How to calculate costing of production order for month

Hi Gurus,

Request you to help me out in the following Problem statement:

Company manufacture multiple products and send them out for external operation to be sterilized. Normally, SAP creates a PurchReq for each external operation within an order. However, the sterilizer will mix multiple production orders into the sterilization chamber and run them all at once. They send a monthly invoice rather than per external operation or ProdOrder. There are two different sterilizer subcontractors, so at time of Production Order release, we don’t know which sterilizer will be used on a given day. Sterilizers also give tiered pricing (e.g. the first 5 runs of the month get price ‘x’, the next 10 runs get discount price ‘y’, and anything over 15 runs gets deep discount price ‘z’. We will want to total the cost for the month and distribute/allocate the cost across all orders of the month.

any ideas on how to handle this shared sterilization?

Thanks & Regards,

    If you have more than one source of supply and you can not determine the correct one at order release I would use the Mix-Price-Calculation. Regarding the discounts if they are not implemented in the inforecord you could use the User-eXit COPC0005 to implement your own logic to find the price in the cost estimate. Another option would be to use the gross price and to realize the discount with negative overhead rates ... here you can use the user-exit COOM0001 to calculate the correct negative overhead rate every time when a cost estimate is executed.
