How can I see the material for preventive maintenance for next one year, (no order is created for next one year) and what is the use of IP19 (stimulation)? It will give the value added for this requirement?

To report material required in the future in Maintenance Plans first of all they have to be assigned to the task lists that is assigned to the Maintenance Items. The report I use is IP17 where you can list the Maintenance Items using functional location, equipment, planner group etc. Select the items to be analysed and select “Cost Estimate”. Add your period of analysis and the report looks like below. The report is based on the cost elements assigned to the parts of the task list e.g. Internal labour, external labour, internal material, external material etc.
The second question about IP19. This is a graphical representation to when the work orders will be due in the future. This report is good if you just want to see how your preventive work will look and clash with others for work load. There are some good graphical options for resource loads per month, week & daily just select the relevant button (see below for graph). Have a play because you can get some good reports from this transaction.
