Definition – groups of cost centers in a tree structure within a controlling area that represent specific areas of cost incurrence from a Controlling perspective.
A cost center hierarchy comprises all cost centers for a given period and therefore represents the whole enterprise. This hierarchy is known as the standard hierarchy.
Cost Center hierarchies are typically defined before creating cost centers.
Usually considered as configuration objects, high volume and complexity in nesting may call for automated load methods. Here’s one way of automating creation (load) of CCH into SAP.
Define Input/Load File Structure
Since CCH is defined at CO. Area level, a “header” line is used to create CCH per Co. Area. This way, the same process/files can be reused for loading standard and alternate hierarchies under same/different controlling areas.
