PS Quotation Creation DIP profile - Material Direct Problem

Hello Experts

     We are implementing in constructional development company that uses PS to subcontract with external parties to build either (Villas or Towers). A Sample of the project structure is as follows: -->

[v = closed / > = Open / o = Final Level]

>Villas Project Definition

v WBS    Block 1

v WBS    Block 2

> WBS    Block 3

    v WBS     Villa 31          Billing Element

    v WBS     Villa 32          Billing Element

    > WBS    Villa 33          Billing Element

         > Network Header

         > WBS      Phase 1

           o    NWA     Activity 1

           o    NWA     Activity 2

           o    .  etc

         > WBS      Phase 2

           o    .  etc

           o    NWA      Activity 11

           v    NWA      Activity 12

             o     Material     "Villa XYZ"          Reservation for Network     Assembly Item -1 EA      Not-Cost-Relevant

The same structure goes for towers but instead of "Villa" there is "Floor" as a billing element. and no "Blocks".

Each Villa WBS ends with depositing a Non-Valuated finished product material unit using a material component with -1 quantity. Finished product number range is [V-210000 : V-219999] for Villas, and [T-240000 : T-249999] for Towers.

Material Master Data:

V-210001          Main Villa

V-210005          Villa XYZ

T-240001          Main Tower Apartment

T-240006          Tower Apartment ABC

We are trying to use the DIP profile in quotation creation for each villa alone and make it use the material number [i.e. V-210005] in the project under the [i.e. Villa 33 WBS element] instead of using the material number defined in DIP profile header for material determination [V-210001]. We are using T-Code DP82 for sales pricing. The requirement states that there is no Easy Cost Planning so we are using the network planning and network costs instead.

"DEWE" DIP Profile, Sales Area, Partner Determination Procedure, Sold-to Party are all assigned to project Definition.

DIP Profile Configuration Made:

"DEWE" DIP Profile

     Usage:     Quotation Creation     Sales Document "AP"

                                      Material>          Set: TOWERS   = [T-240000 : T-249999]




When executing DP82 for the project or WBS element, DIP Profile does not consider the existence of the material "V-210005 Villa XYZ" in the project and issues the following screen.

When I pass this screen I get this error:

Error during material determination for project K.14005, billing element K.14005.01.01

Message no. AD01154

How can I use the DIP Profile and the function of "Material Direct" successfully to make the finished material in the project appear in the quotation????

     In the material master record --> Costing 1 View --> you have to tick the check box, Material Origin
