Product costing for seasonal materials


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!
