When rolling up Budgets and Actuals – both Units and Amounts – it will be necessary to allow multiple roll ups per Cost Code.

• Throughout the industry it is standard practice for Labor to be broken into multiple Cost Types, including Regular Time, Overtime, Premium Time and at least one Burden account.  All of these accounts need to be capable of being rolled up into one Labor Account for Advanced Forecasting at LOD 8.  It is not feasible to forecast each of the individual Cost Types associated with Labor at LOD 9.  In addition to rolling up the Amounts, it is also necessary to roll up the homogeneous units into a consolidated hour total.

• Equipment is also frequently broken into more than one Equipment Cost Type, such as Owned Equipment and Rented Equipment. Equipment and Labor frequently exist on the same Cost Code together.

• In addition to Labor and Equipment there are multiple Cost Types assigned to track Miscellaneous Materials and Consumables. 

All three of these major Cost Types typically exist on any given Cost Code.  When determining the specifications for rolling Budgeted and Actual Cost and Units up at LOD 8 it will be necessary to allow multiple rollups within the same Cost Code.
