    Hi Appu,

    The classical example of using Elimination of Internal Business Volume is when you don't want to display revenues made between two cost centers in an organization.

    You can find detailed information and some examples at this link:

    Hi Cezar,

    Thanks for the reply. But I could not basically understand why and when should we go for the elimination of internal business volume. I have gone thru the link and it made little sense to me. can u please explain the concept in still simpler terms.

    Many thanks.

      A very simple example:

      Cost Center A has six consultants. Five of them work for an internal project of cost center B and CC A receives 500.000 € per year from CC B. Total revenues are 700.000 €.

      CC B has 300.000 € (external) revenues.

      Now there is manager Dogbert who is responsible for both CC A and B. He says that his cost centers have a total revenue of 1.000.000 € (700.000 CC A + 300.000 CC B).

      But half of the revenues are paid by CC B for which he is responsible too. So his boss doesn't want to see the 1.000.000 € in BW but the 500.000 (external) revenues instead. That is basically what the IBV key figure shows (if configured correctly ;-).

      Best regards

      Dirk
