Include secondary costs in KSII calculation

Former Member

Hhi All,

I have a situation where there are two activities on one cost centre:

  1. THCONS - Estimated cost for theatre consumables
  2. THCONSC - Accurate cost for theatre consumables

THCNSC is an accurate cost per procedure and once posted does not get revalued at month end.

THCNS is an estimated cost per procedure and is revalued via the actual costs posted to the cost centre under the cost element group A_CONS

THCNSC is posted using the secondary cost element THTRCNSC.  I would like to include the cost element THTRCNSC in the calculation of the price for the activity type THCNS and have added it to the cost element group A_CONS, however, KSII seems to ignore the values posted under secondary cost elements when calculating the prices.

Ultimately I would like the cost centre postings to be as follows:

So that the revaluation of actual price for activity THCNS takes in to account the value on the cost element THTRCNSC.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated

regards

Phil

Hi,

In my understanding you should use cost elements with category 43 to plan your activity prices per activity type/cost center (transaction KP26).  So when you calculate actual activity prices, it is not logical to add your planned price. After you calculate actual activity price, you will revaluate your planned activity.

Thanks Phil for the update.

Cost Element Category 43 is for Internal Activity Allocation and this is primarily to link your activity type master data.Also secondary cost element you need to plan but I dont think you can do cost planning for secondary cost element category 43 so that answers why system does not consider this.

Hi Phil,

What are those kind of secondary cost elements that you are using in your cost element group.

Hope you have done the cost planning for your secondary cost element.

Thanks & Regards

Hi Subhasish,

The secondary cost elements are of type 43, Activity allocation.  The cost element group also contains the primary cost element 25101 - Consumables, but only the primary costs are being taken into consideration in the calculation of actual activity price for THCNS .

I have planned values in KP26 for both activity types, but it is not possible to plan quantities accurately.

thanks and regards
