Internal Projects Execution

Hello Friendz,

I am relatively new for SAP PS as from MM background, i would be needing your help in Project systems for Internal Project Executions. The Structure could be like Internal Project which will have a level 1 WBS as Planning, Procurement ( Material, Labor, Service), Commissioning. Now i want to know in details How to go about Procurement of Labor.

As far as some sort of an information gathering one way is CATS where and employee or worker is categorically mapped or assigned for a project and its consumption or usage is recorded in project s per the defined labor Hour defined.

But i would be needing your help where it is generic and then Labor is classified as Skilled, Semi Skilled and Expert with different different per hour rates for Projects. I want to procure labor based on these three categories for my internal project.

Please elaborate and explain the steps in doing so with constructs like Work Centers etc...

Thanks in Advance.

    Hi Ash,

    There are many ways to categorize based on the system you have.

    1. You can categorize skill, semi skilled in Activity types. The rates are determined based on this.

    2. You can categorize in Work centers.

    3. If you assign people to Network activity or if you have lean staffing, then you can categorize in Employee master.

    Based on the above you can procure services for labor.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

      Hello Mohan and All,

      My issue is resolved.

      The problem was that i had Planned this Project spanning from 2016 to 2017. I had also maintained KP26 accurately for all my Activity types. But just for the year 2016 for all Activity types and not for 2017 and that was the reason that it was not popping up in my project Internal Activity Screen as shown below. But when i maintained for 2017 for my all Activity types it got populated in for my Internal Activities and have successfully processed.

      Thanks... sometimes it is sheer common sense that prevails than doing all those crude configurations. Awarding points for all who have helped me including Srinivasan and Sammar.

      One more thing Labour Activity cost will be added to Planned Values in Report only once these are released right in Project and then will popup in report S_ALR_87013532. Please comment.
