    Hi,

    A material can be assigned to an activity as a material component and an activity can be assigned to a WBS Element. That is there general flow.

    Orders like purchase orders, sales orders etc can be assigned to WBS Elements.

    Hi,

    No.

    2. Can we assign a WBS to material ?

    No

    You can neither assign a material to a WBS nor assign a WBS to a material. You can assign material only to an activity in the project structure. However you can account assign the WBS to a purchase order or a sales order.

    HI,

    Please explain what did you mean by assign?

    Is it attaching material componnets to WBS or tranfere materials to WBS.

    Material tranfering to WBS(project stocks ) is possible via transferpostings movements like 415

    hope this would help.

    You can assign materials to a WBS by using easy cost planning.

    I don t get the point of assigning a wbs to a material, i don t think you can.
