Planning Costs with Unit Costing for General Cost Objects with Cumulative Time Base
The costs for general cost objects with a cumulative time base are planned with the unit costing tool. This tool uses unit costing. You can include overhead costs in the cost estimate using process cost planing or overhead allocation.
Planning Costs with the Planner Profile for General Cost Objects with Periodic Time Base
Costs for general cost objects with a periodic time base are planned with the planner profile.
You cannot plan overhead for general cost objects that have a periodic time base.
However, it is still possible to distribute overhead costs to different general cost objects that have a periodic time base by using statistical key figures. The statistical key figures then serve as equivalences.
