenance Planner Grp. - A maintenance planning group (under a planning plant) may be an individual department (for central work preparation), a group of skilled craftsmen or a workshop. Serial Numbers When we need to transact (sell) the same type of Equipment, we use serialization technique. We create serial numbers for the material code associated with the equipment. It is basically an identification code for similar kind of Equipment. Work Centers - An organizational unit that defines where and when an operation should be carried out. Task Lists A set of operations (for a specific application) that have material components attached & work centers / control keys/ man-hours required etc. defined. Partner Functions - Partners (business partners) are internal and/or external organizational units. For Eg. internal partners can be logistics and sales departments that perform services whereas external partners can be customers as service recipients and vendors as supporting service providers. A partner can be a natural or a legal entity

CS Masters Required
Functional Location Master Master record of the customer functional locations under a maintenance plant, where the customer Equipment are installed Equipment Master Master record of all the Equipment sold to various customers Material Master Master record of all the material components used in customer Equipment sold to various customers Service Master Service in SAP is defined as a material that can be sold or purchased. The standard material type for service is DIEN. Service product is a service material with a task list (list of service operations) Customer Master Master record of all the Customers with all the relevant data

Slide :


CS Notifications & Service processing

Service notification describes a problem condition of a technical object at the customer site Process 1. Enter service notifications 2. Recognize the condition of the service object 3. Request the necessary service tasks and thereby plan further service processing 4. Track the progress of the tasks to be performed 5. Close the Notification with relevant data updated Different types of standard Notifications available in the system are

S1 - Problem Notification S2 - Activity report S3 - Service request

CS Notifications & Service processing

Slide :


CS Notifications & Service processing

Major steps Involved in Notification Creation

1. Create Notification (Type & Description) 2. TAB : Reference object (Equipment /Functional Location) Gets captured from the Equipment Master / FL Master Ship to Party / Customers Address: Gets captured from the Customer Master records 3. TAB : Items (Item code, Item Damage code, Item Cause Code) 4. TAB : Tasks (General Task Code) 5. TAB : Activities (General Activity Code) 6. TAB : Warranty (It shows the details of the Customer Warranty (copied from the Equipment Master Record) TAB : Malfunction Details (Malfunction start Date/Time) 8. Breakdown hours: Calculated by the system if the breakdown indicator is on. It is the total breakdown hours calculated between malfunction start and End date / time

Release the Notification (Notification put in Process) after all entries are made. Notification is closed after the tasks are completed.

CS Service Order processing

Service orders form an important part of the detailed planning of tasks and their accompanying documentation in Customer Service. A service order is raised(may be from the Notification itself) when there are costs involved by way of requirement of Spares or Manpower Order Type

The order type is a classification characteristic for orders. It consists of control information that is important for managing orders.
For example, the following order types are available in the standard system: SM01 for Service orders ( with revenues ) SM02 for Service orders ( Without revenues ) SM03 for Repair orders

Enter the Model Service Spec no 4. Check the Service Purchase Requisition no. generated Further Processing of Service PR Quotation from PR Price/Vendor ComparisonPO creationService Entry SheetOrder completion

Slide :


CS Service Billing
The following are the types of billing possible
1. A Sales Order can be generated directly from the service Notification and the customer can be billed. (generally Parts Sale identified as separate Revenue) 2. For ad-hoc calls, a sales order along with the Service order may be simultaneously created in the system through which a billing document is generated and the customer is billed. The service order is later settled against the Sales Document, if required. 3. For Warranty Sales, the Warranty service costs on the service order may be settled to the open Sales Order. 4. For service contracts like AMCs too, Sales Contract -> Periodic Billing process is followed. The Service Order costs may be settled against the Contract.

5. For Billing the Customer based on the Service Order Costs (Resources used), Resource Related Billing (RRB) is used.

CS Warranty Process
Commitment of the manufacturer, vendor, or retailer to guarantee services to a customer either free-of-charge or only charged in part, over a certain period of time The warranty check can be performed automatically by the system when processing customer notifications and billing requests The Customer Service component provides the following types of warranty: Time-bound warranties Counter-dependent warranties Warranties that are valid for periods of time and counter intervals

Slide :


CS Service planning
Planned maintenance is used to avoid system breakdowns or the breakdown of other objects, which - in addition to the repair costs - often result in much higher costs subsequently owing to production breakdown. Maintenance Planning consists of Maintenance item - A maintenance item describes which preventive maintenance tasks should take place regularly on a technical object or a group of technical objects. Maintenance Plan - The maintenance plan contains scheduling information from the following sources Maintenance Strategy - A maintenance strategy defines the rules for the sequence of planned maintenance work Maintenance cycle - The maintenance cycles and packages contain the time or performance condition when maintenance must be performed Scheduling parameters - use the scheduling parameters to adapt the scheduling process to meet your individual requirements. Maintenance Task list - Maintenance task lists describe a sequence of individual maintenance activities which must be performed repeatedly within a company Maintenance Objects - A list of objects which are assigned to a particular maintenance item.

CS Measuring point

Measuring points in the R/3 System describe the physical and/or logical locations at which a condition is described, (for example, the coolant temperature in a nuclear power station after the coolant has left the pressure vessel, or the number of revolutions at a rotor shaft of a wind-driven power plant). Counter is a type of measuring point where the measurement readings are cumulated or totalized Measurement readings describe a condition at a measuring point at a particular point in time, and represent the transaction data for measuring points in the R/3 System. They are documented in the form of measurement documents . Measurement documents are the documents that are created after the data is transferred to the R/3 system after a measurement has been taken at a measuring point or a counter.
