FM Budget consumption in asset accounting

Dear Experts,

Need your Help.

We need to implement the funds management in our client.

I am new to FM.

1 ) Business Requirement - Initially Department “ABC” procures the Assets and issues to the respective department say” XYZ” department (using ABUMN - Asset transfer within company code to different asset class).

Budget values in ABC Department Before issuing the asset to the XYZ Department.


Total budget Commitments Actuals Availability Budget

My client doesn’t want to consume the budget at XYZ Department (Receiver )when we transfer the asset from ABC to XYZ Department. So I decided to create the acquisition GL(Receiver asset) as a dummy commitment ( Statistical).

Note : Due to some reporting requirements I would like to transfer to different asset class during ABUMN.My client doesn’t want to consume the budget at XYZ Department (Receiver )when we transfer the asset from ABC to XYZ Department. So I decided to create the acquisition GL(Receiver asset) as a dummy commitment ( Statistical).

Here my doubt is what is the impact in the ABC department after issuing the asset ? I mean any changes in Actuals and availability Budget ?

I am not sure but If it increases the availability budget from 9000 to 10000 then how to control that ? is there any control like not to consider for specific Asset transaction types etc. ?

2) Similarly we have consumables in addition to Assets.

we issue the consumables from ABC Department to XYZ with movement type 201 ( Account assignment K – Cost center).

During procurement, the system will consume the budget from ABC department. This is fine.

But my client doesn’t want to consume the budget at XYZ Department when we issue the consumables from ABC to XYZ Department. So I decided to create the Consumption GL as a dummy commitment ( Statistical).

As requested above what will be the impact in the ABC Department Availability budget and actuals.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    It would be more correct to derive dummy commitment item for the entire transfer operation and not just on receiver side. You can build a rule in FMDERIVE where such a commitment item is derived based on business transaction for asset transfer. The best way to build such a rule in your case is to set a trace in FMDERIVE, initiate the transfer and on the trace screen see what information on the source fields is available which would help you identifying the nature of the operation. Most probably, you would be satisfied by 'business transaction' field or 'document type' (if you foresee a separate document type for assets transfers).

    Regards,

    Eli
