DBM Order - Profit Center Control



We are facing an issue in DBM Order Profit Center Control (/DBM/CO_PCA).

The business scenario is explained below:

1) Multiple material groups exist (Ex. Accessory, Parts, Service..)

2) Multiple distribution channels exist (Ex. New Car, Accessory Sales, Parts Sales, Vehicle Service...)

3) Multiple Order reasons exist (Ex. Paid Service, Free Service, Body Repair, Repeat repair...)

4) Multiple Profit Centers (PC) exist (Accessory PC, Service PC, Parts PC....)

Business requirement is that based on the material groups selected in the order, the relevant profit center should be hit.

We have configured the settings in /DBM/CO_PCA to fulfill this requirement.


Plant Dist. Channel Division Order Reason Material Group Profit Center

up01 15 10 LABOR PN1NC01WPS


up01 15 10 SPARES PN1NC01WPM

However, when an order is generated, the relevant profit centers are not being hit. Instead, the profit center defined in first line of every group is getting hit for all material groups. In the example listed above, irrespective of the material group selected in the order, only the profit center "PN1NC01WPS" is getting hit.

Can someone assist us in resolving this issue.

Thanks & regards
