Org Structure for a Service Industry


Hi All,

We are discussing the Org Structure for a Service Industry (BPO). The Project is basically u201CProject Systemsu201D driven.

We are having one Head Office in Delhi & two Branch Offices in Mumbai & Ranchi.

We do procurement of the following:

Hardware, Software, Office Consumable, Services like AMC for Printers, PC Hiring, EPBX Systems & Maintenance etc.

The decision of procurement is done by the Central Procurement Team here in Delhi where as the respective Materials (service & asset) are received at the respective locations Mumbai & Ranchi.

We are going to create Purchase Orders for Services & Assets. Consumable Purchase will be handled directly by FI.

We will be creating the followings:

Company Code: 1000

Purchasing Organization: 1000

Plant u2013 1000 (Delhi Office)

Purchasing Group: 100 u2013 Delhi Office, 101 u2013 Mumbai Office, 102 u2013 Ranchi Office

Storage Location: NONE

Since there is no Material (like raw materials, packaging) involved, we are not planning to create Storage Location.

We are treating the Delhi Office as a Plant. We will not treat Mumbai & Ranchi Office as Plants. We will track the Purchase for Mumbai/ Ranchi based on the Purchasing Group.

Pls. note that we are going to use Business Area.

Should I go with above MM Org Structure (with no Storage Location)?

(Note: I have posted the same Query earlier also)
