Writing this post to help readers understand the Central Finance capability of replicating and consolidating Material Cost Estimates and share the steps and examples from my working experience.
Material Cost Estimates can be replicated from source system to CFIN. CFIN presents an opportunity for a harmonized and centralized material cost estimate where cost estimates with different structures/components from different source systems (LOBs) can consolidate into a centralized cost estimate in CFIN. Below is on example to help you visualize this capability in CFIN.
Material Cost Replication in CFIN
Replication is via SLT. Listed below are the steps that needs to be carried in CFIN to enable replication of material cost estimates.
