Business object


Depending on their properties and business functions, the R/3 System distinguishes between the following categories of production resources/tools:

You can assign PRTs in task lists (including standard networks and recipes), production and maintenance orders, and networks. You assign them to the operations and phases for which they are required.

If a production resource/tool is required for inspections during production, you can assign it as test equipment to the relevant inspection characteristic in the task list.

Production resources/tools are not yet supported in the process order.


Using the classification system, you can group production resources/tools according to your own criteria. This facilitates searching for PRTs.

Production resources/tools can be linked to document info records to refer to further information, for example, a construction drawing.
