Settlement in cost projects

Hi All,

i plan cost for activites with costcenter 4290 and activity type , i confirm the activities so actual cost is posted to activites. My strucutre consists of 2 level all the cost plan is done at 2nd level and confirmation is also done for the activites of 2nd level wbs elements. the actual cost is at level 1. for settlement i maintain rule for level 1 wbs element in order to settle to cost center 4290. when i execute settleement ie cj88 it is executed without any errors but i am not able to see any details. i am not able to close the project as the cost is still at activity level. could anybody guide me to close the project.

regards,

abhinay.

    Ensure that, you are settling your NWA cost to your level 2 WBSE, which is rolling up to level 1 WBSE.

    As Tushar said, check CJI3 and you'll come to know which cost/commitment is still pending at what level. This should help you to resolve your issue.

    Good luck

    Hi Abhinay,

    Check CJI3 report and see if the total of the cost is ZERO. If the cost is not ZERO, then it means settlement has not executed completely. In such case, through CJI3 , you can see which of the cost is not settled.

    Check CJI5 report and see if there are any open commitments (PR,PO) for specific activity. If yes, then you need to close those PO by setting Deliv.compl. checkbox.

    Please follow link mentioned below which can be helpful.

    • Dear Abhi,

      Network settlement will automatically do settlement to immediate upper WBS than you have to assign settlement rule where you want to settle the cost of that WBS either upper level WBS or directly to cost center.

      thanks

    Hi,

    Your actual costs are sitting at Level 2 WBS element and maintained the settlement rule at Level 1 WBS.

    Where is your NWA costs are settling in this case, hope it is from NWA to WBS level 2.

    If hierarchy structure maintained properly the actual costs at aggregate level 1 would be settled to CTR properly. I guess can you post screen shot how your WBS arrangement was done in PB.

    Regards,

    Sudhakar

    Dear Abhinay,

    Please check whether you maintained settlement profile for network, so that all cost of network would be settle on related WBS. Than Settlement rule for WBS will be receiver as Costcenter so all he cost should be transferred to actual receiver that is Cost Center.

    thanks

    Sunil
