Functional Area for WBS Element

Hi Friends

While posting Invoices in SRM 7.0 for WBS elements the Functional Area is sometimes picked up from WBS element directly and sometimes from Responsible Cost Center of the WBS.

Also in cases when we have split account assignment with CC and WBS elements then many times only the COST Center Functional Area is passed for all the account assignment split.

E.G. we have 1 line item with 10000 value and Account Assignment is split in 4 parts 1 CC and 3 WBS element. For this functional are of the Cost Center is passed for all four account assignments rather than passing 4 different functional areas based on each cost element.

Can someone help me understand how the standard functionality works or is there any specific condition in which the responsible cost center Functional Area is picked up instead of WBS element Functional Area.

There are some documents where in case of split accounts system is passing separate functional area for each account assignment. So i am not able to conclude what is the standard function to determine Functional Area.

Regards

Ushir

    Hi Ushir,

    Please look into the WBS, what is the responsible Cost Center assigned to it and check what is the Functional Area maintained for that Cost Center in KS03.

    It might happen that when you have referred to a WBS, the Functional Area is picked from the responsible Cost Center, if it is not maintained in WBS.

    Thanks,

    Hi Akash,

    The scenario you mentioned is correct it will pick up the CC functional area in case there is no functional are on WBS but in our case that is not the case. For all the WBS we have the functional area maintained but still some times the functional area is picked up from responsible cost center of the WBS.

    The problem is we are not able to replicate this in Q or D environment. The documents posted by users in production are pointing to some wrong Functional Area and its not correct.

      Hi Ushir,

      Can you try creating a New project and assign a WBS to it with its Functional Area.

      Please make sure that this WBS is exactly similar to the WBS where you were not able to pick the Functional area earlier.

      If it works fine, then you need to check the old WBS.

      Please share your findings.

      Thanks,

      Akash
