Function for Product Cost planning

Hi all,

I want to create un Product cost planning for a material with just 1 quantity (1KG) : the function that i've used in the work center is SAPC00 (Fixed duration) because 1000 KG of the material need 24H of activity type - 1 KG needs also 24H activity type (the machine works 24H non stop)

When i create a process order for 1000 KG, the system uses 24H, for 900 KG uses 24H, for 400 KG uses 24H ...(fixed duration)

But in the product cost planning, i see 24H for just 1 KG ??? Normaly i want to see cost of activity type like this ( 24/1000 = 0,024 H for 1KG).

    This is because of the lot size. In PP the lot size is defined as 1000. This means for production of 1000 or less quantity (may be even 1) the fixed activity required will be 24 H. But if your production qty is 1001 or more then the activiry quantity will be be double i.e. 48 H.

    You should also keep the costing lot as the normal lot of production. This may be 1000KG or 900 KG. This will reflect proper cost as activity will be taken evenly. Else your product cost will show abnormally high. You can set the costing lot in material master costing tab.

    Hope this clarifies.

      Thx for your suggestion, but i can't change the activity type unit (change became impossible).

      Even if i change it, it won't resolve my problem, because if i change de unit i have to change the price in the same time : 10 u20AC for 1 houre = 240 u20AC for 1 day !

      im waiting if you have other suggestions....
