I have extended the calendar for another 10 years, however I don’t recall how to update the current maintenance plan in the existing PM Actions. Do I need to generate a new calendar or can I use the existing one?

 

How far out can you set this calendar, 5, 10 or as much as 20 years?

 

Thank you for your assistance.

Hello @CUCSOLUTIONS

.

There are few ways to extend PM maintenance plan.

The main functionality to do this is using the function “Extend/Shorten Plan”, here the current year taken from current PM_PLAN_HORIZON system value and you can enter new year limit. This will extend all PMs and also PM_PLAN_HORIZON system value will be set to the New Year Limit value you entered.
But If you want only to extend particular PM Plan, first modify PM_PLAN_HORIZON system value and modify the Valid To value on the PM.
The changing of PM_PLAN_HORIZON system value does not change any existing PM plan, but if you now create new PM it will create the PM plan upto new horizon.

 

 

Below the “PM_PLAN_HORIZON” value

Hope this helps.

 

Kind Regards,

Kasun

You can put calendars as far as 9999 everywhere. Don’t worry about the ending year.
