A crucial part of maintaining the safety regimen is scheduling outages every 18 months to perform extensive maintenance in all areas of their plants. Obviously, when dealing with a nuclear plant, there is no room for error. Therefore, maintenance or repairs require clearly regulated and highly detailed work order packages to ensure that the proper safety protocols are being followed.
The Work Packages
If you have created work packages in the SAP module, you might also be familiar with the challenge this company faced. With massive amounts of attachments, maintenance work packages were extremely difficult to compile. The challenge was compounded due to many attachments stored on different servers – and were not linked to Document Information Records in the SAP Document Management System. Because of this, the company’s printing process required an employee to pull up each attachment in its original application, print it out, and then compile and sort the entire maintenance work package by hand.
There was no streamlined process of printing the attachments out of SAP. When the attachments were printed, they also had no identification to indicate which maintenance work package they belonged to. It was a “frustrating, time consuming, and tedious” process that translated into 240 hours assembling the packages – per outage!
