Last Run

The time and date when the selected PM plan was last activated.

The Preventive Maintenance Engine fills two time stamps when it runs:

  • When you run the Auto PM function on an asset, the Preventive Maintenance Engine examines each active PM plan to determine whether it applies to the particular asset. The time stamp for this examination is recorded in the PM plan (S_PM_PLNITM.LAST_RUN_DT).
  • When the Preventive Maintenance engine has located a PM plan that applies to the asset (the plan has an asset connector for the asset or a corresponding product connector with the All Assets flag set), it also records the time stamp in the corresponding product connector or asset connector record (S_PM_APPL_ASSET.LAST_RUN_DT). If required, you can expose this time stamp in the following business components:
    • FS PM Applicable Plan Item
    • FS PM Plan Item-Product Connector
    • FS PM Plan Item-Asset Connector
