Activity/Operation cost zero in cost estimate


I have configured Product cost planning in a Sandbox system and I am facing following issue while performing Cost estimate using t-code CK11N.

Activity cost in itemization is shown as 0 ( item category E ).

I am specifying Finished Good as input in CK11N, and this has a Semi-Finished Good and a Raw material in BOM. I have also maintained BOM for SFG.

Similiarly I have also maintained Routing for FG & SFG. I am using three activity types in operation and maintained price in KP26 for combination of Fiscal year, Cost Center & Activity type.

In Valuation variant - I have specified Strategy Sequence as 'Plan Price as Average of All Fiscal Year Periods' and Version as '2'.

While executing CK11N, I am specifying version 'Costing Version' as 2.

Appreciate feedback about why activity cost is not shown in cost estimate.

    Please check whether Note 1872228 is implemented.

    Please run KSPI and check again the result.

    Hi Kapil,

    It seems you have done all the relevant mapping/config but still the activity cost is coming zero.

    Please check routing once(T code-CA03) whether costing relevancy is selected or not.You can find this in operations-general Data.

    Please check and confirm and if possible please take help from your PP consultant.

      I followed points mentioned by you, but it did not fix issue.

      In itemization, it shows quantity as 0.0 HR for Activities. System might be unable to find some details correctly, due to which Activity Quantity/Cost is 0.0. Not sure where to check.

    Hi Kapil,

    Have you maintained plan cost in KP06?

    • Hello Sitaram

      KP06 is not maintained. It requires Cost center and cost element as input. Should I maintain it for combination of - Cost center ( in work center master ) AND Cost element ( Activity master ) ??

    Try doing Cost calculation for bigger lot size.

    Check the validity dates and quantity of routing.

    Check whether activity quantities are maintained in routing.

    • Hello Rajaneesh

      I tried by entering lot size 100 as input in CK11N. Activity price still does not show up.

      Though Routing for FG/SFG shows Activity quantities, but in CK11N itemization activity quantity is 0.0 HR

      BOM/Routing master data of FG/SFG is valid from 19.5.2015. In CK11N, I have given following dates -

      Costing Date From 25.5.2015

      Costing Date To 31.5.2015

      Qty Structure Date 25.5.2015

      Valuation Date 25.5.2015

      I am not sure why system is showing activity quantity as 0.0 HR in cost estimate.
