Cost component split: incorrect allocation of by-product generated

170 Views

Hi everyone,

I have a question involving the costs of by-products generated and their allocation on the cost component split.

Suppose that a production order, besides the main product, also generates a secondary product. By-products in standard system are confirmed with movement type 531. In transaction OMJJ this movement is linked to key GBB / ZOF. This key is assigned to a G/L account and this account is assigned to a cost element in OKTZ.

Example:

-


GBB / ZOF > G/L account 1000 > Cost component 10

Thus, the by-product generated should be allocated to the cost component number 10.

-


However, this does not happen. These costs are allocated to another cost component. This is because SAP ERP appears to use the key GBB / VBR to calculate the cost component split.

To summarize: for accounting purposes the system uses the GBB / ZOF (which is correct!), but in the cost component structure the system seems to use the GBB / VBR (which makes the costs of by-product being incorrectly assigned).

GBB / ZOF > G/L account 1000 > Cost component 10 (used ONLY for accounting purposes).

GBB / VBR > G/L account 2000 > Cost component 20 (it seems to be used in cost component split). INCORRECT!

Can anyone confirm whether that statement proceeds?

Regards,

Kelson
