Months ending process material ledger/ actual costing

406 Views

Hello,

We will do our first months ending with the material ledger but we are not 100% what steps have to be done therefore. Normally we are doing following steps:

- Posting indirect manufacturing costs to the cost objects

- Splitting of actual prices via KSS2

- Calculation of actual prices via KSII

- Doing Actual Costing via CON2

- Distributing Cost Objects via KKPY

- Calculating variances in Cost Object Hierarchy via KKPT

- Settlement of variances from the product cost collectores via KK89

With the Material Ledger/ Actual Costing the process changes in my eyes like following:

- Posting indirect manufacturing costs to the cost objects

- Splitting of actual prices via KSS2

- Calculation of actual prices via KSII

- Doing Actual Costing via CON2

- Distributing Cost Objects via KKPY

- Calculating variances in Cost Object Hierarchy via KKPT

- Settlement of variances from the product cost collectores via KK89

- Doing actual costing via CKMLCP

As far as I understand the t-codes KSS2, KSII and CON2 are not necessary as the actual costing will do the functionality. As we have a cost object hierarchy in use, which gets burdened with costs and this costs normally are distributed to the different product cost collectors I'm not totally sure if this has to be done before the actual costing? (I assume but I'm not sure at all).

Any comment will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
