Shopping Cart to commit budget in ECC

Hi all,

Is it possible that the shopping cart commit budget for account assingment objects in ECC? Is it a way to do it?

I understand that not in standard, has anyone made an enhancement for this process? Any ideas?

Thanks

Ezequiel

    SAP offers an add-on for SC commitments as a consulting solution, my current client is using it.

    Technically it uses PReqs in ECC for blocking the budget before the PO is created.

    It seems that the screenshots above show code from this solution, as I recognize some technical names. Not sure about the legal background for posting this here.

    I guess you can contact SAP via SMP or your sales rep about it. It will likely cost some $$$ though.

      One of my customer implemented this consulting solution; But I believe we can also have this custom implemented by having the PR created every time - a shopping cart is fully approved in SRM;

    Hi Ezequiel,

    Are you searching for requirement where the Internal Order/ WBS such account assignment Budget should get committed in the backend system when SC is created.

    Case I: When SC is ordered we have the standard Program where the Commitments gets updated automatically in the backend system for the respective Account assignment.

    However, If suppose the same SC is recalled/rejected due to some reason, the commitment should be reversed and updated in the backend system which is not happening with the standard code. Please check for that.

    Here the commitment check is happening after the SC is approved which is sometimes harmful if we have budget available of 1000 and at the same time 4 users creating SC with the same amount will be committed for either of the Sc and rest will fail. In this way the User would not be able to know why the SC failed.

    For example - WBS has10,000 budget, SC created and ordered for 1000 then 1000 gets committed however if the same SC is recalled/rejected then 1000 should be reversed which is not happening. This all Should be updated in the Budget Check link in the SC.

    Case II: To avoid the above problem, We have made a Development. Wherein we commit the item immediately after SC is ordered and does not wait till it gets approved for the following conditions -

    Code:

    Hope this is useful.

    Thanks.

      Hello Snehal,

      I read out the posts mentioned but I think it is related to budget check during SC creation.

      What I am trying to know if the program that you mentioned that updates the commitment document related to the accounting object.

      Please let me know if I missundertand you

      Regards,
      Martin

    Hi,

    I am not sure if this helps..

    We managing this differently-  Like In PO, we consider potential SC commitments through custom code for Final Budget check & availability.
