Sales order based on wbs actual (settled) costs

Hello Gurus

I've looked for a suitable solution but found none so far.

Dealing with PS and WBS costs rebilled to customer. I have two kind of costs. First one was pretty straight forward and no issue at all: CATS and DP91. Now the second part. I have PO and FI costs. I can settle these costs to a sales document (Debit memo request). Costs are collected on the 2 debit memos mentionned in my settlement rule.

Problem is I'd be more then happy if I could also create a sales doc based on my actual costs (as the DP91 does). Any solution for that? Costs seem to be collected just to calculate a kind of margin, not to be used as billing base.

Thanks in advance for any precious help.

Best regards,

Clifford

It is not clear from your post what exactly you want to achieve from SD side. However, as you may be aware in SD, condition type for cost is VPRS and if you want the system to create a sale order where VPRS be your PR00, it is quite possible with slight change in your pricing procedure.

This sounds like a standard RRB process, you need to check the DIP profile configuration to include all costs.

Dear MM Lakshmipathi and Vitoriano,

Thanks for your quick replies. It's indeed a std RRB process and the DIP profile seems to be OK as the costs collected on my WBS (e.g. MM invoice) are released to my sales order and I can see the costs in VA03 - Environnement - cost report. As such as far as I know, this seems ok.

To clarify my post, on this sales order (debit memo request) I've put a DIEN material, with a quantity and I've also set a sales price (PR00), this would represent my "budget" for this billing (I've done the same for my DP91 process and it works fine). I was expecting same process for those actual costs settled to this sales order (non timesheet/CATS costs). Converting my debit memo request to a debit memo based on actual costs previously settled to this debit memo request. I'm not working in a PP company, just service. So no production, no FERT material, no BOM, Recipe, Process order...

Hope my request is better defined. If you think it worths I give a try to "VRPS" (not used to that), I'll have a look at this.

Thanks for your help guys!

BRs,

Hi Clifford,

I understood that your SD position is a CO object where you post some costs. That you can do for a purpose of P&L reporting or CO-PA settlement, but there is no RRB functionality to run on SD orders as far as I am aware, so that cost is kind of disconnected from billing. So, post it to WBS and not to SD order position.

Regards,

Paulo

Hi Clifford,

as per your post, it seems like you have issue in tracking cost of standard MM process(PO-GR etc).

CATS is based on Activity type and you might have configured in DIP Profile and material determination. Now for PO cost you need to recheck DIP Profile for cost coming based on GL/Cost Elements and determine according to these values then you will get all these cost and then add your required margin for Final Billing (DMR).

Hope this will help you.

thanks

Hi Sunil,

Thanks for your reply. Yes indeed, CATS billing runs fine according to my DIP settings and now I need to find a solution for my GL costs with another DIP profile settings. Settlement rule for my WBS costs is a sales order. Is it the right way (as I can see all the allocated costs in this sales order) but I cannot retrieve them in my sales order item to bill them (adding a margin). Thanks for any help.

There is no point to settle WBS costs to SD order position if they need to be billed to customer, I see that as a system design flaw not reflecting a business process.

Hello Clifford,

As Pauli Stated, this might be Design flaw. you need to redesign this and configure your DIP Profile to Capture cost incurred via GL posting and then Material to be determined based on GL only.

thanks

Sunil
