Costing Run for Configurable Material

Hi,

When I try to run costing run CK40N for KMAT material, I am geting information "No materials selected" for the 'selection' flow-step.

Below is the Error description.

-


No materials selected

Message no. CK277

Diagnosis

Due to the costing variant used, no materials could be selected for the cost estimate.

System Response

No materials were selected.

Procedure

1. First, check that the materials you want to cost exist.

2. Then go into Customizing and check the costing variant, the reference variant, and the transfer control. If the plant changes, a suitable transfer strategy must be entered in the transfer control belonging to the reference variant.

Thanks in Advance,

Shiva

    hi Shiva,

    It is not possible to do the cost calculation for configurable materials in CK40N or CK11N.

    To do the product costing it is mainly required the BOM and Routing, but in case of configurable materials the BOM and Routing are not fixed(here Super BOM/Super Routing are used with valid object dependencies which may result in "n" number of material variants)

    To do the costing for configurable material you can use t code - CU50 (configuration simulation)

    Here in CU50 you can select the characteristics values which ultimately selects the valid BOM and Routing required for variant production and do the costing and check.

    Please check

    Hi

    Materials with Material type ( KMAT - Configurable materials) can not be costed as there will be no values assigned to a K-Mat unless it is configured during SO or For Simulation.

    You have the following options:

    Create a material master record for a material variant and use a material type that allows costing. In the material master record, link this material variant to the configurable material and valuate the characteristics.

    --You can create and save a cost estimate for this material.

    --You simulate costing in the configuration simulation. Choose Logistics -> Central functions -> Variant configuration -> Environment -> Configuration simulation. In the screen for characteristic valuation, choose Environment -> Costing.

    --You cannot save the cost estimate for this material.

    Regards

    Brahmaji

    Hi

    Check the costing variant which you had selected for the costing run. The std SAP variant is PPC1, check with your controlling consultant whether he/she created any custom variant. If yes you need to use that only.

    Thanks
