CK40N - Update for material with price control 'V'

i Experts,
When im running standard cost estimate in CK40N, say for material types semi finished. The components that is raw materials of the SFG is also updated with the price, meaning for a raw material with price control 'V' has a price of 10, after
releasing the cost estimate for the SFG, when i look into the material master of raw material, the price of 10 is also updated
in the standard price.
I am not sure why this is happening, i believe it should not happen. Because in the valuation variant, if i give the strategy as standard price, this price is easily picked up. And more over with price control 'V', i can change the standard price. Can anybody throw some light on this.
Best regards

Hi Rakesh,
Thanks for the information. But i do agree even during release there is no impact on the inventory. But in my cost variant, say in PPC1, if i give the strategy say 1. standard price 2. moving average price, during cost estimate run, its going to take the standard price for the material irrespective of the price derived automatically for moving average price. For eg in our case for raw material with price control 'V' after sce run if the standard price is 10 and moving average price is 14, as per strategy of PPC1 above its going to take 10 and not 14.
Is there any other way to avoid this. Please correct me if i had went wrong somewhere.
Best regards

  • Production costs for material with price control V

    Dear all,
    Can anyone pls tell me, how will the costing occur for a material produced in-house and having price control 'V' ? I am not able to see the target costs.
    Also kindly tell me the settings to be done in CO, like target cost version, valuation variant, costing variant, etc.
    Thank you,

    Rather than giving my own versions I have compiled here SAP inputs. Pl let me know if you require any clarifications:
    Costing variant has the following components:
    <b>Define Costing Types
    Define Valuation Variants
    Define Date Control
    Define Quantity Structure Control
    Define Transfer Strategy
    Define Reference Variants</b>
    <u>Costing type:</u>
    In the costing type, you define the purpose of a material cost estimate by specifying, for example, which field in the material master record the costing results can be transferred to:
    Update Cost Estimate
    Standard price Standard cost estimate (01)
    Tax-based price Inventory cost estimate
    Commercial price Inventory cost estimate
    Price other than std price Modified standard cost estimate or
    current cost estimate
    No update Any cost estimate
    Define Valuation Variants:
    Define Valuation Variants
    Here you create a valuation variant containing the parameters required for valuation of a cost estimate.
    You also specify which costing sheet should be used to calculate overhead.
    Valuation Strategies
    Material valuation
    Here you define the sequence in which the system searches for prices from the accounting view or costing view of the material master record to valuate materials. You can also access prices from purchasing info records and condition types.
    For material cost estimates, you also specify whether additive costs can be added to the selected price.
    With configurable/configured material components and with procurement alternatives, the sequence defined here is ignored if the strategy "price from purchasing info record" was selected, in which case that strategy is always executed first. For more information, refer to the SAP Library in the component Product Cost Planning under Raw Material Costing or Mixed Costing.
    Activity Types / Processes
    Here you define the sequence in which the system searches for prices in activity type planning or actual activity price calculation in Cost Center Accounting or Activity-Based Costing to valuate the utilized activity types and business processes.
    You also specify which plan/actual version is used.
    Here you define the sequence in which the system searches for prices in the purchasing info record. In purchasing, quota arrangements are used to create a mixed price for materials that are manufactured with external vendors with parts provided by the customer. You can specify whether the quota of the individual vendors that are entered in the source list for the material to be processed should be determined through the planned quota arrangement or the actual quota arrangement.
    External processing
    Here you define the sequence in which the system searches for prices in the purchasing info record or routing operation for valuation of the external activities.
    Strategy Sequence
    You define the individual valuation methods for the valuation variant as strategy sequences. For the valuation of the material components you define a strategy sequence that reads the fields of the material master record in a particular sequence such as:
    1. Planned price 1
    2. Standard price
    3. Moving price
    The first price that is not zero is used to valuate the material component.
    Target versions:
    Target cost versions  are used in the following ways:
    In variance calculation:
    To control which variance (total variance, production variances or planning variance) is calculated
    To valuate unplanned scrap( scrap variance)
    Unplanned scrap is valuated in the period-end closing activities when the variances are calculated. You can specify in a valuation variant for WIP and scrap which cost estimate you want to use to calculate the target costs for the valuation of unplanned scrap. You assign the valuation variant to target cost version 0 if you want to include it in the valuation of scrap.
    When you are using a cost object hierarchy with active distribution, you use the target cost version to control which cost estimate the system uses to calculate the target costs, which are used as the basis for determining equivalences for actual cost distribution.
    The actual costs collected at the level of the hierarchy are distributed across the orders in accordance with these equivalences. This distribution is proportional to the target costs for the cost element under which the actual costs are written. Actual costs for material costs are distributed in proportion to the target costs for the origin group, such as for the material, if you have entered an origin group in the costing view of the material master record and have set the indicator Material origin, for example.
    If no target costs were calculated under this cost element, enter a cost element group in the target cost version. The actual costs are distributed in proportion to the target costs for this cost element group. This cost element group should be complete. If costs were updated under a cost element that is not in this cost element group, no distribution is possible.
    You can calculate equivalences on the basis of SAP standard target cost versions 0, 1 and 3.
    The standard system supplies the following target cost versions:
    Target cost version 0 ( total variance)
    The amount of the total variance generates a posting in Financial Accounting during settlement.
    For this version, select actual costs as the control costs and standard cost estimate as the target costs.
    Target cost version 1 ( production variance)
    For this version you choose actual costs as the control costs and planned costs as the target costs.
    Target cost version 2( planning variance)
    With target cost version 2, the costs from the preliminary order cost estimate are interpreted as control costs.
    For this version, select planned costs as the control costs and current cost estimate as the target costs. You cannot calculate planning variances for the product cost collector.
    Target cost version 3 (production variance of the period)
    You compare the planned costs of the period calculated on the basis of an alternative material cost estimate (such as a modified standard cost estimate) with the actual costs of the period on the basis of the yield delivered to stock in the period.
    The base quantity for variance calculation is the yield.
    For this version, you choose the actual costs as the control costs and the alternative material cost estimate as the target costs. To determine the alternative material cost estimate, enter a costing variant and choose a costing version.
    The target cost version specifies which data is to be compared. The target cost version also specifies which variance variant is used and therefore which variance catagories are calculated. You can define a different target cost version for each controlling area

