Scope of work SC/PO in SRM

Hi,

The requirement is that you have a server reapir needed and you are not sure about the amount of labor and also amount for any spares?

So I need to create a SC and release against a Contract, for example I have a contract with IBM for their servers with both Service lines and Spares lines.

I could think of creating a limit item SC, say for $1000 and released against this contract with IBM. And it created a PO in ECC with Item Category D

Then, the work is performed and I tried to create a confirmation in SRM with line one with Serice and Labor for $300 and line two with spare parts of $700.

But I couldn't confirm against any material line as the PO is purely Service.

So, my question in general is, I am pretty sure many big companies might have faced this scenario in procurement of unknown amount of goods and services on one PO/SC.

What is the easier/other option to do this.

I know that we can't create two limit item PO's and more over, one line should be for materials.

Please share your input on this.

Thanks,

CS

Hi Chinna,

I have not extensively worked with services but my suggestions

Assumed that you created a Limit SC with the option of confirmation.

Thats why you have refered a r/3 Contract in limit sc of contract TAB.

Hope that you have created a PO in R/3 for the services.

so can you create a service entry sheet in r/3 rather than SRM . it is a workaround

Hi Muthu,

Thanks for the response, I respect your work in sdn, you almost have solutions for most of the questions, anyways, I for got to mention that we are using ECS. The copy of PO created in ECC is services PO, the contract/PO is all in SRM.

My challenge is to crate scope of unknown labor and materials in one SC/PO.

Thanks,

CS

Hi CS,

plz refer these ..following notes and links. it is a limitations of limit PO.

Note 1302125 - Not able to add two or more limit items in purchase order

Note 1054487 - Multiple limit items allowed in purchase order

Note 1243836 - Manual entry of invalid contract allowed in contract limit

Note 1301483 - PO with two or more limit items goes to Error in Process

coming to your point unknown /always it is necessary to mention a price in PO .it is a rule.it can not be flexible.
