Confuguarable Material Cost Estimate

Hi All.,
It is an urgent requirement.......
My client having both configuarable & non configuarable materials.....
with regarding to the configuarable material cost estimate i don't have good grip on this.
Can anybody please share some guidlines for how to create the cost estimate.....
Thanks one and all.,

Configurable materials can only have a cost estimate when there is a sales order bom to define the build.
We use configurable material and the cost estimate is configured in the same manner as standard material (Costing variant,costing dates, transfer control, etc. but some of the details differ), but it is only Saved within a Sales order. You can use CU50 for a trial cost - the configuration will have to be created in CU50 before it will cost.
When costing configurable materials in sales orders or for sales orders the valuation variant is different from standard cost variant in these points:
1 - The costing type is different. 18 - Sales order costing vs. 01 - Standard cost est. (mat.)
The Costing type for Sales order does not allow updating of the standard price in the Mat Mstr
The Costing type for Sales order also controls the use of Labor overhead for the costing variant.
2 - Valuation Variant can be different - Valuation for Prod Costing specifies the rules to build a cost estimate. For Sales order, you may want it to use ONLY the standard price for a material/component, and NOT build a cost estimate.
3 - Date control - The default “from” date for the Config Mat in a Sales order is “Today” while for product costing it is “first of next month”
Our Prod Cost Est. is valid until the end of the Fiscal year when a new cost estimate is released. Our Config Material on a Sales order is valid until the end of time.
I cannot explain “why” we chose one over the other, most of the decisions were made before I arrived. But the Costing Type Difference is very important to us, because there is no chance that the cost estimate will interfere with setting of standards and it allows “searching” for a Sales Order Cost estimate.
You have to analyze how each part of the costing variant could impact the business and decide how to set it. If circumstances change, you can review the settings later. (I fully intend to review some of ours directly after this conversation.)
Sales Order Costing Variants are on OKY9 while product costing is at OKKN
Sales Order Costing Variants are assigned under SD “Maintain Requirements Classes for Costing/Account Assignment (table T459K)
Hope this helps.

  • Report for Material Cost Estimate

    Hi Everyone,
    Is there any way that I could download a report from the SAP showing all the material cost estimates? Hope someone could help me. When I try using CK11n, there is no tab there for report downloads and it only shows one material.
    Thank you in advance

    Dear Jahziel,
    In standard SAP the following reports are available:
    T Code : CK84_99 : COST_ELEMENT - Cost Elements
                 CK80_99 - Cost Components
                 CK84_99 - Itemization
    These reports will provide you the information at individual material level.

  • Error reading material cost estimate for sales order (KE292)

    Dear All,
    I have an issue with billing. we are posting july month transactions, the material cost is maintained through MR21. When releasing billing document for accounting we are getting error message like"Error reading the material cost estimate for sales order "11"
    Message no. KE292
    In Profitability Analysis (CO-PA), the system tried to valuate item 000010 of sales order 11 by reading the corresponding product cost estimate.
    However, no product cost estimate could be found for this sales order item.
    The system accessed product costing for product AMLFP011011XX00P using costing key YB3 as defined in the
    CO-PA Customizing settings.
    System Response
    The system cannot process the document any further.
    Check your Customizing settings."
    We cross checked with other client as a current date and we ran cost estimate through CK40N with same material. and we posted entries. Here it is working fine. but in above process it is not working. Can you pls guide me where i missed.

    When the Costing Key is assigned to the material types in the COPA customizing, then system expects Cost estimation when billing is released to Accounts.
    If you dont run cost estimation but update the material master through MR21, system will not accept as in the Costing key configuration you must have selected the Current Standard price field for the valuation.
    Hence, try to run cost estimation and then do releasing.
    Thanks & Regards

  • Error while creating material cost estimate

    Hello All
    I am creating material cost estimate of FG whose components are SF & ROH-2. While creating cost estimate system gives an error message which states: :
    *No cost element segment exists for 40103110 on 01.09.2009
    Message no. CK048
    The consumption account found by automatic account determination for material STD-PRICE-SF does not exist for the date 01.09.2009 specified.
    Check the cost element segment's validity period
    Check cost element
    Or, if you have authorization, create a cost element which did not exist previously.
    Create primary cost element*
    Please provide your valuable inputs regarding this error message. Looking forward to your inputs & feedback.

    Dear Jitendra,
    Its Seem primary cost element you mentioned is not defined for 09 period.For this go to KA06,gIve that cost element number and the Valid from  date as 01.09.2009 and valid to date as 30.09.2009, press enter it will take u inside the T.C,feed the relevant data and save.
    Now again take the costing run.This time system should not throw the error.

