Purchasing Enhancement using FM

Former Member
0 Kudos

Background story:

We have SAP BP Baseling running in our company.

We are trying to control purchasing in our company using Funds Management (i.e. any PR/PO that contains an item that belongs to a cost element/GL account that has exceeded the budget will issue a warning and be blocked till the budget is upgraded).

We've done the basic configuration for PSM-FM (creating FM area, assigning FM etc. according to Config guide 951-FM basic settings).

We want to convert our CO Plan (Cost Centers: Actual/Plan/Variance found with transaction S_ALR_87013611) to a budget.


What should our commitment item heirarchy look like?

How do I view the commitment item heirarchy after creating it?

Do we need to create funds/fund centers?

How do I convert our CO plan to a budget?

How do I assign the commitment items to our cost elements (GL accounts)?

Is there any documentation that'll help apart from SAP library?

a) You can define the hierarchy only after due analysis of all your functional requirements for budget management


c) fund centre is mandatory object when you implement FM; fund is optional.


e) via master data of G/L (FS00) or via FMDERIVE

f) SDN
