Actual Labor Costing (ALC)

Tracking and recording true actual labor cost is a daunting task faced by companies that must comply with US federal and local regulatory requirements. Dassian ALC augments SAP® functionality, recording an "Actual" rate on the final cost objective. This rate can include both base labor and associated fringes on separate elements of cost.

Dassian ALC installs into your SAP landscape like any other SAP functionality, without complicated, error-prone spreadsheets or interfaces to an external system. ALC lets you capture, calculate, and post all elements of labor over the actual hours worked on the final cost objective.

The actual labor cost and original work date of the labor charge are maintained on the end cost objective – even after retroactive payroll changes or off-cycle payroll adjustments. The ALC work date field is available in billing and other sub-processes. This highly-configurable functionality provides you with the solution to handle actual labor across varying contractual requirements.
