 German term or phrase: im Rahmen der Netzplankalkulation anhand der Kalkulationsvariante General question about the construction of this sentence: "Die Plankosten werden im Rahmen der Netzplankalkulation anhand der Kalkulationsvariante im Netzplankopf auf Basis der geplanten Menge und des Bedarfstermins der Komponente bestimmt." I find the construction of this sentence confusing. I've translated it as "The planned costs are calculated on the basis of the planned quantity and requirements date of the component within the network costing based on the costing variant in the network header". I just need to know if I have constructed the EN correctly, as is intended from the DE.

 English translation:Within the framework of the network costing, using the... Explanation:I think two introductory clauses here would separate the various elements of the sentence, leaving the meaning clear. The sentence could read: "Within the framework of the network costing, using the costing variant in the network header, the planned costs are calculated on the basis of the planned quantity and requirements date of the component."

Explanation:
The plan's costs are determined within the framework of network calculation according to the calculation variable contained within the network head, as based on both the envisaged [planned] amount and the component's required date.
