Availability Control
Use These components enable you to monitor and control project costs. The project manager can use availability control to call up an overview of the assigned funds and see which type they are. Availability control enables you to control costs actively by issuing warnings and error messages when costs are incurred. Implementation Considerations The component is fully integrated with upstream and downstream components, for example: Controlling (CO) Financial Accounting (FI) Production Planning and Control (PP) Materials Management (MM) Features Availability control monitors funds using budget allocation. Passive Availability Control Overview of funds, their assignment and type Active Availability Control Prevents the assignment of too many funds If you enter business transactions that create costs on a Controlling element (for example, posting of an invoice), the system checks whether there is still sufficient budget available for the controlling element. For projects, you can also use releases as an alternative to the current budget. It uses the tolerance limits specified in Customizing for the check. For internal orders, see Controlling Internal Orders Budgeting and Availability Control Define Tolerance Limits for Availability Control. For projects, see Project System Costs Budget Define Tolerance Limits. For more information, see Defining Tolerance Limits. Availability control checks the current distributable budget (or release) against the assigned value. Distributable Budget The budget from the controlling element that is not yet distributed to other, lower-level WBS elements. Assigned Value Costs incurred by a Controlling element. For more information on the calculation of assigned values, see Assigned Values in Internal Orders. Assigned Values in Projects.

Assigned Values for Internal Orders


The assigned value for internal orders is calculated from: Actual costs Statistical actual costs Commitments Debit from settlement to internal order Credit from settlement to budget-controlled object (internal order, WBS element) Not used for calculation of the assigned value: Actual costs with a cost element defined in Customizing for availability control as an exempt cost element For more information, see the Implementation Guide (IMG) under Controlling Internal Orders Budgeting and Availability Control Specify Exempt Cost Elements for Availability Control (IMG transaction: OPTK).

Actual costs incurred from a business transaction that does not belong to the valid transaction groups in availability control. This can occur if you did not define ++ as the transaction group in Customizing for tolerance limits.

Basic Settings for Availability Control in Budget Profile


Use In the budget profile you determine whether/how availability control is to be activated and which budget values should be checked by availability control. Features You control whether/how availability control should be activated using activation types 0 = Cannot be activated, 1 = Automatic Activation with Budget Allocation, 2 = Backround Activation. More information is available in Activating Availability Control. For internal orders, availability control checks against the current budget. For projects, availability control can check against the current budget or the released budget. Furthermore, you can decide whether availability control is carried out on the basis of year-independent (= total values) or year-dependent values. The check can be run in the controlling area currency or the object currency. The check in the object currency is only possible for projects if the same object currency is used for all objects (WBS elements, networks, and orders) in a budgeting hierarchy. Dependent on the settings in the budget profile, availability control checks against one of the following values: Current overall budget in controlling area currency Current overall budget in object currency Current annual budget in controlling area currency Current annual budget in object currency Released overall budget in controlling area currency (only for projects) Released overall budget in object currency (only for projects) Released annual budget in controlling area currency (only for projects) Released annual budget in object currency (only for projects) The current budget is made up of Original Budget Supplement Return Repostings from the Budget

Specifying Tolerance Limits


Use When certain business transactions are entered that create costs on the corresponding Controlling-Element, the system checks whether the available budget or available released budget is sufficient. It uses the tolerance limits specified in Customizing for this check. For more information on specifying tolerance limits, see the implementation guide (IMG). For internal orders, see Controlling Internal Orders Budgeting and Availability Control Define Tolerance Limits for Availability Control (IMG transaction: SPRO). For projects, see Project System Costs Budget Define Tolerance Limits (IMG transaction: SPRO). Features You can specify tolerance limits for each controlling area, budget profile, and different Business Transaction Group.

