COPA Assessment Cycle

Updated Jun 20, 2018

We have some costs like salaries,travel & tour ,Admin and Sales & Marketing Costs etc .

As you all know that the above said costs are posted to relevant cost centers and now we want to allocate the costs to COPA through assessment as we don't have the option of Distribution in COPA.

I need some help on the following points:

1.While defining the CYCLE for COPA ,in the header screen of Cycle,there is a field to enter TF Basis (i.e. 1 -Costing Based

and 2- Account based) .I have selected 2 (account based) and allocated the costs.When we allocate the  costs by account based,then we can't see the these allocated costs in the Costing based COPA Reports.

Is there any option for allocation of costs in both the types of COPA ,so that we can get the costs in both the types of COPA Reports.

    Let say you have an asset called as ASSET UNDER CONSTRUCTION(AUC) which could take long time to become real ASSET and company had to bear the costs until it become real ASSET.. now, periodically management need to asses the costs for this AUC.. fo this assessment cycle will be used.. so Assessment is a type of instrument to make decision on periodic allocation by management.

    SAP EASY ACCESS MENU -> Accounting -> Controlling -> Cost center accounting -> Period End Closing -> Single Functions -> Allocations -> Assessment

    click Extras->Cycles->create in top row-options to create a cycle

    now create cycle run group by clicking on 'CYCLE RUN GROUP'

    Now clickon 'Attach Segment' to attach the cost centers to this assessment!