  • Re: create material cost estimate with ck11n without

    hi gurus,
    i need to do create material cost estimate with ck11n without cost result but before i need to check the BOM with material component 11111, and also instruct me how to correct maintain BOM list to get the standard cost
    if anybody do the same scenoria giveme your golden inputs
    thanks in advance,

    As note 351835 explains, calculation needs an inforecord to calculate prices from purchasing. Prices from outline agreements are generally not taken into account. According to note 499699, the system may consider entries in the source but it will ignore entered agreements (before this correction, any source list entries with agreement were ignored).
    Prices from agreements could only be considered either via a modification or by using the user exit for material valuation (COPCP005).
    This unfortuntely is a restriction resulting as a side-effect from note 499699. As soon as an agreement is entered in the source list, the fixed indicator will not be considered anymore.
    You therefore have two options to overcome this.
    1) You create a second source list entry without an agreement; then the fix indicator will be reflected; report Z_CREATE_EORD from note  409960 could be used to do this automatically
    2) You are using user-exit EXIT_SAPLMEQR_001 in order to 'overrule'   the standard search for source of supply (enhancement LMEQR001)

  • Valuation with material cost estimate: error with product

    Hi Experts,
    Message no. KE350, Valuation with material cost estimate: error with product "2286940000". Please suggest me to resolve this issue.
    Points will be provided for good solution.

    Hi Jaya
    This means that your customization is wrong then...
    In KE4J or KEPC you have assigned costing keys to your material types or some other combination... You should have done this config in a way that costing key is not called  for in the case of non valuated materials...
    In Ke40 you have defined costing key where in you have specified "Issue error msg if no cost estimate found".. This costing key is assigned in KE4J or KEPC in a way that it is getting called even in case of non valuated materials...
    Do you have a separate mat type for non valuated material? If yes, remove this mat type from KE4J/KEPC..
    If you dont have separate mat type i.e. in the same mat type if you have both valuated and non valuated, then you have a problem.. You would get stuck in that case

  • Valuation using material cost estimate

    Ciao a tutti,
    We have create a material cost
    estimate without standard structure(unit costing) not FOR ALL MATERIALS, but only for ONE
    VARIANT of generic material (retail solution) (because the other variant have the same price, and because we have to reproduced 5000 BOM in unit cost for just
    one variant with transaction KKPA LSMW)
    So, now we have to valuated the material cost estimate when the customer create the billing document and put the split of the cost estimate in co-pa
    Our prolem is : we have calculate standard cost estimate for 5000
    variant not for all variant (because our customer crete the BOM in unit
    costing with transaction KKPA and LSMW, and they refuced the idea to
    calculate 30000 cost estimate with lsmw) so when we crete a billing
    document with a variant that haven't cost estimate created the system doesn't
    valuated the cost estimate (the system works well), but how I can change the variant in the valuation and put the variant that have the cost
    estimate calculate?
    Wiht the transaction "Assign Costing Keys to Any Characteristics" I think
    is not possible.
    I must to use enhance COPA0002?
    Thank you very much

    Hi All,
    I am also facing the problem for Sales Order Cost Estimate. and the Costing Status is VO(Marked without errors).
    I have done the following
    created the Costing Key (sales order cost estimate)
    assigned costing key to the material type.
    assigned to the respective value fields
    sales order cost estimate,
    Run the RA
    Settlement done.
    But in COPA, cost estimates are not being split up based on the cost component (like Material, Labour and Over head) and it is getting posted to COGS only.
    Do we need to change the costing status to FR, if yes, but how to do ?

  • Error  - Material cost estimate with quantity structure

    Hello Gurus!
    Can anyone please help with the following problem:
    I’m trying to do the material cost estimate with quantity structure, but the system is throwing back the message  " There is no exchange rate for exchange rate type P on 1.01.2008: CHF -> EUR". 
    This happens because I have a subcontratation in my routing in CHF, and in transaction OB08, and I don’t had defined that rate (type P CHF –EUR).
    I need to know if there is any solution to the system assumes other Type of Exchange Rate (the last real exchange rate that I have introduced in my system, not the planned!)
    Points will be assigned to the suitable answer.
    Thanks in advance.
    Mary Jane

    Hi Sridhar
    Thanks for your reply.
    In OKEQ for the version 0, I have the rate type M.
    I don't understand why the system throwing back the message  " There is no exchange rate for exchange rate type P on 1.01.2008: CHF -> EUR".!
    Do you know why?
    Thanks and regards

  • Raw Material Cost Estimate - No split between cost component

    I need to execute a material cost estimate considering the Purchasing Info Record (PIR) where 3 different conditions are present:
    1) PB00
    2) FRB1
    3) RUC1
    The scope is:
    - linking PB00 to cost component 1
    - linking FRB1 to cost component 2
    - linking RUC1 to cost component 3
    Cost components are already created.
    I did following steps:
    - creation PIR with these 3 conditions (transaction ME11)
    PB00  10,00 EUR @ 1 KG
    FRB1   2,00 EUR @ 1 KG
    RUC1   3,00 EUR @ 1 KG
    - link condition types to origin groups (transaction OKYO)
    FRB1 linked to FRB1
    RUC1 linked to RUC1
    - link origin groups to cost component (transaction OKTZ)
    PB00, is linked to cost component 1 without origin group, but using only account coming from T030 table 
    FRB1 is linked to cost component 2 using origin group FRB1 and the same acocunt used for condition PB00 coming from T030 table
    RUC1 is linked to cost component 3 using origin group RUC1 and the same acocunt used for condition PB00 coming from T030 table
    At this moment, when I try to execute the cost estimate with transaction CK11N, the split is not done, and all condition types (all amounts) are linked to cost component 1. The set-up done in OKYO is not considered by the system.
    In the material master there's any origin group, if I try to fill in origin group FRB1 all condition types (all amounts) are linked to component 2, and if I try to change the origin group in the material master from FRB1 to RUC1, all condition types (all amounts) are linked to component 3 --> this means that the set-up done OKTZ is correctly considered by the system to link the origin group to the cost components.
    The problem is that the system reads the origin group from the material master, instead of transaction OKYO.
    How can I solve this problem?
    Thanks and Regards,

