CATS Integration with HR,PP,PM/CS,PS

Dear Friends

Can you please tell me how to Integrate CATS with PP module. I don't know what input fields I need to maintain & also we are using CATS in ESS. for that I've already created a profile & called it into the portal. But how can we do Integration?? I've seen few t-codes where the cats data is getting transferred to PM/CS,PS,CO,HR. but none of them has showed me a t-code or table which is related to PP module. we are now integrating CATS with HR,PM,CS,PS & PP modules. It would be very helpful if you can suggest me with the best solutions.

Regards

Pradyp

    Hi Pradyp,

    CATS to HR -- > create a attendance / absence  type in sap backend and call into cat2, check the table CATSDB table or CATSD sturcture.

    CATS to PS ---> create a wbs element in CJ20n transaction code , and should be release than only it will work. call this wbs element into cat2.

    that means , if the resource is booking the billable hours and should be select the wbse and A/A.

    check the table CATSPS.

    CATS to CO -- > create activity type KL01 is the transaction and provided by CO guys, actual cost will be transferred to controlling.

    check the table CATSCO for further information.

    CATS to SD , MM : -  create a sender cost center, orders all the stuff comes under this two modules and provided by sales team and procurement team.

    check the tables : CATSMM and CATSSD tables. Check the tables CATSPP for prd planning,

    check the some transaction codes.

    CAT2 is the employee time sheet.

    CATS_APPR -- approval TS

    CAT5

    CAT6

    CAT7 -- controlling

    CAT9.

    Thanks

    Siva

    pradyp:

    integration of cats to the rest of the modules is pretty easy from a config perspective. check tcodes cac1 and cac2. especially the second one which gives you a list of fields available within catsdb for settings/date entry et al..

    the difficult part is getting your head around the business processes which require this intergation and designing the time entry/validation/transfer processes in cats to enable those business requirements.

    Good luck mate,...

    cheers

    Hi Folks

    Thanks for your prompt replies, But I was expecting more information regarding CATS with PP module. I just wanted to know more that in which table the data stores & what kind of actions I need to take care of. In my present scenario my client don't want to transfer data back to PP module. where as in std we have the t-codes to transfer to all the modules, except PP. moreover pls tell me what changes i need to do for maintaining data entry profile, I've integrated CATS with travel mgt, and I can input the trip number in R/3 screen. But in Portal the Trip field is getting in display mode. the trip number inserted in R/3 is getting displayed in portal but its coming in display mode only. please find the below attachments.

    Hoping that I get best solutions 😊

    Regards

    Pradyp

    Hello Pradyp,

    Unfortunately SAP does not provide a connection from CATS to PP.  The PP orders are not available to the CATS processes.

    If you need to integrate PP with HCM time management processing you will have to find another method or look to incorporating PP speocfiocally to CATS functions using user exits (or some other type of in-house development).

    I believe that integration to HR can be managed using order confirmations from PP or incentive wage functionality.  It has been quite a while since I have looked into this integration, but that is what I remember.

    Hi All

    I dont know why SAP has not provided CATS integration with PP. I have a lot of customers asking for this functionality. I hope someone can share ideas on a workaround to achieve integration of CATS with PP

    • Hi,

      You said that cats can be 'indirectly' integrated to PP. Can you please give me an example?

      Our scenario it’s very simple.

      1. In CATS entry profile, besides other fields, we must provide an entry field, probably Internal Order (RAUFNR) or use one of the free additional fields, to record employee hours in a weekly bases;
      2. After release and approval process we must send this information to PP;
      3. We must enter those hours in PP through CO11N.

      Thanks in advance

      Regards

      Garcia
