Top 50 Sap Pm Interview Questions You Must Prepare 08.Dec.2023

The standard procedure or flow is after TECO. You can then go for settlement afterwards.

So do the Release, confirmation and then TECO.

Technically speaking, you can perform settlement in either REL or TECO status.

Therefore it is up to your business or purpose to decide.

First of all, you cannot get 800 hrs per month...

For counter based... it will schedule in two days... like.. days and hours... but.. if u schedule in will take the annual reading and schedule the dates.. So.. if the running hrs didn't reach, but the date reached... so.. it will open a order...

Give the annual reading according to the running hrs of the DG.. then u will get.

See if there is an authorization object for IWERK (planning plant). From there, do the revisions as needed to comply with your requirement.

The standard planned/actual costing variants are both set to PM01.

Your FI/CO team may need to adjust the costing type and valuation variant etc.

Either way, coordinate with your FI/CO team about these settings.

Have a look in the action or changes log within the order.

Go to the status screen and select the REL status. Use the menu path Extras >Change documents > For status. This will show date, time, and user.

I think the control can be established when requesting for the resources. Example: raising a PR, after the release of a PR, and goods procured.

The scenario is for Expenses Budget for the Cost Center.

The Engineering Department gives Expenses Budget (Includes Manpower cost, Spares, External Services) for the fiscal year with a monthly break up.

Using the T Code KPZ2, the Budget values will be maintained.

 Let us take an example Budget for January 2006 for the Cost Center Engineering Department is $500,00@At the time of posting transactions like Goods Issue, Service Entry Sheet or Time Confirmation, if the total expenses for the month of January exceeds the Budget value $500,000, the system should give the message.

You can use transaction code IL02 to change functional location, highlight the respective functional location and go to edit at the top tool bar, their you select functions change and their you can click delete, to set a flag delete.

You cannot hide this functional location when you display IH01 , the functional location hierarchy is displayed but once you click it , the screen appears showing the functional location is created with flag for deletion.

Assuming you mean the date difference between planned and actual (confirmation date), this date can be found in tables MHIS and respectively.

The transaction CV01N creates an object in SAP. This object is just a link with your document on your PC or on a server.

The transaction CV01N does not upload your file in SAP.

You can also check in transaction DC10 the value for ‘file size’.

My guess is that you will not be able to see the customer specific fields in the standard list edit programs.

But you can simply copy these programs and include the fields yourself.

You know that really annoying pop-up box that appears when you TECO and order? The one with the reference date and time?

This is the information used as a basis for the shift factors.

In the newer versions, there are two reference dates and times. One of them is specifically used for maintenance plans.

The new functionality is available from version 4.7 onwards. You need to activate this for each of the maintenance plan category.

Answers are given in the order they were asked:

  1.  Authorization object I_VORG_ORD is checked through:

    Where BETRVORG equals ‘BUTA’;

    But, also in TECO, people can consume (unplanned) materials or confirm work hours; you might want to double check if SAP PM Interview Questions - 70 - blocking the un-TECO would resolve your problem.

    There is an alternative solution:

    Utilize a user-exit to pop-up a warning/error message when creating a confirmation document.

    Have a look at TCode SMOD with a search criteria CONFPM*;

    It’s just an alternative option to investigate. The first solution was better but it wouldn’t work for goods movements via IW41, but not for POs, SES, etc.

    User-statuses could also cause problems e.g.

    1. PR created in REL status
    2. PO created in REL status
    3. Order TECO’ed and user-status blocks goods movements;
    4. Now try to GR the PO - you will now get a status error.

    At some level you need to control processes via training/ education etc.

  2. You can do this by using a user profile, in which a status is activated automatically by the TECO business process.

To this user status, you can block ‘actual postings’;

Do the following to correct the situation: Make sure that you run DP90 with the sales order number and not the service order. Go back to the service order and check if there are actual costs involved.

Check your DIP Profile; specifically the sources section to ensure that you are not filtering out any dynamic items.

Check the planned/actual report (button) in the Cost tab; check that a quantity is displayed.

You can have as many measurement points as you need.

You will need to create another measurement type (characteristic) to accommodate the other unit of measure.

Create a new measurement point with a new unit of measure and then link the new point with the old one using transmission of measurement reading. This will resolve your problem.

Yes, there is a specific cost report in the order (Extras- >Suborders->Cost overview).

The TCode IW38 uses the Leading order and the Superior order fields.

Check the influencing factors (button at the top of screen) in the field selection.

The main work center in the work order header is always mandatory, you can’t change it.

In the initial screen, when you create a work order, enter a functional location which contains a work center. After this, you will not have a problem filling up this field.

It cannot be actually be changed, but you can modify a particular Equipment in IE02 -> in Organization -> Responsibility -> Planning Plant.

You can also change IP05 in the Planning Data.

 Item number refers to the number (not material number) to  identify the material component that is to be used for an operation in the maintenance order.It is generally given in increments of 0010.It is the first field in the Components tab of a maintenance order.

Create a catalog profile and assign it to your equipment in the Organization tab. This will then be copied to the Notification when the equipment number is entered.

The same works for Functional locations.

