Material Type Valuation class issue


we are making a updating of SAP. Unitl today i have mapped my finished product in :

Material Type FERT (Finished product)

Valuation Class 7910 (Finished product)

In the future my company want to map my finished product in:

Material Type HALB (Semifinished Product)

Valuation Class 7910 (Finished product)

the reason is that my product is a semiproduct for the company group.

This it can have any problem for accounting, logistic, or other?

Many thanks

    You can test material in your test system as you have same valuation class but different material type!

    How a company have one material today is finished product and the same is in future is semi-finished product?

    What about material code or material numbering?

    Again material to material transfer along with accounting entries depends on G/L mapping design based on valuation areas and valuation grouping code(OMWD and OBYC),if any

    You may check the below steps:

    • Remove stock for the FERT materials (as required for changing material type).
    • Maintain ACR (OMSK) for HALB material type & OBYC settings for the valuation class with the required GL assignment.
    • Change material type for the material to HALB using MMAM
    • Receive the stock back to the material with the valuation price.
