Budget equal to total planned cost

Hi experts,

Is there anyway to have a check while saving the project in CJ20N that the rolled up cost of the top WBS is equal to the Budget allocated to the top WBS?As for my client the Budget allocation at top WBS and Project cost planning further down the structure are with two different departments,They always want both the values to be same.So if the Project engineer plans the cost in the project it should total up and match the budget at top WBS..

Suggestions please

    Hi,

    Standard Business practice generally followed is Planning first and Budgetting Next.

    And Allocated Budget generally will be at the most equal to the total planned value or less.

    In your scenario , is it not possible to adopt the same.

    That for a project , planning department do the cost planning first then budgettting department allot budget accordingly.

    In such case, in CJ30 , they can copy total planned value as is. Budget allocation then becomes simple.

    Thanks

      Hi SAI,

      When the Accounts Open the Project ID after creation of the Contract, they create the Project definition and top level WBS and put the budget at the top level and lock the budget .After this the project dept further break down the WBS plan the budget down the line.

    hi,

    if you want original budget to be always equal to planned cost, you need to let ABAPer create a program that would automatically maintain the values from planned cost to original budget..

    or else you need to maintain in CJ30 my copying the planned budget.. you can use Edit > copy view then select from total planned cost.

    regards.
