SAP COSTING ISSUE

We are facing a costing problem described as below

Single company Cost accumulation

Within a single company code, as we produce and move product cost accumulates correctly and we think of this as the shippers cost. For ex. Plant1 produces semi finished items from raw materials, that is shipped to Plant 2. Plant 2 produces finished items from the semi finished material that is shipped to a warehouse. Warehouse ships the finished item to a customer directly.

We have a cost run (CK13) to clearly see the cost in Plant1, Plant 2 and @ warehouse. The cost components accumulate value in both fixed and variable costs accurately.

Cost Accumulation while doing operations in multiple companies- concept is however same, but the data is not captured as fixed and variable costs separately.

Plant 1 produces semi finished items from raw materials that is shipped to another Company Code Plant 4 altogether in a different country. 

Plant 4 produces finished items from the semi finished material which is shipped to a customer.

The semi-finished is treated as a purchases and becomes 100% variable cost.

The correct split of fixed and variable cost is lost.

When the finished product is purchased by Plant 4 to sell directly. i do not know if "costing special procurement keys" would allow the correct cost to carry forward.

    Hi

    SAP help says this happens if the Cost Comp Split is not same between the two comp codes. In that case, the entire Cost is reported as raw Material cost.. Is thats what happening with you??

    • Mohamed,

      If the company code is out of the controlling area, I don't see how this is possible.

      I think Plants 1,2,3 (delivering plants) and Plant 4 (receiving plant) should use the same cost component structure to be able to do that. I'd be interested to know when you get a solution for this.

      Cheers,

      TD

    Hi,

    Kindly check your fixed percentages column on credit key assigments in costing sheet (KZS2),If you maintain the "*" in fixed percentages column that means 60% fixed cost and 40% variable cost, if you maintain the 100% in fixed percentages column that means your total cost will show under fixed cost. also check your cost component structure.

    hope this helps you and let me know if any queries.

    Regards,

    Puri.
