Project cost planning from sales order?
Is it possible to use sales orders to build up the project cost plan?
Our current setup uses networks with components for cost planning. We use project delivery to ship out these components from stock. Unfortunately this method has a lot of limitations (ATP check doesn't read project deliveries, so you can deliver the same material several times, no schedule lines, no scheduling program to schedule project components based on availability and other orders in the system, not possible to add materials to an existing delivery etc.)
So we're looking at the alternative of using sales orders, linked to the WBS for delivering goods. However, I don't see an option to automatically have the cost of a sales order as planned cost on the WBS. So it seems when you use sales orders, you are obliged to do overall cost planning separately?
Thanks for your feedback!