You cannot change the estimated costs once the order is released. But I believe that it is possible via a “direct database update”. Coordinate the task with your ABAP team as they are in a position to help.

You can copy the FLoc structure via TCode IL04; however you cannot copy the equipment.

At first, create in the customizing all the objects depending on planning and maintenance plant: Company area, planer group, and location.

Than, create the new work center, and cost center for the new plant.

Download, from the functional location, all the data depending on planning and the maintenance plant.

Do the same for the pieces of equipment if they are not installed on functional location.

At the first level of the FL, change the maintenance plant. Normally, the system changes all the data on all the sub level and EQ. Now you can reload on FL and/or EQ all the data depending on planning and maintenance plant.

  1. What about class & characteristics is it also the same thing
  2. counter is triggers order when particular value set comes ,so is it possible to trigger it on alpha bet instead of digit reference for any type of counting . i.e. Is it possible to count alpha bet instead of digit?
  3. When I search that t code on sap forum It will show for sub order .So when & why we create sub order
  4. What is significance of T code iw3@
  5. In IMG settings, Maintain the Value category for Internal labor cost, and assigned to appreciate cost elements group.

multiple counter plan and strategy plan cannot be added together, If u add counter plan with a strategy, counter plan will be taken into consideration ,strategy will not be considered.

If there have been any warning or error messages displayed, please include message number e.g. AB 055.

In IP20, select the relevant unassigned MPC (little button), select the relevant number range and press the big button to assign.

It depends on the implementation methodology you are using (e.g. ASAP).

Typically speaking, baseline configuration is a basic set-up to demonstrate processes to the business.

The final configuration would then be the final design ready for go-live.

You can do the following:

  1. Ensure your materials have a valuation class assigned.
  2. Ensure your order has planned/actual costing variants assigned (last tab).
  3. Ensure your value categories are correct.
  4. Check the costs via the planned/actual report button on the Cost tab.

The system will create a call-object (order, notification, etc) for each maintenance item in the maintenance plan. It does not create a call-object for items in the object list.

Therefore, to answer your question, create additional maintenance items in the maintenance plan and link each to equipment.

Search for the ‘condition based maintenance’ on data within the system. It will provide you the necessary processes involved and verification of data you have queried.

You should considered classification.

Alternatively, investigate user-exit ITOB0001 (sub screen for technical. object master data) via TCode SMOD.

  Or BADIs EQUI_SCR_* (via TCode SE18);

You may also try searching SAPFans using ITOB0001.

single cycle plan is may be performance-based or time-based but here it not required to maintain strategy.By entering main. category we will create meant. plan for particular object by using t-code IP41.

Try using TCode IW38 by entering your order type for ‘Preventive maintenance orders’.

Once in the list-display, select the relevant order and use menu-path:

Order->Release order.

Alternatively, set the Release immediately flag in the order type customizing (TCode OIOA).

Ensure that you have tabs assigned to your notification type in the IMG (Set Screen Templates for the Notification Type).

Also make sure that the checkbox called Tab is set for each tab; this ensures that the tabs are displayed.

You cannot reverse the REL status back to CRTD status.

Standard status flow: CRTD->REL->TECO->CLSD;

However, you can cancel both the TECO and CLSD statuses.

You can also postpone an order through:

Go to “Order-->Functions-->Complete-->Cancel TECO or Cancel Business Completion;

Check your pricing procedure to see what account key (ActKy) is set for the condition type (the standard is KBM1). From there, you can proceed to correct any errors.

It is possible if there is an IMG setting for automatic task determination on save.

Another to do this via one of the following user-exits:

QQMA0014: Checks before saving a notification;

ICSV0002: Automatic task determination for service notifications;

There is an integration of PP-PM in case of PRTs, wherein you can create measuring documents for usage of PRT when you do confirmation using CO1@This will in turn create the maintenance order as PRT.

You can use the equipment for which you need to create the maintenance order as PRT in the routing of PP and for the PRT you have to put in the formula for calculating its usage.

When you do the confirmation for the produced material the formula will update the usage of PRT which will in turn create a measuring document. SAP PM Interview Questions - 82 - Try to do the above. Or you can try creating that equipment as PRT. The formulas are on the same line as the formula that you create for work center.

Go into the FLoc (IL02) and display the structure list (button at top of the screen). Check if your equipment hierarchy is displayed.

If not, go to the equipment and check the details on the Structure tab. Also display the structure list.

If both of the above don’t work, then it would appear to be a bug - check OSS using IH01 as search criteria.

You can read the help-text in the IMG for that field. It explains in detail the processes for which this functionality applies.

Initially, you can investigate user-exit IWO10009 (at save).

Then, you should still be able to utilize IWO10009 to check if a notification has been assigned (possibly via the program stack).

You should also get your ABAP team to get involved and check the problem.

Go to the change equipment transaction , then extra, then add or replace counters. then select the desired counter by F4 help. you can't directly add counters or measuring pts to a maintenance plan.

u can do this for equipment , FL and PRT only.

The easiest way is to use function module STATUS_TEXT_ EDIT.

You can find the PM/CS tables here.

Go to iw32> Extras-->Settings -->Default values -in General; There you can set the business area, planning plant, and profit center etc.
