COPA Plans - Cost Element in Costing based COPA

Former Member

Dear All,

I am having an issue with COPA plans.

We are tracking the indirect and direct expenses in COPA using cost element/value field wise.

One value field would have data posted to two secondary cost elements, one for direct costs and another for indirect costs.

When we are planning expenses we are facing a issue where we cannot define a layout with the cost element and value field to-gether.

Pls advise of a way to handle this issue

Hi, In costing based COPA, it is not possible to plan for cost element in KEPM. Usually, the expenses shall be captured in Cost Centers and then through plan allocation in copa, the data is pushed to copa on some equitable basis, say the plan revenue. Let me revert back after seeing your response since business reason behind your requirement is not clear. Trust this helps much! Cheers!
