Valuation type


Dear all,

Our customer is petroleum trading company.

They want to manage the valuation by shipment.

We propose to use valuation type for each shipment (We will implement

Material Ledger for revaluation the actual cost of each shipment)


For Vessel X, at 04-Jan-11, valuation type = X04Jan11

The customer will have too many shipment every year (around 500

shipments), so they should create a lot of valuation types.

I have some questions:

1) How many valuation type (maximum) can be managed by SAP system?

2) How can we manage with too many valuation type? Users maybe confuse

with the system?

3) Have some customers implemented like it before?

Thank you very much for your support!
