    Hi Srinivas,

    Moving Average Price (MAP) is not calculated through Standard price; in material master we can maintain price control as standard price (S) or moving average price (V).

    MAP is calculated as shown below;

    Material purchased on 01jan09 - Rs. 100 @ 50 pic

    In material master it updates as 100 in MPV, 50 in total stock and 5000 in total value.

    When same material is purchased on 10Jan09 u2013 Rs. 80 @ 50 pic, now system updates as follows.

    100*50 = 5000

    80*50 = 4000

    Total value = 9000

    Total quantity = 100

    MAP = Total Value / Total quantity

    MAP updated in material master is 90

      Hello Giridhar,

      Thank you very much for your answer. my doubt is, will system consider moving average price in any situation or condition though the standard price control 'S' is enabled in material master.

      and another doubt when there is second lot of material with lower price, system will recalculate moving average price (i.e 90), will this have any impact on anything like inventory revaluation? are there any movement types which are linked with this? please let me know..

      Thank you,