Page 4 of 17

PS Availability Control
You can specify different tolerance levels with three possible options: [1] issue with a warning, [2] a warning and a mail to the project manager, [3] or an error message. You can define the tolerance limits as the usage level, and / or as an absolute variance from the current budget or the release. Usage Level This is the relationship between assigned funds and the budget, displayed as a percentage. Absolute Variance This is the difference between assigned funds and budget, displayed in an absolute amount. Irrespective of the settings in the budget profile, absolute variances can only be specified in the controlling area currency SAP recommends that you either specify a percentage usage rate, or an absolute variance for tolerance limits in availability control. If you defined a percentage usage rate and an absolute variance as a tolerance limit for a budget profile and a transaction group, the action you specified is triggered if the assignments exceed one of the two tolerance limits. Example Availability control of a current overall budget (EUR 100,000) Business Transaction Group Action 1 2 Percentage Usage Level 80 % 1000 Absolute Variance System Reaction For all business transactions, a warning is issued once EUR 80,000 assigned value reached. For all business transactions, a warning is issued and a mail is sent to project manager once assigned value of EUR 101,000 is reached. Purchase orders are prevented by error message once the assigned value of EUR 110,000 has been reached.

Availability Control Actions


When the tolerance limit is exceeded, the system does one of the following: Warning (Action One) The system informs you when the tolerance limit is exceeded. You can still execute the business transaction that triggered this (such as posting an FI document). Warning and Mail to The Project Manager (Action Two) The system sends the project manager a message containing the WBS element on which the budget was exceeded, and the business transaction triggered the excess. The amount by which the budget was exceeded and the document number are also specified.

Page 5 of 17

PS Availability Control
If no manager name is stored in the master record for the project or the WBS element, the system issues an error message instead of a warning and a mail. For orders, you maintain the budget manager in Customizing, under Controlling Internal Orders Budgeting and Availability Control Maintain Budget Manager (IMG transaction: SPRO).

Warning (Action Three) The system issues an error message if an action leads to the specified tolerance limit being exceeded. The system rejects the business transaction (such as a purchase order) that causes the budget to be exceeded.

Business Transaction Group


All business transactions are assigned to a transaction group in availability control. You can define an action that the system is to execute if a transaction were to use too many assigned funds. For more information, see Availability Control Actions. For the following transaction groups, you can define tolerance limits for different actions in each budget profile. To do so, in Customizing: For internal orders, choose Controlling Internal Orders Budgeting and Availability Control Define Tolerance Limits for Availability Control (IMG transaction: SPRO). For projects, choose Project System Costs Budget Define Tolerance Limits (IMG transaction: SPRO). All transaction groups This general transaction group simplifies entry and is useful if you do not want to define separate tolerance limits for every transaction group. If a tolerance limit is defined for all transaction groups, you can still define a limit for one transaction group. This limit takes precedence before the "general" tolerance limit. The tolerance level and action defined for all transaction groups are ignored if additional entries are available for a specified transaction group. Purchase Requisition Purchase order Project Orders During planning for a project order, changes to the residual order plan are checked. The system also uses this transaction group to check the assignment and dependency of an order/network that already has assigned values. Postings to project orders are checked in the relevant transaction group, for example a purchase order from a project order is checked in the purchase order transaction group. Goods withdrawal Financial Accounting document For postings in Financial Accounting Controlling Document For postings in Cost Accounting. Budgeting During the project, it is possible that the budget may be reduced, even though assigned funds already exist in the project. You require this transaction group to enable availability control to take into any account retrospective budget changes. If this causes the assigned funds to exceed the tolerance limit of availability control, the system refers you to the error log when you check or save the budget. The log contains warnings or error messages issued by the system when the tolerance level was exceeded. Funds reservation (manual commitment) Fixed prices in project

Activating Availability Control


Use In the budget profile, you use Activation Type to define whether, and how, availability control is to be activated. Features There are three different activation types: 0 = Cannot be activated 1 = Automatic Activation With Budget Allocation 2 = Background Activation If you chose background activation, you can activate Online Availability Control for a specific project. Activities When availability control is activated, the system does the following: Determination of WBS elements carrying budget ("controlling elements") Determination of associated assigned funds. It checks the assigned funds against the controlling element budgets. The assigned funds can be on the budget-carrying WBS element, the lower-level WBS elements and their assigned project orders. After activation, each posting to the project is checked by the availability control. As availability control affects system performance, you should activate it in the background for projects with less detail, only when you think that the budget may be exceeded.

