Hi @KrishnaSB 

I would ask the rationale behind the same. What are the reporting requirements which are filled by Costing based COPA , which are not available with account based COPA. There is no such requirement that both are required. In my view it should strictly be driven by business requirements. Also note that with Universal Parallel Accounting (UPA) available in recent releases, there have been few innovations around Margin Analysis, which you might find useful. You might find the below blog as a very good starting point:

Thanks & Regards
