We need to confi. CO for the following requirement.

For this services business want to know cost and revenue (profitablitiy) on periodical basis.

I think Profit centre will be fulfilled this requirement.

You tell me how can I map It.

2. What confi. needs to be required in FI (regarding Cost Elements)

3. What conf. needs to be required in MM (about material masters & profit centre assignments)


These two service centre are having the following costs:

1. Man power (these elements having GL accounts)

2. Spare parts (Its having material masters, and goods issued to this service cost centers from unrestricted stock and consumed in this service cost centres with respect to service order)

3. Other expenses (maintainence cost of service centre; these cost elements having GL accounts)

Please guide me in this regard.
