Co-product material creating trouble in planning.

I have a scenario where co-product is produced along with Main one. Now my problem is as mentioned below.

The whole process order takes 21 days to complete.

Co-Product is recieved in GR on 7th Day. This needs to be GI'ed into another project where this will used as component. Since process order is not complete and confirmation of phase is not done, we have to keep co-product in stock till 21st day.

This is hampering the another process order where this co-product is required.

Please suggest what to do?

Please note that valutaion type for co-product and main product is V and not S. So the material must be in stock untill all the phase and complete and GI is done.

    Hi Animesh.

    This is a typical problem, thats why sap dont recomend work with V in HALB or FERT. refer for the following oss

    Note 81682 - Pr.contr.V for semi-finished and finished products

    The only "standard" solution in order to work the way you want (valuating the stock at moving average) is activating Material Ledger.

    With ML, you do an aditional close that revaluate your stock (or WIP), and the materials are valuated at Monthly average cost (keep in mind that its not exactly moving average, its monthly average).

    The flow could be something like this:

    1, Order Creation of HALB CO-Product

    2. GR of HALB CO-Product at Standard Value, day 7 of the order

    3. GI of the HALB CO-Product to the FERT Order

    4. GI of raw materials to the HALB CO-Product order, activity confirmation.

    5, At period end closing, the ML CLose revaluate the HALB CO-Product (if stock exist), and also revaluate the FERT based on the Monthly Average cost of the HALB. This is know as multilevel actual costing.

    Google Material Ledger Actual Costing for more info. Keep in mind that activate ML is a little proyect, with some complexity.
