Funds Mangment Issue

Hi

We are using the Funds Management module for OPEX budgeting for Maintenance Activities. The Maintenance Order is created and external services procured against more than one Cost Element. The FM Derivation Rule only derives the Commitment Item for only one of the multiple Cost Element, hence only one Commitment is generated.

Is there any standard functionality or enhancement for achieving the above mentioned objective? It is totally not practical to create separate Maintenance Orders for every line item of the external service. What other options do we have for this?

Regards

Iftikhar

    Hi,

    Normally, commitment will be created against every single line in the document (does not matter, if it's a maintenance order or some other logistic document). Try to activate a trace for your derivation strategy in FMDERIVE while creating such an order and analyze the situation.

    • Hi,

      If you want commitment item to be derived depends on the expense line (and not common for the whole order), you have to switch off this element from PM-FM integration. Go to IMG - Public Sector Management - Funds Management Government - Actual and Commitment Update/Integration - Integration - Maintain Field Status for Assigning FM Account Assignments. Choose type '03' and define fund centre only (if you do not use funds) as required field and CI as optional field.

      Account Assignment Derivation (FMDERIVE) can be used to derive the commitment item either from the G/L account or the cost element for automatically generated purchase requisitions, material reservations, goods issues or revenue postings.
