    1.) The production variances first need to be calculated in CO-PC.

    2. Your PA transfer structure must contain assignments of variance categories to COPA value fields.

    3. In the settlement profile, you define the variances to be settled and profitability segments should be a valid receiver.

    4. The settlement rule to profitability segments is created automatically based on the information available in the production order (product, product group, plant and so on).

    5. You must have maintained number ranges for record type "C".

    6. The desired form of Profitability Analysis (costing based) must be active in the relevant controlling area.

    Hope this is useful

    At the time of settlement of production orders, FI entry also passed as well as variances are also settled to COPA

    In FI, variances will be debited (assuming production order debit is more than what it is settled to Inventory at Std cost) and Inventory changes account is credited.

    In COPA, depending on the variance categories like Price, qty and their assignment to value fields, this amount is transferred.

    For eg, if prodn order actual costs is say 12000 and is settled to Inventory is 10000 (at std cost), and the difference is 2000 and if this difference is due to Price (800) and qty (1200).

    • Dear,

      First Need to create a Form for COPA reports for that KE34 need to use

      After creation of FORM then create profiability report throgh KE31

      Please run Run KKRV or

      SAP std. variances reports, S_ALR_87013149, S_ALR_87013148, S_ALR_87013146, S_ALR_87013145

    • Hi,

      If you wants to calculate variances correctly.follow the steps.

      1. calculate standard cost estimate(material cost roll up) for particular material and mark and release cost estimate.

      CK11N and CK24.

      2.Create production order

      3.goods issue and complete production order and good receipt(GR from production to Inventory) KKS2

      5.KO88 settlement.

      These are just process steps,before that you have to do congifuration for variances and COPA.
