    In HR when a person is assigned to a cost center, all the costs associated with that person (eg, salary ) is directly posted in that cost center.

    Usually person will be assigned to a position. Position in turn will be assigned to sum departement in HR. Usually in SAP we assign cost center to these departments. Whoever hired under that department, their costs will be captured by this cost centers during the payroll run.

    Hi,

    IOn my view,

    Maste cost center is the cost center which is assigned to root Org unit. and other cost centers are under the master cost center which are assigned to CUB units.

    Thanks,

    Vasu.

      There will not be any link between Master cost center and the other cost centers. Master cost center is nothing but a cost center. Since it is related to some root org unit we call it as Master cost center (it is just the naming convention we use to treat that particular cost center)

    You can see the master cost center of an employee on IT0001.

    Hi Archana,

    when an employee is Active then he/She should be assigned to an Organisation(O) , Position(P) and cost centre(K) ,So these 3 objects were interlinked and this is known as master data maintenance of Employee, If an employee is Inactive/Pensioner then he/she doesn't have any Org assignment. But he/She should get the Pensioner benifits.So, these were assigned to special cost centre.

    Regards,

    Narendra.
