S_ALR_87013625 - Cost Centers: Actual/Target/Variance
I am looking to find the difference between S_ALR_87013625 - Cost Centers: Actual/Target/Variance and S_ALR_87013611 - Cost Centers: Actual/Plan/Variance. How is target cost calculated in cost centers?

As you read, the only difference between these two reports is the absence of target costs in the first report.
Target is defined as the planned rate for actual quantity. There is feature to record quantity in cost element planning.
The target is the same as the plan costs, if you have not recorded quantity. This is as far as the debit side are concerned.
On the credit, when actual indirect activity allocation take place the target gets filled derived by planned price for actual tracing factors.
There may be planned alocations based on planned SKF's. The target is derived only if actual SKF are maintained and actual cycles are run.
