Impact on business if not assign costing variant to PM order type

Hi All,

I know brief about costing variant, valuation variant and costing sheet but my question is what is the impact on business if I not assign costing variant to PM order types? If I am not assigning, system issue error but in green light means system allow to save the order with log in cost.

Regards,

Anish

    Hi,

    Costing Variant is very much useful in calculating the costs for the order.

    Under Costing Variant, Costing Type & Valuation Variant will be assigned. In the Valuation variant, price sequence will be maintained from which Material or labor cost should be picked in business transactions.

    If you dont assign the costing variant, as you said, it will give you information message. But it will allow to continue the business.

    Hi

    I think there is no direct impact with the business.if costing variant is not assigned then i think planned cost will not be updated. as you do the confirmation and goods issue against the order you can see the order Actual cost. Also the overhead cost will also not get updated if costing sheet is not specified
