    Hi,

    For this activity called Assembly:

    1. Create 4 internal activity type called:

    a) work cost(work * hour),

    b) water rate cost (water * hour),

    c) electric rate cost(electric * Hour)

    d) and other cost (X * Hour

    2. Do not maintain the default Activity type in the work center. Keep it blank..

    3. Assign the same work center to all the activity elements in step 1.

    While selecting the activity type select the relevent Activity type.

    4. Now while confirming you can confirm individually or a collective confirmation..

    Other option is to have only one activity type and maintain all the rates by combining all the rates there.

    Or third option will be to maintain the costing sheet, so whenever the cost for Work cost is confirmed all the cost are calculated automatically.

    Hope its useful

    Reward points if useful.Revert back for any further queries.

    Thanks

      Like someone has already explained above, these are your options:

      1. Create a blended activity type rate that includes all these costs. Let's say the unit for rate is hour, you could have a base rate, then 10% for Overhead (water + electricity, etc...). That way, when you confirm an activity, you will have all the costs taken care of. However, here all your costs will goto a single cost element.

      2. Create separate network activities for each cost type, here you could use different cost elements.

      3. Use the costing sheet to calculate overhead costs and allocate to different activities.

      4. If your sole purpose is to capture costs, you could make journal entries (FB50) periodically on your network activities or WBS elements for that matter. You could also do KB21N for activity allocation.

      Basically, you will need to explain your scenario better. It all depends on the level of detail you are looking for and the amount of processing you are willing to do to get that.

      Reply back with your thoughts or reward points.

    Hi,

    the activity cost(work * hour) will be updated at the time of confirmation of activity.

    I think the other costs are overheads.

    To update the actual overheads the t.code is CJ44

      Hi,

      In PS, you can assign only one activity type to a activity. Hence you have 2 options:

      1. Create seperate activities

      2. If the hours is going to be same, ie all resources will be used for same time, you can create single activity type with total cost of all.

      Regards

    yes, the activity costs will be updated upon confirmation of the activity. however make sure that the cost centers, statistical key figures and work centers are properly configured. proper data must be maintained for the activity, work centers etc (such as activity duration, rates, period of time etc..) good luck..
