Cost center in the Reservation created in MO

Former Member

Dear PM Expert and Gurus,

Currently the Notification created with the cost center 100 and the equipment used assigned under cost center 100. A material is created in MO and generated a reservation. However the cost center field in the reservation is empty.

Question is can the cost center being copied to the reservation's cost center field?

On the other hand, when posted goods issue for the reservation, why the profit center is not following the cost center as assigned.

Thank you

Regards

Hi Leonard ,

When we reserve anything from MO then in reservation the Account Assignment category will be your MO so the cost first flows to MO then from MO you can settle it to anything , it may be your cost ctr . Its a standard functionality and procedure.

Hi SAP PM,

Since the MO cost center will be adopted to the Reservation, and the reservation will have the movement type 261.

While doing goods issue for the reservation and material document created, it is found out that the profit center in the material document is not the profit center that assign to the MO and reservation cost center.

It is understood that only one profit center can be assigned to the cost center and by right the profit center will be used accordingly. But different profit center is being used while doing posting.

Kindly advise whether you ahve any idea about this issue.

Thank you

Hello Loonard,

When material document is created,the profit center in the material document will come from the responsible cost center of the MO(cost center in the additional data tab of MO).

When you settle the order,cost will flow from the responsible cost center (cost center in the additional data tab of MO) to the cost center assigned to the MO(cost center in the location tab of MO).

So for material document,cost center and profit center will be always from responsible cost center of MO not the assigned cost center.

Hi Leonard ,

Prft Ctr in reservation comes from material master not from the order that is why they are different .Final cost of the order will be settled to the receiver which you will specify in order's settlement rule .

Dear SAP PM,

The problem now is there isn't any profit center being maintained in the material master and if that is the case profit center suppose to be derive from the cost center in the MO,

However, it is not and I am not sure where is the profit center coming from.

Hope your to get your advise.

Thank you

Hi Leonard Tan,

the same doubt raised for me also...

http://scn.sap.com/thread/3194193

the main thing we have to notice is Movement type...

201 - Consumption for cost center

261 - Consumption for order

So if we create reservation thru order, movement type will be 261.It will generate reservation w.r.t. order only.so cost center wont come there.

If we create direct manual reservation, movement type will be 201.It will generate reservation w.r.t. cost center only.so cost center is mandatory field here.

Dear Mohan,

It is understand that the movement type 261 would not prompt any cost center but profit center. But we are not allowed to maintain the profit center during goods issue and the system will automatically assign the profit center.

My question now is, since there is no profit center being maintained in the material master for the particular material and the profit center that generated by the system is not the profit center that assigned to the cost center in the MO. From where the system determine the profit center?

Thank you

Hi Leonard,

If you see material document for goods issue you will find 2 profit center in acounting or profit center document.

Profit center which gets debited comes from the responsible cost center of the MO (cost center in the additional data tab of MO).

Profit center which gets credited comes from the material master "plant data/str 2" tab or "sales:general/plant" tab.

You can check with respect to the posting keys mentioned in acounting documents also.

Posting keys can be seen in TCode OB41.

If you are not able to find profit center in material master then please revert.

Deepak
