If your organization uses the Plant Maintenance module, some or all of the configuration enhancements detailed below may be relevant if you wish to copy this data from one system to another. Those tables included in these enhancements are listed here:
Table Table Description
IHPA Plant Maintenance: Partners
IRLOT Reference Functional Location (Table)
IRLOTX Reference Functional Location: Short Texts
IHGNS Permit Segment for Plant Maintenance
IHSG Object-Related Permits in Plant Maintenance
T357G Permits
T357G_T Text for Table 357GT
IMEL Entry List for Measurement Documents
IMEP Items in the Entry List
IMPH Measurement and Counter Reading Transmission History
IMPTT Measuring Point (Table)
IMRG Measurement Document

Enhancements to the Client Construct framework should be made as follows
Step 1: Add tables IHPA, IRLOT, and IRLOTX to data type FUNCTIONAL LOCATIONS

NOTE: Be aware that table IHPA has been included within the Client Construct framework for some time now as part of master data type PROJECT SYSTEMS; however the data in this table aligns more closely with the data in master data type FUNCTIONAL LOCATIONS. So to avoid copying the data in table IHPA redundantly, we recommend that you either inactivate it within the PROJECT SYSTEMS data type (and consider adding the reason why in the ‘Exclusion Reason’ field) or delete it outright.Step 2: Create a new master data type named PERMITS and add tables IHSG, IHGNS, T357G, and T357G_T.

  • Tables that begin with the letter ‘T’ are typically SAP configuration tables; however SAP classifies these specific tables as application data.

Step 1: Add table IHPA to the following data types: PM - FUNCTIONAL LOCATIONS, CA – EQUIPMENT DATA, and CA – EQUIP WITH MEASUREMENT DATA, and be sure to add the common field using the details displayed in the screen captures that follow
