Cost forecast and project stock

Dear all,

in our setup, we are using non valuated project stock. However, the 1st project to buy a component has to pay for it. Therefore, we activated the "Planification" flag in the network type (OPSC).

As a consequence, planned costs from network orders append the WBS element planned costs but not the assigned values.

We would like now to use cost forecast. It means we have to assign values which is exactly what we disabled by our previous config.

We are looking for a way to raise assigned values and roll up planned costs for project stock materials.

I tried to have a look in the Item Category setup but so far, I did not find anything.

Would anyone have an idea?

    if you need to go for network costing (with assigned values) consider the following...

    OPSC - uncheck the planning check box

    OPUV - Plan cost cal. = 2

    OPSV - Check (tick) appended plan update check box

      thank you for your reply.

      OPUV and OPSV are already configured as per your details.

      However, we needed to tick the "Planification" in OPSC in order to have planned cost for Project Stock materials.

      We are using non valuated project stock and it's the only way we found to roll up planned costs for those materials...
