Distrribution of work over the schedule

hi

my client has a requirement where the work given in the WORK field is distributed over the whole schedule/duration of the activity.rather the work can be split manually over the various time periods within the activity's duration.just like the case when the costs in the general costs activity are distributed as per the distributiuon key.

can anyone suggest if there exists a method via which this can be achieved?

thanks and regards

Hi Spedge

Didn't quite understand your request....maybe just me....

Do you want to see total Work (plan hrs) spread over the whole duration? If so does Distribution Key SAP020 not do what you want? Can you not just add this to the distribution key field on the Basic data tab ofr the Internal Activity?

Or are you looking for the option to manually split hours across months.

i.e. 100 hrs over 3 months

20 hrs month 1
10 hrs month 2
70 hrs month 3

I'm not aware of any method to split hrs manually (i.e as above)

Read, Internal Tab rather than Basic Data Tab in the above

Hi Spedge

Not that I'm aware of. I guess as long as the Unit of measure for Work can be linked to the Duration Unit of Measure then I think you should be OK.

However all the clients I've worked at have used Work with the Unit of Measure of Hours and Normal Duration with Unit of Measure of Days.

Let us know how you get on.

Every day in SAP is a learning day...irrespective of how long you have been using it.

hi steve

just today i observed one thing----wished to share.

i gave the work unit as M3,i.e.cubic metre.and used a standard distribution key and the work got distributed over the activity duration!!

that was a more or less discovery kinda thing on my part.

thanks and regards

Thanks Spedge

I think the bit to focus on will be once the task has started

Do you want the Remaining Work value to be distributed over the remaining duration or original work over original duration

Bear in mind any confirmations that may take place
