    Hi,

    It depends on the type of sales order scenario. If the material is manufactured both for the make-to-stock-inventory and for the sales order stock in sales order based mass production then yes you need to run standard cost estimate. However, if the material is manufactured specially for a sales order you do not need to run standard cost estimate as cost estimate is run for a sales order item.

    Yes , you calculate the cost estimate for the standard cost for that material . You have an option either you calculate the standard cost using SAP cost run or you simply maintain the value ( calculated outside SAP) via MR21 transaction.

      We have a make-to-order (sales orders) scenario where standard cost estimate is updated in material master as standard price for finished products. We use CK40N to update the price.

      We also have a make-to-order ( projects) where we do run standard cost estimate in CO version 1 but do not update standard price in material master. The standard price is zero in material master , before GR from production.

      In a make-to-order scenario , you can choose to implement to update or not update standard price in material master.

      Hope this helps you.
