Labor cost for a PM Order


Thanks in advance.

I have created a PM order to which a componenet x is assigned. Since the component x is a non-stock material, a PO is made based on PM Order and procure from a supplier. A settlement rule also created & assigned to a cost center. After the receipt, the RM cost is updated to the PM order. Then component x is used for repair a machine (replacement of component y) manually which involves Work duration 30 hrs (Number X Opn duration). A activity type 'Repair' which is well defined for hour rate, Full settlement 100% & assigned to a cost center / cost element.

Hereafter I'm facing two constraints

1. Labor cost is not getting updated / included in the costs (Actual costs)

2. When I select Business closing, it gives error 'Balance of not zero'.

How do i proceed further, pls help me. If answered, i will give you full rating.

    Please check out below points

    1)Have you able to see the Planned cost for Labour??? If yes Do IW41 for Work order then actual cost will be posted to order.

    2)If not able to see the planned cost and actual cost then->Have you assign the Costing Variant to Valuation variant in OKP6.if yes-> Have You assign the Valuation Variant To Order that Order Type ??? If not please assign it in TC OIOF.after maintaining above settings in SPRO Create the New Order and then see the COST TAB

    You can not do buisness completion before consumption of material (MIGO)or labour hour planned against ordere

    Can you please tell me whether the planned cost of the activity is displaying in "Cost" tab or not?

    If yes, how do you did that?
