Problem in Assembly Processing in Project System

Hello All,

My Client want to implement Assembly Processing. We have configured the system as per SAP Standard. we are testing this in Quality System along with SD & PP Modules. we have template which contain Material WBS Process WBS & Other Cost WBS But we are getting all cost of material and process cost on one Material WBS after Production order confirmation. How can we divide this cost separately for Material & Process WBS.

As SAP Standard Process we maintained activities for different process also but when we tested this we are not clear about the use of these activities. We are not getting any cost or don't have any relation in any way for these activities.

Please Help me about this Assembly Process.

Thanks

Warm Regards

Sunil

    Hi Sunil,

    For Assembly processing the following are the steps we need to follow.

    Master Data required

    1. Create a Standard WBS

    2. Create a Standard Network

    3. Finished Product that is required to manufacture through assembly process.

    4. in T.code CN08 define the relation between Materail/Std WBS/Std Network/Network Type/Network Profile

    Settings required In SD Module

    1. Define Requirement class with Network type as PS01 or PS04 and with account assignment cat as Q project make to order iif you want all operational as well as materials cost to be accounted at project level with assembly option as 2.

    2. define the requirement type and assign the requirement class to requirement typw.

    Note: standard settings available in SAP or we can define by our own also.

    3. Create a seperate sales document type if required.

    Settings in PS

    1. In PS if you want all the opeartional cost also to be accounted for at project level from planning onwards then set in t.code OPSV "order level updating" ensure check box for 10 and 20.

    Settings in PP

    I. Create BOm in T>code CS01

    2. Creating Routing for the production operations

    Note: For routing we need workcenter and activity types defined already. Cost for activity type in KP26. Not these activity costs related costelements should be part of product costing for cost to flow in all reports as to know the cost of finished product.

    Settings in MM

    In material master in MRP view we need to set the MRP Group and strategy group relevant for assembly process. As Strategy will have requirement type.

    Process in SD/PS/PP

    1. Create a Inquiry in VA11

    2. Create Quaotation in VA21 wrf to Inquiry

    3. Create a Sales order in VA01, while creating sales order, as soon as we assign the material component in SD line item a pop will come for entering std wbs, std ntw, network profile. once we enter this at bottom we can see that scheduling is carried out. Note: if we define material/std wbs/std ntw in CN08 then pop will not come. Now check for errors and save the sales order, at bottom we can see that project order is created. Note: Project number is same as sales order no:

    4. in Billing plan tab at item level we can see the milestones for new project.

    5. In Sales order we can see that billing lock is set against the milestones.

    6.Now open the project in Cj20n and go to network we can see sales order no with line item no.

    7. Now verify the mile stones in the project.

    8 .check the requirement list in MD04 against the Finished product we can see that requirement is generated againt project wrt to sales order.

    9. Run MRP in MDBT/MD02/MD01, based on procurement type in MM , PR's and Pld order will generated. Note: ALL PR's and PLD Orders are account assigned to WBS.

    10. Now do Pr >PO >GR>(ALL all accounted against project.

    11. Convert Pld order to Production order > release the order > Goods issues against production order.

    12. Confirm the Procution order wrt routing operation one by one in CO11N.

    13. in cost element reports at projects we can see the cost breakup for all production activities as well as for material.

    14. settle the production order.

    15. conform all activities in Project.

    16. Do billing in SD as when when mile stone reaches to post actual revenues.

    17. run RA in KKA2 and save the RA results

    18. Run settlement in CJ88

    19. set the status of Project as Teco and Clsd.

    Pl if you need any more details pl feel free to contact.

    thanks

    regards

    • Hi RSVRMurthy,

      Thanks for your reply.

      I have referred the above Process by Gubbala but this is standard setting for this process.

      whereas i want some clarification about this process. please check previous post regarding clarification. some mail problems are:

      -In sales order i don't see any milestone or any type of setting. can you please tell me about this we are not able to execute milestone billing in our case.

      -Adding milestone but no effect in billing

      -When we execute this MRP this is not picking requirement from project. BOM created by CS01. if we assign material to activity than this MRP is picking requirement from project.

      -Not using any settlement

      -Sageregation of cost of material and process differently.

      Please help if you can

      Thanks

      Sunil

    • Hi Amal,

      "I think the process that you have seems to be not correct/or not clearly explained here."

      We have executed this process without milestone and trying for the process using milestone. Our problem is to segregate the cost of material and process where currently we are getting both cost on Material WBS only.

      "If you produce material using PP then the BOM components can't be in project structure and it is not the SAP standard assembly processing."