  • Cost Run should not be getting executed on Material with Price Control V

    Raw & Packing materials are with price control V in MM as company wants to keep them on moving average cost. Somehow finance users executed cost run on one such material and cost run was executed and the difference was posted in price difference. As far as I know, system shouldn't be allowing cost run on materials other than those having S as price control.
    Question is: How to ensure system sends error if cost run is attempted to be executed on materials with Price Control V?

    If you are executing cost run using CK40N, it releases the cost for all the materials i.e. both for the header and the components
    the components may be usually valuated at V. So, the std price update for these will be only for information purposes and it wont revaluate your inventory for sure... This cant post to price difference.... Price diff upon std cost release will apply only to those materials which have price control S
    However, if you dont want to release the cost for V items, you can specify them in the exclusion list... In Ck40N selection parameters you specify your plant/material, etc...  While specifying the materials to be costed in the multiple selection screen, , you can also specify the ones not to be. Then std cost wont be released in those cases

  • Moving average price calculation logic of material with Price Control "S"

    Dear Gurus,
    As you know that there is a Moving price and standard price icon in the material master.
    I want to understand the calculation logic of the moving average price of the materials having price control "S"
    How the system calculates the MAP for standard price materials? The receipt from the process order I suppose is valuated at the process order cost after settlement, but if the issue has hapened for the material does the system recalculate the issue price also?
    Below is the sample process order receipt and issue scenario:
    Receipt from process order 161000000223
    300 kg and GR at standard cost value is Rs 5892
    Issue to process order 162000000294
    250 kg and GI at standard cost value is Rs 4910.
    Thus the balance at period end is 50 kg and balance at standard cost value is Rs 982.
    Here in process order 161000000223 the actual cost is 10 Rs. Then how will the system calculate the MAP?
    Thanking You,
    Amit Dhanurdhari

    Try the following calculations,
    One of them will work depending upon your version and support pack
    Expected MAP calculation ( As with price control V)
    = ((Qty before transaction*MAP + Transaction Qty * transaction
    Price)) / quantity after transaction
    New Method ( when price control is S)
    = Old MAP + (Price Variance w.r.t Standard Price/Qty after transaction)

  • Split valuation - material with price control V

    I have created material with split valuation ,ie val category as Z (auto batch).. and i did gr. and in mm03 i have maintained the pr control as V .. and later po and gr .  when i checked in MM60 its showing the parent material and the child mat ie valu types/ batch materials are also in V... it suppost to have with S.. is there any customization need to have S price control for the child/ val type materials?? pls suggest

    Hi UJ ,
    Different price control are possible for different valuation types based on Valuation category , but this doesn't hold good for Valuation Category X- Auto Batch as there are no valutaion types linked to it in Config.
    Therefore system proposes the same price control as that of parent material incase of Valuation Category(X)- Auto Batch

  • Adding additional costs to Material with price control "V"

    Good Morning Gurus
    We want to add some additional cost to materials. How to do this ?
    These materials are valuated at MAP.
    Actually there are some delivery costs which were not inventorised correctly to the materials. The materials are undervaluated, we want to add this additional cost to the materials. We donot want to hit the price control account.
    Is there any other way ??

