Problem regarding SAP Project System & Material Management

Hello Experts,

please check our process as below:

Order confirms than sales order and project will create

material of BOM is assigned to any activity in project so these material (RM) will be procured and consumed

assign activity for all work done on material to produce FG or SFG.

confirm activity whenever any work done like fabrication done so confirm and its cost comes to WBS.

than we have to subcontracting process so dispach SFG from this and receive after activity done by third party.

than more work is done and confirm these activity. than after all work done we get FG in stock. than delivery from project.

We are facing issue in above business process of our client as below:

1. process of subcontracting using project system as we are not using production planning. how we get any SFG for subcontracting process.

2. if we confirm all activities and consume all Raw Materials than how we will get finished good in our project stock for delivery.

3. after delivery from project how sales order affects with regards to completeness of this sales document.

Please help for this.

Note: Remember we are not using PP cos customer require detailed report of these process and capacity planning etc.

Thanks

Sunil

    Dear Experts,

    Thanks for your replies 😊

    I have got the solution for this issue my self.

    Solution is: we have to assign same FG material with +ve Quantity to same or other activity so this will consume and available for delivery via CNS0.

    thanks

    • Dear Marcio,

      We can assume standard price of FG material as 1. determination of real price of FG material depends on Costing via Controlling Module. CO Consultant will maintain if you want material costing or WBS costing etc.

      Stock we are using is valuated.

      thanks

    Hi,

    Regarding 3rd question , if your billing is milestone then that can be assigned at project and copied to Sales Order. So delivery of goods from project CNS0 is not related to billing. Both are independent cycles.

    • Hi Keshav,

      Thanks for your reply.

      we are not using milestone, we use only down payment and than final billing, but when we deliver from project CNS0 so project stock will decrease and than PGI via VL01N so this will not affect on sales order so how can we bill without delivery from sales order. sales order doesnot show any document flow for this delivery.

      please help..

      Thanks

    please maintain SFG and FG materials with negative quantity in the network for goods receipt. SFG should be also planned with positive quantity for consumption to FG.

    for further details please refer sap help on material planning in projects.

    • Dear Experts,

      Please check below steps of my scenario which we are executing:

      1 After project creation we have to assign Assembly Item (FG) with -ve quantity so that we can GR after confirmation of activity.

      2 BOM transfer via CN33 to get all RM with +ve quantity.

      3 than we have to confirm this activity and do GR/GI for this. So RM will be consumed and FG will do GR in Project Stock.

      Now my problem is that we have FG in Project Stock and trying to create delivery via CNS0

      this is giving this below message

      No data was selected with the selection criteria entered

      Message no. OK021

      Diagnosis

      No entries were found which match the selection criteria you entered.

      Procedure

      Check whether the values you entered are valid.

      while in MBBS this is showing Stock against project.

      Please guide us for further error check and Process.

      Thanks

    Hi,

    If u are not using milestone billing and not delivery related billing then u r only using 2 milestones as DP and Final Invoice ?

    If this is the case then assign milestone to CJ20N , copy them in sales order.

    Do delivery from project CNSO and create delivery note after PGI.

    Regards

    Hi,

    CNS0 will show you those materials which are assigned to your project. If you have assigned FG as material for your project then this error will not come.

    You have also asked that if you want to raise invoice after delivery of material :

    You need to assign milestone to your project saying Invoice after delivery. So as soon as you do PGI for project stock then you need to confirm this activity from CJ20N. This will remove billing block from sales order so you can raise invoice.

    There is also some setting by which only project stock can be seen in CNS0. If requirement , will tell you that setting too.

    With Regards

    Keshav

    • Hi Sunil,

      Assume this is my project structure & attached components. I will procure this components externally. After GRN, This components will be issued to network with 581 Q movement type.

      Now we need to assemble this raw material to produce our FG, As these SFG are in our project stock. What we need to do for assembly process through PS.

      Also throw some light over benefit of using PS-BOM interface ( CN33 ) for attaching material components.

      Project

      WBS

      Network

      Activity A

      Gears

      Qty - 1

      Activity B

      Blades

      Qty - 2

      Activity C

      Stand

      Qty - 1

      Activity D

      Connectors

      Qty - 1

      Regards
