FIFO calculation with serial numbers

Hi Experts!

I created a Goods Receipt PO with the following information:

Date Quantity Unit Price Serial Number

9/10/13 10 2000 1-10

Then I created another Goods Receipt PO

Date Quantity Unit Price Serial Number

9/9/13 10 1500 11-20

Then I created Goods Issue


Date Quantity Unit Price Serial Number

9/11/13 5 2000 11-20

My question is why the unit price taken is 2000 instead of 1500 since the posting date of the GRPO for is 9/9/13?

Thanks,

Janice

    Hi,

    What is the price list that you use in the Goods Issue?

    What is the valuation methon in the master data?

    • Hi

      FIFO = First IN First Out

      In your example you wrote the same price for two goods receipt. I am sure the price is right because the first goods receipt has 2000 as price; and the third too.

      In a test enviroment try to do your example with three different prices, and you can see as SAP shows you the first cost price; and when you finish this stock SAP shows you the second, and again.

      If the behaviour is not as I explain you must open a SAP support message.

      Kind regards.
