    In SAP std you will get 6 order types from PM01 to PM06.
    This is not the limitation of order type and this is not necessary to use all the order type. Depends on the requirement it will be used.
    Try to post in SDN forum to get a quick responds.

    Calibration Order will be used to handle Equipment Calibration Process in SAP.

    When Calibration Order is created in SAP, an Inspection Lot is automatically assigned to that Order.

    This Inspection Lot can then be used further to perform Results Recording and Usage Decision for the Equipment that is to be Calibrated.