      We have executed this process by assigning Finished good to activity but according to me this can be executed without assigning material to any activity by creating WBS BOM. am i right?

      "If you use network for producing the finished good, then you can have activities defined only for Process and only for material and these could be assigned to different WBS for cost reporting as process and material separately."

      This can be solution but client want to produce good using PP Module.

      "If you are using production order for producing finished good, then you can look at settlement as an option to seggregate the costs and settle to two different WBS for reporting."

      Can you please describe with details about this settlement process by which we can segregate this cost.

      If you have any document for Assembly Processing reference Please share with me. This can help me a lot.

      Regards

      Sunil

    1. Create a Inquiry in VA11 --OK

    *2. Create Quaotation in VA21 wrf to Inquiry*--OK

    3. Create a Sales order in VA01, while creating sales order, as soon as we assign the material component in SD line item a pop will come for entering std wbs, std ntw, network profile. once we enter this at bottom we can see that scheduling is carried out. Note: if we define material/std wbs/std ntw in CN08 then pop will not come. Now check for errors and save the sales order, at bottom we can see that project order is created. Note: Project number is same as sales order no:---OK

    4. in Billing plan tab at item level we can see the milestones for new project.--In sales order i don't see any milestone or any type of setting. can you please tell me about this we are not able to execute milestone billing in our case.

    Ans to Query: For Milestone billing to work you need to do the following settings in SAPSD

    1. Create Billing Plan in SD and assign the Billing Plan to Sales Document type you are using. Path: IMGSDBillingBilling Plan

    2. In the above node , do settings for Define Billing Plan Types, Define And Assign Date Categories, Maintain Date Proposals For Billing Plan Types, Assign Billing Plan Types To Sales Document Types, Assign Billing Plan Types To Item Categories.

    By doing above settings you will get an additional tab u201CBilling Planu201D in Sales order where you can get the milestones generated for new project. For exiting project you can copy milestones to SD from project.

    If you want Billing Plan at sales document item level, assign the billing plan type in Item category.

    5. In Sales order we can see that billing lock is set against the milestones.---Not Found

    Ans to Query: By doing the above settings as in slno 4, you can see the billing block against the milestone*6.Now open the project in Cj20n and go to network we can see sales order no with line item no.*---OK

    7. Now verify the mile stones in the project.--Adding milestone but no effect in billing

    *Ans to Query : you can see that milestone no in Sales order and Project will be same. Note: Subject to in your standard network you should have milestones, so that we you create a sales order new milestones will get generated wrt to milestones in Std network. So when project is created you can see mile stones are also created.*8 .check the requirement list in MD04 against the Finished product we can see that requirement is generated againt project wrt to sales order.---No requirement is displayed .

    To generate the requirements. Check the settings in requirement class.

    9. Run MRP in MDBT/MD02/MD01, based on procurement type in MM , PR's and Pld order will generated. Note: ALL PR's and PLD Orders are account assigned to WBS.---When we execute this MRP this is not picking requirement from project. BOM created by CS01. if we assign material to activity than this MRP is picking requirement from project.

    10. Now do Pr >PO >GR>(ALL all accounted against project.--OK

    11. Convert Pld order to Production order > release the order > Goods issues against production order.--OK

    12. Confirm the Procution order wrt routing operation one by one in CO11N.--OK but we want sageregated cost for material cost and process cost to different WBS as we have material WBS and Process WBS.

    Ans to Query: This is not possible because in Assembly order processing single account assignment is only possible for the finished products, and for that finished product routing is also account assigned to the WBS assigned to Production order. So operation cost comes and sits in same WBS. If at all you want to track separately you can transfer the actual cost for process to process WBS in tcode:KB11N

    Using KB11N tcode we can manual transfer cost from one WBS to another WBS.13. in cost element reports at projects we can see the cost breakup for all production activities as well as for material.--you mean CJI3 report

    *Ans to query: Yes you can see in CJI3 report or in SALR_870135452 report also_*14. settle the production order.----where to settle this production order? and how?

    *Ans to Query: For assembly processing account assignment is u201CQu201D so automatically in production order we can see the settlement rule is set against the WBS. So the cost from production order is settled to WBS and subsequently from project to the respective receiver as per settlement rule in project.*

    15. conform all activities in Project.----OK CN25 or CJ20N

    In any of the above tcodes

    16. Do billing in SD as when when mile stone reaches to post actual revenues.----OK

    17. run RA in KKA2 and save the RA results--OK

    18. Run settlement in CJ88 ---Not using any settlement

    19. set the status of Project as Teco and Clsd.---OK

    Please let me know if you need more clarifications
