How does the flow of costs works in SAP PM?

Dear Experts,

I just wonder how SAP PM handle the flow of costs from the point the maintenance order is created to the point of completion.

And also where do all the costs pre-recorded such as man-hour rate, is it in the "work center" master or somewhere else?

Regards,

Abraham

    Abraham,

    In PM Cost which is @ PM order , after TECO , Order has to settle (KO88) , Now Cost is @ Order After settlement depends on settlement rule cost post against cost centre of work centre ( Company ) or Cost centre of reference object. and then Cost on PM order will be Zero , now u can CLSD that order with Zero value.

    Hope this will help you.

    All debits to the orders can be posted once the order is released.

    This includes time, material consumed, material procured etc.

    Once the order is completed the debits (costs) can be settled as required

    Please read SAP help for more details

    The man hour rate is stored in activity pricing for combination of activity type / cost centre. The cost centre is stored in the work centre to provide the link

    Hi,

    first of all, let me wish you all a blessed new year..

    As far as I know, there are 3 types of costs, estimated cost, planned costs and actual costs. When and where all these 3 types of costs recorded in SAP PM?

    regards,

    Abraham

      As said by riaz Maner,i dont think actual costs get posted after settlement

      Planned costs are posted after the realease of the order

      Actual Costs are posted after the confirmations(goods issue,service entry sheet,time confirmations etc.,)

      Costs are settled in the settlement to the respective cost center mentioned(reference technical object or work center cost center).these costs are credited to order and debited from the costcenter
