CK11N - Cost Component View (Not Assigned Materials)

Hi Experts,

While executing Material Cost Estimate, i found that some of the materials which belongs to Raw Material Type were shown as (Not Assigned). Attached is the screen shot which shows only one material as raw material and rest are shown as not assigned:

I have checked following settings:

- Cost Element 600000 is assigned on Cost Component Structure (OKTZ)

- All non assigned materials are marked as With Qty Structure and Material Origin under Costing 1 View of Material Master.

Please guide.

    Dear Zain,

    there is nothing wrong with the cost estimate displayed in the screen shot.

    If there was an error in the costing process the you would see it in the message log.

    The cost component 'Not Assigned' is a short form meaning 'not assigned to a single cost component'. This always happens if the costing item has been valuated by cost roll-up of a cost estimate. In your example these are raw materials for which cost estimates were created/transferred. So, these raw material cost estimates might have a cost comoponent split (CCS) with values in several cost components (e.g. if you use overhead costs on raw material level or PIR with delivery costs). Then the costs of this raw material cannot be assigned to a single cost component in the next production level.

    This is especially happens if the itemization contains semi-finished products.

    In addition internal activities (and  processes) have 'not assigned' if their prices have a primary CCS.

    This is itemization CCS view screen shot..what message is giving when you are displaying CCS view?

    Share screen shot and full message..

    The material cost are shifted from lower level to top level and those cost are not assigned to Cost component on top level are shown as "Not assigned". You may check this by changing the display to Total/level/lower. Then can analyse the reasons.

    System is showing correctly.

      Hi Mr Rajaneesh & Kamal,

      We are using Material Ledger here and after every quarter we are changing RM/PM Planned Prices which became Standard Price after executing SCE of RM/PM and the respective variances are absorbed to SFG/FG based on consumption.

      If i will tick on 'Do-not Cost' then system will not consider these RMs and PMs in Cost Estimate then how system will post and absorb variance if there is any price change in these RM/PM materials?

      Furthermore, answering to Mr Kamal's concern, yes all raw materials are consumed using only one CE but i think this should not be the case.
