New Company code->New Plant

Dear friends,

My client wants to set up a new company code and a new plant under it

What are the minimum configurational steps required in order to create a purchase order for this plant

The requirement is to track costs for equipment purchased against the budget, internal order needs to be created for each line item and each equipment asset.

Please guide me how to go about it in terms of processes and configuration step- and how much timeline it requires to set it up to obtain these functionality

I’m very new to internal order and fixed assets. Please help me out

    You need to consider this as a project.

    Where and why have the new Company Code/ Plant come about?

    Is it a split of the existing Org structure or have you bought a new Company?

    You need to consider extending customer, vendors, GL accounts, Cost Centers, Profit Centers, IO's Material Masters.

    I am currently working with a client who is doing a similar job and we have quoted then 70+ days.

    They are looking at Sales Org implications as well as transfer pricing, inter-Company transfers etc.

    <b>There is no need to the level of going to operaing concern and setting up SD module.

    You need to have FI configuration in place for company code and the related settings

    CO module - for cost center and Internal order

    MM module related settings

    You also need to have AM related configuration.

    Without really seeing the requirement no one can talk about the detailed configuration. At least you need to configure the above areas</b>.

    Thanks for your quick response guys, we already have everything set up,

    Client/Operating Concern/Controlling area is already set up.

    No, its not a split of the existing Org Structure, the client have a new plant bought that needs to be set up in the system and it comes under a new company code, they need to have a separate BS and P&L reporting requirement for this one.

    We DON’T need a new controlling area required

    The client does not use Business area or Distribution Channel.

    The immediate requirement is to have a equipment tag no.(bought for this plant) as a link/reference for fixed asset, internal order

    My questions are:

    Whenever a purchase order is created we have an internal order created for each line item (which is always going to be equipment)

    Now what do I have to do to set this equipment as an asset?

    Do I need to settle the internal order to cost center or Fixed Asset?

    If I copy the new company code from an existing one, what are the settings that are copied into the new company code?

    They already have internal order configuration done, do I need to add anything to this

    For settlement rule, they have internal order settling to AUC(Asset under construction), which is not my case, I need Fixed Asset

    What configuration setting do I need for this?

    Thanks for all your help guys, any input is appreciated. Please reply
