Calculating cost using formula in work center.

I am trying to calculate the cost of operation in the work center. I have created 3 attributes and assigned it to one standard value key. Then I defined three formulas to calculate the time of the attributes separately and one formula for calculating the total time.

Attributes: PM01, PM02, PM03.

Standard Value Key: SAP7

Formulas: PM_01 (to calculate PM01), PM_02 (to calculate PM02), PM_03 (to calculate PM03) and SAP_PM (to calculate total time).


Formula for PM_01: "( ( PM01 * SAP_09 ) / SAP_08 ) / SAP_11". Same for PM_02 and PM_03.

Formula for total cost: "( ( SAP_09 * ( PM01 + PM02 + PM03 ) ) / SAP_08 ) / SAP_11".


I set up an activity type '3' for the cost center 1000 (Controlling Area 1000). fixed price 200 USD per hour.


When I try to calculate the total cost in work center, the hour is calculating correctly but the cost is not being calculated correctly. If labor time is 10 H and 200 USD per hour is defined in KP26 for the activity type, then the cost should be 2000 USD but I am getting 1000 USD for labor cost. If I set the cost to 100 USD per hour (in KP26), I get 500 USD for labor cost. I.e. whatever I enter in KP26 fixed price, it takes the half of that.


Can you please suggest why the cost is calculating half of what it should calculate???


Please let me know if more details are required.
