Sometimes, for Run-time Interval PM Masters, work orders are not generated when they should be. Secondly, even without the WO generation, the system updates the Last PM and Next PM Due fields on the PM Master.

This problem only occurs with PM Masters that have a Next Schedule date in the Past.  It looks like the system requires the Next Schedule Date to be fairly current in order for the PM WO to be generated.  However, since the schedule basis for the PM is 'Runtime-Interval', it seems that the only criteria for actually generating the WO should be based on whether or not the current meter units meet the runtime 'interval' criteria defined on the PM Master.

Steps to recreate:

1.Select a PM which has a Next Schedule Date in the past.
2.Go to the Forecast. Finish Or Cancel the previous WO. This problem can also be seen when there are no previous Work Orders in the forecast.
3.Make a run time entry to fulfill the NEXT PM DUE criteria.
4.Run the PM Cycle batch job and notice the Last PM and Next PM Due fields are updated on the PM Master Header.
5.Go to the Forecast.The Schedule date will be updated with the date when the batch job ran, BUT no WO is generated.
