About Uploading Cost Type Records

Information about cost type records.

The following process is used when uploading cost type records:

  • If the cost type does not exist in JCCH (JC Cost Header), it will be added.

  • If the phase/cost type exists in JCCH, and both the import and JCCH units of measure match, the import units will be added to the existing Original Units.

  • If the units of measure do not match, and detail exists in JCCD (JC Cost Detail) for the phase/cost type other than 'OE' (original estimate), original units will not be updated with the import units.

If no JCCD records exist that meet the above criteria, the import unit of measure will be used, and the import units will become the original units.