    You can alter the Costing variant and valuation variant according to your scenario. Check the costing variant in OKKN and valuation variant OKK4. You will find the indicator for additive cost there.

  • Actual Cost of Product with Price control "S"

    Dear Gurus,
    Is there any report available where we can know the Actual Costs of Materials with Price Control "S".
    In the material master field the actual cost in the "Moving Price Tab" of the material with Price Control "S" is available, but is there any report available for plant level?
    Thanks & Regards,
    Amit Dhanurdhari.

    Hi Amit,
    -- Under Standard Costing, you value your inventory at Standard Costs and any variances in Production Process will be settled to Price Difference Account. You will not be able to find out actual cost per unit. In Multi-level BOM scenario under Standard Costing (CO-PC), variances don't get rolled-up to the next level, only costs get rolled-up.
    -- Under Actual Costing - Material Ledger, You will be able to find out the Actual Cost per Unit. Variances get rolled-up to the next level.
    To explain difference between Standard Costing in CO-PC and Material Ledger briefly....
    You have given Price Indicator as "S" in the material master of "X" material (semi finisher or finished) and you are doing Standard Cost Estimate for arriving at Standard Cost per tonne. Let's say, the Standard Cost per tonne is Rs.1000/-
    Now, when you created production order for 10 tonnes and received output of 10 tonnes (GR). But the total cost incurred on that production order is Rs.1100/-. In this situation, actual cost per tonne is Rs.110.
    But, because you are following Standard Costing, When you post GR against this Production Order, inventory will be posted at Standard cost only, i.e., Rs.1000/-. and the balance of Rs.100 will be posted to Price Difference Account. (and parallally the variance of Rs.100/-) will flow to COPA.
    So, it is clear that, though, at Production Order level you can see the actual cost, at "material" level, you will not be able to see the actual cost per tonne.(as long as you are using only Product Costing and Standard Costing)
    Alternatively, if you maintain Price Indicator as "V", you will able to get the Actual Cost per tonne at material level, but there will be no scope for establishing standard cost and comparison with actual thereof.
    But, the same is possible if you are using Material Ledger (CO-ML). If Material Ledger is active, you will be maintaining "S" in the material master, still, the variances will be settled inventory and you will be able to get the actual cost per tonne. (bothe Standard cost estimate, actual cost per tonne will be possible).
    Pls revert back for further explanation

  • Can we release the standard price for a material whose Price control is "V"

    Hi experts,
    Could you please clarify my doubt that can we release the standard cost of a material whose price control is "V".
    Our user is trying to release the std price. But its not getting released. If the material is of ML relevant I could have checked in CKM3 for any actual data existancy. I am aware that if any actual data existing the price could not be released.
    But here this material belongs to a Non Material ledger relevant plant. So I cheked the stock overview and for any material documents if any. But this material has no stock.
    I m confused how to check the material's transactions with FI entries.
    Please help in this regard.

    HI Sarat
    1. You can release a std cost for material with V, but that wont serve any purpose.. The inventory valuation will happen at V alone
    Either the material should have a BOM or Routing to release the std cost and MRP view shall have Proc Type as E / X
    You can have special proc in costing view as 20 and then execute CK11N for the material....
    Some price must be there in material master which will get released as std cost (based on your valuation variant)
    2. You can check material transaction using MB51

  • Is it required to cost the materials with Price control "V" ?

    Dear All,
    Would like to know if we have to consider the items with Price control "V" during the cost run in CK40N..?
    Since the system automatically updates the price of the item for price control "V", do we also require to update through cost run?
    Please help me understand.
    Best regards,

    Materials with price control "V" is dynamically updated with value whenever there is a receipts.  The system will calculate average rate by dividing total value by total stock.  Hence, cost the materials for this price control is not relevant.  It is recommended to have price control "V" for all externally procured materials.
