Material cost flow to COPA

Dear Experts

My client is a consumer goods company and has following requirement.

FG is produced from plant A while sales is from plant B.

Material price in Plant B is marked up over price in Plant A. For purpose of profitability analysis, client wants price maintained in plant A to flow to COPA.

How can we achieve this requirement ? Should I configure KE40 and use feature "plant used for cost estimate" ?

If this requirement is possible, will COGS posting in accounting at time of PGI happen at material price of plant B or plant A ?

In such scenarios, what is best practice ?

    Dear Kapil,

    KE40 will work for you but in the scenario where you have one Manufacturing Plant.

    You could implement an ABAP code using the exit EXIT_SAPLKEAB_001 of COPA0002 Enhancement for valuation in COPA.

    You can implement your on logic of the valuation in COPA.

    To activate this, you mas assign the valuation strategy to an user exit at KE4U

    This solution is recommended if in the future your client will have any others Manufacturing Plants.

    Best regards,

    Gabriel Coleti.

    HI Kapil,

    At the time of transfer stock from plant A to plant B, system should copy the standard cost estimate from plant A to B,

    1) if the receiving plant B should have procurement type & special procurement key "F". While running the standard cost estimate in plant B, they the system should copies form plant A. for this configuration required in OMD9.

    2) Apart form this you should activate valuation strategy to an user exit at KE4U

    3) Maintain Mark up at plant B in Sales Order.
