 Estimation of Costs


Estimated costs can be entered in the following ways:

  • As an overall total on the header data screen

  • Divided into value categories in the cost overview

Example Example

The cost elements 692000 and 693000 are grouped under value category "Internal activities".

End of the example.


To enter the estimated costs broken down into the individual value categories, you must have grouped the cost elements for these value categories in the Customizing for the Project System.


You can only specify estimated costs for the order until the order is released.

In contrast to planned and actual costs, estimated costs are not updated in the Plant Maintenance Information System (PM-IS).


After the estimated costs have been entered, the system sets the the status Costs estimated for the order.
