1. User-Defined Planning Layouts

Using the planning layout you specify what contents appear in the header, rows, and columns (elements) of your planning screens depending on the specific management requirements made by cost center planning.

The SAP system contains standard SAP planning layouts that satisfy most planning requirements. Only if this is not the case do you require your own layouts.

2. Create Planning Layouts for Cost Element Planning

To be able to plan for cost elements, you first need to define the planning layout. In the planning layout, you specify the format of the planning screens.

2.1. Purpose

In the standard SAP System, planning layouts are found only in client 000. To use them as models for user-defined planning layouts, they must be taken from client 000 and imported to your production client. Use the IMG General Controlling under the section Prepare  Production Startup -> Transport System Settings -> Transport Planning Settings -> Import Standard Planning Layouts.

2.2. Activity

1. Create planning layouts for cost element planning based on your requirements.
