Costing and charge-backs
BMC Asset Management uses the Cost module to track costs associated with CIs.
This integration uses the common cost creation dialog box that is provided by the Cost module. The fields on CI user interface forms integrate with BMC Asset Management forms to show cost data related with a CI.
BMC Asset Management also uses the charge back functionality in the Cost module. Charge backs are roll ups of the costs that have been incurred over a period and involved in the various cost centers in a company. The charge back component of the Cost module generates charge back entries, enables the financial manager to make appropriate adjustments to the costs, and generates invoices to be sent to the individual cost centers.
