Total cost of materials is not matching with individual sum - CK13


Please tell me in CK13 layout I found one material which is final finished item (315V-0109) is not matching its total value with below individual component's sum which is given below

M 1006 315V-0109 1 NOS 1325967.80 INR

M 0010 0001 1006 TE24132 1 NOS 686631.08 INR X

M 0010 0002 1006 TE02681 1 NOS 14,495.40 INR X

M 0010 0003 1006 AT180274 1 NOS 32,408.41 INR X

M 0010 0004 1006 TE21799 1 NOS 256523.72 INR X

M 0010 0005 1006 AT176539 1 NOS 4,383.74 INR X

M 0010 0006 1006 TE02682 1 NOS 35,850.82 INR X

M 0010 0007 1006 AT174224 1 NOS 45,762.65 INR X

M 0010 0008 1006 AT171733 1 NOS 122892.33 INR X

M 0010 0009 1006 TE24135 1 NOS 113485.19 INR X

M 0010 0010 1006 TA00377 1 NOS 24,307.98 INR X

M 0010 0011 1006 TE24162 1 NOS 4,944.54 INR X

Here total sum is Rs. 1325967.80 and individual sum total is Rs. 1341685.86 and the difference is Rs 15718.10. I have thoroughly checked material 315V-0109 cost estimation has made on 26.03.2011 and its lower components cost estimation date is 29.03.2011. both are period 12 of fiscal year 2010. While we do cost estimaton first estimates its lower components(BOM) and finally update to its finished material as standard price. If we calculate total sum of its lower componets that must be matched with its final finished items pirce.

What is the actual reason for this difference ? Is there any component missing whose price is Rs 15718.10

Best Regards,

    Please note that the determination of the costs behaves differently in

    the itemization and in the cost component split.

    In the itemization, each item is rounded separately, while in the cost

    component split first the individual items will be added up and then the

    value will be rounded. The differences can be avoided by increasing the

    lot sizes.

    Please review sap note 168238, which explains the systems behaviour

    and check the solution.

    To avoid the occurrance of this problem you should

    - always cost the header material again if an ingoing component with

    changed values is being costed.

    - also cost all materials again following a price calculation for a

    particular period.

    Please do not forget:

    The itemization view only displayed the itemization on that level,

    while the cost component view will display the cost component split

    from all levels.

    Please review sap note 889474. Sap note 66900 also explain why

    small differences arise between the itemization and the cost component


    I hope helps,

      Dear Maria,

      In my previous post I have missed to inform you that the material 315v-0109 cost estimation has made only period 12 of fiscal year 2010 i.e, 26.03.2011 and cost component estimation was made on 29.03.2011 i.e period 12 of year 2010. When I check period 1 of fiscal year 2011 I found final material 315V-0109 and its component was estimated on same day i.e 30.04.2011 and the diff was Rs. 3845.59 (main item price Rs. 1345570.67 and component total price Rs 1341725.08). And diff reducec by Rs 11872.51 ie. previous diff Rs 15718.10 and current diff Rs 3845.59. In SAP note 66900 it says small difference between itemization and cost components shown as example but our case we cannot accept this Rs. 15718.10 as small difference.

      You have suggested to run cost estimate again. Kinldy tell me can I cost estimate in period 12 of fiscal year 2010 agin because it has closed already.

      Best Regards,
