Cost center Std Hierarchy

Hello folks,

Points available. I am setting up cost centers for 2 CoCd's (UK and US). I have called my Std hierarchy TEST_STDH. If both my CoCd's have similar departments (Cost Centers), what would be the best way to set it up in the Std Hierarchy?

I think I have to set it up the following way:

<b>Standard Hierarchy</b>...........<b>Name</b>................<b>Activation status</b>...........<b>CoCd</b>

TEST_STDH

.........SALES

.............US00001...............Product Sales.....Green.............................US

.............UK00001...............Product Sales.....Green.............................UK

........SHIP_WHSE

.............US00002...............Shipping.............Green.............................US

.............UK00002...............Shipping.............Green.............................UK

........MARKETING

.............US00003...............Marketing...........Green.............................US

.............UK00003...............Marketing...........Green.............................UK

Would this be a proper way of setting up the Std Hierarchy and Cost Centers?

    Hi,

    I would personally prefer to set-up the Std. Heirarchy based on Company Code and then Dept. wise Groups. In our Compay we have this sort of set-up.

    TEST_STDH

    .......US

    ...........SALES

    ...............SA01

    ...............SA02

    ...........SHIP_WISE

    ...............SH01

    ...............SH02

    ...........MARKETING

    ................MK01

    ................MK02

    .......UK

    ...........SALES

    ...............SA01

    ...............SA02

    ...........SHIP_WISE

    ...............SH01

    ...............SH02

    ...........MARKETING

    ................MK01

    ................MK02

    Thanks,

    Ashok

    Hi,

    The way you have planned to set up standard hierarchy is fine. However, when you are planning the hierarchy also think about future requirements / expansion plans of the organization etc. Further, if Profit Center Accounting is also activated consider that also if the Profit Centers are to be mapped with Cost Centers.

    Thanks

    Murali.

    Hi,

    this should be good. we have similar kind of stup, where we start with plant for the cost center. but remeber if u add some more company codes in US and Uk how u r going to name them. So think about the company codes that would add in future. So better keep the comapny code as starting digits followed by 1 for sales, 2 for shiping and 3 for amrkeitng and define the rest of the numebrs freely.

    ex: for comany code US00 for sales US001***, for shipping US002***

    Assing points if helpful
