Integrated planning for Internal Orders with Cost Centers or Business Processes
In integrated planning for internal orders, cost centers or business processes, you can integrate cost element and activity input planning for an internal order with cost center or business process planning. You can do this in a plan version. All the planned business allocations on the internal order (also repostings, assessments and so on) are then automatically updated on the sender/receiver cost center, or on the sender/receiver business process.
You can only use integrated planning for Internal Orders with Cost Center Accounting or Activity Based Costing, if the internal order already exists at the time of cost center or business process planning. You cannot lock the plan version. You can only plan locally for internal orders that are not plan-integrated. The same applies to internal orders that did not exist when you planned the cost centers or business process. You can also manually plan costs and activities on receiver cost centers or business processes, when required.
For more information, see:
Cost center two plans to take 2000 production hours from cost center one, using an internal order. The planning of activities on the cost center and internal order can be integrated, because the internal order already exists in the system, and the same time horizon is planned. If integrated planning is active, the scheduled activity for the order is updated on cost center one. The settlement of the internal order in the plan is updated on cost center two (the receiving cost center).
Cost center three plans to take 700 production hours from cost center one. No internal order exists at the time of cost center planning. The internal order is created later and so cannot be integrated into planning. You need to execute cost center planning manually, and independently from order planning.
Integrated Planning of Internal Orders with Profit centers, and the Extended General Ledger
If you activate integrated planning with Profit Center Accounting and the Extended General Ledger, the system transfers planning data for internal orders and Cost Center Accounting to Profit Center Accounting and the Extended General Ledger.
You need to activate the Integrated Planning indicator in the version. This ensures that the system makes the planning data for internal orders available to other applications in the SAP system.
