Capture Labor cost in PM Order

Hi all;

I have a question for you.

I am have 3 mechanics at plant with different hourly rates for activity internal labor LABO.

We created a work center for each of this mechanic and assigned to a cost center 110010 with activity LABO and hourly rate.

Technician Rate Acitivity

T1 $10/Hr LABO

T2 $20/Hr LABO

T3 $30/Hr LABO

I wan to capture a cost of individual technician who has worked on PM order.

e.g. If technician T2 worked on a PM order 1 for 3 hours and T1 worked for 2 hours, I should be able to capture $60 + $20 = $80.

Can I capture this information after settlement of PM order??

How this can be done??

    You should be able to capture the same at the time confirmation of the operation using transactions IW41 or IW42 or IW44 or CAT2. Make sure to use the right activity type when entering the same in the above transactions.

    Hi,

    For activity type LABO, you can assign only one price may be 10 or 20 or 30. So create two more activity type assign the required price. In workcenter assign these activity types..

    Now you can see the individual activity price in the order and after settlement.

    Hi Tridev,

    1) For 3 mechanics u need to create 3 different Act types.

    2) Do Price Planning for all 3 Act types in KP26 with resp price.

    3) Assign all 3 Act types to single Work Center in IR01/02. ( not need to create seperate Work centers for Act types)

    4) while processing of Order, u need to choose respective Act Types to capture cost of resp Technician. (If 2 Technician

    worked for a maint activity, u can mention their Act types to capture their cost in two different operations.)

    I hope it might clear ur doubts, plz correct me if i was wrong....

    Regards,

    Amol.

      Its good that you would not have to create extra ones. But that brings up another question. If the user is going to specify different activity types in the work order based on different labor, isn't that a kind of dispatching? If that is the case, i'd rather go with 10 Work Centers (which aren't dummy work centers but represent Employees). Or, is it for one entity that "charges" different labor rates for different services which are determined during Work Order creation?
