SAP PM Tips and Plant Maintenance Discussion Forum

Practical and helpful SAP PM Stuff to assist those supporting the SAP Plant Maintenance Modules.  If you have any SAP Plant Maintenance question, please feel free to raise it in the SAP PM forum.

What is SAP PM?

The R/3 Plant Maintenance (PM) application component provides you with a comprehensive software solution for all maintenance activities that are performed within a company. The uniform, graphical user interface is particularly user-friendly and quickly meets with acceptance, thanks to the numerous possibilities that are available for tailoring it to meet individual requirements.

The data and functions of all maintenance procedures performed within a company can be fully interconnected.

The openness of the R/3 System enables you to use external systems that are integrated with the PM component, such as geographical information systems (GIS), computer-aided design (CAD) systems and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems.
