Split valuation enables you to valuate sub-stocks (part of the total stock) of a material in different ways. The reason for split valuation includes
• The material has different origins
• The material is acquired via different types of procurement
• The material has different categories of quality

Split valuation is used only with the moving average price control, and materials subjected to split valuation can be valuated only via the moving average price method. With split valuation, we can see the total stock quantity and stock value at plant as well as the material valuation based on different grades of the material.

The valuation category indicates whether a material’s stock should be valuated as one unit or in parts. This category also a key that indicates the criteria for defining partial stock and determines which valuation type is allowed.

A valuation type is a key that identifies split-valuated stocks of a material and indicates the characteristic of a partial stock. The valuation category is assigned in the material master record, and the valuation type is selected during material transactions, such as goods issue and goods receipts.
