Central Projects (WBS) - Asset Settlement Scenario

The Central Projects (WBS) - Asset Settlement scenario allows you to run a process where you create and edit projects in a source system which are replicated to the Central Finance system. You can settle costs posted to a work breakdown structure (WBS) element in a source system to an asset under construction (AuC) and finally to a fixed asset in the Central Finance system.

Additional Details

With the Central Projects (WBS) - Asset Settlement scenario you can run the asset settlement process distributed between a source system and the Central Finance system. You allocate costs to WBS elements that are part of a project which you create and edit in a source system. The project master data and the FI documents, as well as the costs on the WBS element are replicated to the Central Finance system. The project master data is replicated using Application Link Enabling (ALE) and the FI documents are replicated using the SAP Landscape Transformation Replication Server (SLT), as is usual in Central Finance. In the Central Finance system, assets under construction are created automatically for the replicated WBS element. You can then settle the costs on the WBS element periodically to the asset under construction and when the construction phase of the respective asset is finished, you would settle the costs finally to the fixed asset.

Effects on Customizing

  • To enable the replication of project master data, you have to set up the ALE outbound and ALE inbound configuration which is described here.

  • There is a new IMG (Implementation Guide) activity available in Customizing of Central Finance where you enter the combinations of company codes and project profiles for which you want to activate the Central Projects (WBS) - Asset Settlement scenario.
