[COPA] Automatic Valuation using Tr Code KEPM

Dear All,

For Automatic Planning - using the method "Valuation" (material Cost Estimate valuation).

In the Costing Key "Period Indicator" settings is " Material Cost Estimate matching Posting Date". How does the system search for the cost estimate.

     1) Does it go to KEKO table and search...if so what would the input parameters be.

     2) When posting a planning line Item, since there is only Period option, what will be considered the posting date.

Thanks & Regards

    Hi Varma

    I think it should be the start of period

    In my opinion, for planning purposes, using "Future Price" makes sense. because you would ideally complete the Planning exercise before the next FY starts. In that process, you would do until Marking

    So, it makes sense to have future price as the 1st valuation option and then have other costing keys

    • Hi Ajay,

      The planning process is a little tweaked. Even before the Mark a Cost Estimate, they analyse the Costing Results after creating the Std Cost Estimate.

      Now when i run through,KEPM i am getting an error stating that there is no cost Estimate on a Posting Date (System Date is taken as Posting Date).When i try it through KE21S it is giving me a Valuation Simulation with no error.

      So after multiple rounds of testing, i thought the way system reads a Cost Estimate from KEKO table is different in both the cases.

      Hence, i wanted to understand the input parameters(for KEKO) that the system passes in both the cases.

      Best Regards
