Costing Run for all Hub Plants

Former Member

I just want to understand from you regarding your Monthly Costing Run for all Plants.Actually we have Plant 5000 (Ruwais) which is our Manufacturing Plant having BOM.

We have two other Plants 7000 ( Shanghai ) and 7100 ( Singapore ) these are our Hub Plants not Manufacturing Plants and having no BOMs.

When we run our Monthly Costing Run for Plant 5000 using TCode (CK40N), it’s completes smoothly without any error.

We have to create a material cost estimate in monthly basis using TCode (KKPAN) before we execute cost estimate for both Plants 7000 & 7100.

We see these runs at the months end as very time consuming and we are not manage on time set for such update in SAP as part of the month end procedure.

I understand that your hub plants acquire all inventory from the manufacturing plant.

If that is true, there should be a special procurement key on MRP2 point from the hub plant to the manufacturing plant so that material requirements in hub will point to manufacturing for fulfillment.

If the special procurement key is in place, you should be able to run costing run (CK40N) for each hub and the cost calculated in Manufacturing will "transfer" to hub. Use the Transfer Control Key that allows you to transfer either a marked cost estimate or a released cost estimate, depending on the timing of the hub's costing run.

If there is no special procurement key in MRP2, then on Costing 1 you can assign a special procurement key for Cost that will direct the costing run but it will not affect MRP.

Hi Althea,

First of all thanks alot for your reply, after reading your reply i have selected Special Procurement Type not in MRP2 but in Costing 1 as (45 - Stock transfer from plant to MRP area) for our Hub Plants.

Now the issue i want to clear e.g. we have one Material in our Manufacturing Plant (5000) having BOM, we have procedure to Transfer this Material to our Hub Plant (5100) and (7100) i have tested this scenerio of Costing Run for both Plants assigned Spec Proc Type (45) sucessfully done without any error.

After testing these Costing Run in both Plants (5100) & (7100) same Material, i checked MM Plant (5100) in Costing 2 the Current Cost Estimate Planned Price is different from same Material in Plant (7100) in Costing 2 the Current Cost Estimate Planned Price is different.

Just want to why System is giving different Plnd Price Costs and if its ok then from where System is taking these Cost?

i am very much close to solve this issue with ur help, Thanks again for ur support.

can you give me ur Mob No? so if i want to clearify from you regarding same issue i can call you? my Mob No is (+971-50-728-5520) am working in Dubai (U.A.E)

Hello Yasir,

Your question: why System is giving different Plnd Price Costs

1 - You are looking at different currencies (I presume), our system converts with the P rate rather than the M rate. this could make a difference.

2 - I wonder if the system is recaluclating the BOM rather than taking the released cost estimate from Costing 2? Make sure that in the Costing Variant that you are using, that the Transfer Control for Cross plant costing is set to "2 Current Cost Estimate." Our strategy is 1st - Future Std cost estimate; 2nd Current Cost Estimate. With this stategy, once mfg costs are marked, the hub plants can run cost estimates; Then all plants release on day one of the fiscal year.

If the hubs are different company codes, be sure that OKYV is set to allow cross company costing

Please ensure that you have marked and released the cost in Shangai and Singapore plants? You had mentioned that you had only tested, However, only upon marking and releasing the cost estimate, the new value gets into the current cost estimate of the material master.

Hi Althea,

These all Plants are in one Company Code, we are also Using P rate.

Plz clear me which Transfer Control Key should use? i have tested with PC02(Complete Transfer), in our system i have one more PC01 (Transfer w/ plant change).

Hello Yasir,

In our system I see that PC01 and PC02 are the same for cross plant costing:

1 - Future Cost Estimate - valid for fiscal year

2 - Current Cost Estimate - no age restriction

3 - Previous Cost estimate - no age restriction

If your system is set this way, then for cross plant costing, it does not make a difference which one you use.

If all plants are in one company code then the currency should be the same in all, so P rate should not be an issue.

Take one part number: What period and FY is your current cost estimate? What are the validity dates?

go to CK11n, input the part number; <b>hub plant</b> number and create cost estimate.

On the Tab "QTY STRUCT." you should see only Special procurement data, the plant number should be the mfg plant.

Look at the Costing Structure. Top level should be the part in hub plant.

The first level below should be the part in the mfg plant.

theTosts should be the same and I would expect it to be the same as the current cost estimate. (Pay attention to the currency)

If the first level from the mfg plant is not the same as the current cost estimate, you will need to figure out where that cost estimate is coming from.

If you would like to send screen shots of your cost estimate screens, give me your e-mail and I will contact you with pictures of what I expect to see.