    Pl verify following two things -
    Check valuation variant.
    Strategy sequence should have 'L - Price from purchasing info-record' and Sub-strategy should be 'A Quotation price via condition table' or 'B PO price via condition table'.
    OKYO setting should have valuation variant associated with your costing variant, along with other details (dont leave that field blank).
    Let us know if that works.

  • Cost center doubt in Itemization of Material Cost Estimate

    I have one doubt. I creating a material cost estimate of a header material.A new overhead rate ZCDD has been maintained in the costing sheet. An existing crdit key ZC9 has been assigned to the overhead rate ZCDD. The cost element and cost center row has been added in the credit key.
    When I run the material cost estimate, the cost element it is coming, but the cost center it is picking is not the one which has been maintained in the credit key.
    Can you please clarify my doubt, I am stuck up on this. Please let me know if you need any more information roe clarifications.
    Thank you very much.

    Hi Rau,
    Thanks for the reply.
    Can u tell me, is it mandatory to have only one to one Cost Center-Cost element mapping in a Credit Key?
    I mean to say is it like that we can assign a cost element of a credit key only to one cost center?

  • Material cost estimate with quantity struchture : problem

    while running the costing transaction CK11N , the word u201Croutingu201D is not appearing under the explanation facilities.

    what will be the reason and solution.

    There is a standard report you can use - S_P99_41000111 - Analyze/Compare Material Cost Estimates .
    With this report, you can report the standard cost estimates for a range of materials.
    Good Luck!!!  Assign points if this was a useful input to you.

  • Material Cost estimate realted issue and question

        we have a multi level BOM, I have makre and released for one sub level material in the BOM, there are few other sub- materils which need to be costed, can i do the cost estimate for the highest level of BOM or do i need to do first for each sub- component in the BOM, also for the one sum- companent wchi is realesed can that be changed.
    please let me know.

    Both are in one way the same.
    Material cost estimate can be calculated as
    1. Material with quantity structure
    2. Material without quantity structure
    You can get more insight into it at the following link

  • Material cost estimate with quantity structure (tcode: CK11N)

    Hey dear friends.
    I donu2019t know in which forum I should put my question above.
    In fact, Iu2019m new to SAP PM module.
    Iu2019m trying to create material cost estimate with quantity structure (tcode: CK11N) for a material u201CXu201D.
    This material is manufactured.
    While running the transaction CK11N, I got an error message.
    After analyzing this error message, Iu2019ve realised that somebody had assigned wrong activity types to cost centers which are linked to this material in tcode: CR03, tab: costing.
    So Iu2019ve changed and assigned the right activity types.
    Then, Iu2019ve tried to run the tcode CK11N again. But the system still brings the wrong activity types and seems to ignore the ones that Iu2019ve assignedu2026
    It seems like the old activity types still linked to the cost centers somewhere else than in tcode CR03u2026
    Any idea about what am I mising ?
    Thank's in advance.

    Dear Bahia,
    If its rate routing means,i guess you must be working in REM scenario.
    So goto CA22,delete the existing operation and then assign the same work center in a new
    operation,check what activity types is it proposing in the rate routing,if its reflecting correctly means
    save the datas.
    Also goto KKF6N--->click the change mode icon and then calculator button to create a preliminary cost
    estimate and then save the datas.
    One of our forum friend has asked you to check the production order read PP master data once
    again,but understand there is no production order concept in REM scenario,only planned orders.
    Then come back with your queries.

  • Material cost estimate with Quantiy structure

    Hello All,
    Can anyone please help in the following problem. When we do material cost estimate with quantiy structure, system is throwing message as "source of supply cannot be determined".
    Maximum points will be assigned to the suitable answer.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, Srini,
    Please check in material master data whether this material is in-house produced or externally procured, which can be found in MRP view.
    Please also check your costing variant and valuation variant for material cost estination, I think possibly you chose stratey L FROM Purchasing Info Record. If not, ignor it.
    If it's externally procured, SAP logic is that firstly it will check the source list, then determine the quota arrangement and find proper vendor for the selected material. The error message is possibly caused by missing vendor or wrong quota reason. So please follow the SAP logic to check data one by one.
    Please check the following link on vendor determination in online help document.
    Please specify if you also used mixed costing for material.
    Good luck!
