CCA month end steps

What is the month end step sequence for cost centers?

Say, at the end of the month I only have primary costs posted and direct activity allocations (from Production Order confirmations) for direct cost centers.

I now want to run T=A for indirect cost centers and I want to calculate target costs and variances.

What is the correct sequence and best transactions to use?

Thank you

    Dear JanvdM,

    Thank you for utilizing the SDN Forums,

    Please see the following that may help clarify all the steps for month end in CO:

    Month end closing Activities in Controlling(CO)

    1. Calculate Overheads on all process Orders (CO43)

    2. Technically complete all process orders which are fully processed (CORM).

    3. Calculate Variance (KKS1) (Relevant only if Standard cost is calculated).

    4. Settle all process orders which are technically complete (CO88).

    5. Close All settled Process Orders

    6. Close FI Posting period after the month end closing activity is over (T.Code:OB52)

    7. Calculate production work in progress on process orders which are not technically complete. (CO88).

    8. Carry out Assessment cycle for Cost Centers.(T.Code: KSUB)

    9. Carry Forward Balances to next year

    (With TC: F.16 we can carry forward the balance to next year.

    With TC: OBH2 copy the number ranges to next year

    Assessment cycle varies from company to company as per requirement.

    The steps explained by Brendon is ok.

    However KSUB is for plan assessment cycle. KSU5 is for Actual assessment cycle.

    These are generally carried out initially for allocation of overhead or other primary cost for calculation of Activity rate on production cost centers as required.

    Check out the scenario in your organisaton.
