Create Project Budget or Financial Budget from a Maintenance Agreement Quote

This document explains how to update a project budget (POS100/POS110) or a financial budget (BUS100/BUS101) based on information from a maintenance agreement quote. Use this process when a project or financial budget should be updated with cost and revenue based on the details of a Maintenance Agreement, such as; Equipment, Maintenance program, Operation plan and so on.

The project or financial budget is created using the MCO invoicing function (COS180) but in this scenario, a project or financial budget is created instead of a real MCO invoice. Instead of creating real finance accountings, records will be created in 'Project budget from MCO. Display' (COS475). The records in (COS475) contains information that should have been used if it had been a real invoice, such as accounting event, accounting string including the amounts for cost and revenue. From here, project budget or financial budget updates can be created. The budget updates will be created in the period in which the work request should have been performed.
