Standard cost in SAP R/3 3.1I without labor input


I am a cost accountant at a small manufacturing plant. We use SAP R/3 3.1I to manage inventory, product costing, and purchase orders for the most part. My question mostly has to do with costing. We use standard cost and that has worked in the past because we had all of our costs in SAP R/3 3.1I. Now we interface the mateterial data from SAP R/3 3.1I to SAP Hana. We then add actual labor costs and invoices without POs to HANA. This means the costs are incomplete in SAP R/3 3.1I for when we run month end CO-PA calculations. We began seeing huge variations compared to what we usually saw. Essentially we cant get labor and overhead variances anymore. That being said, we are no longer responsible for reporting variances other than purchase price variance and we only use USD currency. What sort of issues could occur doing this? Are we missing information? Do we still need to perform month end CO-PA calculations? I am sure the information I am providing is vague and may not be detailed enough.
