A question about Product Costing

Hi, guys,

I converted 2 production orders from a same sales order, each production order adopts 1 different production version separately, the 2 production versions are quite different due to different routings...

The situation I found was, whichever production order I did goods-receive FIRST, the product cost was fixed, the other production order would use the same product cost of the 1st production order despite a different production version was adopted already.

Our production mode is Make-To-Order.

Could anyone tell me the reason? Thanks.

Michael

Hi Michael,

the costing in an MTO environment will not be done on production order level but it has a reference to the sales order. The sakles order will have it's own cost estimate which you can view from the sales order display VA03.

This costing will be used by default for all materials that are delivered to stock (from production order) irrespective what the production version in the production order is.

There is also a strategy for costing the goods receipt where you could either switch to the production order costing or even to an own method determind in a BADI. But unles the delivered material has batch valuation the first goods receipt will determine the price because the same material plus sales order is delivered and you can have only one price (standard price) for that material segment (material number + plant + valuationtype + sales order number + slaes order item determines the segment). You can view the segments in table EBEW or change the price via transaction MR21.

best regards,

Udo

Hi, Udo,

Thank you for your helpful reply.

And would you please let me know which configuration can switch the costing strategies for goods-receive between sales order or production order costing?