Activating Availability Control with Budget Allocation


Use In the budget profile, you selected Activation type 1 for availability control. This means that the availability control is automatically activated when you make entries (or release budget, if this is to be checked). Availability control is always defined for a particular budget profile, and you need to define a tolerance limit for at least one business transaction group for the budget profile. Once you enter a budget for a project with the corresponding budget profile, the availability control is activated. For technical reasons, availability control cannot be activated automatically for hierarchical projects (assigned to an investment program) when budget is allocated from the investment program item to the assigned WBS element. Activation follows automatically during the first background activation run or during further allocation in the project. Availability control for internal orders from existing projects for top WBS elements is activated automatically during budget allocation of investment program items.

Activating Availability Control in the Background


Course Prerequisites In the budget profile, you chose activation type 2 (background activation) for availability control. Background activation for availability control checks whether or not the usage level defined in the budget profile has been reached. If the usage level is exceeded, availability control is activated. You can start the batch run for availability control automatically. In The Project System (Same Procedure as for Internal Orders) In the project system, select the projects that you want to start in the batch run.

Deactivating Availability Control


Once availability control is activated, you can deactivate it for one or several projects. This is useful if: Availability control was activated in by mistake. If availability control on the basis of the annual budget was active for the previous year, but activation for the recently started fiscal year is not advisable.

For activation type 1, availability control is reactivated at the next budget. Permanent deactivation of availability control can only be ensured using activation type 0.

Excluding WBS Elements From Availability Control


A project and its WBS elements go through different stages, or statuses. The status determines whether or not you can use certain business transactions. You can exclude a WBS element with budget and the lowerlevel account assignment elements from availability control. You do this by activating a user status for the controlling element, for which the availability control business transaction is not allowed. If a WBS element has this status, then the assigned funds are not included in the availability control, in other words, no action is triggered. However, the assigned values are still updated on the controlling element. For more information on how to create a user status, see the SAP Library under Financials PS-Project System Structures Status Management.

Reconstructing Availability Control


In Customizing, you can start reconstruction of the assigned values. You need to do so if: You are introducing a new release You have changed the settings for availability control in the budget profile You have changed the tolerance limits for availability control You have redefined exempt cost elements You have changed the settings for updating order values on orders for the project You suspect that there may be data inconsistencies, for example in objects from older releases, or after corrections were installed for budgeting / availability control. When you execute this function, the system redetermines the assigned values for the selected projects. It also creates references to the budget carrying objects, and transfers the new settings for the budget profile to the budget table.

Availability control is to be executed on a project, although the project has not yet been budgeted. Availability control with action two (mail to project manager) does not send a mail when the assigned values are exceeded. An error message appears. No manager name has been entered in the WBS element, or in the project definition. Post an original budget to the top WBS element. Then execute a return for the same amount. The current budget is zero. Availability control is now active. Enter the project manager name in Customizing, under Project System Structures Operative Structures Work Breakdown Structure Specify Person Responsible for WBS Element (IMG transaction: OPS6).

A warning appears.

Enter the user name of the project manager in Customizing, under Project System Structures Operative Structures Work Breakdown Structure Specify Person Responsible for WBS Element (IMG transaction: OPS6). Note that you need to enter the name in upper case letters.

Neither a warning nor an error message appears. When you post a goods receipt or enter an activity, this does not trigger an availability control action, although the tolerance limit was exceeded. The system does not check the assigned values during goods receipt.

Availability control is not active, or the tolerance limits have not yet been exceeded. For technical program reasons, only the assigned value is updated when you post a goods receipt, or enter an activity.

Activate availability control or maintain the tolerance limit accordingly. For more information, see: Activating Availability Control Specifying Tolerance Limits Check whether you can solve the problem by using one of the solutions suggested below (see below: Posting a goods receipt or entering an activity).

