This is a good example of overhead cost calculation. So you can add a percentage (say 5% of labor costs) or a constant amount on top of your labor costs. The calculation is configured by Finance in the costing sheet and applied to different order types. It is obvious that you will need some approximations/assumptions for this. For example, your manager's and other office resources' (engineers, reliability team etc.) costs was 100K last year. And your total maintenance order costs was 1M. Therefore 10% Overhad Surcharge will be logical for this year.
The following site has all the detailed information you may need:
The SAP PM/CS side of the story is pretty much the same but you need to run one more transaction before cost settlement in order to calculate the surcharges: KGI2
What I suggest is get some Finance Help to set up the Costing Sheet for the surcharges. Ihope this helps.
