    Marufat,

    I would suggest you to look into the log of the order, from menu Goto->Logs-->Cost Calculation, here you would find what is going wrong. This you need to check before saving the order.

    General problems are that Price not maintained for components. If so please maintain the price using MM02 accounting 1 view or through MR21 transaction.

    Another and most likely problem is that activity price is not maintained for the period. You need to maitain the activity price using KP26 transaction for the Version 0, period 1 to 12, cost center / Activity type combination. You would find the cost center /Activity Id in the error message itself.

    Regards,

    Prasobh

    Dear Marufat,

    1) Plz check in KP26, whether u have maintained price for activity types

    2) Run costing in CK11N for header material

    3) Release the Price in CK24

    4) then create Production order, u will not get error

    Regards

    Hi MARUFAT,

    In case you're not concerned with the costing yet, simply disable the planned cost calcution.

    Goto SPRO

    Production -> Shop Floor Control -> Master Data -> Order -> Define order type-dependent parameters

    Choose your plant and order type.

    Goto tab "Controlling"

    For the field "Planned Cost Calcul.", choose "0 Do not determine planned cost when saving".

    Then you may go ahead to create your production order.

    Feedback if it works or not.

    Ken

    Hi marufat,

    Check if FG and SFG materials are having valid cost estimates.

    If not cost the FG with CK11N then mark and release the cost with CK24 or take help of your FI-CO person.

    Thanks,

    Swamy H P

    Cost consist of material cost which are the direct cost, it is calculated from the component and the material itself for which the order is created. If the material is semifinished or finished check whether the accounting view for these material contains value. These material could be costed as per the method mentioned by our friend or you may enter value through MR21 (if the material is not costed atall since it is created). It is recommended to update cost through costing run and by CO member. Now if the material is Raw material you need to maintain PIR.

    The second part could be the activity cost. These follows from the routing/receipe. Mostly the costing error is due to the inappropriate defination of either cost center or activity types. You need to confirm whether activity price are define for the period.

    Appriciating you for taking a concern on the costing error and not overriding.
