VARIANCE CALCULATION

Dear Controlling Gurus,

1. Pl update me why it is neccessary to Perform Variance Calculation(KKS1),Before Performing settlement Transaction(ko88),Once the Order is technically Completed.What implications will it have on Order Costing if I settle the Order Directly?

2.I know Target Costs will not get Populated until we run Variance Transaction.is it Compulsory to Know the Target Costs?

will the Balance in the Order will not get Settled if I dont get Target Costs.Pl throw some Light on this.

Regards

Varma

    HI,

    The calculation of variances is controlled by a target cost version, which KKS1/KKS2 transaction does. Unless, you calculate KKS1/KKS2 you can't settle the Order with DLV/TECO status.

    Check this link on Variance/Target cost calculation.

    Hope this helps.

      Variance key may not have been entered/assigned to Order. You may settle the balance on Order, but you may not be able to perform Variance analysis. For instance, you cannot settle the variances to CO-PA, as you don't have Variance break down.
