    No constraints from system if you wish to use PS for Opex Projects.

    If it's a real project (refer definition of project) you can capture the Operational Expense using WBS's (projects) otherwise you use cost centre or internal orders as cost objects.

    Budgeting would be possible if you use WBS or IO but not cost centre.

    Hi Nies,

    If your customer is a manufacturing/process industry you can use the Investment management to hold OPEX budget and distribute to WBS which contains service orders, maintenance orders attached.

    If your customer is public sector then you can use budgeting functionality from Funds Managment (BCS).

    You can also try using budget categories in investment management to capture both capex and opex for the same WBS
