With this business function, you can use the PM/CS order operation as a controlling object. This permits the detailed planning, capture and reporting of costs at the order operation level. The operations have their own settlement rules enabling more accurate cost updating of multiple assets maintained using a single PM/CS order.

In addition, operation account assignment offers you the following business benefits:

  • Reduced number of orders which in turn reduces order backlog

  • Improved asset valuation due to more granular job costing

  • Enhanced regulatory reporting capability
