Scheduler for period end closing Activity

Dear Experts,

Our client want to define scheduler (schedule job) for period end activity which should calculate:

1. Production order Revaluation

2. Variance Calculation, KKS1

3. WIP Calculation, KKAO

4. Actual Settlement, CO88

So kindly let me know how to fix this in background with minimum manual intervention.

We need to do this for 9-10 plants, so how we need to take this:

1. To execute all the steps(1,2,3,4 and 5) for plant wise.

2. Or to execute 1st step for all the plants and then second onwards.

Because we need to consider the system performance as well. Thanks in advance for help.

    To schedule a period end activities you can club them in one job and create a variant for each individual program for i.e-Variance calculation ( KKS1) . Go to SE38 type RKKKS1N0 and create a variant where you can set parameters likes plants, order type, target cost version etc. Do the same for each of the activities you want then schedule a background job.

    • Dear Raja Sekhar,

      The objective of the transaction CON2 is for replacing the actual costs in the production order(Standard price* Actual Quantity) with the Actual Price arrives through KSII i.e( Actual price * Actual Quantity).

      Actual variances we should know after the KSII and CON2 only.

      After completing these two activities we can go ahead for variance calculation. Then only we can get the real variances between plan Vs Actuals.

    I would prefer the 2nd approach.. so that one plant need not wait for other to complete its jobs
