Valuation methods

Hi,

Can we use separate valuation methods (ex. moving average, FIFO etc) for each plant separately, when all the plants are under same company code and if we set up plant as our valuation area? Please advice.

With regards,

Prabhakar.

    Hi,

    You can of course use separate valuation methods for each plant separately.See following details explaination:

    In case if you maintian in company code level then the price of the material will be same in all the plants in that company code.

    If it is maintained in plant level then the price of the material can be different in all the plants.

    In case if you are talking about split valuation then refer the below document

    Hi,

    If we set up plant as valuation area means,

    If a company code has been assigned to plants say plant1 and plant2, the vlaue of all the materials in plant1 and the value of all the materials in plant 2 will become the value of stocks in that company code.

    Each and every material in the plant will be having its own price depending upon the price control (v or s)(v--moving avarage price price value keeps changing over a period of time, s price will be constant over a period of time).

    the stock of that perticular material will be multiplied by the price in a perticular plant in all the storage loactions of that plant will be considered and will be added up (of all the materials in the plant) to find out the total stock value of in that plant.

    SAP can storage the data of stock values for each material in a plant and all the materials in the plant based upon the above said calculation.

    However differentiated valuation can be maimtained for a single material using the method split valuation.

    FIFO is the method to issue materials based upon first in first out method.

    The report TCODES MMBE, MB52 ,MC.9 etc will provide all the details with regard to the stocks, values.

    Regards,
