Cost center planning sequence
I previously worked on manually calculated labor rates and entered in KP26 directly. First time trying to implement automatic planning sequence in SAP for a manufacturing company.
I’m trying to understand cost center planning process and sequence. May be I’m asking too many questions here. Please bear with me.
Is this sequence is correct for cost center planning?
1. Activity type planning KP26 -->enter activity type quantities
What type of activity types and quantities should be entered here for planning?
2. SKF planning -->KP46
What is use of SKF planning and what type of cost center(only production cost centers?) is used for planning?
3. Activity Independent planning -->KP06
What type of cost centers(only production cost centers?) are used for Activity Independent planning?
4. Activity Dependent planning -->KP06
What type of cost centers(only production cost centers?) and activity type are used for Activity Dependent planning?
5. Plan Allocations -->Assessment, Distribution etc
Will run allocations for cost centers or only few cost centers (only production cost centers?)? Which type of cost center will included in these type of allocations?
6. Indirect activity allocations?
In what case indirect activity allocations are used?
7. Activity price calculation using splitting -->KSPI
What type of cost centers (only production cost centers?) and cost elements are assigned to splitting structure?
Any help is appreciated…