Entries in TRWCI and TRWCA The program control table TRWCI (in which the installed components are stored) must contain the COFC entry (Controlling Funds Control). The TRWCA table contains the same components (fiscal year-related) as the TRWCI table. You can use this table to deactivate specific components for certain fiscal years. In the TRWCA table, the COFC component should be active until the year 2050. Posting a Goods Receipt or Entering an Activity Use the commitment values from the purchase order for the budget check.

PS Availability Control
Check whether tolerance limits were maintained for the purchase order transaction group. Before the purchase order, activate availability control. Check whether you can work with unevaluated goods receipts. In this case, the system updates the assigned values only once the goods receipt has taken place. When goods are received, the system checks the assigned values and if necessary, triggers the corresponding actions. Do not allow any more account assignment changes for the goods receipt posting.

To transfer budget, choose

Transferring Budgets
SAP Menu Path: Accounting Project System Financials Budgeting Transfer Transaction: CJ34 Use In an area of responsibility, it is possible that the budget becomes tight for one project while the budget for another project is still adequate. Transfers enable you to make the budget for one project available to another project. On the Transfer Budget: Initial Screen, you can enter a sender- and receiver year and a default value text for a large number of similar transfers. You can also specify whether the overall values are to be included for the sender WBS element. Enter the sender- and receiver WBS element, the amount and the currency for the transfer. The sender year, receiver year, overall value, text and long text fields contain the default values. You can use the Detail function to change these fields. Course Prerequisites The currency of the transfer must be permitted for both of the affected WBS elements. The WBS elements can belong to the same project, or to several projects. Features You can differentiate between: Transfers between different WBS elements in the same period. The sender and the recipient cannot belong to the same subtree. Transfers between the same WBS element in different periods (also recourse or carryforward). Transfers between different WBS elements in different years

You cannot execute transfers in all project statuses. The WBS elements between which you want to transfer budget must have a status that permits the business transaction budget transfer. There are three different transfer transactions: Budget Transfer Recipient If the WBS element has a status that allows this business transaction, the WBS element can receive budget during a transfer. Budget Transfer Sender If the WBS element has a status that allows this business transaction, the WBS element can send budget during a transfer. Budget Transfer (Transfer) If the WBS element has a status that allows this business transaction, the WBS element can send and receive budget during a transfer.

The procedure for a transfer is the same as for a Supplement for a Project or a Return From a Project, except that you specify a sender or recipient WBS element (or year). The system also maps any transfers between objects of lower hierarchy levels to the objects on higher hierarchy levels.

If budgeting in the object currency, the following problems may occur with transfers:

Page 15 of 17

PS Availability Control
The system only includes budget items in the relevant object currency in the Entered Budget. Transfers made in other currencies are not displayed as an entered value in objects from higher hierarchy levels. The system includes all budget items in the current budget.

To display the budget line items for a WBS element, choose Logistics or Accounting Project System Financials Budgeting Original budget Change (SAP Easy Menu transaction: CJ30). You entered the following budget values in a project structure plan with two subtrees and five objects with different object currencies. You now make a transfer between two WBS elements of the lowest hierarchy level: $100 from WBS element 1.1.1 to WBS element 1.2.1. The current budget in the project structure plan is now composed as follows: The WBS elements 1.1 and 1.2 have the object currency EUR. The transferred $100 is displayed in the line item report. The entered value of WBS element 1.1 is still 2000 EUR and the entered value of WBS element 1.2 is still 100 EUR, as the system only includes budget items entered in EUR.

Overall values too


Use
When you choose this indicator, the tozal budget is changed by the same amount as the annual budget: In supplements to the budget for the receiver In returns and transfers against the budget of the sender

Dependencies
If you set this indicator in Funds Management, you must also specify a fund for the FM area. If you want to add, return, or transfer total values, choose this indicator and leave the year fields empty.

Note: For each line included in this document, the system creates 8 lines (4 for sender structure and 4 for receiver structure). Take care at total line number because the system allowds only 999, in fact in this case (CTA project) 992 = 8 x 124 (8 multiple)! So, only 124 lines can be included in each document.
