Information on Processing class and Evaluation class

hello xperts,

I want some information or material regarding processing class and evaluation classes

thanks and regards Ravishanker


Hi Shanker,

Processing classes

Processing classes are used during payroll calculations. There are numerous processing classes and the principal ones should be known to you as a payroll consultant. Look at the SAP standard wage types starting with a letter to see which processing classes have been assigned in those wage types to get an idea of the most important ones.

The table which holds these items is V_512W_D.

Evaluation classes

Evaluation classes are used post-processing of payroll. Take a look at the SAP standard wage types to see the most important evaluation classes.

The table which holds these items is V_512W_D.

Cumulation classes

Cumulation classes are used in payroll processing. In simple terms they can be likened to buckets which amounts are added to. Each cumulation class corresponds to a specific technical wage type. The technical wage type is always a value of 100 more than the cumulation class.

The cumulation class 1 (total gross) gets processed during payroll as /101.

The cumulation class 11 (pensionable pay) gets processed during payroll as /111.

PCs determine how the WT is to be processed during payroll

(they control processing during payroll)

ECs determine how the WT is to be evaluated during evaluating and displaying payroll results. (controls processing during evaluation and displ PY results)

Diff b/w processing class,cumulation class and evaluation class

Cumulations determine where the WT is to be cumulated into.

Go to sm31- V_512W_D - right click on a wage type and select details.

There you can see the processing classes, evaluation classes and cumulations pertaining to a WT.

In Cumulations if the box adjacent to Total gross is checked, that means that particular wage type is going to be cumulated into the Total Gross - Secondary Wage - /101.

Thanks and Regards,
