Production order settlement variance

Hi all,

New to SAP so apologies in advance.

Problem....when production orders are settled and variances calculated the variance is posted to PA. For out UK entity this has worked but for the US they have not and we have a £3k difference between FI and PA. After investigation, PA is less than the GL and it would appear that it relates to a specific product that is normally made in the UK but has been transferred to the US for finishing.

Can anyone guide me into where to start my investigation.

Thanks in advance.

    I am not sure if i understood the problem right. But please start checking the production order for that product and the settings for PA transfer structure where you will do the settings for transfer of variances.

    You may have to start from the production orders in the US environment.

    Check the order type used for finishing the material that arrived from UK. (T-code KOT2 can tell the properties of the order type)

    The order type shall have a settlement profile in its general parameters.

    Going through the SPRO menu Controlling>Product cost controlling>Cost object controlling>product cost by order>Period end closing>settlement>create settlement profile (for viewing/changing the settlement profile)

    Locate the profile concerned and double click. Check if the valid receiver includes Profitability segment as settlement allowed.

    Then ensure the PA transfer structure is included in the profile. The profile is maintained in KEI1. Here you link the type of variances to the value fields.
