Scope item Recurring Services (4X5)

This scope item covers the customer facing process using a Service Plan that is part of the SAP S/4HANA Cloud - Service.

The goal of a service plan is to schedule and organize periodic services that occur repeatedly at certain intervals, such as regular maintenance, ahead of time. A planned recurring service helps to save costs resulting from unforeseen outages or breakdowns.

It also helps to plan services in a better and more transparent way, and to schedule resources, such as personnel or materials, more efficiently. A recurring service can be implemented using the maintenance plan functionality. A maintenance plan is used to do the following:

  • Plan and perform a recurring service, enabling an object to be serviced throughout its life cycle.
  • Generate follow-up service orders at freely definable points in time.
  • Determine which service, and when, is to be planned, performed, or offered, and for which objects. The rules for this are defined in the so-called service interval.
