Material to be tracked in MM but valuated in Asset accounting

My Client requires material to be tracked in MM but has to be valuated in the Asset accounting . Do we have any option other than implementing non valuated material type ?

Can we use split valuation to implement this ? Can we configure split valuation at specific material master field level like for example at material Group level because in our system we identify an asset by specific material group .

Any help on this is appreciated.

Thanks

You saw that this answered question https://answers.sap.com/questions/172383/material-should-be-track-in-mm-as-well-as-in-fi-as.html

And split valuation is described very well in help.sap.com and in blogs here in the community.

There is no split valuation at field level. And the named field is in the material master at client level, so how could this field even be used to make a differentiation. And what actually do you want to achieve with split valuation in this case, how could it serve the same purpose as a non-valuated material, it's purpose is rather the opposite.

Instead of re-asking basically the same question again you could have explained why you can't apply the same solution.

At present in the existing project whenever we are buying an equipment ( Asset ) from the external supplier and it is getting valuated as material type configured is as qty and value updated. Whenever we are issuing the same equipment to store there is a custom program which identifies if equipment belongs to material group which is asset relevant , it tries to create an asset and valuates it at moving average price . In this situation we have value of the same equipment or Asset in warehouse as well as in asset accounting . Inventory value is getting inflated in the warehouse due to this .

For the new project we will implement non valuated material type but to fix the existing project we were trying to identify the solution . I did see the documents or posts on split valuation and was trying to understand the concept as it says that same material can be valuated at different prices . So thats the reason I was trying to understand if there is any exit or config which we can use to identify material group and if it is ann asset valuate at 0 price when it is procured .

Thanks

Honestly I would recommend that you try to understand the standard concepts before rushing into programming, you just posted the issue in which you ran with your custom solution. Is there no accountant in your company that could explain asset and inventory concepts and that you can't record a single value on both.

Sure the same material can be valuated with different prices, e.g. a price for own produced material and a price for purchased materials, price for local procured material and imported material, price for new material and old material.

But spit valuation means valuated. Of course you set a standard price of 0.01, but this just means that the price that you pay is posted to a difference account when you valuate the stock with a standard price. And if you procure to an asset account, then you do not add any stock at a valuated material. What was described in the other answer can only be achieved with a non-valuated material
