Service cost

Hi,

I have a scenario to maintain the service charge or labor charge manually at time of creating the service order. In standard we are doing this by maintaining activity type and giving predefined value for that and system will be calculated based on the hour preformed.here in order to capturing the travelling cost and other miscellaneous expenses we need to maintain the value manually. Please suggest me a solution for this.

With Regards

Aswin Nair

    Hi Aswin,

    I tried your requirement, but I am able to give feedback as follows

    Actaully in service order "IW31" as the price of service material is controlled both in "MM" and also through activity type in KP26, I tried putting manually seperate cost at header tab in service order, without the above conditions. still its not coming. you try once, but as we have to use RRB with costing it takes by default the cost price.

    I suggest for manual entry of charges you can try throgh Sales order for the service item and for billing maintain copy controls between sa;;es doc. and billing doc. type.

    If you come across a better solution please let me know.

    Hi ,

    Kindly use service entry sheet to capture the cost manualy.or else you can use text in the componenet tab to capture the cost manually.

    the only configuration you require to do is valuation categories-cost element.

      In the operation tab of order in the description enter the text of cost nad press enter you should get a pop -up of PR in that you can mention the cost .the cost will start appearing in your order when in the config part you have mentioned the value categories and cost element assigned to it.

      hope this works out for u.

    Dear Aswin

    You can try through standard like this- If you have got a External service PO for this service cost, you can make the operation as external service by changing the control key to pm03. then change the reservation to never so that it doesnt trigger a PR. Assign a service to this operation from the drop down service master or you can enter text service also. manually maintain the price of the service. By this you will get the plan cost of the order. Then against this order you can do the service entry(ML81n) for a PO which is there for that service. Note that account assignment category of that PO should be F. Try & see if your requirement fulfilled

      Hi SHAKTI BEHERA,

      I tried this could you explain the concept behind this actually we are not procuring services only instead of fixed activity i want to enter it manually and how could be the business scenario if i am selecting it as external services the PR is triggering if we have not chosen never under the component tab. how the business flow in both cases. as i know there will not be any conformation and how do we do the billing for the material and services. what is the relevance of service sheet against PR.

      With Regards

    Hi,

    As per your requirements there is no any field is available, where you can enter costs manually. moreover, If you will go for that, then you will have to go for the enhancements. so it is better to go for additional configurations for the activity type to capture those costs as well.

    for the travelling costs, you can define to calculate as per distance travelled and fuel prices and for misc. you can go for enhancement for extra field in order header. both the items should be defined in the activity type.

    regards,

    Lucky.

    Hi,

    Can any one suggest me any enhancement that i can try for doing this .in my case i need to use this manual service cost entry in service order itself so not able to do this through sales process and its too difficult to maintain different activity type for each of them.

    With Regards

    Hi,

    I think you can directly post travelling cost and other miscellaneous expenses manually from FI against your service order(tcode FB01). Please check with FI team on posting the costs to to your order.

    If you want the cost to be displayed as Travelling & miscellaneous costs, then you require to do configuration for valuation category and cost element.

    Regards,

    Basavaraj.
