For example:

I have projectA and projectB and now there is a employee 1,2and3. employee 1 has worked on A for 60 hours in a month and 540 hours on B in a month. say the cost is rs.100 per hour. Now I want to allocate 6000 rs. to A and 54000 to B. How do i do that.Please guide.

    Hello Vaishali,

    There are different ways of doing it.If you are using Cost Centre planning use Assessment cycles for sending costs (tcode KSU5 to send cost from CC to WBS)

    If you are planning to do it directly from WBS then use CJR2 planning using layout 1-702 based on WBS, Sender CC, Sender Activity type. Prioir to using this you need to plan costs in KP26 for combination of Cost Center and Activity type.

    Thanks

    I am not sure how the assessment cycles work in FI. But, I believe that it will be at the G/L account level to distribute costs to different WBS elements as a percentage of a fixed amount. That may not work if you need each individual's time to be captured project-wise, because each person may be working on a different set of projects, but the payroll cost will be normally booked on an expense G/L account.

    If you use CATS to have your resources enter their time, then each resource can potentially enter their time to individual project tasks (WBS/Network Activities), which could be transferred to each project using CAT7/CAT5 transfer tools. When entering time, an activity type can be maintained in the IT315 for the user, which is planned for, say, Rs.100 as a default activity type. Then, when the time is transferred to the project, the system calculates the total cost to that project as 8 hours x Rs. 100 = Rs800 and creates a confirmation on the project if done at the NWA level or a CO posting on the WBS element, as may be the case. Refer to the link below for more information on CATS:

      Alternatively, the system can be configured to allocate the actual basic pay of the employee to the project when the time is transferred to HR. In addition, if you have both employees and contractors charging to your projects, there may be additional advantages of integrating and transferring time to the MM component. Let us know what kind of a levarage you have with the solution alternatives.
