Distribute the released budget of parent WBS to its child WBS

Dear Experts,

We have a parent WBS A and it have 5 child WBS. And in our current scenario we have assigned & released the budget at parent level directly(as per top-down planning approach).

But Now our business requirement is to distribute theĀ  budget of parent WBS to its child(i.e. bottom up approach) as it will be easy to monitor the budget. I have distributed the budget of parent WBS to its child using CJ30.

But at the time of releasing using CJ32 it gave me the error "Over all release is less than distributed release"

So is there any way for distributing the released budget to child level after some procurement. Please suggest if it can be possible.

Note: There is also some assigned budget in CJ32.

Regards

Shishir

    Dear Srivastva,

    Please check whether you have procurement at top level WBS if yes than this will not allow you to reduce budget less than procurement. otherwise you can change the budget according to you.

    thanks

    • Dear Shishir,

      in this case budget will be as below:

      L1-12000

      L2-3000

      L2-4000

      so where is the issue of budget exceed. 5000 of L1 is already used and rest you will able to use at lower level. otherwise you have to shift the procurement to lower level.

      thanks

    Avoid the use of Total Up. Do manual calculation.

    • Dear Shishir,

      if you have created PR using ME51N so only you have to do is change account assignment to next level WBS.

      If you have assigned material component to WBS than drag and drop to any other location or other WBS.

      Note: this is possible only when you are drag n drop within same Network. Not allow in other network.

      Please check.

      thanks

    Hi Srivastava,

    In case if you have raised indents on higher level then try to move the assigned networks to child WBS. Try this in quality server first.

    Along this I just want to inform you that budgeting on lower level will lead to better control but less flexibility. So analyze pros & cons before moving. Besides this It is not advisable to change budgeting level after transaction.

    Hi,

    Whenever you use total up, error message will occur during saving. You have to keep this in mind throughout the life cycle of project. If you can release 100% then there is no issue.
