Manufacturing Overheads


The situation is that there is no PP module but we want to capture the manufacturing overheads in FI. Is there any way to book the expenses? There is a small process (not exactly production but overheads are incurred).

    Hi Devi.,

    If we dont have the PP module, we can capture the total overheads which are took place in the production process through by creating the CO-Production Order.

    In the customizing, we have to create the costing variant specically for the CO - production order, under

    We have make sure the following settings for CO-Production Orders.

    Product cost controlling --> Cost Object controling --> product cost order --> Manufacturing orders.

    1. Costing Variant for CO-Production order (PC01) T.code is OKY2

    2. Valuation Variant for CO-Production Order (001) T.Code is OKY5

    3. Order Type for Co-Production Order (CP01) T.code is KOT2

    4. Planning Profile for Co-Production Order T.Code is OKOS

    here we need to maintain the settlement, planning profiles, resident time for the co production order.

    5. Maintaining the Cost Accounting Relevant Default Values for Order Type & Plants.

    Where we assign the CO Order type for plants as default value along with

    Default Rule PP1 (Production Materials : Full Settlement)

    RA Key ( As Defined) to calculate the WIP for the CO-Production orders)

    Hope this will help you, if you want more details on specifics, inform me.
