    Co-product VS By-product

    - Receive via movement type 101/receive via movement type 531

    - Must be planned in production order/can be received as unplanned

    - Split the costs of the output using equivalent number or percentage/Deduct (credit) the input costs

    - Estimate standard costs of co-products is possible/must put the value manually

    - Then can calculate variance per co-product/cannot perform variance analysis

    That's I can think of now.

    Rgrds,

    hi,

    In case of Co-product costs are settled with a apportionment structure( Define in MRP2 View - Joint Production).

    In case of By-product the price of this by-product is credited to the order or the material stock account of the lead material being manufactured.

    Main difference betn the two is costing co product has a resonable prize but by-product has low(minimal) prize.

    Co-Product as well as by-product are defined as BOM Components/Items. Both of them have negative quantities.

    When BOM is created for FERT , you can see one indicator in COMPONENT DETAILS screen for co-product. You need to define the co-products with this special indicator .

    E.g - Edible oil processing - Fat is seperated from main product oil, fat can ba a by product

    Petroleum Crude Oil processing - Crude oil process for petrol, diesel & kerosene production. That can come under the co product.

    Rgd,
