Proposed system for costing of MTO sale orders

For MTO materials sale orders have to be costed every time a new sale order is raised although the material was costed initially.

Shown below is one such example . The same material is having to be costed each time a new sale order is raised , order quantity being the only variance.

This is a collosal waste of time and redundant activity.

It is merely the sale order quantity that keeps varying every time and not the BOM.

Such being the case we need to look at how this can be automated rather than manual costing each time a new sale order is raised, when there has not been any change in BOM.

Proposed:

We need to put in place a system such that -

1.Only those MTO materials that have new BOM/Routing should come for manual costing.

2.After being costed the first time, subsequent sale orders should be costed without manual intervention provided

A) there is no change in BOM/Routing from the date of previous costing

B) the increase/decrease in per unit standard cost over the previous standard cost is within a defined % (say 20%).

Thanks&Regards,

    Hi Rajendhar,

    Check the costing Id in the requirement class. You have not defined any thing in the field. Due to this you have to manual do the costing for the sale order. Select the options available in the field.

    Regards,
