    Hi Prasad

    As you are procuring spares once in 3 years, and utilised when and when required so in that case you have to procure the material to plant stock, transfer it to project stock during consumption. create sales order with respect to project ,in this way you can manage inventory and capitalize

    please check and revert back

      Dear Prasad,

      I hope we can follow two procedures:

      1. We can procure the material under plant stock , and later it can be transfered to project at the time of project consumption.

      2. Craete one Common Project and WBS , ( SPARES) , Try to procure all the Common materials which are related to common for all project , And this project will be carry forward by every year .

    if i right understood your problem then choose procurement type

    WE = Reservation plant stock

    while adding material in component overview wherein priority for plant is 1 means plant stock.

    2nd way create manual indent in ME51n with the reference of wbs for that you have to choose account assignement category as Q.

    how to capitalize = you have to create settlement profile wherein define valide reciever and settlement rule for the same.

    means lower wbs would be settle it's supperior wbs and in last depend on project type means if invesment type project then final receiver would be asset. and if customer project then PSG if copa is available or CC and more.

    Hi Prasad,

    Your requirement here can be catered with Valuated Project Stock function in PS.

    First, make sure that your project is enable with "Valuated Stock" indicator in the Project Profile.

    Then, proceed with the creation of material component PR in CJ20N, use item category L, and then you will get the option to trigger PR & Reservation.

    The PR process will continue until Goods Receipt, where the costs will be posted to Inventory (Project Stock). So, your project will not bear any costs at this point.

    Until the time you want to utilize the spares, you can then do Goods Issue for the Reservation, and then costs will be posted to your project. Then, you can later settle and capitalize the costs.

    Hope this helps.
