We follow cumulative costing ( a lower level FG becomes Semi-FG of a higher-level material and so on) due to some business requirements. So today, the std cost of superior material consists of the std cost of the lower level item thru BOM plus its own cost ( Raw mat+activity).
Now, we have a requirement to calculate the stand alone or unacumulated standard cost and maintain that value in commercial price 1 field of 'higher level material master.
For this, I create a new costing variant and version and set the cost element for Semi FG consumption as 'not relevant for valuation' under tax and commercial price section of OKTZ. But when I run the cost estimate against the new variant the semi FG cost is still being considered and rolled up. Could you please help me understand why this is happening and what could be missing on my part?
