Overhead calculation: Project with one costing sheet and WBS with different costing sheet

Hello Experts,

I'm not very familiar with this CO-PS process.

We have a Project and multiple WBS - all with a costing sheet X with the exception of a single WBS with costing sheet Y. All of these WBS are the same level.

Now I schedule a batch job: Execute CJ45 for all WBS with costing sheet X & Y.

My confusion is:

1. Whether running a single job for all WBS in a project with different costing sheet causes any issue?

2. Is there a need to calculate OH for the single WBS with costing sheet Y separately during month end?

Please help me out.

Thanks,

Max

    Hi Mahesh,

    Exactly what issue you are facing, is the overhead calculation is not correct ?

    Practically execution with Multiple WBS element and Multiple Costing sheet should not be a problem, in case of any issue, first try to pick WBS element with same Costing sheet and see whether it calculates correctly. So this can reduce your confusions first.

    Regards

      Hello Maria,

      We had our OH calculation job run finally and came across a different issue. There is no OH calculation being done for newly configured Project/WBS/Network.

      • We compared this one with a Project differing only in company code. However its OH was successfully calculated. The costs were of same nature - same cost elements, same costing sheet, same controlling area etc.
      • It was the same overhead job for both the above projects of different company code. But no error message or any information about the WBS/Networks of the new project - it was totally not considered by the job for calculation.

      Since this issue has left us puzzled, we raised an OSS message.

      Cheers,

      Mahesh
