Dear Expert,

I have a query like we have different maintenance work center for electrical & mechanical and we have maintained mechanical MWC in equipment, now when order & notification will get generated it will copy mechanical work center and abviously the mechanical cost center against the same.

But electrical dptt. wants to issue something and cost incured should move to electrical cost center then if we select the equipment in the order ,, it will copy mechanical work center in the order, and cost will move to mechanical cost center, plz guide wat to do?

thanks

hi

system will only pick the workcenter and cost center maintained in the master record for reference object,in your case dont maintain any details in the master record then make the settlement rule mandatory for release ,so that user has to specify the correct workcenter and cost center

Hi Deepak

You can also change the work center " Mechanical" to "electrical" in the Operation tab.So that you can issue the same.

The equipment master has only one main work center can be assigned.So we need to change based on activity requirements.

Thanks

Dear

In this thread u need to understand the cost centers functionality clearly.

As we mentioned there will be two cost centers

1. Location cost centers @ Acct asgt

This one is the settlement receiver the mtc order cost will go here. The all credits it means each time the expenditues amount will add against the receiver.they are service reqd location.

2. Resp Cost center@ Resp Tab

Settlement sender, Profit center is resp cost center. It comes thro Mtc work center .

The exp amount will deducted 4m thier fund center against the cost center . But if fund mgt is activated only.All amount profit occurs here at profit center .

u not reqd to worry abt the resp cost center , while settlment give as defualt then automaticaaly takes as location cost center .

Do this way to bettr cost center assignment at settlement receiver

1. in configuration level settlement is reqd while order release itself.

2. Add the user status as mentioned earlier

settlement cost center, resp cost center

3. put manadatory as location cost center thro field selection

4. If you want to look resp cost center simply you can do thro

Order level field selection as mandatory field for Mtc work center

I think all answers explaining very well . pls close this thread if you r satisfied .

Hello Deepak,

What is the process for cost flow configured in the system?

Which is the sender & reciever cost center for the order..?

I guess the mechanical & electrical are maintenance cost center..The settlement reciever should be Production cost center where the equipment is installed..

Pl check ..

Hi,

you have to check this with finance guy as what is the process of cost settlement..As thanna said make the configuration as settlement rule mandatory during order release & make Cost center field mandatory in equpment master..System will automatically determine the settlement reciever for the order during release..

Regarding maintaining same cost center for Maintenance & Production dept, system allows you to do that & this scenario is very much possible in small industries..But in this case the labor cost will be credited to Maintenance cost center when the labor time is signed against order..& the same cost center will be debited for the same amount after order settlement..Ofcourse the material cost will come from Inventory account to Maintenance cost center..

Hope this explains better..

Dear

Ur clarification is explained in last post. If u need to control fully add the user status at order types as ' Settlemnt Cost center '. then u protect here business transactions .

I thing u r clear now
