# Real-time valuation of actual data for COPA

Hi,

I see there is a point of valuation 01 for Real-time valuation of actual data in KEPC. I just wonder why do we need this real time valuation because COPA Cogs is posted from VPRS condition type. In this case why would anyone want to use point of valuation of 01 to revalue the VPRS cost.

I do understand the periodic revaluation makes more sense because we can revalue the COGS based on ML actual price. What i don't understand is the purpose of Real-time valuation of actual data.

Hi..

While some company only want to display the total value(“VPRS”) of goods as cost of sales,

Other compnay want to display a much more detailed breakdown of the cogs as below picture.

So, We need Valuation Using Material Cost Estimates to get standard and actual cost component Split for COGS at point of valuation 01 for Real-time and valuation 02 for periodic.

To analysis the variance between standard cost and actual cost(PUP * sales qty) base on sales qty and revenue, we need the standard COGS which is valuated by your sales quantities using a standard price determined with a standard cost estimate, and the actual COSG which is valuated by them using actual cost estimates from Material Ledger. yy.png (32.3 kB)

Hi Sanjay

PV=01 is not meant to revalue the COGS, but to VALUATE it

VPRS gives you a single number, where as PV=01 helps to valuate Qty Sold with Cost component Split

In short, VPRS gives you 100 \$ was your COGS and PV=01 setting in KEPC helps you get break-up of this 100 \$ as (70 Raw Mat, 20 Labor and 10 Overheads)

Hope this helps
