Hi,

May i know what is the function of"Limit" tab under Item for a service

po?

1)What is the overall limit purpose.

2)There is a sub-tab call"Other limit" with "No limit" ticked.

What is the impact if i unticked the No limit?

Thank you.

    Hi,

    The purpose of overall limit is to control the service value. You can't avail service against that po more than the value mentioned in overall limit.

    No limit function indicates, there is no value limit and you can avail unlimited services against that PO.

    In creation of Service PO, you have two options for values.

    1. On Service Tab in Item detai, you can maintain Services with quantities and values. The total of this view will be the PO value.

    2. Or you can maintain value in limits field so that you can enter the unplanned services etc. in the Service Entry Sheet.

    Hi,

    Hi, Please refer to the Online documentation: Material Management -> External Services Management -> Procurement of Services: Processes -> Accelerated and Simplified Processes -> Use of Value Limits (for Unplanned Services) Inside this documentation, it is stated that there is a variety of limits (combinations) to be used:- - Overall limit only - Overall limit and limit on services covered by contract item(s) - Overall limit, limit on services covered by contract item(s), - and other limit - Overall limit and other limit - Overall limit on services from model specifications or standard service catalog - Expected value.

    The expected value is used in the update of the PO item value and this is the value used in the release strategy. Here is the f1 help: Expected value - ESUH-COMMITMENT Value that the unplanned services (or the materials) covered by this item are not expected to exceed. Use If you are working with the release (approval) procedure for purchasing documents, this value serves as the basis for a release strategy applied to this document.

    If you tick 'No limit',you don't need to enter 'Overall limit',but must enter 'Expected value'. Because 'Expected value' will affect the release strategy. Please read the note 440601 connected to this:

    The expected value has to be mandatory in case only limits are

    maintained in a purchasing document due to release strategie and commitment figures.

    The expected value is added to the total value of planned services

    of the purchasing document.

    For example, a PO with ONLY unplanned services /materials

    (only limits maintained), the expected value builds the net value.

    In such a case Controlling derives the purchase commitment figure

    only from this value.

    Concerning the variability of actual cost of a purchase order,

    expected value means that the unplanned services (or materials)

    covered by this item are not EXPECTED to exceed.

    It is not mandatory that it has the same value like total limit value.

    Expected value can exceed, it is used for comparison with total limit

    value in cost control.

    Expected value can also be combined with unlimited total limit in a

    purchasing document.

    Regards, Edit
