DO NOT cost indicator In Matrial master

Dear all,

Can any one tell me the importance of Do not cost indicator, Initially system is not considering the DO NOT COST functionality,( i.e values are updated in the standard costing even when i select the Do not cost check box) When i run the standard costing,

Please suggest.

Thanks

    Hi,

    If you activate Do not cost check box, For the material then you can do the material cost estimate/ sales order cost estimate for that material. Generally we will activate this flag fot the Rawmaterials, so that system will exclude all the rawmaterils from selection at the time of Std cost estimateion. It will save your system performance as well.

    • Hi,

      Initially system will take the values of RM(Activated DO NOT COST) in standardcosting but later on if you run the standard costing system will not take the updated values .

      my question is what is the reason behind this process.

      Thanks

    Hi Kishore,

    Adding to Ram, If you select the DO NOT COST indicator, you cannot create the material cost estimate,sales order cost estimates and procurement alternatives.

    Material is excluded from selection and BOM explosion.So that no cost component split will be created by the costing process.Generally we will activate this flag fot the Rawmaterials.If the material is included in another cost estimate as a component to be valuated, the valuation price is determined through the valuation variant.

    I hope your problem will resolve, Please let me know if any queries.

    Regards,

    Puri

      Hi Kishore

      Actually if we tick the Do Not Cost indicator for the raw material then it will not allow the cost run for the raw material but if that raw material is in the BOM of any FG or SFG, the cost run can be done for FG & SFG,

      as your question

      My FG is having 2 components (RMs) in costs 100 and 200 respectively

      for example i have activate donotcost indicator for second material (200) will the system consider 200 in the standard cost estimate for the FG?

      the FG cost will be 300

      but if that raw material again have BOM components then the costing will not be done of that raw material

      Thanks & Regards.

    Hi Kishore,

    Normally we run CK11N and CK40N is for SFG or FG material only on that FG MAT( Material) we assign several RAW mat for that raw mat we assign as components. for that materials you are planning some cost for estimate or not based on that "Do not cost" and "with QTY structure" will be use full.

    The Do Not Cost indicator denotes whether the material is to be costed while cost run i.e. while executing ck40n. If the indicator is set, the material is excluded from selection and no BOM and Routing of the same will be exploded. It means you cannot create material cost estimate (with or without quantity structure).

    Price Indicator controls the movement of the material and its valuation.

    If the Price Indicator is S and the Do not Cost indicator is active, the standard price of the material will never get updated.
