The use of template allocations is one method to assign overhead costs. This method is unique for several reasons:

possible receiver objects of the template allocation in actual can be:

In order to describe the allocation quantities in actual, you can draw upon actual quantities updated in the SAP System (such as the Logistic Information System or the confirmed quantities entered in the system).


For example, the number of purchase orders per sales orders serves as the process driver of the procurement process for a sales order processor. You can configure the Logistics Information System so that it updates the appropriate key figure for this sales order for each procurement transaction related to the order.

Enter the receiver object(s) in the entry screen for template allocation to determine the overhead costs. When you carry out the allocation, the system does the following:

The result is a list of receiver and sender objects of the activity quantities and relevant costs (quantity*price). The price is calculated based on the valuation variant, which is tied to the receiver cost object for the simultaneous costing using the costing variant. If the receiving cost object is not tied with a costing variant for the simultaneous costing, then the planned price for the period is used for the valuation.
