Service order and WBS Element

Hello Experts,

I have a question regarding WIP service order costs. Can we post the costs of a WIP service order to a WBS element? IF so where do we link the service order and project/WBS Element? How do we post the costs to WBS elements?

Appreciate your help and time in this regard.....

Thanks,

Harish R

WIP is not the cost it is a balance sheet item, if you manage WIP at period end, means it returns to the same object next period for service/product delivery. Service order can be attached to the WBS, so all costs are also reflected in PS info system.

My problem scenario is like this.

We have two plants A and B of the same Co.Cd. We are physically closing plant A and moving everything into B. Now the open service order costs from plant A have to be moved to plant B. How do we do this?

Do we have to create a new service order/WBS element for all old open service order/wbs element?

Also where do we connect the service order and wbs element?

Appreciate your help and time.

Thanks,

Order can be attached to WBS by means of its master data. In the order master there is the WBS field for assignment.

If plant B will be physically shut down, that means all respective objects (assigned to that plant) should be closed.

The question now is what will happen with WIP of plant B? Will it be transformed to the product at plant B before closing, or should be transferred to plant A as WIP and finalized at plant A.
