    Hi,

    Both metods will help to allocate cost from one object to other object.If you book any exp to one cost center in online and you want to allocate this cost to other cost centers during month end.

    Distribution uses the original cost element for allocating cost to the sender cost center. Thus on receiving cost center we can see the original cost element from the sender cost center. Distribution only allocates primary cost.

    Assessment uses assessment cost element No 43 defined above to allocate cost. Thus various costs are summarized under a single assessment cost element. In receiver cost center the original cost breakup from sender is not available. Assessment allocates both primary as well as secondary cost.

    Hi,

    The difference between Distribution Cycle and assessment Cycle is very simple,

    Both the process are used for repost of cost from one cost centre to another.

    But a simple logic stand behind the both,

    As u know in SAP we have FI-CO, one is Finance which directly effects the G/L and other is Co- which uses

    category (CElem category) to represent the head G/L to which it has to post the cost indirectly. that is what Controlling.

    Distribution cycle is used for posting from 1 G/L to different G/L in Apportimate , EX G/L 11000 has 20 cr rupees in Cost centre A,

    By using Dist Cycle we ca post 10, 5 , 5 Cr to Y, Z G/L in Different CCtre.

    In same way Assement Cycle with sum seconary cost ement X Ccategory 21 internal has booked 25 lakhs in X cost centre, with

    sumother Secondary cost element Y u of same category , u can post 25 lakhs to cost centre y,z using Assement cylce

    configuration.

    Hope ur doubt has cleared.

    Regards,

    Pavanidlur,

    SAP PP

    Assessment is a method of allocating primary and secondary costs in Cost Center Accounting and Activity-Based Costing. The following information is passed on to the receivers:

    u2022 The original cost elements are assigned cumulatively, or in groups, to assessment (secondary) cost elements. The original cost elements are not recorded on the receivers.

    u2022 Sender and receiver information (sender cost center, receiver cost center, or business process) appears in the Controlling (CO) document.

    Allocation through assessment is useful when the composition of the costs is unimportant for the receiver. For example, the assessment of cafeteria costs to a cost center need not be broken down further.

    Distribution is used to allocate the primary costs of a cost center. The following information is passed on to the receivers:

    u2022 The original cost element (that is, the primary cost element) is retained.

    u2022 Sender and receiver information (for example, the identities of the sender and receiver cost center/business process) is documented using line items in the CO document.
