 Overhead Groups Locate this document in the navigation structure

You can make the calculation of overheads dependent on the material to be produced by specifying an overhead group. The system determines via the overhead group and the costing sheet the percentage used to calculate the overhead costs of the order.

If you want the calculation of overheads to depend on which material is being produced, you should note the following:

  • In the material master record of the material to be produced, you must have maintained an overhead group which refers to an overhead key.

  • The costing sheet valid for the order must refer to the above-mentioned overhead key.

You can find more information on overhead surcharges online in the guide to Organizational Elements Internal Orders , as well as under the menu option "Overhead surcharges" in the Customizing menu of product cost accounting.
