Overhead Calculation

Hello friends

I've got a peculiar question here.

Suppose if the labour costs are posted as a negative figure, does the SAP still calculate overheads on it? I mean, does the CO43 / KGI2 still include the negative labour costs for overhead calculation? Why?

Many thanks

RASA

    Hi,

    Good morning and greetings,

    Basically the labour costs is rolled up the price planning of KP26, where the activity type & cost center combinations are maintained...You can maintain a negative figure in there and the system will calculate the overhead percentage mentioned in your costing sheet in negative...Please Note, that this is possible only for planned values, accounting negative in actual values is not feasible.

    Please reward points if found useful.

    Thanking you,

    With kindest regards

    Hi,

    Basically KGI2 is used for calculating actual Overhead on Production / Process Orders. Overhead is caluclated irrespective of the value whether it is positive or negative. It is simple percentage on the base value of expenditure.

    Overhead calcuation postings will be done only in CO and it will not impact FI.

    Overhead is relevant for analysis, if the Price Indicator of the Finished / Semi finished goods is 'Standard'. If the Price Indicator for these materials is 'V' ie., moving avegare, then the overhead impacts the moving average price of the corresponding output materials.

    Overhead percentages can be maintained seperately ie., difference percentages for Plan and Actuals.
