Hi Experts,

I'm evaluating the strategy/steps needs to follow during and after ML activation.

We have activated the ML and we want to know the what could the right sequence need to follow.

My question is what could be the sequence which needs to be followed here.

My idea is to run below sequence:

1) Upload material (A/c & costing view) with no prices

2) Upload the stock

3) Post the Book value of inventory using t-code MR22

4) Activate Production start-up (CKMSTART/CKMDJUST)

5) Change Price determination 2/V to 3/S

6) Release standard cost estimate

My question here is whether system will consider the differences generated during MR22 (before activation) & differences after the cost release (New price) and should be consider during ML closing for subsequent period end.

SAP note indicated below -

Release Prices for materials with inventory

The sequence you use when you release prices and change the price determination control has an effect on which prices are used for the valuation of your materials in the first period with active material ledger.

In order to start the actual costing with new prices, proceed as follows:

Release the new prices after production strartup and then change the price deter. frm 2 to 3. Keep in mind that when you follow this procedure, the price changes are kept on the revaluation account.

Also i need suggestion whether to extend the material accounting & costing view with prices (book value) and upload the inventory. In this case system hits the initial stock a/c instead of revaluation account (UMB).

Please guide on this below.

Hi Bask,

Thanks for you reply.

As per your last sentence 'After all migration related to stock is done with correct MR22 values, you can execute costing run steps to reflect price differences to stock.' - do you mean Closing run (CKMLCP) as you mentioned step 3 to cost & release std cost before MR22. Do we need to run CK40N again after MR22.

If i don't maintain any account determination for MR22 system post

Price Var - Mat a/c XXX (PRD & Account modifier blank)

To Revaluation A/c XXX (UMB)

My question is when i run CKMLCP, whether system consider both the above accounts for actual costing or only Revaluation a/c.

Also, I had created a new Account modifer (e.g., XYZ) and assigned to initial stock a/c. So the accounting entry is below:

Initial stock a/c XXX (PRD - XYZ)

To Revaluation XXX (UMB)

my question is when i run the CKMLCP, whether system will consider only UMB for actual costing or both the account modifiers?.

Based on your approach. I'm planning to do these steps as per below dates to match/present the book value of inventory for sign-off.

30th/31st of date -

  1. Run CKMSTART
  2. Upload material with prices
  3. Calculate & Release standard cost estimate
  4. Upload stock
  5. Post the book of inventory (MR22)

On 1st of next month:

Run CKMLCP to get the inventory at actual cost / book value in the inventory account.

Please suggest.

Regards

Bhaskar

Hi Bhaskar,

Eventually which steps and sequence did you adopt?

Is it necessary to perform MR22? When you upload material with a standard price in your Step 2, it is posted with an old standard price using previous calculation method. When you performed Cost Estimate in your Step 3, all price differences between your old and new calculation will be posted to Revaluation (UMB). I think Step 4 should be slotted in between Step 2 & 3 to make the above works.

Sincerely,

Sebastian

Hi,

Also you can follow this sequence

  1. Activate production startup (CKMSTART)
  2. Upload material with prices
  3. Calculate & Release standard cost estimate
  4. Upload stock
  5. Post the book of inventory (MR22)

If you follow this sequence, you don't need to run CKMM for changing price determination.

You can also use different account determinations for MR22, if you want to only update migration account (initial stock), you can use specified account determination method, and after for all kinds of price differences, you can also create another account determination which works with price differences accounts. After all migration related to stock is done with correct MR22 values, you can execute costing run steps to reflect price differences to stock.

Also If you are using R3 system, after upload the stock, you cannot release cost estimate for same month because material status will be "30-quantities and values entered".
