WBS rearrangement and budget issues

We have implemented PS in our system

for the last 6 years. We use mainly

WBSs and PMorders attached to them. We

tried to use IM in the past but we

were not very mature for it. We have

now many projects in the system with

multiple roots, due to a system design

in the past. We want to convert them

to one root projects and activate the

necessary customizing in project

profile. We are planning now to

activate budgeting and availability

control, and this has created the need

for one root per project

Are there any issues with actual

costs, commitments and availability

control? Is it safe to rearrange WBSs

after actual postings have been made,

commitments have been created but no

budget has been set? Are there any side effects in reporting?

We are also wondering if there are any

conflicts regarding reactivating IM at

a later stage, after using PS

budgeting for a while. I suppose we do

not have any issues, because many

companies have started useing PS

budgeting and then implemented IM. Is

this correct?

Thank you in advance for your cooperation

    Hello Vasilios Iliadis,

    Dont change the existing projects. you will end up in many many problems. Once budget is assigned to WBS, you cannot change the structure.

    My suggestion is , Going forward from a particular date, all new projects will be created with new structure. New budget from IM, etcc...

    This will make your life easy.
