Cost Center as consolidation unit in SEM BCS
I'm about to design a data model for consolidation (SEM BCS).
I have a reporting requirement to produce consolidated reports on profit center and cost center level.
I'm thinking the reasonable thing would to have company & profit center as the consolidation units, but as I need to show figures for cost center level as well, does this mean I need to have cost center as consolidation unit also ?

The best approach in this case would most likely be to have the cost center as a subassignment. Only two characteristics may be assigned the role of cons unit. Typically it is company and profit center or company and business area.
Alternatively, the simplest approach is to have both profit center and cost center as subassignments and only the company as cons unit.
