Standard Cost estimate in Backround

Hi,

Background

I have a scenario where I have a manufacturing plant & a trading plant which sources from the manufacturing plant. I have maintained special procurement key in the material master of trading plant.

Problem Statement

Material extension/creation is very frequent at the trading plant & users do not want to run the cost estimate every now & then. They need a solution by which the cost estimate is run automatically once the material is extended in the trading plant. Cost estimate is required to transfer cost component breakup in CO-PA when Invoicing is done from the trading plant.

Solution already tried

I have tried to use transfer control - Cross Plant feature but that will not solve the purpose. I understand that I can create a recording for CK11N & CK24 to release the cost estimate. Just wanted to check on your expert thoughts.

Hi Harnish,

If I am not wrong you want to transfer your production plant cost to depot. for that purpose you can try with costing key in COPA. In Costing key having option to assign specific plant. If you have only one manufacturing plant then your problem will be resolved.

In case of multiple plant need to check feasibility through assignment of characteristics to COPA

Hi Malay,

I am already using the costing key & in our case it is multiple manufacturing plants. My pain area is that I have to run the cost estimate at the depot level each and every time a material is extended. Is there a method where by if special procurement key is assigned in material master of depot, cost estimate of source plant is automatically transferred to CO-PA without running cost estimate in depot plant?

Dear Harnish,

You can transfer cost estimates of your production plant to trading plant's sales with CCS detail. You can use "Plant Used for Reading Cost Estimate" section in costing key customizing. You can specify source plant for getting the cost estimate detail.

You need to create a new costing key for your trading plant and then assing this new costing key to your trading plant in KEPC.

Best Regards,
