    Suppose you released cost estimate using PPC1 at start of the year...

    Now, you have a requirement say at the end of each month to revise only the Activity cost and overhead, keeping the material cost same.. You do this with costing variant ZPC1

    In ZPC1 you can assign a reference variant... The ref variant will contain the Transfer Control which allows to transfer the existing cost estimates... In the next tab, you choose what all elements are to be revalued (Activity prices and overheads in above example)

    Now when you execute cost estimate using ZPC1, system will keep mat cost same as before and will revise the Activity cost and overhead part,.. Hope this clarifies!!
