FS Preventive Maintenance Engine - Activity Creation

While invoking the PM engine in one of our functionality, we see that for some of the records ,even after passing all the input parameters including 'End Date' to the FSPrevMnt component, the 'Due' date field on the activity does not get set with the 'End Date' parameter. It gets set to the current date time after the PM component is invoked.
We would like to understand the cause and fix for this behavior of PM component.

The inputs to the


The Due date on Asset's activity created by FSPrevMnt engine is set to the input End Date.

Repro Steps

1. Create a workflow process with a business service step that invokes
'Server Requests' BS, 'SubmitRequest' method, and process properties as
inputs to the FSPrevMnt engine.
Basically set up to be like customer's BS step for invoking FSPrevMnt with
inputs. Deploy and Activate the workflow process.

2. Create a serializable product, release it.

3. Create a Preventive Maintenance plan with a time trigger:

Administration - Preventive Maintenance

Name: Test PM Plan
Created: 10/26/2012 08:39:19 AM
Last Run: 8/2/2015 03:29:38 PM
Priority: blank
Min SRs Required: 0
Over # of Days: 365
Active: checked
Optional: unchecked
Real Time Trigger: unchecked


Time Interval

Interval: 183
Valid Start: 0
Valid End: blank

4. Create a new Asset, associate product from 2 to the asset. Set Installed
= Registered = 4/24/1997.

5. Log into service_enu, go to Administration - Business Service > Simulator.

Simulate the workflow process with the inputs:

PM_spcEndDT="2015-10-05" PM_spcAsset_spcID="1-5ZT-2" ProcessName="PM Test
Workflow Process" PM_spcDefActOwnerID="0-1" PM_spcPlan_spcID="1-GI6WEQ"

FSPrevMnt creates 1 PM Action, and the Due = current date = 9/8/2015 08:00:00
AM (9/8/2015 is the current date when simulating the workflow process), like
customer's which is 9/8/2015 11:00:00 AM.
