PP: Target cost

Hi Gurus,

when I run kks1 for variance calculation for period 10 (Oct 2007) I am getting an error: message KV151

Only remaining var. in version 0 - no target cost for 000005005598.

So target cost is not calculated for above process order. I have produced the same material in the same period / different period and there was no problem with other process order. It was having target cost.

Can anyone give me an invaluable suggestion that I can calculate the variance and close the issue?

Thanks in anticipation.

RajaRam

    Dear Rajaram,

    If you check the process, at the time of creation of the order the system determines the target cost for the order.

    As per your message, if system calculated the target cost and hence calculated the variance for the same material in other orders, I think please check with the order where you got the error.

    Also for the error order, remove the TECO status and calculate the cost and then check.

    Regards,

    Narendra.

    Hi Raj,

    The balance should be zero for production orders before the orders get the status CLOSED or Deletion Flag.

    If the orders get the status CLOSED, then the variance will not be calculated however the orders will be picked during the process for checking the status.

    If the orders get the status, DLFL (Deletion flag), then the variance will not be calculated and not even picked during the process. This will increase the performance of the system during variance calculation and also during Settlement.

    if you give me brief i can help you out more.

    if helpful REWARD points

    Thank you .

    Regards

    Ram

      Dear,

      I am confirming again the target cost is calculated after the variance calculation is done.Till that you have only planned cost and catual cost,

      Check the following

      GR is done(COGI is clean)

      GI is done(COGI is cean)

      Status is CNF or/and DLV

      Target cost version is not locked for variance calculation

      Planned costs in process order before variance calculation is not zero-goto COR2 and calcuate the cost and check.

      If the above is checked and do variance calculation it will calcuate the variance...I simulated yr case I got KV151 error and i check all and finally got the result

      Std SAP help is as below

      You see which condition is failed in your case because of which the variance calcuation is not carried out

      Diagnosis

      For the calculation of variances with 000100000732 , the target costs in target cost version 0 are missing for the following reasons:

      • There were no planned costs and/or planned quantities (see earlier message).

      • The quantities on which the planned costs were based are zero in the time period concerned. This may be caused by the fact that no goods receipt for a cost object (such as a product cost collector or production order) has been entered.

      This results in target costs of zero.

      System Response

      Because no target costs were calculated, the difference between the

      planned and actual costs could not be broken down into variance categories. The difference is updated as a remaining variance.

    Have you done the GR for that order.

    After the DLV status System will show you the Target cost.
