Activity-dependent or activity independent planning of both primary and secondary costs, which occur as a result of activity input.


The various types of planning are only possible if the relevant business transactions are permitted.


These planning types are not mutually exclusive, but you can also use them in a combination. Depending on the information status, you use one or more of the planning types listed below. This means that for certain parts of an internal order, you can use unit costing or cost element planning, while roughly estimating the costs of the other parts of the order using overall planning.

Cost/revenue element and activity input planning

You use these types of planning when you have detailed information on costs. Each planning type is carried out for one year and covers cost-element-related planning of primary costs, revenues and activity inputs.

If more than one currency is permitted within your controlling area, the system will propose a value date each time you use cost element planning. You can overwrite this date if required.
