Equipment master data handling process
We have huge SAP-PM equipment data change scenarios like , change in FL , change in status , change in field values(like manufacturer , model etc) . We have standard templates for each scenario and user sends the same to central master team to upload . We have LSMWs to upload the data .
Our problems are , some time user sends data for equipments which doesn't belong to him (Plant , planner group) . He gives manufacturer and model data which is irrelevant for the equipment technical object type etc.Although LSMW throws error in many scenarios , we need a solution where in user data is checked before hand through some automated solution (For eg a LSMW which actually does not execute the transaction but creates a output file showing whether the transaction will be successful , is the input maintenance plant and equipment maintenance plant same etc.....
What is the usual practice followed in such scenarios ....We don't authorize end users to do that transaction due to some issues
