Maintain Indirect Activity Allocation

In this IMG activity you determine rules for indirect activity allocation in the form of cycles.

In indirect activity allocation you define the use of sender activities (cost center/activity type) from the point of view of the activity receiver by means of tracing factors.

You define tracing factors here as in assessment or distribution.


To create a cycle for indirect activity allocation:

1. Determine a name for the cycle.
2. Determine a time as of which the cycle will be valid.
3. Maintain the header data for the cycle:
a) An explanatory text
b) The time to which the cycle will be valid
c) Whether to scale negative tracing factors
4. Define cycle segments in which you store the following information:
a) A name and a text for each segment
b) Sender values
c) Tracing factor
d) Selection criteria (sender and receiver objects)
e) If necessary, attributes of business process(es)
5. Save the cycle.
