This is to explain the standard behavior of the new function Service Bundling ,and will also provide some trouble shooting tips and importent programs.


In Extended Classic/Classic (excluding service procurement) Scenario, when SRM Purchase Order or Requisition with Service items were replicated to ERP, they were bundled as service lines under a single service item with item category 'D'. After the activation of the new Service Bundling function, SRM service items will not be bounded and can be posted to ECC PO in separate items.


In Extended Classic/Classic(excluding service procurement) Scenario, when SRM Purchase Order or Requisition with Service items were replicated to ERP, they were bundled as service lines under single service item with item category 'D'.

The drawback caused due to this behavour are:

•End user is confused about having different service item indifferent system for the same Purchase Order. Users see multiple service line items in SRM and single service item in ERP.
•Different account assignment for each service item not possible.
•Different vendor flags cannot be assigned for each service item.
•Creation of follow on documents: confirmation and invoice from SRM causes problem as one to one mapping of service items is not maintained between SRM and ERP
•Maintaining 'Document History' and updating 'Statistic Information' at item level is not feasible


With implementation of 'Service Bundling‘, each line item in SRM Purchase Order or Requisitions shall be replicated to ERP as different service items(D type) and will not bundled under single service item.

–For each service item in SRM, an item will be created in ERP with item category 'D' and service item will be replicated as service line under it.
–For each limit in SRM, an item will be created with category 'D' and it will be replicated as limit.
–The behavior for material items remains the same
–From end user perspective, same number of items are displayed in both systems
–Different account assignment for each item is possible
–Different vendor flags can be assigned to each item.
–As one on one mapping is maintained for service items in both systems, creation of follow on documents is devoid of issue
–It is possible to maintain 'Document History' and update 'Statistics Information' at item level
–Confirmation/service entry sheet will be created for each of the service items
–Existing Purchase Orders before the activation of Service Bundling Functionality will continue to behave as it was earlier. There will be no impact of service bundling



For this customizing, it is also necessary to activate the Business Function SRM_CONT_IMPR_2. For more details, check the documentation.
