Hi

Why is the service category required?

If we select a service category the system does not prpose any valuation class. Is it more for analysis purpose?

If you have assigned the valuation class in OMSK than you will see the valuation class in drop down list in service master but it will not defult automatically.

Hi

Service Category

Key used to differentiate between services according to their usage.

The service category defines certain attributes of the service and has a control function.

The following service categories exist:

Master records describing internal services

Master records describing services to be procured externally

Master records describing services performed for third parties.

Standard settings

The following service categories are available in the standard system:

ALL Complete service

GRND Basic services

SERV Services, Purchasing

The service category is the most important criterion for structuring service master records. It provides a default value for the valuation classes. Service master records can be assigned to number ranges on the basis of the service category.

To the service category we assign the Account category reference to whcih the Valuation classes are assigned.

Thanks & Regards

But in the standard there are lot of service categories like transportation, building mainatenance etc.

What is the use of these categories?

Hi

Usage of service category is for diversifying the Service masters. The service category is like a material type only , but does not carry that much importance & no control functions available for service category.

You can assign different number ranges to the Service master using service category.

transportation, building mainatenance these are custom defined for your Internal usage.

You can use report AC06 for list of services using service category

Thanks & Regards
