BPC Cost allocation BADI (YTD/PERIODIC model)

We have to create a cost allocation model for a budgeting and forecasting applications.

Since the cost allocation methodology has some complex rules, we are planning to create a separate application with BADI. The application will store parameters(as USING variables), and then the BADI can pull/read the WHAT from multiple source applications.

Source Applications are: Actuals data[periodic] ; Budget and Forecast Data[Full Year] .

Now the requirement is to get the resultant data set into another TARGET application which needs the ACTUALS in YTD whereas the Budget data and Forecast data should be calculated for the remaining months.

Please help us with the below:

  • How should the target application be created (YTD / Periodic)
  • What complications should we consider when converting Periodic data to YTD?
  • The YTD for our business scenario will be for Fiscal Year (July to June)
  • Is it possible to have views of the YTD within the same application, where Jan-Dec (YTD) / July-June(YTD)

    The idea is not clear. It's a bad idea to have different applications for actual and planning data.

    In most cases you don't need a badi to perform even very complex allocations, script logic runallocation will do the job.Script logic can convert data from periodic to YTD.

    It's not possible to have calendar and fiscal year in the same model.
