The information on the transferred quantity and the sender is only transferred to the receiver in a periodic settlement (PER distribution rule). This enables the system to include activities in price determination, that were provided to orders, and then settled to cost centers. The flow of activity between the cost centers is shown in the document rows with value type 09.

Settlement of an order to a cost center or business process must be made once before price determination, as the price determination would otherwise not recognize the activity flow from CCtr 1/REP to CCtr 2.

Splitting

  1. Actual costs are split within Cost Center Accounting

 

Price Determination

In Cost Center Accounting, when the system determines actual prices, it determines the actual prices for cost centers / activity types. At the same time, it revaluates all of the allocations made from a cost center / activity type to a cost center in Cost Center Accounting with the difference to the plan price. The system revaluates all of the allocations that were posted using value type 09.

The price for two repair hours is, for example, not 5.00 USD, but 6.00 USD.

  1. The cost center / activity type is credited with another 1.00 USD during price determination.
  2. The cost center is debited with 1.00 USD.
    To post between cost centers, you need the KSII business transaction. Initially, the order is not included during price determination.

Order Revaluation

  1. During order relaluation, the cost center / activity type is credited with the difference to the plan price (1.00 USD).
  2. The order is debited with the difference to the plan price (USD 1.00).
    The system does this by making a value type 04 posting (actual). It does this, by searching for all postings to the order that have value type 04 in the COSS table, and whose partner object PAROB is a cost center / activity type, or a business process. The system only revaluates these partner objects.

If there is a chain of orders that were settled one after the other, only the first order is revaluated.

This means that

Therefore, you need to resettle the order, also after the revaluation.

 

Second Settlement

After revaluation, the order balance is not zero, but 1.00 USD. Therefore, you need to settle the order again.

  1. The order is settled to the cost center
    The order is credited with USD 1.
  2. The cost center is debited with +1 USD.
  3. However, as the cost centers were already revaluated during price determination, the system makes an offsetting entry which credits the cost center by 1.00 USD, and debits the cost center / activity type by 1.00 USD.
    The postings on the cost center / activity type and the cost center each balance out to zero.

The order revaluation has had no effect on the cost centers / activity types, but the effect can be seen on the order itself.

Postings (value type 09) that transfer the information on the sender to the receiver take place at the same time as the first settlement, but using transaction RKLN.
