An overhead determines the conditions under which overhead is applied to an object, and the level of overhead to be applied.
In this step you define quantity-based overhead, such as $100 per piece. In addition, you can define percentage overhead (such as 25% in controlling area 0001).
You must assign a condition to each overhead. Using this condition, the SAP System can access the relevant condition fields in the appropriate condition tables.
Both plan and actual overhead can be calculated. The overhead type distinguishes betwenn plan and actual overhead.
The standard SAP System contains overhead with the following dependencies:
To define order-dependent overhead, you create an overhead key and enter this key in the order.
To define product-dependent overhead, create an overhead key and link this key to an overhead group. This group is then entered in the costing view of the material master record.
To define a quantity-based overhead, proceed as follows:
To check the overhead from the costing sheet, choose "Goto -> Quantity-based overhead".
To calculate quantity-dependent overhead, the units of measure must be updated in CO.
You have two options:
