Some question about asset depreciation value?

In our system, there is a asset acquisition value 3297600, use life 5 years.

We use Straight line to calculate depreciation value of one month is 3297600 / 5 / 12 => 54960, this asset will be completed depreciation in 2011/08,

Original Value

2011/01 -54960

2011/02 -54960

2011/03 -54960

2011/04 -54960

2011/05 -54960

2011/06 -54960

2011/07 -54960

2011/08 -54960

When our user transfer other asset value to this asset, the asset depreciation becomes a strange value.

The User trasnfers two asset value to this asset. The first asset transfered 303090 (Asset acquisition 3030900, Accumulated depreciation -2727810) in 2011/03/31, The second asset transfer 12480 (Asset acquisition 149,760, Accumulated depreciation -137,280) in 2011/04/30

User expects the deprecaition value as below

2011/01 -54960

2011/02 -54960

2011/03 -54960 + -50515

2011/04 -54960 + -50515 + -2496

2011/05 -54960 + -50515 + -2496

2011/06 -54960 + -50515 + -2496

2011/07 -54960 + -50515 + -2496

2011/08 -54960 + -50515 + -2496

But current asset calculated the deprecaition value as below

2011/01 -54960

2011/02 -54960

2011/03 -54960 + -50515

2011/04 -54960 + -50515 + -2496

2011/05 -54960 + -50515 + -2496

2011/06 -54960 + -50515 + -2496

2011/07 -54960 + -50515 + -2496

2011/08 1,949 (?)

2011/09 -107,971 (?)

2011/10 98,534 (?)

2011/11 -100,483 (?)

I don't know why the SAP calculated depreciation period becomes to 2011/11?

How can I change the asset depreciation value to "User expects the deprecaition value"?

The user chooses depreciation key AS90 Configuration as below
