How to Create Activity type-KL01

Activity types are activities provided by a cost center. They are measured in units of time or quantity. Activity quantities are valued using a price. For e.g. Activity types are used to allocate machine cost from Machine cost center to the production orders.
A product is being produced in a cost center called as Labour cost center. The activity provided by the cost center to the product is labour hours. The cost center costs will be allocated using activity type to the product. Planned and actual hours are recorded as activity quantities. The quantity i.e. labour hours multiplied by the price will be allocated to the production order. A secondary cost element of type 43 is attached to the activity type.
