Does anyone have any documentation on Resource Related Billing? I need to understand what business scenarios are applicable and how to configure it.
At my client, I have two situations, both involving a work order. In the first situation, the work is being done for a 3rd Party Customer and therefore, all work captured in the work order needs to be billed to the 3rd Party.
The second situation involves intercompany billing. Company A provides labor and material to a Company B work order. Company A needs to invoice Company A for the labor and material provided. The billing invoice needs to be detailed and include the appropriate mark-ups and taxes. Additionally, the work order could be open for multiple periods. Therefore, we need to be able to do periodic billing.
For both situations, I believe Resource Related Billing will work. Please advise if you think something else should be considered too.
The price for customer-specific services are not always defined in a contract as fixed prices, nor can they always be determined using standard pricing. This is the case if, for example, no empirical values exist for specific services, and therefore the services cannot be calculated adequately before conclusion of a contract. Typical examples of this are:
External plant maintenance in the service company
Specific services such as consulting
You carry out resource-related billing for these orders. In the billing document, single material, internal activities, and costs are assigned to the customer afterwards. The basis for creating a billing document is the billing request.
Since static billing is not longer available, you must make a conversion, if necessary. For more information, see the Implementation Guide for Project System under Revenues and Earnings ® Integration with SD Documents ® Creating Quotations and Project Billing ® Static Processing (Process Before Release 4.5).
The system determines prices for later billing requests based on the quantity and the material by using the pricing procedure. You can process a billing request in either one of the following views:
Sales price view
For more information, see Pricing.
You can carry out the new resource-related billing for the following objects:
Item(s) of a sales document (for example, standard order) with controlling object (this means that costs and revenues are updated in the sales document)
Item(s) of a sales document with relation to a work breakdown structure element from a customer project
Item(s) of a sales document with relation to a production order or internal order
A non-revenue bearing service order with relation to an a sales document item
Revenue bearing service orders
You use resource-related billing in Customer Service (CS), Sales and Distribution (SD), and Project System (PS) for processing sales orders and service orders.
