Hi Experts!

In general, there should not be under/over absorption of overheads.

But We faced some difference. But i could not identify exactly which "Cost elements" were not absorbed.

Example:

Cost centre debit:

PrimaryElement1 = 100

PrimaryElement2=50

PrimaryElement3=40

PrimaryElement4=50

Cost Centre credit:

SecondaryElementGroup1=150

Under/overabsorbed=90

From the above, understand that PrimaryElement3 & either PrimaryElement2 or 4 not absorbed. How to find exactly which one not absorbed. Do we have any table updates or Tcodes to identify cost element which unabsorbed.

Thanks & regards.

Hi Dandapani Subramanian,

What make you say that, there should not be any under/over absorption of overheads??

It all depend on your cost center planning, if your planning has difference than actual cost, certainly it going to give you difference in all the activity associated to it.

To analyse the difference you have to check you cost center planning.

Thanks,

Hi Nishan,

Apologies for not explaining in understandable manner.

My question is about cost difference after Actual Assessment Cycle step is over (ksu5).

We have assessment cycles to transfer cost from "Indirect Cost Centre" to "Direct Cost Centre" based on combination of cost centre and cost element.

In Assessment cycle we maintained rule. There is no issue in SAP since it is run as per rule.

After we run KSU5, there is balance in debit portion since some of the cost element not included in "from cost element group".

Cost centre debit:

PrimaryElement1 = 100 (ElementGroup#1)

PrimaryElement2=50 (ElementGroup#1)

PrimaryElement3=40

PrimaryElement4=50

Cost Centre credit:

SecondaryElementGroup1=150 based on ksu5 (segment rule)

Under/overabsorbed=90 (not absorbed / transferred to direct cost centre : PrimaryElement3 & 4).

Every time we are reconciling in excel based on "assessment cycle" and "cost center difference".

Do we have any report or table to identify the "PrimaryElement" which not transferred to "direct cost centre".

Hope i explained with clarity. If not, please give me a chance to explain further.

Thanks & regards.

Hi Dandapani Subramanian,

I assume your secondary cost element is from assessment allocation cycle. If that the case. Please check reverse your assessment and test run again. You should able to check from sender cost element group.

If the secondary cost element if from production activity then you need to perform actual price post to zeronize the balance.

Thanks.

what category of secondary cost element you are using. e.g. if you are using category 42 that means you are using assessment cycle in that case please check allocation cycle execution date and last actual cost posting date.please also check your source structure or cost element group in sender/receiver TAB in attached segment of assessment cycle.

And if its category 43, then its a production scenario in that case please check you activity planning
