Standard Cost Estimate Transfer to COPA - Issue

Hello All Experts,

I am trying to flow the standard cost estimate to COPA and for this followed many threads which I really found useful.

Thanks to @Ajay Maheshwari SAP Trainer , @Rajneesh Saxena , @Srinivas Salpala  and all who helped to solve the issue posted by users.

I have followed the below steps following the threads –

1. Define Valuation Strategy as 001 in KE4U.

2. Define Costing Key - KE40.

3. Assign Costing Key to Material Type - KE4J. Instead of assigning costing Key to Product Type I have assigned key to Mat Type. ( I hope this is correct ).

4. Assign Value Field - KE4R

5. I have material which belongs to Material Type ZALB and it has Standard Cost Estimate Released for current period 7 2016.

6. I am running KE21S for this to simulate the values for below parameters -

On the next screen Material Number and Plant and click on "Valuation" button which I guess should show me the values from my cost estimate.

Like below -

Now if I can see the material I am expecting to show the value here has a value for this field in above screenshot in CK13N.

1) I don't understand which step I missed here or configuration part. Experts guidance would be very much appreciable on this.


Sharvari Joshi.

    Hi Sharvari

    Are you doing COPA planning?

      Hi Rajneesh

      I appreciate your point...COPA planning and Standard cost flow (CCS) is another issue. COPA planning for reporting purpose where you will trigger data from various value field but data must be updated in that field is a pre-requisite.

      You just see the process Trinath has shown and will understand that how by using P/V 3 standard cost CCS is updated in COPA field without SD when you do your copa planning this field you can use for standard CCS these are complements to each other.

        But when you want to capture actual data means object level (SO/Billing) you can use P/V 1 that why I told earlier that 1 & 3 combination will serve both the purpose but have to diff value fields to capture the data.

        Though I have not worked in COPA since last 2 may be skipping few points..if other can put more light on my concept...

    I think that your setting have no problem.

    You check whether standard cost have zero as Local Purch Raw Mats’s value using t-code CK13N.

    Hi Sharvari,

    I think there is some mistake in KE4R settings. Need to use Point of valuation 1 of actual posting.

    Hello All,

    Issue is solved now, I am able to get the value in in KE21S simulation after clicking on "Valuation" button.

    It seems my mistake or inadvertently I did not given "Quantity" in Value Field section (I apologies). I carefully checked and followed the steps mentioned by Former Member and in simulation I am able to see the values after given quantity.

    As suggested by @Rajneesh Saxena sir and Former Member sir I am going to run the SD cycle too. Thank you Former Member for your help.

    Thank you all, you contributed valuable time and shared your superlative knowledge in area.

    Thank you once again.

    Also one more thing I observed while performing KE21S COPA simulation system is considering Point Of Valuation "03" and Version "0" but I am posting actual COPA document from KE21N system is considering Point of Valuation "01".

    I hope this will be useful for others !
