MM - product costing question.

1. We want to put a component on the BOM but not have it in

inventory. In other words just have the cost on the BOM but not have

to issue, etc the component. How would we go about doing that and is

it possible?

2. Additive costs. We are using additive cost to put freight on raw

materials for standard costs. When we're roll these items the

standard cost roll doesn't recognize that it already has an additive

costs and adds it to the raw material cost again. We want to use additive cost for a multitude of costs and need a better understanding of how we can separate these costs out into different buckets so that they are easy to analyze.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Michael.

    Hi,

    <b>You need to define the bom component as non stock item and need to define the

    special procurement as direct procurement.</b>

    Using direct procurement we can order the bom components for planned order directly instead of via warehouse.

    Possibilities:

    1. Use the direct procurement key

    2. Define the item category as non stock item .This is only possible for materials

    without material master.

    In the planning run the system does not creates dependent requirements for

    materials with out material master but creates PR Directly for them.

    Regards,

    nandha

    For issue #1 , you can set this material as bulk material so you will not have to issue this material and this would still be included in the cost roll up.

    The other option would be to use a different material type DIEN etc that is not associated with Inventory.

    Hope this helps.
