Project Description

Today we are able to calculate a Gross Profit on customer level but the next level would be to have the possibility to calculate an Nett Profit/EBIT marge on customer level. In order to be able to do this we should know which part of our Contribution Marge2 (indirect costs) should be allocated to the specific customer
