Assign Budget for Internal Order using unit of measure (e.g. per liter)

HI Gurus,

Is it possible to assign internal order budget using unit of measures? I have read numerous blogs but none of them mention such or maybe I'm not just lucky to find one. Just wondering if any of you knows how or if its possible.

We are currently maintaining budget using absolute amount but the management would like to change it unit of measure.

    Hi Melissa

    Budget is always set at the object level... Internal order, Cost Center, WBS Etc

    You can plan it at cost element level, if you can possibly have one cost element per each UoM but budgeting with this approach is not possible

    Alternatively, you can use Project systems, where WBS within the same project, would be created based on each UoM and should be statistical. Set the budget at these WBS element level (i.e. per litre etc).

    On posting, you can define substitution rules in GGB1 to derive WBS for statistical posting based on UoM. Thats it

    Please note this approach will not work, if you want commitments too for budgetary control.

    Hope it helps

    Regards

    Mustafa

    Hi Melisa

    We did this once when project systems was there

    Standard sap has budgeting based on dollar value. But client wanted based on UOM. So, some user exit was implemented to compare the planned qty and actual qty

    I was a novice then, so did not pick up the user exit name
