depreciation calculation by unit of production method

Postby hiddendragon » Mon Jun 30, 2014 10:19 pm

Hello Everyone,

since SAP go live , our SAP system use calcuation depreciation by straight line method in all asset class

but now we would like to change asset class "Machine" calculate depreciation by unit of production method .

we want all asset in asset class "Machine" have their own depreciation also.

such as Machine A can produce 10,000 unit in life time , 2014 period 1 produce 500 unit , 2014 period 2 produce 200 unit ,so each period have different depreciaiton value

Machine B can produce 300 unit in life time , 2014 period 1 produce 22 unit , 2014 period 2 produce 14 unit , so each period have different depreciation value

so each asset number should their own depreciation value.

I read some SAP document about unit of production calculation method such as http://help.sap.com/saphelp_46c/helpdat ... ontent.htm

and other sources.

it's look like that SAP use depreciation key ,and transaction code AO25 ( to specify production unit in each period)

so if we have 10,000 asset number that want to use calculate depreciaiton by unit of production method.

do we have to configure 10,000 depreciation key and then use transaction code AO25 to specify production in each period ?

do we have better solution to calculate depreciation by unit of production ? If possible we do not want to configure 10,000 depreciation key.

Thank you in advance
