HI,

I think it is helpful for you,

Primary cost componenent split

A structure that groups the costs of an activity type, a process or a

material into cost components.

In Overhead Cost Controlling (CO-OM), the primary cost component split

provides information on the makeup of the price for an activity type.

In Product Cost Controlling (CO-PC), the primary cost component split

(Release 4.0) is an alternative way of grouping the cost of goods

manufactured that shows the primary costs for internal activities.

Auxilary cost component split

Definition

You can cost two cost components splits simultaneously. To do this,

define one split as the main cost cost component split; the second split

becomes the auxiliary cost component split.

Use

This enables you to cost, for example, a primary cost component split

and a cost component split for cost of goods manufactured at the same

time. It is also possible to create only one primary cost component

split or one cost component split for cost of goods manufactured.

Procedure

Enter the number of the cost component structure for the auxiliary cost

component split, if you want to cost a second cost component split

parallel to the main one.
