split valuation for material component in CJ20N

Dear PS experts,

     we have an issue about how to split the valuation of the same material to different GL accounts.

Example :

     we have material cement in construction project and we want to create PR for the same material in different WBS element plumbing and skeleton.
but when the PR +reservation issued from the project we need to redirect the posting in specific GL.:

Villa project :
                        Skeleton WBS

                                    Material cement PR + reservation for WBS.

                        Plumbing WBS

                                    Material cement PR + reservation for WBS.

Material cement is the same material but when buying this material for skeleton work it will post on the GL skeleton work and when buying this material for plumbing work it will post on the GL plumbing work for a financial purpose.

the material management consultant suggested to use material split valuation and to assign valuation type for this material while assigning this material to any activity but in CJ20N we don't have valuation type field to put the valuation type skeleton or plumbing !!!!!!!

IS there any solution for this problem how to be handled PS, MM and FI.

    Hi Ahmed,

    I think split valuation is primarily used when same material has two different prices (maybe one bought and one produced internally) and not for its usage, so that is conceptually wrong from a starting point.

    Next, cement is still the cement and I do not see a need to account for it on different P&L GL accounts, instead your project can have two different network activities to reflect and split between skeleton and plumbing.  That is not a kind of analytical dimention to show up on chart of accounts, but instead on a project structure.

    Same employee can be performing both activities, but I doubt that you will split it at GL account level.

    • To use delivered Cost Center Reporting you would need to settle the PS costs to a Cost Center.  What is your settlement processes?  Settle to COPA, Cost Centers, etc?

      On a WBS there are 2 fieds which can hold Cost Centers (Responsible and Requesting CC) they are intended for capital projects where you settle to an AuC, but you can repurpose them as a "link" for reporting and then develop custom reports.

      In CO costs are posted to a CO object, Cost Centers and WBS are both CO objects.  Your WBS structure has the separation you want, if oyu settle to a cost center the costs will be mixed again.

      You can see CO reports via WBS's, these are the deliverd PS reports.

    Completely true but he Wants that because he wants to see the costs from a point of view which different to the point of view of the project manager.
    we are assigning a profit center to each project is this can help me to put the hierarchy structure of the profit center to the WBS elements under the project.
    can this solution help me ???

    • Hi Ahmed,

      To get a Cost Center view on a project you can just select the PS report that takes a Cost Center hierarchy to rearrange the structure, so top nodes will be Cost Centers and below the WBS-elements that are assigned to them.

      Profit Centers are an option, but that is a heavy one. Normally it makes sense when you want to see a revenue split, and not an alternative costing view.
