Cost components data to COPA Product wise


I want to cost component data to CO-PA product wise with variance calculation please correct me if i am wrong

1) I had activate the settlement profile by giving the tick mark on " Variance to costing based PA" check box (OKO7)

2) same settlement profile assigned to the process order type (CORN)

3) Create the Value field for three activities 1) lab 2) mac 3) pow etc., as vv01, vv02 & vv03

4) Maintain the PA Structure (KEi1) assign all the value field along with source field for all the variances

5) do the settlement of the process order of variance through k088  where COPA document will generate

above setting is working fine but now client expiation increase they want all the cost component structure need to flow to COPA

so i maintained the

1) costing key (001) there with transfer std cost estimate  - Radio button activated & Price indicator as mtrl cost est posting date

2) here i have confusion Assign costing key to material type = costing key through (KE4J) along with KEPC maintenance (what to maintain i am not sure) required expert advise

3) KE4R - i maintained as per the Costing component wise with value field after that what are the step i not confidence

need your further guidance

Thanks in advance

    1 At Costing Key :Best option is to use option '4' i.e. 'Released std cost estimate matching goods issue date' to avoid difference between COPA and FI.

    2  Depending upon your requirement you use KE4H, KE4J or KEPC. Ususally KE4J is used.

    3 Hope KE4U is in place.

    Rest seems to be fine.

      Hi Rajneesh

      Thanks for your support to solve this issue i solved this with the reference of below link

      Flowing of cost components to COPA | SCN    

      I missed the KE4J - setting i.e. C and E ( C- Order/proj.settlemnt and E -Single trans costing)

      previously i had maintained only ( A- Incoming Sales order & F- Billing data)

      Thanks you once again for your support to resolve this

    As observed the configuration is good enough for flowing cost component values to COPA..

    It is better to assign this activity to business team it self.

    They will decide and assign the components as per the requirement.

    Check the following:
