Trading Goods Process - planning in EC-PCA


Dear Experts,

How are you? I do have some issues for Trading Goods Process in general and planning them in EC-PCA. Let me just give you more explanations about the whole process:

1)Trading Goods are materials, which we buy and sell and Material Price V is used in order to valuate them.

2) While going through the whole Sales Cycle and reaching Goods Issue, SAP ERP is looking for an Account with assignment of Cost Element as in General the posting is Dr COGS to Cr Inventory, but since this is Trading Goods and Price V we don't have Standard Cost Estimate to be used and here we use in our Valuation Strategy User Exit 1 and User Exit 2, but I'm not going to go in details what is the logic behind these to Exits.

3) The above explanations for point 2) brings you to conclusion that as you don't have Cost Object at Goods Issue, I can't see it in EC-PCA and I need to plan them manually on that account from point 2) and I want to avoid this!

Guys could you please share how is the process for Trading Goods in your companies, thanks a lot in advance!

Best Regards,

Georgi Georgiev
