Costing of Material, produced in Different Plants

Hi,

There is a scenario, in which a SFG is being manufactured in 4 plants (same material code) & then transferred to one Branch.

In this Branch (configured as a plant) some packing material is applied on that & send it to Sales Depot.

From sales depot, FG is being sold to customer.

Now I want to do my costing of FG on Branch level in which packing material is used. But how can I get the cost of different plants, since I don't have any BOM or routing for this branch. If I use Special procurement key 'F' & '40' for material code in this branch then I have the option to put one plant only in config for special proc key.

Is there another functionality can be used for costing in this situation or any solution is available? Please advice.

Regards,

Hitesh

    Hi..

    I think that you can use Mixed Costing because the Branch plant receive one material from several plants.

    Refer to below site.

    Mixed Costing - Product Cost Planning (CO-PC-PCP) - SAP Library

    Because the Branch plant is sales plant, not production plant.

    I think that the cost of the packing material is sales expense, not COGM.

    So you allocate the cost into co-pa.

      Hi..

      According to Hitesh Argwal, Branch plant don’t have any bom and routing and
      have a role to send the material to Sales Depot after some packing.

      So, I understand that Branch plant is not production plant.

      I think that the material in Branch plant for delivery to customer is FG for financial report, although the material is SFG in production plant.

      I think that packing cost is recognized as Sales and Administration cost.

    Hi Hitesh

    this is a challenge and as far as I know there is no solution to it.

    In accounting purposes, you can activate split valuation and valuate the inventory of each plant separately. But for costing purpose, you can consider only one price either avg of all prices or anyone price that you want which can be maintained as a planned price

    Hi,

    I have created my SFG as mixed costed material & maintained four proc alternatives Plants as stock transfer.

    I have also maintained the mixed ratio also as 100%.

    Now how to calculate mixed cost for this SFG?

    When I am going to do this thru CK11N, system is giving error that no itemization exist for this plant since I don't have any BOM or routing for this material in this plant.

    One more thing, I have given the price control as 'V' for this SFG.

    So how to do calculate mixed cost for this material?

    Please check the attached document containing mixed ratio.

    Is there any configuration also required for do the same?

    Regards,

    Hitesh
