    Hi Gautam,

    Dimensions is used as base for cost accounting.

    Suppose you wish to capture and analyse cost on department, then you need to create a dimention named Department, under which you can define multiple (Profit Centre) department like 1.Sales 2.Purchase 3.Administration 4.Logistic 5.Production 6.Quality etc...

    Suppose you wish to capture and analyse cost on Product Group/Mix, then you need to create a dimention named Product Group/Mix, under which you can define multiple (Profit Centre) Product Group/Mix like 1.Fruit 2.Vegetable 3.Grain 4.Medicine 5.Crockery etc..

    Then you have to create ditribution rule , in which you will define how to distribute income/expense over Profit Centre/Cost Centre.

    I believe above will not only clear your understanding for SAP B1 definition of dimention, but the whole cost acconting concept.

    However still If you need more help on this, please provide following information.

    What exactly your expectation from Cost accounting as a whole?
