    In standard you have to create 5 order with the the equipments for which the cost to be distributed , or i think there is some user exit where the cost will be distributed if the equipments where specified in the object list

      In addition, if there are more equipments under one Functional location & cost history is not required to capture at equipment level, then in Header Main Functional Location will be defined. In Object list, all the equipments will be defined. So that, it is possible to have link between equipments & operations.

      [Object List|]

      You can see the Maintenance Orders report as normal. IW39 will not be a problem. There's a flag on the selection field (Incl Object List) to tell the system to look also in the object list.

      Cost Distribution - I feel you can create settlement rule as per Object List equipments by mentioning % in that. For example, if there are 5 equipments, then define settlement profile with 5 different settlement receivers 20% each as per the equipment.

      But this also updates only CO documents. But as per PM concerned, you cant distribute the cost.

    Hi , Try this

    There are two things to be considered .First how much Maintenance Order(MO) business wants to create & how to pass maintenance cost to it.

    If business wants to create a single order then you can use object list functionality & Mention this order number in the Purchase order account assignment . One more way is to create a cost center for external agencies.In Purchase order mention this cost center as account assignment & take services. In maintenance order use "Activity Type" to pass different costs . By confirming "Activity type" in MO this cost center will be credited . And when purchase order is processed cost center will be debited.


    If business wants to create seperate order for each equipment , then use "Activity type" to pass costs to MO as explained above.
