Kim is in charge of the annual headcount planning for her entire company. She works closely with Finance and division managers to estimate the cost of each position. To make the process simpler, Kim and Finance have created cost groups for similar types of positions.
As planners are filling in their plans, she gets to see each new position (location, title, etc.) and decide how to apply the cost groups to the new positions. She goes to one central queue where all new positions from all plans are automatically added.
If she wants to edit a position's cost manually anytime, she can also go into the plan, find the position, and manually override the position's cost. She can override any part of the total cost, whether that is base salary, bonus, or medical benefit.
