  • Well, that's a bit basic. Should you want to see how FM works in terms of integration with MM, FI or other SAP modules, start with on PSM-FM. The information provided there is quite exhaustive for basic understanding of integration points

    Hi Friends ;

    Thanks for previous replies

    Departments have Cost Centers under responsibilities for certain Material , Assets Procurements.Therfore for Material and Assets Central Purchasing for all enterprise are in place.Those budget items is calculated from cost centers responsibles but central purchasing handle purchasing and budget control and inform them consumed budget.

    Cost Centers have other Budget rows also which are responsible themselves.

    We have Capital Expenditure separate from Current Expenses.They charge to Asset Under Construction.

    In terms of SAP , Budget Control is for some purchase material & Assets are executed in PR,Some controlled in PO the rest is controlled in Finance .

    I would like to know the configuration steps in SAP for SAP Commitment Items and Fund Centers for above assumptions.



  • You should always opt for commitment items representing G/Ls and fund centres representing centres of activities, e.g. cost centres.

    Other settings, though possible in theory, could become potential obstacle for correct integration of business flows.
