Can we calculate overheads on the basis of quantity produced.
Standard SAP functionality of quantity based overheads is to take input qty of materials and calculate the said overheads by taking the rate maintained in the costing sheet.
My clients requirement is to calculate it on the basis of quantity produced.
Is there any work around for this.
Thanks & Regards,
Its possible... There are 2 options, one is standard and the other one is work around
1. Standard Option - is to use Template allocation.... I find this a bit complex and not user friendly... But dont go by my opinion, you shoulld try it for yourself
2. Work around - This is what I used....
a. Create one activity type and attach it to your work center...
b. The activity qty of the this act type to be same as the Base Qty in Routing... i.e. if base qty in routing is 1000, the activity qty should also be 1000
c. Set up the work center formula in such a way that the act qty is completely variable.... i.e. If you confirm 500 qty in Prod order for the header material, same 500 qty would be proposed for this act type... Dont change this activity qty during confirmations
Once the act qty is confirmed, you can just calculate activity price for this act type, which will be based on Qty Produced....This means, you dont even need to calculate and maintain the overhead rates in the system
