Service Management – Basic Settings – Setting for Display of Costs – Maintain Value Categories

This next section of configuration one that I find particularly valuable.  One of the pieces of the service order is the cost tab.  I personally find this to one of the most valuable pieces of the service order.  The Settings for Display of Costs section allows you to define how those costs are displayed and grouped, making the information quickly readable and usable.  This first piece of configuration sets the categories you wish to display.


Here is the location within the IMG.  Select the Maintain Value Categories.


First select PM as the user component.

Then select the appropriate Controlling Area.


The remaining portion of the configuration is pretty straightforward.

Simply enter in the name of the Valuation Category you want to use, then give it the description, and set it as Cost or Revenue.  At this stage of configuration, it’s purely naming the categories.
