Planning Process Input
When you plan the input of business processes, you can enter the records from activities or other processes, as well as portions of fixed and variable primary cost and quantities by using the corresponding cost elements.
You can plan:
Activity input (Secondary Costs)
Process input (Secondary Costs)
The output planning of the sender must be complete for the activity and process inputs
Before you start manual planning, choose a suitable planner profile. Standard planner profiles SAPABC, SAPALL, SAP101, and SAP102 include planning layouts relevant to business process planning. You can define more planning layouts and store them, for example, in a planner profile that you have defined yourself.
For more information, see: Standard Planning Layouts; to create planner profiles in the Implementation Guide (IMG) for Activity-Based Costing under Planning ® Manual planning ® Maintain User Defined Planner Profiles.
Cost elements: you can plan fixed and variable costs, as well as fixed and variable plan quantities. Use 1-D01 for the planning layout.
Activity input (from cost centers/activity types): you can plan fixed and variable quantities. For the planning layout, use 1-D02.
Process input (from another business process): you can plan fixed and variable quantities. For the planning layout, use 1-D02P.
