Retaining split in Fixed vs Variable after assessment


I have set up a sender cost centre, where the costs are split between fixed and variable. However, when I assess that to the production cost centre, then the result in the receiver cost cente looses the fixed/variable split. Is their any way around this?

    Yes, there is.

    DO KSPP, Then KSPI, KP06 (Fixed and variable in sender/ overhead cost center, via activity type)

    Set up a cycle in KSCB Internal Activity allocation. Use the sender rule "Quantities calculated inversely. This will copy the quantities from the various production cost centres back to the overhead cost centres.

    Then calculate the activity prices using KSPI. Now you will also have a fixed and variable price in the overhead cost center.

    Then run KSUB, the assessment to the production cost center will now retain the split between fixed and variable, as well as the link to the activity type.

    If you want all the costs on the sender/ overhead cost center to be treated as fixed, then skip the step KSCB, normal assessment will have the costs end up at the production cost center(s) as fixed.

    If you want all the costs in the sender/ overhead cost centre to be treated as variable, switch on the predistribution of fixed costs indicator, either on the activity type master data, or on the price calculation screen.
