Cost component not getting updated in COPA


We are having issue in one of the sales scenario in COPA

We have a plant in Germany and another in Belgium
Goods are shiped from German plant to customer but the sales organization is of Belgium company code. (Intercompany)

Now when billing is created against customer below are the issue which we are facing:-

1) After creation of billing the Cost components are not getting updated in COPA. Is it becasue the material is not priced in Belgium? but
as per my understanding it would take the cost component of shipped plant ie Germany? (Note- All settings released to cost component assingment
to value field is already in Place.

2) The finance document has revenue related to external sales, but COPA has both internal and external sales, which is shooting up the Revenue.

Thanks for your help

    Hi Sharukh,

    As you mentioned already configuration in place, If you have below prerequisites, system should take cost components from COPC at the time of billing document transfer to COPA.

    1. Germany plan is mentioned in the sales order as delivery plant

    2. Cost Estimate created, saved and released in Origin plant (i.e., Germany) before the delivery taken place

    3. Access to Cost Estimate maintained at material or material type level for real time in KEPC.

    Hi Sharukh,

    Few Questions.

    1) Is your Valuation a Real Time Valuation (01).

    2) If so are you getting any error message while doing the billing.(Typically you should get an error)

    3) Has the system construction been in such a way that the error message is suppressed

    I believe the reason for not getting the Cost Comp Break up of your COGS is

    1) There is no Std Cost Estimate in your Belgium Plant.

    2) Your Costing Key is not set in such a way that it will read the Std Cost Estimate from Germany Plant

    There can be two ways to address the issue

    1) Transfer the Std Cost Estimate from Germany Plant to Belgium Plant using Spl Procurement Key.


    2) In case Belgium Plant receives only goods from Germany Plant, in the costing key definition specify the Germany Plant instead of selecting the option of "Use Line Item Plant as Cost Estimate Plant"

    Best Regards
