Pass On And Inherit Warranty

What is the difference between Pass on warranty and Inherit warranty?

Pass on warranty

You can also set the indicator Pass on warranty when you create a master warranty. 

If the indicator is set in the master warranty, it is automatically copied when you enter the master warranty in the technical object. This indicator specifies whether the master warranty of the technical object should be passed on to the technical objects lower down in the hierarchy. 

If this indicator is set, both the warranties of the object being checked and those of the superior technical objects in the hierarchy are displayed in a list during the warranty check. 

The system searches for the next-highest equipment and the next-highest functional location for which the indicator Pass on warranty is set, and to which a master warranty or a warranty period is assigned. A maximum of two higher technical objects per warranty type are displayed.
 

Inherit warranty

This indicator specifies whether the master warranty or the warranty period can or cannot be inherited from the next-highest technical object in the hierarchy level. 

If the indicator is set, both the warranties that have been passed on and the warranties for the technical object are displayed in a list for the warranty check. 

If the indicator is not set, only the warranties for the technical object are displayed. 

For example:

If you have a Car and now if you have created a CAR as an equipment and any major part of Car like engine, if you have created engine as an equipment then Car would be a superior eqpt for engine, thus engine is installed in Car, now if both have same warranty details then you can maintain warranty details for CAR and pass on the same to Engine.  Thus here, engine would inherit the warranty from CAR.

It would work in this way.  You can maintain warranty details for CAR like start date, Master warranty & tick pass on warranty.  Now in engine, just enter the start date, tick inherit warranty and on creating Maintenance Order on Engine. If it is in warranty you would get a warranty pop up.
