Hi SAP experts
I want to ask a question for Project Process in SAP.
we are a typical ETO enterprise, and we implement the PS as well as regular SD module to process billing to customer. but AS-IS situation is we collect all the project-related costs(material, expense) in PS and billing to customer once the equipment is shipped and received by customer. the current setting is for the finished product, it is explored into various semi-finished goods and release corresponding production orders, and they are posted into project.
the ps billing is NOT related to finishend product in stock and delivered in SAP system.
besides equipment selling, we have a small part revenue coming from selling parts to subsidary company. now, we want our PS solution deployed be more flexible. Specifically, we want the PS billing for parts selling are restrictly on goods issued. if there is no goods issue on the project, the billing document can't be issued to customer.
could you please guild me how to implement this in SAP?
To use standard SAP in this scenario you would add extra items to the Sales Order for the additional parts. These items would be account assigned to the project, but you would process Deliveries for these items from the Sales Order not the project. This is a traditional SD process. With the account assignment the costs and revenues from the sales order items will post to the project for reporting.
For an ETO scenario the main Sales Order item is a "dummy" material for billing only (such as PS milestone based billing plan) and material deliveries are created from the project (CNS0).
