Activity Quantity in standard cost estimate incorrect

After creating a standard cost estimate I verified the activity quantity by manual calculation. The activity quantity shown in cost estimate is always more that the manually calculated amount (0.6% to 0.7%).

There are no issues with costing lot size or recipe base quantity. Is this caused by some rounding-off set up? Is this due to planning for activity quatities in hours and specifying in minutes in the routing? Where is the conversion from minutes to hours defined in the system?

Or is this due to something else?

    My colleague told me that the difference is due to the difference in unit of measure between costing lot size specified in material master data (Each) and the base quantity in operations tab of the recipe (Cases).

    Is this not taken care by the additional tab of material master record where we have defined the relation between Cases and Each?

      We already fixed the issue on the lines of item 1 in your note. We also took care that item 2 is not an issue.

      But item 3 is a question we couldn't answer.

      Thanks for the interest
