    With respect to PP- Period end closing is the procedure to close all the production orders and see that cost is flowing from production order to material

    During period end - we TECO all the orders and see that production is complete from PP angle. Then costing will calculate over head/variance and settle the difference to production material or price difference a/c depending on the production material price control.

    Just see below the example of a production and costing entries. Thi8s may be helpful to understand the concept.

    Planned price

    Planned Material cost = 115.15USD

    Planned Activity cost = 6 USD

    Planned Over head = 25% of material cost+ 250% of activity cost = 28.79+15=43.79

    Total cost = 164.94

    Product cost as per “S” price = 1 USD (example)

    After GR and confirmation

    Actual Material cost = 7456.55 USD

    Actual Activity cost = 2USD

    Total cost = 7458.55

    Actual O/H = 0

    Production variance = 7293.61 USD

    After o/h calculation

    Actual Material cost = 7456.55 USD

    Actual Activity cost = 2USD

    Actual O/H = 25% of material cost+ 250% of activity cost = 1869.138

    Total cost = 9327.69

    Production variance = 9162.75

    After settlement

    Actual Material cost = 7456.55 USD

    Actual Activity cost = 2USD

    Actual O/H = 25% of material cost+ 250% of activity cost = 1869.138

    Total cost = 9327.69

    Production variance = 0

    Variance will be settled to Price difference a/c.

    When we do the GR the FI a/c will hit as below

    Production order expense a/c -

    stock a/c +

    When we GI the following a/c will hit

    Raw material a/c -

    Production order expense a/c +

    When we settle

    Production order expense a/c + or -ve

    variance a/c = + or -ve

    I hope this will help you.

    Hi Ranjeet

    You can use the tcodes for MMPV-CLOSE PERIODS. Once you close the period and after that use the tcode for MMRV-Allowing posting period to previous period.

    you can colse the period by using MMPV and after that you can post that particular period by using MMRV.

    HI Ranjeet

    we do period end closing after when we do TECO for Production order

    for all TECO do Overhead calculation KGI2 for ind. and col. CO43

    then do WIP calculation ind. KKAX and Coll. KKAO

    then we do Veriance calcul. ind. KKS2 in Coll. KKS1

    then in last we need to do settlement KO88 and CO88

    Thanks
