change of purchase order versus commitments

I try to find a way to keep track of changes in a purchaseorder other then changing the amount.

it happens quite a lot that during a job the job changes. (we use purchaseorders for architects and construction builders)

so when we have created a purchaseorder in ME21N for 10.000 EUR 10.000 UNITS

and we get a first invoice of 2500 euro

we set the invoice in for 2500 EUR 2500 UNITS

the commitment shows that 7500 still has to be paid.

when during the job something happens and the amount is raised after mutual agreement to 12500

then the commitment shows 10.000 which is correct.

only thing I try to figure out now if there are other ways to do the same thing which are perhaps more handy or if standard SAP has also other options.

1 way is to make a new purchaseorder for extra work or an additional item line.

this can work for extra work but for less work the commitment doesn't change when I make it a returnposition ? why doesn't a returnposition influence the commitments ?

further on the projectmanagers try to keep on track about the extra work or less work added to a purchaseorder. ofcourse this is visible in the documentlogging but perhaps there is also an alternative that it can also be reported in overall reports with multiple purchaseorders ?

kind regards
