Cost settlement of suborder to Superior Order when Cost at Operation Level is activated

I want to settle the cost of suborders to the Superior order.

But I am getting the error "Message no. ERP_CO_OLC_E061", I am using the same order type for both Superior and Sub Orders. and Config "Cost at Operation Level" is activated for this order type.

Config Path:

Master Data in Plant Maintenance and Customer Service>Maintenance and Service Orders>Functions and Settings for Order Types>Costs at Operation Level>Define Cost Settings

Is there a way to settle cost to superior Order while keeping the config for "Cost at Operation Level"?


Business Scenario:

Currently WO has multiple operations, e.g. 2 operations.

Operation 0010 - o be performed by contractor 1 (Work Centre=CONTR1)
Operation 0020 - o be performed by contractor 2 (Work Centre=CONTR2)

Contractors has access to the WO, and can see the other contractor's operation and their price information.

Therefore business is trying to have sub orders (instead of multiple operations) for each contractor, and total cost for each operation to be settle to the superior order, which will capture the total cost of the work.

But above mentioned config is coming in the way for this setup and not allowing to settle to superior order.

Aqva cool,

Do you need OLC activated?

If not, then retest with the standard header costing settings.

Hi,

Do you mean operation as CO account assignment object? So settling an operation from child order to the operation of the superior order? It would be a very strange setup, curious to find out a business case.

Normally in such scenario there is no need to settle to the parent order at all, as the info system will total the cost from child orders anyway.

Regards,

1. I still do not see any need for settlement, because it is totaled up anyway by means of the hierarchy.

2. While SAP has opened up a new CO object in a way like PM order Operation (similar to NWA Activity), but it is limited to direct cost assignments. Neither Activity element or PM order operation are available in cycles or as settlement receivers.

3. If you really need to settle (refer to point 1) you need a superior order to have a different order type.
