How to get Activity cost zero in M. O. without getting costing error.

Hi Guru Ji,

My client wants work duration in Maintenance order but dont want Activity cost. If I maintain the activity type of workcenter as zero, costing error status pop up at the time of order release.

If i maintain the activity type 1 paisa, some cost will be introduce to order.

Can there is any way, so that we can have work duration in maintenance order, without getting any cost.

Note: We are confirming using collective order confirmation method & pulling the actual data maintained in Maintenance order while confirming.

Thanks in advance

Santosh

    Hi,

    Have you tried by maintaining Zero Price in KP26 against activity & cost center?

      Hi,

      Follow this path & link.

      Plant Maintenance and Customer Service -> Maintenance and Service Orders -> Functions and Setting for Order Types -> Costing Data for Maintenance and Service Orders -> Assign Costing Parameters and Results Analysis Keys

      Remove the costing variant for the order type.

      Actual Cost not displayed on PM Orders

      Regards,

      Maheswaran.

    Hi Santosh

    If you are using internal control key so you can uncheck option of costing in Control key or you can also make changes in costing variants in which make activity price determination option as Blank (ie no price determination).

      1)By maintaining activity type with base unit year & maintaining activity rate as 0.01 paisa, solved my problem.

      2)Other option of removing cost element assignment to value categories, i think may raise costing error.

      3)Option third also helpful by deactivating cost relevant.

      Thanks for suggestion.
