In this IMG activity you can maintain automatic CO assignments for a G/L account with the corresponding cost type. Please not that you should only make real CO assignments. All additional assigned CO assignments should only be used for statistical purposes.
If you want to assign certain costs (e.g. wait time costs) to a certain cost center, you can control this by assigning the corresponding cost type to the required cost center.
