WBS for two company codes

Dear Experts,

This requirement is for an IT service project.

The process is - I have two company codes Comp code 1 & Comp code 2, In which Project is created in company code 1. Employees are assigned to project to onsite & offshore from company code 2. This means the employees are created in the company code 2. But working for the project in Comp.code 1. Comp code 2 get revenue thru intercompany billing based on number of hours/days the employee worked in the project created by the com. code 1. The employee books the timesheet in comp code 1 against the project id.

To acheive this

1) i need to maintain same project for two company codes?

2) Or same project, one wbs for one company code & other wbs for another company code?

Will the above two possible to work in SAP? or

anyother we i can workaround this

Please advise

    This is possible through Resouce Related billing in PS.

    For e.g. Consider business scenario, where we have created T-10006 as a customer project.

    Now this project is mapped using a work breakdown structure that contains activities.

    The activities define the flow of the project and form a quantity structure for determining costs and payment data automatically.

    The project cost plan is used to create quotations.

    When the sales order is received, it is assigned to the project. This means that it can be used to plan revenue and then post this revenue.

    Actual costs are entered when activities are confirmed, components are purchased and when invoices are assigned. Actual revenue is posted to the project by means of milestone billing.

    Two companies are responsible for executing project T-10006.

    Company 'A' is mapped using company code 1000 and performs all services except for those planned in WBS element T-10006.1.2.

    Comapny 'B' is mapped using company code 2000 and performs some of the engineering services. (WBS element T-10006.1.2).

    Here Comapny 'B' bills its services to Company 'A' on a resource-related basis.

    A results analysis is carried out for the billing elements T-10006 und T-10006.1.2 in the project.

    The results analysis values are settled to the profitability segment.

      Let us say you get Customer project for Supply of Turbine to Customer.

      This project is mapped using WBS elements as follows.

      T-10006.0 - Management

      T-10006.1 - Engineering

      T-10006.2- Planning

      T-10006.3- Purchasing

      T-10006.4- Production

      T-10006.5- Assembly

      Each WBS will contain different activities relevant to specific section like Engineering,Planning,Purchasing etc.

      Now let us say there are two WBS elements T-10006.1.1 & T-10006.1.2 under

      WBS element T-10006.1 ( Engineering).

      WBS element T-10006.1.1 is mapped using company code 'A' & performs all engineering services except those specialised services which are planned in WBS element T-10006.1.2.

      (This WBS element i.e T-10006.1.2 is mapped using company code 'B').

      I hope it is clear now.

    As far as I know you cannot have the same project under 2 company codes, if they are under the same controlling area.

    You can have different WBS elements attached to different company codes under the same project.

    For the scenario you gave, the best solution looks to be going for Resource Related Billing.

    Check the following link under Revenues & earnings > Resouce related billing for more info.
