Product definition


Hi All

I had a unique problem which is explained as follows

I produce an FG till last stage and on the last poit is bifurcated into 3 grades as per the end result (Its a Process Indusrty). Now these grades are identified by the sales with Packing adopted and there is substantial rate diiferent between the Packing Material used. Now I given a suggestion to identify these FG's (under Same Material Code) by storage Locations say A , B & C and this will help in stock determination as well as ease the Production Planning. I dont want to create different Material for Different Grades as this will increase my BOM data Base .

But Finance wants to capture the cost element of packing in Bill Of Material or Product Cost . Can you suggest me any methodolgy to do the same . Remember its the final stage which decides the distribution of Product into grades A , B C eg if we get an output say 1000units 900 will be A grade 75 B Grade and 25 C Grade , but this is not in fixed propotion ....

Thanks in advance.
