Capital Planning during AuC


Hello All,

I am looking for a process in SAP for planning capital expenditures. Given below is an example of the requirement:

An asset worth $1,000,000 is being built and is expected to be put into service on June 01, 2012.

Assume that cost worth $600,000 has already been incurred, posted to the WBS element and settled to the AuC.

Using investment profile and depreciation simulation functionality we could simulate future depreciation expense w.e.f. June 01, 2012 of the $600,000 that has been incurred so far .

We would like to forecast and plan the remaining $400,00 over the next two years (June 2010 to May 2012).

We want to compare and report variances between the plan and actual expenditures that we are going to incur in the next two years.

We want to do monthly planning exercise in different planning versions so that we could capture what was planned and how much did we actually incur month-over-month for the next 24 months.

As and when the actual costs are incurred, we post to the WBS element and settle to the AuC at the end of each month.

I hope I have expressed my requirement clearly. How do we achieve this requirement in SAP? What are the different alternatives that could be used?

Your input, help and guidance is greatly appreicated. Please let me know if you need any additional information.
