Material Type

Hi,

We have to charge our customers for consulting and the number of hours to be charged can vary depending on the project.

How can I create a material/service so that it has confirmations associated with it? Which material type should I use?

I do not want to use DIEN as it does not allow posting of confirmations.

Please help me out.

Sincerely,

Ketan

    Hi Ketan,

    It sounds like you are trying to create Customer Service order in PM which allows you to create confirmations and then billing to your customers.

    With Customer Service Order (PM order type SM02), you don't need to use material masters (just one reference material needs to be created for config). The confirmations are against labour.

    Hope this helps.

    Phyllis.

    Hi Ketan,

    As I mentioned before, customer service order is created in PM using IW31 with order type SM02. Here you enter the customer details, the Sales Area data and a DIP profile which can be configured in ODP1.

    SAP default setting links PM order type SM02 to Sales Order type IRC. So after saving the customer service order, a sales order will be created. This sales order can then be billed using DP90.

    This is really a SD or PM question, you may get more help in those forums.

    Phyllis.
