Travel management to Project Systems standard integration without Fund Management


Dear All,

We are facing issue in travel management for below given standard scenarios.

We want to book travel cost/ expenses against WBS. Cost object will be a WBS. The respective WBS will have budget & plan values for the year of posting. We have not implemented fund management and would be unable to do so.

Now the issue is

  1. When trip request is generated & approved, it is not updating estimated travel cost as commitment against a respective WBS budget
  2. When trip is getting settled still the commitment is not getting updated
  3. If a trip is modified/deleted and saved, the committed amount is not getting modified / updated accordingly.
  4. When we post trip cost to finance that time if budget is exceeded system is not allowing it to post which is correct. But till the time of FI posting, there is no information on commitment or probable consumption of budget due to trip cost.

Isn't budgeting, Commitment update and availability controls all standard scenarios in project system.

Shouldn't it also work for any expenses booking scenarios for travel management.

Please advise.
