CK11N - NF Metals Total (SUMME NE)

We are working to implement the NF metals process in our system, currently in the configuration and unit testing phase. We believe we have encountered a problem when updating structural weights of materials that have inter-company components.

In CK11N, with a material that has components purchased from another one of our plants, the raw materials are not being considered in the NF structural weight roll-up even though they have Origin Groups assigned to the raw materials at the intercompany plant. Are we correct in expecting that intercompany raw materials wold be included in the structural weight roll-up at the assembly plant for the complete module? If so, any advice on what may be missing from our config or master data?

    Hi Jeff

    So far I understood the raw material A is bought in plant 1 and then is transfered to plant 2 where is part of a BOM list.

    In order to flow costs from plant 1 to plant 2, in material master of material A-plant 2, MRP1, Special Procurement key must be set up for example "01 - Transfer Stock from plant 1".

    In order to set up you must go to Define Special Procurement Type in SPRO.

    • Thank you for your response.

      We contacted SAP about this issue an dthey responded as follows:


      You are using a Transfer Control (PC01) in costing. By this transfer control an existing cost estimate of a BoM component

      is found and transferred into the new cost estimate (instead of creating a new cost estimate for this BoM component).

      The cost estimate that is found contains 'old' data, i.e. it was created when the material's origin group in MM was not populated.

      Please run CK11N without transfer control and you will receive the expected results.


      After clearing the Transfer Control field when using our costing variants, the problem was solved and we are now getting accurate results for NF Metals roll-up of boht raw materials and purchased metal content for components supplied by other plants to our assembly plant.
