Uses of PRT in Maintenance
I want to use a PRT equipment as Stallion (An equipment testing other equipment : Calibration process). Is that a good logic ? if it's not what kind of equipment category i can use to meet the requirement of knowing the uses of the calibration equipment.
Transaction to know more information about the PRT uses.
That's correct. You can use equipment category P i.e. PRT in this case.
Basically the logic used is that all instrument that needs calibration are to be categorized though standard equipment category: Q ie. "Test and Measuring Equipment" and all Master calibrator instrument which are used to calibrate the instrument is to be categorized with Equipment category P i.e., Production Resources and Tools.
General rule is any resource/tool/equipment which is not fixed and is mobile can be classified as a PRT. Below is the general definition given by SAP for PRT:
Production resources/tools (PRTs) are mobile operating facilities used in production or plant maintenance. The R/3 System distinguishes between the following types of production resource/tool on the basis of their attributes and business function:
- Materials considered in materials management, for example, in inventory management, material requirements planning, and procurement
- Equipment such as measuring devices or high-quality tools requiring preventive maintenance
- Documents such as drawings or programs for which document management functions are used
- Other PRTs (with a PRT master record) requiring less maintenance
Hope this helps!
