Introduce Milestone Billing.
Milestones are an event with a special meaning. It can be used in a project to designate significant events or the completion of a project phase.
These are used in the Project System:
For progress analysis
As release stop indicators
To trigger predefined functions and workflow tasks
In milestone billing, the following functions are carried out at item level:
Determining billing document value on a percentage basis
Dates at header level are copied from all item billing plans assigned to that header. When you make changes at header level (e.g. new billing dates or changes to percentage rates), the related items are automatically changed accordingly. The system does not allow you to make changes at item level.
Dates generated in the header billing plan and milestones set in the header billing plan (Edit ® Generate dates ® Manual milestones) are copied to the item billing plans assigned to that header.
If you want to schedule milestones in an item separately from the header, you must first remove the item from the header billing plan before milestones can be assigned to it.
All manually set milestones will be deleted when you reassign this item to the header billing plan. Header data will once again be valid for the item.
Milestone billing is typically used for billing projects, such as plant engineering and construction projects. Such projects often include a series of milestones that mark the completion of different stages of the work. In the SAP System, milestones are defined in a network along with planned and actual dates for the completion of work. The milestones are also assigned to the billing dates in the billing plan. Each milestone-related billing date is blocked for processing until the Project System confirms that the milestone is completed. These can be attached to both WBS and Activated
Delivery-relevant order items for which a milestone billing plan applies are billed on the basis of the requested delivery quantity and not on the total of the confirmed quantities.
