We are trying to figure out how the Preventive Maintenance Engine is executed from the Component Request View.

We performed the following actions to set up the PM Plan as per example from Siebel Bookshelf.

  1. Created a PM Plan in the Preventive Maintenance Screen and associated a Time Interval Trigger with the following values: Interval 1, Valid Start 0, Valid End 7
  2. Created a new dummy Product in the Products Screen.
  3. Created a new asset in the Asset Screen.
  4. Added the dummy product in the Preventive Maintenance Products View. Associated the new asset to the product.
  5. Created a new SR Template and associated an Activity Template to it.
  6. In the Preventive Maintenance Actions View under the SR Templates added the new SR Template.
  7. We set the Preventive Maintenance Flag (TRUE) in the User Preferences View.
  8. Proceeded to the Server Administration Screen > Enterprise Operations > Components Request View. Created a new Component Request for Preventive Maintenance and added the following Component Request Parameters:
Asset ID 1-2CD9 (Row Id for the Asset)
End Date 2004-01-31
Mode Id
Plan ID 1-2CD3 (Row Id for the PM Plan)
Sub-mode Assets&Plans

=> After submitting the request, the Status of Job remains in Queue and never completes.

Are these the correct parameters we should be setting? Our objective is to be able to run the PM Engine using Component Request or Repeated Component Requests.

Like wise we tried running PM Engine from the Asset Preventive Maintenance View. After pressing RUN PM nothing ever appears in the History and it appears to be in queue.

We need help in understanding how to go about running the PM engine. Bookshelf is not clear on how to set these parameters.
