    Hi Vinu

    1. If you dont release cost estimate for Price control S materials, you need to maintain a manual price in MR21. Else, your inventory will be uploaded at zero value

    .2. Later on, when you release cost through CK11N, it would throw a price difference. You should be ready for this

    3. You should have started your cost estimate process way in advance if your go live is on 19th.

    4. Your variance analysis will go for a toss. Till the time you release cost estimate, you will only get "remaining variances" in the variance calculation. system wont be able to bifurcate the same

    5. It wont have any impact on WIP. However, if you are in prod cost by period, WIP is dependant on target cost. So, absence of std cost may also affect WIP

    6. Your cost breakup wont flow to COPA if you do not release the cost estimate. And if you have configured costing key in COPA to issue an error msg in the absence of released cost estimate, you should be ready to face the error or temporarily deactivate the tick in costing key
