Calculate Multiple Activity Rates in One Cost Center

Hi Everyone,

We currently have many cost centers allocating expenses (through assessment KSUB) into a few cost centers that calculate activity prices. Furthermore, the cost centers that calculate the rates have a few rates to calculate. So, can anyone tell me how to have the receiving cost center that would calculate 3 separate activity prices based upon secondary cost elements? I understand that when posting primary plan expenses in KP06, you can specify the activity type and cost element combination so that a rate can be calculated based on specific cost elements, but how is that performed on secondary cost elements allocated into a cost center?

Thanks,

Pete

    I am afraid, if you have option to peform assessment wherein the assessed cost directly lands in the receiveing cost center's specific activities.

    However, you can create splitting structure, that can build relation ship of cost element to activity types. Before calculating activity prices, run splitting.

    The budgets will be planned on the cost centers using KP06. You dont need any activty here. After doing all the budgets, you will do your assesments making all the postings. Then you will plan you activites on cost centers using KP26. This is planning of activity quantities not the dollar value. So now you have the budget and the activity quantities in the cost cenetrs. You will run the activity price calculation using KSPI in which each costcenter with the activity will divde the budget with quantities and will caluculate the rate per unit. This will be you activity prices. The role of secondary cost element here is it is associtate with activity and this is the link for cost center and activity. So the activity price will assosicated with secondary cost element. When you make any posting with these activites the posintgs will be booked against these activities.

      Hi PV,

      Almost got the picture. Its actually the receiving cost center that would calc the rates but it only receives secondary cost elements. So, the cost center with final destination of the expenses through allocations would then be the one needing to calculate multiple rates based upon the expenses allocated in.

      Example:

      CC 1000 & 1001 allocate all expenses into CC 1200 through secondary cost elements using KSUB. CC 1200 needs to calc 3 separate rates based upon the expenses received into it.

      Help out?
