SAP for Maintenance Planners Training

Many planners came up through the ranks with little training. If they were trained, they learned the basics, but not how SAP relates to their job as a Planner, or their screen configurations. This training is specifically designed for the Planner that uses SAP daily. We will review each aspect of the SAP “must know” planning functions.

This training can also be very helpful for Managers that have Planners reporting to them, so they better understand what Planners should know regarding SAP, to help the Planners generate better quality planned work packages.

Additionally, there are Supervisors, Leads, etc., that unfortunately, are tasked with Planning as well. While this is not optimal, this is a great opportunity to assist them in becoming more efficient by ensuring their SAP skills are enhanced.

About this Seminar

Do any of these common issues look familiar? 

  • 5Getting poor quality notifications
  • 5Not knowing how to plan what is included in the operations list
  • 5Lack of prework hides chronic failures and prevents proper Root Cause Failure analysis
  • 5Lack of Task Lists costs both time and effort due to repeated planning of jobs. This negates the continuous improvement process. Plans can’t be adjusted for timing, wrong materials, special tools, or support equipment being omitted
  • 5Lack of understanding of Operation Relationships affects the scheduling process and leads to lost wrench time and poor utilization of resources
  • 5Lack of quality setup of Material Masters causes problems with material procurement and proper material identification
  • 5Lack of proper prioritization of work
  • 5Not capturing order types prevents creation of KPI and reporting options
  • 5Lack of prework causes higher costs by not utilizing warranty work, and work done may cancel or void warranty
  • 5Poor Bill of Materials makes ordering materials more difficult and dramatically increases the time it takes to plan a job. It also makes the final plan less reliable. Bill of Materials is not properly reviewed and maintained as part of the continuous improvement process.
  • 5Functional Location Object Information Screen is not utilized properly causing extra work
