    Material Master -Costing 1 screen is where the Costing lot size is defined.

    This can be segmented by plant.

    Generally (for your standard peice part materials) you want to keep it at "1". There are some documents where SAP uses "10" or "100" this is for some rounding /calculation reasons. But this can cause other issues, and I just find it confusing to be anything other then "1" (although i have only dealt with standard, "tangible" mfg materials)

    The only Costing Variant reasons I can think of are for priority of what "cost" to use (i.e. look for last purchased price, then MM standard cost, then previous, etc) I assume you are talking about running a Sales Order Cost estimate on a Configurable Material ?

    There will be multiple Costing Lot Sizes used for 1 material associated with Costing via the Variant Configurator. So the Material Master would not be effective. There should be something within Costing Variants that can be assocated with Various Lot Sizes, I think?

      In IMG-Product Cost Controlling-Cost Object controlling-Product Cost By Sales Order - Basic Settings.... - Preliminary Costing and Order BOM .... - Product Costing for Sales Order Items.. - Check Valuation Variants for Product Costing (Whew !)

      This defines the priority of which cost to look for 1st. I don't see anything in there that would relate directly to Cost Lot Size.
