Hi Sivaram,

Overheads can be calcualted either % basis or Qty basis.

The Quantity based overheads are not on the basis of OUT PUT Quanntity but it is on the basis of Input quantity.

SAP does not provide Qty based Overheads on the basis of OUT PUT Qty.

In configuration u need to make the settings for Qty based OHs and in the Material Master in costing view u need to select the Material origin indicator

Hope this will solve your problem. If you need still any clarification in this regard, you can approach me

Please award suitable points

Overhead rates can be created either as percentage or Quantity-Based. This can be seen in the SPRO configuration under costing sheet: components. Choose the quantity based Overhead Rates under the prouduct costing. Then apply these rates in the costing sheet.

Hi ,

While specifying the Over head key in the cost sheet, you can find out the " Credit Key" . In this credit key , assign the cost center details.

Now the system while calculating the over head charges , it posts the debit values to production order and credit values to "Cost Center".

When the actual values are posted to the cost center , there will be unabsorbed or overabsorbed amounts in the cost center values.

If it helps , please assign points as way of thanks
