Work in process / Service orders

Hi everybody,

Reading the concepts of the use of WIP, is mentioned that it can be applied also in services:


I have been working with PM/CS, and the cycle ends with the billing of the sales document that is generated from the service order, but i have problems applying the settelment rule, because i only use one G/L account and Financial area teold me that i must be work with 2 G/L accounts, one for the service in process and the other when the service finishes.

By the other hand, also they mentioned that i have to determine the sales cost from the settlement of the general order.

Can somebody help me?

    Hi, Anali

    WIP menas as you know Work in Progress, used to post the cost before the Cost Obect is closed. There is a tool in SAP to analyze, configure, calculate and post these costs to FI if desired....

    The implementation is complicated, so I?d suggest to ask an expert or attend the standard training course Cost Object Controlling.

    Kind regards
