Assessment issue

Dear Experts,

Good Afternoon.

I have created Plan Assessment cycle using tcode KSU7 for the year 2013 (Jan-Dec) and executed using tcode KSUB. I need to distribute 100% of Sender indirect costs for 2 receivers (96%  and  4%).

Please suggest me the processes for Distribution, Assessment & SKF.

Thanks in Advance.

    Hi Venkat,

    Distribution and Assessment are used to allocate the cost between cost centers. Through Assessment we can also transfer relevant cost to COPA.

    Differences between Distribution and Assessment are:

    1. In distribution process, cost will allocate to receiver cost center(s) with the same cost elements which we have in sender cost centers. Wehere as in case of Assessment process, all the cost will carried through a secondary cost element category called 42 series. i.e. in receiver cost centers all the sender cost will be cumulated and stored in a 42 series category.

    2. Through Distribution, we can transfer only primary cost, where as in Assessment we can transfer both primary and secondary cost elements.

    Broadly, Distribution advantage: We can see the nature of expenditure which we are transferring

    Disadvantage: We cant transfer sencondary cost elements

    Assessment Advantage: We can transfer both primary and secondary cost elements

    disadvantages: We can't see the nature of expenditure because total cost will be carried through secondary cost element category - 42 series.

    Statistical Key Figure (SKF): It is base to allocate cost between cost objects.

    Eg: employee count - Each (EA), rent of a premises (SFT).

    Whenever you want to transfer the cost based on the above mentioned SKF figures, you can use it.

    Hope you understand the basic usage of Distribution and Assessment.
