HCM postings to ETM
I'm leading a project where ETM is going to be implemented, we have a scenario where we want to record the cost of the equipment operator to ETM and our consultant said that is not possible and wants to post the operator costs into a WBS.
I'm sure that the cost can be posted to the ETM order which is a PM order, that way ETM will have the cost and the income.
The operator cost will come via an interface of a HCM legacy system and in the future they are going to implement SAP HCM.
Can you give me more guidance to make sure this is done correctly?
If you are using catalog for pricing, you can try the following.
In the catalog, have a characterestic for the operator cost rate.
Assign a condition type to this characterstic in customising. (Equipment und Tools Management (ETM)->Operations and Functions->Pricing->Assign Price Lists/Condition Types/Catalog Characteristics)
In the pricing procedure you might have to use a formula to multiply the rate with number of days or hours and arrive at the exact value. Now in the sales order created for the ETM shipping document you should have a condition with operator costs.
In customising (Equipment und Tools Management (ETM) -> Operations and Functions -> Account Determination -> Determine Posting Rules) You can define the Posting Type - "Providing Party" and "Posting Type - Debited Party" for the particular condition type for the operator cost.
Hope ths helps.
