Information System


The Plant Maintenance Information System can be used at a variety of levels in the decision-making process as an instrument for monitoring, controlling and planning your business operations.

It is a flexible tool for collecting, aggregating and evaluating data from Plant Maintenance.

The information system allows you to view all information in the operative application from a wide range of perspectives. You can also define the level of detail in which you wish to see the information.


The Plant Maintenance Information System is part of the Logistics Information System (LIS) which also includes the Shop Floor Information System and Inventory Controlling. All information systems in LIS make use of the same techniques for analyzing data and they all have the same user interface.

Use of the Plant Maintenance application component is a prerequisite for the 'Plant Maintenance Information System' component. It is also possible, however, to include external data (for example, from non-SAP systems).

If you select the 'Plant Maintenance Information System' component while you are in the Plant Maintenance application component itself, then you do not need to select the 'Logistics Information System' component at Logistics General level.


The Plant Maintenance Information System allows you to evaluate breakdown behavior, or the maintenance tasks of a technical system or machine.

It is also possible to analyze the costs incurred or the party responsible for the maintenance tasks and the exact activities that have been performed.

A wide range of informative key figures is available for analyzing functional processes. Target criteria can be permanently controlled and transferred to tasks at an early stage.
The data is evaluated using either standard analyses or flexible analyses.

Flexible planning, the Early Warning System and the Logistics Information Library are integrated into the Plant Maintenance Information System.

Tools are available in Customizing which allow you to apply a self-defined structure to your information system and tailor it to meet your own specific requirements.
