Material determination in DIP Profile

Hi everybody,

I have two types of service orders:

- Maintainance service (Order Type A)

- Installation service (Order Type B)

When I create the sales document from the service order (transaction ODP1), I need to assign material 'X' when the order is a 'Maintainance service' and the material 'Y' when the order is 'Installation service'.

How can I configure the DIP Profile if I want to do these difference?

I will appreciatte your help

    Greetings Anali,

    One scenario I can imagine it working is if you had the two Order Types A & B in two distinct number ranges. (t-code OION). Maybe try this line of action:

    In ODP1, create a profile, and under "Characteristics", check "Order" as "Relevant" and "Material Deterrmination"

    Then under "Material determination" create two lines for your materials X and Y. Under each of those, create a set for Order numbers, with the range the same as the corresponding number ranges for A & B.

    If all your Orders are in fact in the same number range, this gets a bit trickier, because you'd have to try to find another characteristic to base the determination on - maybe base it off Work Centre, if you have separate Maintenance & Installation teams?

    The easiest way is to have two different DIP Profiles, one assigned to each order type.

    If you must have the same DIP Profile, then as Jim suggests above, you will need to develop a solution. You could use developments to either create a new DIP Profile Characteristic, or use code to redetermine the material at run-time (no visibility of this option in the DIP Profile).
