General Task List in SAP PM
General Task List is not an Object based task list because it is not created with reference to a technical object. In SAP we use indicator ‘A‘ to identify general task list. T code to create a General task list is IA05.
General Task List is widely used in the preventive maintenance and routine maintenance. It is comprises of maintenance operations which are common to several technical objects (Equipment and functional location both). of critical and unique equipment, which requires some special maintenance operations to be performed at scheduled intervals. Suppose a maintenance work is to be performed on an equipment and maintenance tasks are specific (not general) to that equipment. In such a situation, we use equipment task list.
