calculation wbs bom

hello!

is there an easy way to calculate just the material costs of a wbs bom (similar to transaction CK51N for order boms)? the wbs will be specific for each project, therefore i don't think that easy cost planing will work (SAP R/3 4.6c)

thanks!

    Hi Matthias,

    I do not think that there is an easy way to calculate the material costs of a WBS BOM.

    The materials of the BOM have to be transferred to the project through BOM Transfer so that all the materials' cost will reflect in the project.

    regards

      Hi,

      BOM Transfer is as good as manual attachment of materials. So when you transfer the materials from BOM to your project, you can see the total costs in the Plan/Actual report itself. I also had this issue in my project. So, instead of using a header material in your project, I just transferred the materials. I had no other way.

      Hope I have answered your question correctly.

      regards

    Hi,

    To obtain cost in WBS BOM, you can use material costing functionality. Once you run costing for header materials, then planned cost of BOM will be obtained.

    Hope this will help you.

      Hello ,

      I am facing similar problem.....can you please help me understand how u resolved it. I can not transfer the BOM in to Project because I have issues....

      1) I transfer, requirement for header component will not get generated.

      2) Requirement date for the child components will not flow as per the routing timings.

      3) While in planr parameters for MRP seetings , I flagged Sale orer/WBS bom indicator, hence during MRP run, if a WBS bom exists, system xplodes it and neglects Material BOM.

      4) Because seeting mentioned in point 4 , I amm assigning header component to project activity manually....drag nad Drop.

      However, similarly I want to dectate planned cost run to consider WBS Bom composition not the Material BOM.

      Help me with a solution.

      Thanks
