﻿ Define Costing Sheets (Product Cost Controlling)

Define Costing Sheets

In this step you define a costing sheet .

The costing sheet integrates all elements of overhead costing. It consists of the following rows that are processed during the calculation:

• Base rows
Base rows contain the bases of the overhead calculation: the cost elements and origins for which overheads are to be calculated.
You can take the calculation bases directly from the costing sheet and then maintain them as necessary, or define them separately in the step Define calculation base.
You define the overhead rows by assigning overhead to them. An overhead row references one or more base rows or totals rows. The amount contained in these rows, along with the percentage rate calculated using the overhead rates, delivers the overhead amount.
You can take the overheads directly from the costing sheet and then maintain them as necessary, or define them separately in the steps Define percentage overhead or Define quantity-based overhead.
The overhead row contains a credit key that defines which object (cost center or order) is credited during the overhead calculation.
You can either take the credit keys directly from the costing sheet and then maintain them as necessary, or define them separately in the step Define credit.
• Totals Rows
No calculation bases or overheads are assigned to the totals rows. They are used only to form subtotals or end totals.

Prerequisite

Activities

1. Check whether the delivered costing sheets meet your requirements.
If necessary, change the standard costing sheets to meet your requirements, or define your own sheets.
2. If you want to create a costing sheet, you have the following possibilities in the "Change Costing Sheet: Overview" screen:
a) If you want to copy an existing sheet, select the sheet you want to copy and choose "Copy as...".
b) If you want to create a new sheet, choose "New entries".
3. Enter a sheet abbreviation and a name, and choose "Enter". The new costing sheet appears in the overview.
4. To define the sheet, proceed as follows:
a) Select the sheet you want and choose "Costing sheet rows".
b) Define a base row.
c) Define a calculation base .
d) Define an overhead row .
f) Define a credit.
g) Define a totals row.
h) Then save the costing sheet after maintenance is completed.

Further notes

In Cost Object Controlling with sales-order-related production, the costing sheet for the sales order item is proposed through the requirements class. This costing sheet can be transferred to the assigned production orders if the Copy costing sheet indicator in the requirements class is set.

For sales-order-related costing with product costing, note that:

• The costing sheet is passed from the sales order to the subordinate materials if the Pass on costing sheet of sales order indicator in the costing type is set
• Overhead for materials from collective requirements is calculated using the costing sheet in the valuation variant
