SOS for CO - Overhead Cost Controlling (COOM)


I am PP/PM Consultant , Would request some knowledge sharing about CO.

Understand in standard SAP Overhead Cost Controlling consist of 3 component following :

o Cost Center Accounting

o Internal Orders

o Activity based costing

Overhead costs are defined as costs that cannot be assigned directly to cost objects.

My Question :


In one Plant , can we use all the above ? Or we can only use either one ?

Understand there is cost apportionment in CO , If we using Overhead cost controlling , can we still use this function ?

Is cost Apportionment only applicable for CO Product in Production Planning ? What's the prerequisite ?

Thank you.

    Cost objects like cost centers and internal orders are maintained at a controlling area level. They would be linked to a company code.

      Yes, sure you can. However it would be a long story to convince you. But first I revert the question:

      Can we use different material groups in one company code?

      The above mentioned 3 areas generally doing the same but with different functionalities but the story is the same:

      Storing and sending costs from one place to another, sometimes grouping them sometimes transforming them.
