Hello Experts,

I have run standard cost estimate with t-code ck11n for the material codes.BOM is open. But standard cost is not included activity cost. And I have check routing and it is available to run standard cost estimate.

Can any one say what are the things to be checked if the above problem occur.

please check that you have created Activity Types for each machine and assigned these activities to the material BOM, the cost centers assigned to the corresponding work centers helps to calculate the unit cost for the product costing.

Just follow the below steps...

Costing Run

Costing run is used to process mass data. The costing run enables you to cost more than

one material at the same time, either online or in the background. It reproduces the entire

process of costing with a quantity structure.

Process Flow Overview

Create costing run

u2022 Company code

u2022 Posting parameters

u2022 Costing variants

u2022 Costing dates

Some material

Select specific assemblies for the costing run

Quantity structure determination for the selected assemblies

All materials

Select all assemblies for the costing run

After completing the steps for either Some material or All materials

Carry out costing run

Mark and release costing

The costing run involves separate steps, being the selection of materials for costing,

determining material components via the BOM explosion, and then carrying out costing

level by level.

BOM explosion is only necessary if a complete selection of materials is not carried out,

such as the selection of finished products only.

Logs are generated for each step of the costing run, and can be printed out and saved in

the system. With Extras you can print the logs for selection and quantity structure

determination, for costing and for marking and release (online or background mode).
