    For Demo purposes identify jobs to be matched against survey jobs in your Dev system. Even one provider file with matching jobs should suffice. Follow the steps and you be good to go:

    1. Run transaction PECM_START_JPR_BSP- Start Job Pricing to get into the web application.

    2. Get into Provider Data Workset. Create Provider for demo purposes with unique Provider Code a Provider Name and a URL link to the provideru2019s web site and Save the Provider.

    3. Get into Survey Job Catalog. Select Provider and click on Job Catalog tab for the specific job and review the Market data/ aged market data for a job and review/change the job descriptions.

    4. Get into Import Data workset to upload job-related data from the survey provider to make external salary comparisons between what your organization and other similar companies. Select the data type for import from - Survey Job Catalog/ Survey Job Descriptions/ Survey Market Data. Use Browse function to select the file with the survey data and choose Upload. Select Next Step and Match the fields from the imported file -Provider Field Name Versus Field Name in SAP. Thereafter import the data. and review it thoroughly before saving it to your SAP database tables. key fields to match are Job Code and Job Level(if present).

    5. Get into Job Matching workset to match your internal jobs which you have identified with those of the survey provider. In Create Job Matches screen Internal Jobs and Survey Jobs showup.. Select your identified internal job to match with survey job and the system displays the data for this job and any existing job matches. Evaluate how closely the survey job matched your internal job and specify matching percentage and the weighting factor in the appropriate fields information purposes. Save the results.

    6. If aging functionality needs to be shown then get into the workset else skip it. In this workset aging of the survey provider's data can be carried out either by Market movement rate or by Aging factor

    7. Get into Creating a Mass Composite Result workset create market composites(in your case only one provider) for your identified jobs.

    8. Get into Salary Structure Adjustment workset to compare your internal salary structure to the market salary structure finally. As a prereq have Planned Comp for the identified. Get into Current Salary Structure tab to displays the current salary structure for review, Market Data tab to compare with internal salary structure. and select a composite result, Planned Salary Structure tab to select an existing plan structure from the corresponding dropdown box or from the result created in the Market Data. You could also overwrite the values of this plan structure directly or change the Difference % columns and select Recalculate.

    9. Final step is to save the updated salary structure in Planned status and as a process after management/board approvoval run the report Update of Pay Grade Amounts from Market Data to activate the new structure.

    I hope it helps.
