Repetitive- Error at MFBF "Existing standard cost estimate cannot be used"


Dear All

I processing REM material with profile 0002, i have run the standard cost estimate as well as captured product cost collector however when i am entering REM backflush through MFBF the following error reports by SAP.


This error appears under the following circumstances:

The existing standard cost estimate cannot be used for backflushing activities as the repetitive manufacturing profile was not maintained correctly when the standard cost estimate was carried out.

The standard cost estimate must come from product costing. Other cost estimates (such as base object controlling) are not possible.


The repetitive manufacturing profile assigned to the material at the time of the planned cost estimate must be a profile for repetitive manufacturing with product cost collector.

Use product costing to create the standard cost estimate.

Kindly provide any solution to the above problem.
