PS Commitment Reports

Hi PS Experts,

This is my second query on the same subject but with different issue, i am not able to catch the exact reason for this.

I have created Service PR against WBS amounting to 5,000,000 with Qty as 10 AU. At this stage report (S_ALR_87013533) perfectly showing me commitment of 5,000,000.

But While posting partial PO against the same WBS of 500,000 with Qty as 1 AU, the report reverses all the commitment to ZERO which is wrong.

I have created one report on report painter which should show commitment through PR (Value Type = 21) and commitment through PO (Value Type = 22) to check where exactly is the issue.

Logically, the system should behave like as soon as i post PO of 500,000, system should show PR commitment as 4,500,000 (reduced by 500,000) and PO commitment as 500,000 (increased by 500,000) but it blanks out everything. Its clearly a loose of control over budgeting (AVAC).

Can anyone kindly give me clues to solve this issue?

    Hi Zain,

    The SAP logic is different.  PO substitutes the PR, so at the time of PO your idea about the required quantity and vendor is the most updated and most accurate.

    What prevents you to create a PO for the whole value?  Your questions falls into the process design.  Maybe you should ask the MM consultant to use a contract as the umbrella for the global amount.

    Hello Zain,

    All the commitment to Zero is PR commitment i assume

    The systsem is behaving in the exact manner you are seeking.

    The PR and PO at the Business side is still a commitment which does not go Hand in Hand instead it substitues one another

    Instead you need to redefine the process of purchasing while raising a PO from a PR

    Ideally a PO is issued at whole quantity but the goods delivery and invoicing happen item wise or Batch wise

    Try using line item wise reports  CJI5 and check
