    Hi Shinas,

    Regarding Integration
    between PPM and FI, there is no direct integration. But if u r creating PS
    project from PPM, you can fetch actual cost from PS to PPM. You need to define
    financial groups against Cost element /Cost center and activity type.

    For NPV and IRR, you can calculate
    directly in PPM.

    In PPM 5.0 IRR and NPV is manual
    input but in PPM 6.0 NPV is getting automatically  calculated  based
    on certain inputs like discount rate, time period.

    Formula for calculating NPV:

    A present value is
    the value now of a stream of future cash flows, negative or positive. The value
    of each cash flow needs to be adjusted for

    and the time value of money.

    A net present value (NPV) includes all cash
    flows including initial cash flows such as the cost of purchasing an asset,
    whereas a present value does not. The simple present value is useful where the
    negative cash flow is an initial one-off, as when buying a security.

    A discount rate
    needs to be used to adjust for risk and time value, and it is applied like this:


    = CF0

    + CF1/(1+r)

    + CF2/(1+r)2

    + CF3/(1+r)3 ...

    WhereCF 1 is the cash flow the investor
    receives in the first year, CF
    2the cash flow the investor
    receives in the second year etc.

    and r is the discount rate.

    Hi Shinas,

    The Configuration Content for PPM will also be useful and guides you through the necessary config. I am not sure of your PPM release but here are the relevant SAP Notes:

    1411953 PPM 5.0: Configuration Content

    1826389 PPM 6.0: Configuration Content

    2026421 PPM 6.1: Configuration Content

    Best Regards,
