PM Counter No Longer Changes Job Plan

Technote (troubleshooting)


Changing the PM Counter does up update the job plan in the PM application


1. Create the following job plans in the Job Pans application:

2. Create a PM in the PM application:
Attach JP3000 to the job plan field on the main PM tab
Go to the Job Plan Sequence tab:
JP3000 has sequence of 1
Add job plans
JP6000 sequence 2
JP15000 sequence 5
JP 60000 sequence 20

3. Generate PM work orders FROM the "Select Action" menu,
Un-check "Use Frequency Criteria?"
The current counter is now 2.
View sequence and the next job plan is JP3000.

4. Go to the "Select Action" menu, set PM counter to 20
The counter now displays 20 on the counter field.
The job plan field on the main PM tab displays JP3000 but JP60000 is expected.

Resolving the problem

Set the PM counter to 19 so it will pick up 20. The system will think the PM has already generated work orders 19 times and it will pick up the job plan with a sequence of 20.
