It is often a business requirement from SAP PM point of view to perform the month end and year end closing activities. Some are the below points I would like to share with you to benefit all our community

Month end activities:

  1. The MM posting period for the current month is closed and the subsequent period is opened
  2. The FI & CO posting period for the current month is closed and the subsequent period is opened
  3. The maintenance overhead cost (if any) for the maintenance orders for the current month posting is calculated and posted against individual orders
  4. The maintenance orders cost is settled to the relevant settlement cost center maintained in the orders
  5. In some companies (the man power and over head costs) are reversed and reposted based on the business requirement.
