Actually I want to plan revenues using sales order. here plan revenues means billing plan for the sales order. Billing milestones are transfered as billing dates. when i confirm activities i get the billing amount which is revenue. Is the process corect? please help me out.

    Hi,

    Yes you can create a sales order when you have firm order customer with price and delivery date.

    you can set up billing wbs element which is having billing milestones and copied over to sales order.

    Thus that becomes your revenue planning on project.

    When you confirm your activities, actual hours are valuated with activity type maintained in that activity and that would be the actual costs on project.

    When you confirm the billing milestone associated with billing milestone which releases the billing block in sales order billing line. then when invoiced to customer that triggers the revenue generation for the project.

    Regards,

    Sudhakar

      Hi Abhinay,

      Check configuration for DIP profile that you are using and see if Material determination indicator is set for the " Cost element" characterstic.Cost element is made availalble as a characteristic for material determination using sets. Only if this indicator is set you can enter a set for the characteristic in the table "Material determination"

      As suggested earlier, please go through SAP note 301117 for Enhanced documentation for DIP.

      Also, I would suggest you to start new thread for any new questions that you may come up as this question is already marked as answered.

      Regards

      Tushar

    thanks i will find out. to make sure,

    1) MY revenue is 200000( i got it fromcost planning + profit) which i give in condition tab of sales order.

    2) IN CN41 befor deleting billing plan some value is displayed, is this plan revenue(200000). if so why we have to delete it and plan on milestone billing dates

    3) once activities are confirmed based on milestone billing is done.

    if i give SD consultant as wbs and its work hour as activity and confirm them , the milestone of billing revenue for respective SD consultant should be done .

    where exactly i can seen actual revenue of that consultant(WBS).

    am i following right process. please help me out.

    thanks,

    abhinay.
