# plan and actual AT

Hi,

For plan AT, total plan cost in kp06, quantity in kp26, kspi to get rate and update to kp26.

cost / quantity = rate

For actual AT, quantity entered via, example kb21n and rate via kp26. then we able to get the cost.

quantity x rate = cost

From the above, may I know why plan is to get rate whereas actual is to get total cost? Why there is a difference.

Thanks

1) For plan AT, total plan cost in kp06, quantity in kp26, kspi to get rate and update to kp26.

cost / quantity = rate

This process is to CALCULATE PLAN ACTIVITY PRICE.

2) For actual AT, quantity entered via, example kb21n and rate via kp26. then we able to get the cost.

quantity x rate = cost

here, the actual activity rate is updated in kp26. and this reate will be used for calculating the cost of total activity hourse consumed.

similar to point 1, what you have explained, there is a separate process to calculate, ACTUAL ACTIVITY RATE, and update in KP26.

comparing point 1) with point 2) is not correct.

Hi,

1)

I have actual quantity which entered in kb21n but rate is plan rate in kp26.

when i settle to sales order, the total cost is standard cost.

So meaning i get plan rate which calculated from 'plan AT' below in order to get the cost?

'plan AT', total plan cost in kp06, quantity in kp26, kspi to get rate and update to kp26.

cost / quantity = rate

2)

as it is internal allocation, how to know actual cost so that can divide with actual quantity to get actual price?

Here you are referring the Actual activty price and plan price for direct or indirect activity allocation.

these are generally done at Plant price i,e KP26.

The actual price plays a role when you wanted to revaluate the production orders with the actual price. In cost center, you dont have revaluation concept.

3)

to get the actual cost and actual price is for what purpose? to update kp26 which i do not think so.

the above is for revaluating the production orders which gets update if you run KSII transaction code and updates KBK6
