Use Planned Services from a Blanket PO through a Work Order

When creating a PR against a Blanket PO in a Work Order, we would like the costs to come from the planned costs of the PO not the unplanned costs. Even when adopting services in the Work Order from the PO, the costs still come off the Unplanned portion of the PO.

The PR in this case gets converted to an SES since it's against a Blanket PO.

How can we force the costs to come off the planned costs portion of the Blanket PO and not the unplanned costs?

    How are you processing this?

    Here is our scenario:

    Framework order with one service@$77 per hour, plus $1000 limit for unplanned services.

    Work ORder created with Control Key PM03 (External Services) and with reference to the Framework Order. I do Service SElection, specify the FO and item, and select the service. It comes through at $77 per hour.

    Save and Release, and PR is generated. Release that too.

    Then I create my Service Entry sheet with reference to the PO and the PR.

    Save and release. My actual costs have been reflected in the Work Order, at the planned service value- $77.

    Try these steps to see if it works for you. We have no custom development, all standard functionality.

    • Susan,

      I remember now that we had that issue too, an it happened when entering two or more lines of services. SAP cannot seem to be able to make the match by item or line number and it goes looking for limits in the PO.

      I don't think we were able to fix that for services without numbers. Our work around was to use limits only on the framework order. If these are services that happen frequently, then it might be good to give them numbers. Otherwise, go with the limits only.

      Hope this helps.

    Thank you. Looks like that is the solution -- having to use Service Masters/Service Number in the WO planning.

    Much thanks!
