How to copy project with Resource in PPM NWBC?

Hello Experts,

Please pardon me to ask such an elementary question, since I am not so good at SAP. The question asked from one of our PLM clients. They have the need to copy an existing project with the resource: staffing, tasks. After several tests, I found when I copy from an existing project, the resource will not be copied. Then how can I configure so that we can copy project with Resource?

I would highly appreciate your suggestion and tuition, and thanks for your patients to offer the step by step guide.

in the standard, the staffing is not copied when you copy a project. In case you want to copy the staffing, you need to implement BAdI DPR_ATTRIBUTES with method CTRL_COPY_PROJECT and following code:

ls_control_line-name = 'RemoveStaffing'.

ls_control_line-value = ' '. " copy the staffing

append ls_control_line to ct_control_copy.

This way, you can deactivate the removal of staffings.

This is also explained in the attachments of SAP note 1769591.

There is one more alternate for your query you can try using standard project template. You can staff the resources in standard project template & during project creation you can use this template then while copying you will get resources assigned/staffed for the roles, this is on EP but I didn't tried on NWBC.

Thanks & regards,
