1 Refurbishment Management SAP Best Practices for Chemicals
2 Purpose, Benefits, and Key Process Steps Faulty repairable spares is maintained to re-use in company, the spare part will have different valuation type to represent different valuesBenefitsA high value spare part or critical part, will be managed with serial number. It will help to manage each piece of this spare partRefurbishment process will help to reduce the spare parts inventory costThe refurbishment of high value faulty repairable spares is of considerable economic importance for the companies . It is much more cost-effective than a brand new purchase.Key process flows coveredCreation of Maintenance OrderRemoving Defective EquipmentReturning Defective material to warehouseGoods Issue for Maintenance OrderActivate EquipmentCreating the Refurbishment Order for the Defective materialGoods Issue for Refurbishment OrderOrder ConfirmationGoods Received for Refurbishment OrderCompleting, Settling, and Closing the Refurbishment Order

4 Detailed Process Description Refurbishment ManagementIn this scenario, a spare part will be procured and installed in the function location as an equipment. Serial nos. can also be assigned to the procured material. These repairable spare parts can be identified with different valuation types like New(C1), Repaired(C2) and Damaged(C3) with corresponding cost assignments.When there is a malfunction of the installed equipment, it will be dismantled from the functional location and a spare part / equipment can be withdrawn and installed at the functional location. The defective equipment will be returned as damaged item to the warehouse(Valuation type C3). The stock in the warehouse will be automatically updated(with valuation types) and with corresponding cost.The maintenance planner will create a refurbishment order. The defective repairable spare(Valuation class C3) will be withdrawn from the warehouse and will be repaired. When the refurbishment is finished, the equipment will be returned to warehouse as repaired material (Valuation type C2) and the cost will be updated accordingly in the material master. After the settlement of the refurbishment order, the maintenance expense will be settled to the specific material, then the moving average price of this spare will be updated in the material master. So the moving average price of this spare will vary during the different phases of refurbishment.After the settlement of the refurbishment order, the maintenance expense is settled to the specific material. The moving average price of this spare is updated in the material master. The moving average price of this spare varies during the different phases of refurbishment.

This band can also identify an organization unit or group, rather than a specific role.The other process flow symbols in this table go into these rows. You have as many rows as required to cover all of the roles in the scenario.Role band contains tasks common to that role.External Events: Contains events that start or end the scenario, or influence the course of events in the scenario.Flow line (solid): Line indicates the normal sequence of steps and direction of flow in the scenario. Flow line (dashed): Line indicates flow to infrequently-used or conditional tasks in a scenario. Line can also lead to documents involved in the process flow.Connects two tasks in a scenario process or a non-step eventBusiness Activity / Event: Identifies an action that either leads into or out of the scenario, or an outside Process that happens during the scenarioDoes not correspond to a task step in the documentUnit Process: Identifies a task that is covered in a step-by-step manner in the scenarioCorresponds to a task step in the documentProcess Reference: If the scenario references another scenario in total, put the scenario number and name here.Sub-Process Reference: If the scenario references another scenario in part, put the scenario number, name, and the step numbers from that scenario hereProcess Decision: Identifies a decision / branching point, signifying a choice to be made by the end user.
