|Difference Between The Control
Keys PM02 PM03
What is the difference between the control keys PM02 & PM03? On which occassion we can use it?
These are Control Keys which is used in the PM
orders. The use of Control Keys are;
PM02 - External Processing is carried out for the operation, and a purchase requisition and a purchase order are generated from this. The costs of this task are posted through the goods receipt or invoice receipt for the purchase order.
PM03 - External Services is carried out for the service, and through DP90 debit memo request the sales order has been generated in the background & billing has to be done. For example - Company is planning to give the Equipment (Lift) for the service to the 3rd party (vendor). Usually they will maintain Vendor details in the Equipment master.
The key of order determines the type of subcontracting:
PM02 : the sub-contracted activity is managed by means of a normal purchase requisition.
PM03 : the sub-contracted activity is managed on the basis of the service master or conditions and imply then the seizure of the services (Plant maintenance -> Maintenance Processing -> Environment -> Service Master ).
The purchase requisition contains conditions relating
to the operation.
Map the scenarios below with control key.
Scenario 1: If one equipment brokedown, I need special technical team to attend the breakdown and solve the problem, because lack of expertise with local team.
Scenario 2: Regular calibration or check up done by manufacturer in the plant.
Scenario 3: Sending Equipment out during breakdown for repair or calibration.
Also the system requires Service approval for PM03 not for PM02 why is it like that. Why the job provided using PM02 does not require Service approval although it is also repair done by vendor.
1. You can use PM02 for procurement of non-stock
materials and PM03 for procurement of external services.
PM02 is not a standard External Service, Its basically outsourcing of operations at Labour level.
