Specifies which of the existing prices is to be used for activity allocation.

In activity allocation the costs are determined by valuating the activity quantity with a price. These prices can be either calculated iteratively through price calculation or entered manually by the user. The prices are stored in the actual and in the plan for business processes and for the activity type of a cost center.

You can choose from the following strategies:

  • 1: Plan price for the period

  • 2: Plan price as an average across all fiscal year periods

  • 3: Plan price as the average of the remainder periods of the fiscal year

  • 4: Actual price of the prior period

  • 5: The most recent prior actual price

    If the system does not find an actual price for the current period,

    searches for an actual price in the prior periods of the current

    fiscal year.

  • 6: The most recent plan price

    If no plan price is found for the current period, the system

    searches for a plan price in prior periods, possibly across more

    than one fiscal year.

  • 7: Manual actual price

    This strategy requires a manually entered price, which can then be

    used for allocation.
