Updated: October 8, 2012

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Click Project management and accounting > Setup > Indirect costs > Indirect cost component groups. In the Indirect cost component groups form, select an indirect cost component group, and then click Assign indirect cost components. In the Assigned indirect cost components form, select an indirect cost component, and then click Compounding rules >Cost.

Use this form to create rules for calculating indirect costs for an indirect cost component group. A compounding rule adjusts the value that is calculated for an indirect cost by applying a multiplier to the hourly rate of the indirect cost. The adjusted value of the indirect cost is added to project costs. You can also determine the sequence in which the cost compounding rules are applied.

NoteNote

If you are using Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack or Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, this form is available only if the Project Management and Accounting Add-in is installed.
