DIP profile setting

Hi, gud morning, eveybody.

I m working on construction project which requires me tointegrate DIP with PS. i have made the setting as explained in SAP-help and documents provided in BB46, but somehow, i have failed to understand if it is really meeting my requirement. basically i m trying to say, i m not getting the concept of DIP.

1) what do i need to do to make DIP work with planned total records ?

2)where does planned DIP pick up the cost or resorces from and where does it plug it in quotaion if im working with resource related quotation?

3) when i run 'check prifile setting under ' DIP status it says 'not ok' what does it mean how do i turn this arround?

does someone have any really useful document on DIP settings other than help file or can someone explain DIP with setting.

you could mail the doc on <b><REMOVED BY MODERATOR></b>.

Thankyou for reading my query.

gud day all..

    The best documentation on the DIP Profile is contained in OSS Note 301117. It is a pdf file that explains how the DIP Profile works and answers your questions.

    Maintaining Profiles for Sales Order and Billing Request


    The Dynamic Item Processor (DIP) profile defines and controls resource-related quotation and billing for service orders and sales documents. It may be maintained in either the Customer Service or the Sales and Distribution section of the IMG. The DIP profile allows flexible determination and translation of actual labor, material and other costs into sales materials for appropriate pricing and billing.
    DIP profiles BC10 is used exclusively in the value chain for time and material project.
    The DIP profile functionality is closely integrated with the controlling module for the processing of cost objects into sales materials.
    Relevant sales document types, condition records, sales materials have been created.


    Access the activity using one of the following navigation options:

    IMG Menu Project System ® Revenues and Earnings ® Integration with SD documents ® Creating Quotations and Project Billing ® Maintain Profiles for Quotations and Billing
    Transaction Code ODP1




    In the configuration item Profiles for Sales Order, Billing, Results Analysis, choose profiles BC12.

    • The DIP profile can be used for processing resource-related billing and results analysis, as well as for generating resource-related quotations. To do so, sales document types must be defined for each usage. Access the Usage section of the profile and maintain the following entries:

    DI Usage SD Ty BC12

    1 Billing & Results Analysis Z2TC

    all other fields leave blank

    • Access the characteristics section of each profile. The characteristics are the objects which the system will take into consideration when processing and displaying resource-related billing. For both billing and order usages, set the characteristics as follows (note that other settings are automatically defaulted in by the system):

    Characteristic Charact

    Relevant Material Determ NoSummarizat. Structuring Sequence


    Accounting Indicator X

    Activity Type X X X

    Object number X

    Period X

    Transaction Currency X X

    Unit of Measure X X

    all other fields leave blank

    • The sources section determines what type of costs will be selected by the DIP profile for each usage. More detailed selection criteria are available, but not maintained in this setting. Access the sources section of each profile and maintain the following entries:

    Line Source Percentage

    1 0001 Actual Cost - Line 100

    • Access the material determination and criteria sections of the profile. Material determination defines the sales materials that costs will be converted into. The criteria defines cost element groups (cost elements are determined from the labor activity type or the component account assignment) that correspond to each material. For both billing and quotation usages, define material determination as follows:

    Material/Service Material Determination:

    Transfer Quantity/Costs Material Determination:

    Conversion Quantity Criteria:

    Activity Type


    I00342 X (Transfer Cost & Qty) Checked

    I00984 X Checked

    all other fields leave blank

    • To confirm that all entries and settings in the DIP profiles are consistent, go to the configuration item check profile settings. Enter the DIP profile and execute. Green traffic lights should be displayed next to all items for both usages. Otherwise, determine the inconsistency and make the necessary correction.
