I currently workin on the ETBMP 2018 on the related R12 configuration exercise. I am almost complete with the task, but I am stuck on the last step: Allocation of Other Cost Pools to IT Resource Towers. My Sankey allocation diagram looks like this (also refer to https://internaltraining1.apptio.com/#TBMStudio:stg:student02.com%253ADRU_FOCHLER):

 

In the Advanced CTF R12 Configuration Student Guide v1.2 06.25  on page 34  it looks slightly different as the cost of the Other Cost Pools are slightly lower (only $4,264,717 instead of $4,333,476 as shown in my model).

I further noticed that on page 27 of the Advanced CTF R12 Configuration Student Guide v1.2 06.25  the cost of the Other Cost Pools are identical to the cost in my model ($4,333,476).

I am afraid my understanding of the allocations concept is not yet sufficient. I would kindly appreciate your adivce and answers to the following questions:

 

1. How can it be explained that the cost for Other Cost Pools differ between page 27 and page 34 of the Advanced CTF R12 Configuration Student Guide v1.2 06.25?

 

2. What adjustments are requiredin my model to match the desired outcome shown on page 34 of the Advanced CTF R12 Configuration Student Guide v1.2 06.25?

 

Your support is much appreciated.

 

Cheers,

Klaus
