Learn which tables the Business Content extractors for PS use to get their data. This will help you achieve more accurate extractions.

Project System (PS) is one of the more frequently used modules of SAP R/3, and not one of the most difficult modules from which to extract data into BW. Still, it is useful to know from which tables the Business Content extractors are getting the data and what that data is. This helps to ensure that you are extracting the information you need.

The list of the PS module’s Business Content objects is quite long, and since the PS module is closely related to the Finance (FI) and Controlling (CO) modules, some of its objects overlap with those of FI or CO. Consequently, I will give you an overview of the most important parts of the PS Business Content objects as delivered in BW 3.0B:

PS master data: The main components of PS master data are project definition, work breakdown structure (WBS) element, network, network activity, and orders. In a project, you can plan the organization of the work and people in your project with the WBS, and you can plan the processes and the sequence of tasks with the networks component. You can also assign various types of orders to a WBS element provided the WBS element is an account assignment element.
