Labour cost should not settle to cost center but display in order


As per the settlement profile the cost accumulated in work order will be settled to the cost center .

PM work order contains different types of costs like labour cost , material cost,service cost, for all these types different cost elements are assigned in the allocation structure .

While settling a PM work order labour cost should not be settled to cost center but the cost should display in work order and other costs to be settled to cost center as per the settlement profile .

Please suggest

Thanks in advance

    But if the labour costs stay on the order (ie not settled) then you won't be able to close your order (CLSD)??

    I dont think this is possible...

    But try to post the cost of the labour to a particular cost center... such that... u can make the cost center dummy...

    Other wise... if u dont need the labour cost... avoid entering labouring hours in the operation tab

    Dear Gangadhar,

    If you do not settle labour cost, order will remain with that cost, which must be settled against some cost center, etc. So that order will get credited with that amount and actual cost will become zero. And further order can be closed too.

    Hello Gangadhar,

    i have some solution for this query.

    Please let me knw

    - Do U only want to settle cost other than Labour cost ?

    - if u only want see the Labour cost & not to settle that cost, then it is not possible to close the maintenance order as replied by many other friends.

    - Or ur query is that you want to settle ur labour cost in one cost center & rest of cost in other cost center?

    Please clearify me so that i can suggest you any answer.

      Hi Gangadhar,

      This is very much possible to settle cost to two different cost recievers.

      For that you need to notice some of the points:

      - If u want to settle cost of any Technical object on two different cost recievers, you need not to maintain cost center in the master data of Technical object.

      - In settlement Profile, you have to select whether u want to settle cost in percentage/amount or in equivalence number along with possible cost recievers (e.g.- Cost center/WBS/Profit Segment/Material/Order)

      - In Maintenance Order, u need to define settlement rule manually & tell to the system that what amount or what percentages. u want to settle at which cost reciever.

      -In Customizing, u need to maintain the Allocation Structure

      Source :

      Settlement Cost elements :

      Go with these points, i am sure u will get ur solution .
