Sales Order Processing – Project-Based Services (J14)

Sales Order Processing – Project-Based Services describes the entire process sequence for the sales order maintenance and the billing process within the project-based services scenario. It includes the billing subprocesses and encompasses the creation of billing documents (invoices), credit memos, manual credit memo requests, and manual debit memo requests.

In the invoicing subprocess, the leading customer project management process triggers the creation of a debit memo request, which is transformed into a customer invoice.

In the credit memo subprocess, a credit memo is created with reference to an existing customer invoice.

In the manual debit memo subprocess, a debit memo request is created manually and then sent to billing where a corresponding customer invoice is created.

Finally, these processes transfer to the Accounts Receivable process.
