Project time and fixed price

Hi experts,

This might sound simple or easy to experts. Iu2019m left with no choice to post this in this forum as I have very less knowledge on PS billing.

Please assist me in below scenario on how it can be done in SAP PS.

Scenario.

Its project based billing.

The monthly billing is done based on plan dates of completion of an activity/WBS. The plan dates might change.

The rates are fixed per consultant per phase.

For eg :

In SAP implementation for Blue print the plan dates are,

From date To

Consultant 15.2.2009 30.4.2009

So the Monthly Billing from 2nd month to 4th month. That is

No of days billed Rate day Amount

February 13 days $120 $1560

March 31 days $120 $3720

April 30 days $120 $3600

Is this possible ?

There is also a requirement on actual time spent and plan time comparison on each activity and I know that this can be done through CATs

I refereed Building block J46 which talks about Project with Fixed Price and time and material billing and also tried, but did not work out.

The expenses will not be flowing into PS and only the revenue will be generated.

Appreciate, if some one can tell me whether if this is possible.

Thanks,

Chandru

      Hello Chandru,

      You could use milestone billing in this case. Create a WBS with Activities for different phase and mainati the duration on activities accordingly. Assign milestone to activities and configure the system for milestone billing. Whenever you confirm the activity the dates will get copied to milestone. Create billingpaln accordingly, whch copies date from milestone.

      Let us see what other experts have to say.

      Thanks
