Equipment accounting transactions must be created when you invoice an equipment sale using the project module so they can be picked up in the profitability portal, CAS340.

Therefore, when you sell equipment using the project order module and make the delivery using a customer order, the lot number from the customer order must be transferred to the project invoice line for the final invoicing, so that the analytic accounts can be balanced.

To manage the cost of goods sold (COGS), the costs on the connected customer order are accounted on OI20-951/971.

To manage the warranty fund, the warranty fund line charge on the customer order connected to our project invoice line are accounted on PO20-150/151.

The workflow is used for the following types of invoices:

Outcome

Equipment is sold and invoiced using the project order module, and the delivery is made using the customer order. The lot number from the customer order is transferred to the project line for the final invoicing, so that the analytic accounts for the equipment can be balanced.

Follow these steps

Note: You need to have a project order created.
  1. Select option 22 = 'Str/stop activ' in 'Project. Open' (POS100/B11) to start the activity for shipping via customer orders.

    Set the status of the activity to 20.

  2. Create a customer order in 'Customer Order. Open' (OIS100/OIS101).

    Make sure that the customer order type has status 68 (Not to in-voice) in OIS010/F.

  3. Make sure that a warranty fund is set up correctly so that a line charge is created automatically in OIS101.

    The line charge for the warranty fund is displayed in OIS107.

  4. Connect the customer order to the project by entering the project number and element number in OIS101/F.

    The project order and the customer order are now connected.

  5. In 'Project Invoice. Update Lines' (POS481/B1), select option 11='Connect CO line' to connect the customer order to the project's final invoice line.

    A pop-up screen appears with customer orders that can be selected to invoice via the project.

  6. Select a customer order.

    Warehouse and item number are populated in POS481/E from the customer order. The reference order number in POS481/G is populated from the customer order.

  7. Deliver the customer order.

    In MWS422 the lot number is received. In OIS150 the delivery is ready in status 68 according to the order type setting.

  8. Do a final invoicing of the project in POS480.

    In POS481 the lot number is received from the customer order. In the invoice stream file, the lot number is visible.

  9. Analyze the account entries in CAS300.

    Make sure that the warranty fund and COGS were accounted correctly (PO20-150/151 and OI20-951/971).

  10. Analyze the account entries in POS350.

    Information type 68 (internal charge) is created for the warranty fund.

  11. Analyze the balance of the project in the profitability portal, CAS340.

    Balance figures for the item's lot number are visible.

  12. The same analysis is done in MMS255.

    Balance figures for the item's lot number are visible.
