Issue when running an allocation cycle (assessment cycle).


Dear community,

I had an issue when running an allocation cycle: the cost of an activity is not transferred to an account of the receiver cost center.

I checked the points below:

  • The overhead allocation cycle: the set-up of the actual assessment cycle for each segment in this cycle (senders/receivers, senders values, rec. tracing factor, rec. weighting factors) and all the parameters are ok.
  • The cost elements groups: all the G/L accounts are properly included.
  • The statistical figures: ok.

In the app Schedule Accounting Job (Actual Overhead Allocation: Cost Centers), for this cycle, there is no output message (for the segment with cost not allocated).

The workaround proposed was a manual allocation (with the app Reassign Cost and Revenues), in order to allocate the cost (not transfered from the sender cost center) in the account of the receiver cost center.

I looked into the details of the G/L account (primary cost for depreciation) and I noticed that the account assigment is diferent, the cost is related to a WBS element (and the functional area is not production like the others) and this cost is already allocated to a final asset with the settlement rule of a Investment Project already closed.

Is the root cause of the issue? Am I missing something?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Best regards,
