Product costing for seasonal materials

78 Views

Hi All,

I'm after some advice, my company manufactures fruit juice in Australia which is seasonal in different parts of the country.

I.e. in Quarter 1 we manufacture it at plant A but in Quarter 2 we manufacture in plant B.

We use the procurement type (MRP2 view) and special procurement keys (costing 2 tab of the material master) to control product costing in SAP.

For a material in plant A which is costed as a manufactured part in quarter 1 but a purchased part in quarter 2, our users temporarily change the procurement type on the MRP2 tab of the material from F to E. This gives a correct cost estimate but can cause issues in production / planning etc if activity is happening on the material at the time.

any advice on streamlining this process would be great!

thanks

Phil.
