Multiple Line Items - PS/SD/ PP - Scenario

Dear Experts,

Please advise on the following:-

There are two products, like Product A - 2 Nos, and Product B - 3 Nos, will be manufactured for a project order.

Finished product will be attached in the project structure and will be manufactured in house through PP module. Material planning will be done thorugh project MRP.

A sales order will be created with two line items, Product A - 2 Nos, and Product B - 3 Nos.

Root level WBS element will be linked with sales order header level for milestone billing.

Is it possible to see the cost and selling price comparison of product A and product B through this settings, as they are different type of product and their selling price are different.

Can the system apportioned the cost of sales based on the selling price of the product A and Product B.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanking you.

Best Regards,

    You can use two different parent WBSE for two product. Mark this as Billing element, assign these two WBSE to the sales order line item. So that you can track cost and Revenue separately for these products.

      This you can do it in two ways:

      1. Make three header under top Product A, 2nd Product B ( as Billing element) and third as Common expense ( only cost). Now 1st & 2 nd WBS, you have to have sales order linking with individual lint item, for third you will accumulate all the common expense till the period end then make a reposting of the same in desired proportion to both products WBS hierarchy

      (This is if you want to have a track on the common expense as planning, budgeting & control)

      After this reposting, run RA for individual billing element and hence you will all the complement detailing and control over Revenue and expense with respect to Product A and Product B individually.

      2. If you don't want to maintain that kind of detailing the common expense and keep track of it through project, then have cost centers accordingly and make an assesment/ distribution with respect to expenses accumulated at those cost centers for the period to the respective WBS under each product. Then execute the period end processes for the project.


      You can try with have two more line items in the costing sheet as an overhead against common expenses with respect each product.

      I hope this should help you.

    You can also use assembly processing for this purpose. It gives you very tight integration between SD and PS. It is easy process to follow with minimum loopholes.
