The j5 SAP Plant Maintenance Integration allows j5 to access information relating to the equipment installed in a plant. This includes the SAP functional location hierarchy which is related to j5 Operational Areas and as such can add value when integrated with a j5 system.
j5 SAP PM allows:
SAP PM Master Data (Functional Locations and Equipment) to be imported into j5 and mapped to the Operational Area hierarchy for use in the Asset Register.
SAP Work Orders and Notifications to be imported into j5.
Work Notifications created in j5 to be pushed to SAP.
For SAP work orders and notifications to be used with j5 SAP PM, the j5 Work Requests and Orders module also needs to be installed. j5 SAP PM provides the interface between j5 and SAP for equipment, locations, work orders and notifications, while j5 Work Requests and Orders provides the logbooks where work orders and notifications are stored in j5.
If j5 SAP PM is installed without j5 Work Requests and Orders, SAP functional locations and equipment will be synchronized to j5, but the Work Orders and Work Notifications logbooks won’t be available, and the SAP PM Console will not synchronize work orders and notifications to j5.
