Product Cost Collector

Hi PP Experts,

When i created a product cost collector, the cost estimate only considered the cost of materials, but has not considered activity cost like setup,production and teardown time.

How do i bring the activity cost in product cost collector?

Any suggestions will be rewarded.

Regards

Vinod

    Vinod,

    Yes you have to give activity type in work center. This activity has to be assigned a price in KP26 for the cost center.

    Hi ,

    I hope you must have created a product cost collector for your HALB or FERT material using a valid production version.

    Please check whether you have mentioned some standard time for your operation or setup or labour time in the routing for each operation.

    It's assumed that for your work centre you have allocated some cost centre and also check the valid from date in the costing tab page for work centre.

    Also please check the key date of your routing.

    Please revert to the forum after checking this.

    Thanks & Regards

    • Hello Dear,

      Could you please tell me wherfrm did u come to know that in REM no activity types are required for work centers.

      Please include the activity type for your work centre.and its own valid cost centre.

      It means for that particular cost center you have toassign some activity type.

      In KP26,for a cost center activity type & rate is assigned.

      You have to assign the same cost centre ans activity type here.

      But As you are saying there r no activity types for ur work centre,how did u enter the time required for each operation?

      Please check ,modify and work

      Thanks & Regards

    How do i bring the activity cost in product cost collector?

    for that go the t.code OPN2

    PLS READOUT

    Valuation variants

    A valuation variant is a parameter in a costing variant and controls the following:

    Which material prices or activity prices are used to valuate materials, internal activities, and external activities in preliminary costing

    Which material prices or activity prices are used to valuate materials, internal activities, and external activities in the actual data

    Which costing sheet is used to apply the overhead

    IN T.CODE OPN2 >>CLICK NEW AND ENTER THE VALVES THAT INDIRECTLY CONNECT TO THE PRODUCT COST COLLECTOR

    SO UNDER THIS T.CODE YOU CAN GIVE THE VALUES OF THE MATRL VALUE IF PROCURE, ACTIVITY VALVE ,SUBCONTRACT VALVE

    PLS GO THROU THE ABOVE IT WILL HELPFULL

    MAKE REVERTS
