Product Costing without use secondary cost element


Hi Experts,

I have a client with this request:

1. They have SAP system with PP, PM, SD, MM, FI, CO, Material Ledger modules.

2. They use maintenance orders, production orders, cost centers.

3. To carry on cost from cost object to other they use settlement, assessment, revaluate rates, with secondary cost elements.

4. REQUEST: They need to report the production cost with primary cost element only.

They tried with abap program without good results.

Now they want to try using Distribution method and Settlement with the same primary cost elements.

Step 1: From "Maintenance Labor cost center" to "PM Orders" using Distribution.

Step 2: From "PM Orders" to "User Cost Center", using Settlement with primary cost elements.

Step 3: From "Indirect cost center" to "Direct cost center" using Distribution.

Step 4: From "Direct Cost Center" to "Production Orders" using Distribution.

I would like to know your opinions. Is it feasible?

Thanks in advance for your help.
