Running auxiliary functions when required

These functions can be run occasionally, for example at go live date or in case if some data is corrupt.

To run a batch job with no autojobs, you must shut down the subsystem for auto start jobs and then start CMNGJOB. See instructions in Auto Start Jobs and Subsystems.

Note: Restriction: Whilst the activities described below explain the process by which Service Management data can be migrated for use by the Maintenance Management functionality, it should be noted that data traceability and reporting capability is not currently available to support this functionality, and it is the end user's responsibility to manage and monitor the data migration activities in accordance with their business process requirements.

When upgrading from a previous version of M3 BE using the Service Management (SRV) functionality to a version of M3 BE using the Maintenance Management (MAI/MNT) functionality, a conversion of data must be performed in order to make the functionality work. The auxiliary programs for SRV convert data in (SRV) to data in (MAI/MNT).

There are important dependencies between some of the auxiliary programs that must be considered as they affect the order in which the data should be migrated.

Service expenses should be migrated with 'Service Expense. Convert to MAI' (SAS914) before migrating service kits with 'Service Kit. Convert to Service' (SAS916). This is because the service kit lines can be created from service expenses.

Service agreements should be migrated last using 'Service Agreement. Convert to MAI' (SAS930). Because the service agreement lines contain contract items and individual items, 'Contract Item. Convert to Service' (SAS927) and 'Individual Item. Convert to Equipment' (SAS925) must be migrated before service agreements. If the service agreements have content defined in (SAS128) it is important to migrate service expenses with (SAS916), as agreement content may include service expense lines.

The recommended order of running the auxiliary programs is listed below, however the order can be deviated from as long as the above mentioned dependencies are taken into consideration. If, for example, service kits with lines consisting of service expenses are migrated before running (SAS914) then the service kit expense lines will be dropped during migration. This rule set applies to all the listed SRV-auxiliary functions:

  1. 'Individual Item. Convert to Equipment' (SAS925)

    The auxiliary function 'Individual Item. Convert to Equipment' (SAS925) creates serialized items in 'Equipment/Serialized Item. Open' (MMS240) based on a selected range of individual items from 'Individual Item. Open' (SOS419).

  2. 'Contract Item. Convert to Service' (SAS927)

    The auxiliary function 'Contract Item. Convert to Service' (SAS927) creates service definitions in 'Service. Open' (MOS300), with pricing in 'Service. Enter Prices' (MOS306) from a selected range of contract items in 'Contract Item. Open' (SAS450).

  3. 'Service Expense. Convert to MAI' (SAS914)

    The auxiliary function 'Contract Item. Convert to Service' (SAS927) creates service definitions in 'Service. Open' (MOS300) with pricing in 'Service. Enter Prices' (MOS306) from a selected range of contract items in 'Contract Item. Open' (SAS450).

  4. 'Service Kit. Convert to Service' (SAS916)

    The auxiliary function 'Service kit. Convert to Service' (SAS916) creates service definitions in 'Service. Open' (MOS300) from a selected range of service kits in 'Service Kit. Open' (SOS450).

  5. 'Service Agreement. Convert to MAI' (SAS930)

    The auxiliary function 'SRV Agreement. Convert to MAI' (SAS930) creates maintenance agreements in 'Maint Agrmnt. Open' (COS410) from a selected range of service agreements in 'Service Agrmt. Open' (SAS100).

    Note: For converting price lists (SOS017) the RNT auxiliary function (STS913) should be used.
