Asset allocation by periods

Hi All. I have the following request for a customer. They define an asset and define the cost plan for that asset on, say, 3 years. The asset will be used (and paid) by 2 or more projects that can be even overlapped in time.

So, for example, they have Project 1 starting on January, 1st and ending on June 30th. Project 2 starts on April, 1st and ends December 31st. The need is to allocate the cost of the asset at 100% to project 1 from January to April, at 60% to project 1 and 40% to project 2 from April and June, and 100% to project 2 from July to December.

By using Hierarchies, it seems it's not possible to define Allocation % by period, so I wandoer if either I'm missing something or if someone else already found this problema nd would like to share the solution.

Thanks in advance
