Control Key influences system status

Introduction Control Key

Control Keys delivered via SET Content:

  •  YBM1 for order operations and suboperations that are processed internally
  •  YBM2 for order operations and suboperations that are processed externally

Starting with OP 2023, the confirmation setting of the control key is taken into account determining the system status Planned Work Finished (PWF) and the checkbox Has Open Main Work.

Control Key Influences System Status Planned Work Finished (PWF) and Checkbox "Has Open Main Work"

An advanced logic is applied to the determination of the system status Planned Work Finished:

  • YBM1 is configured for internal order operations. Posting a final confirmation is required. Consequently, internal order operations with this control key must have the system status Job Finished (JBFI) or Confirmed (CNF) before the system sets them to Planned Work Finished (PWF).
  • YBM2 is configured for external order operations. Posting a final time confirmation is allowed but not required. Consequently, external order operations with this control key only require goods receipts indicating the planned quantity to be posted (system status External Operation Delivered (EODL) before the system sets them to Planned Work Finished (PWF). However, if you have posted a partial time confirmation, the order operation will not be set to Planned Work Finished (PWF) before you have also posted a final time confirmation.

Control Key Influences System Status "Planned Work Finished" and Checkbox "Has Open Main Work"

  • The Has Open Main Work checkbox in the maintenance order header indicates whether an order still has unfinished operations with the execution stage MAIN.
  • The Has Open Main Work checkbox is automatically selected when a maintenance order is created. When the maintenance technicians or external service providers indicate that they have completed the internal or external work of an operation, the system sets the status Planned Work Finished (PWF) on that operation, and the operation moves to the Work Finished subphase.
  • Once all MAIN operations have the status Planned Work Finished, the system automatically deselects the Has Open Main Work checkbox.
