Purchase Req to WBS Element

Post by Quec » Fri Jun 29, 2007 12:35 pm

Hello all,

it´s possible to set a material component in a WBS structure, where i can have a Purchase Requistion created linked to the WBS Element and not to the network or activity?


thanks for helping...

Yes its possible.
By me51n

You need to put the item categorie as Network there.Then it will be mandatory to put Account Assignment i.e WBS in the Item details.

Hi,

You can create a PR manually and assign a material to the required WBS.

While creating the PR by ME51N use the Account assignment "Q" then you can enter the WBS.

Tnx.

if in me51n u give the a/c assignment category as Network(N) then the mandatory assignement is network activity and not wbs.if u give the a/c assignment as P then WBS is the mandatory assignment.
the component assignmetn in case of ME51n to WBS is not a direct assignnment as in case of Network Activity assignment.

Hi,

In ME51N and ME21N account assignment "P" is using for services to assign to a WBS where as "Q" is using for materials to assign to a WBS.

Tnx.

hi kaddooty,

the services assignment is dependent on the item category and that is taken as "D" and not on a/c assignment.this is to say if u take N and D combination u create a service as assigned to an activity and if u replace this N with P u create the assignement w.tr.t WBS.

Spedge is correct

Use P without the D

D is for a service

Hello all, thanks for the answers..

I know that in me51n and me21n i can create manually with account assignment "P", but what i want is to when i add the material into the WBS, the system creates automatically a PReq with that account assignment "P" only... is this possible???

if u imageine that u can assign a material to a wbs in the project builder as u do for an activity that leads to a Preq/res creation,then that functionality does not hold true for a wbs.thats y the assignment of material to a wbs is always indirect thru other transactions of PR/PO creation.

Hi,

If you use account assignment as 'Q' in the PR / PO then after MIGO it will be displayed as Special stock until and unless you consume it. However, if you use the account assignment "P" the material will be procured against the WBS element and as soon as MIGO will be done, it will automatically get consumed against the used WBS and no inventory would appear.

Tnx.
