Handlungsbedarfe aus der Kriterienklasse “Running Costs“ wurden prioritär behandelt
Having trouble rendering this
Thanks for all suggestions
Explanation: ... this means something like:
Priority was given to need for action in connection with criteria class „running costs“.
You have different sets of evaluation criteria (called classes) for identifying need for action. These evaluation criteria refer to different areas of your business like „fixed costs“, „machinery and equipment“ and so on. What they’ve done in your sentence is to give priority to one specific set of criteria („running costs“) in order to prioritize action.

Explanation: given to those commercial requirements/ resource needs/ orders/ requisitions/ (perhaps your previously-used term that fits the context better) coming under the heading of 'Running Costs'/ in the 'Running Costs' category. 'Allocated' might be better than 'given' if this text has more of an accounting emphasis.
