Here you assign up to three costing keys to a single product for a specific point of valuation, record type, Planversion.
This assignment determines when and for which record type and plan version the system should read the product cost estimate specified in the costing key for that product.
For any "Valid to" date, you can assign up to three costing keys to one material. This means that you can access up to three cost estimates at the same time during valuation, and thus update the results of three valuation methods in parallel . The individual cost estimates are processed in the order in which they are entered here.

Before you can valuate using a
cost estimate for a material from Product Cost Planning, the valuation strategy you are using for a given point of valuation must be defined to allow this.
If you are valuating your data using more than one costing key, note that the system only fills value fields that are blank. Consequently, each value field can only be filled once, and existing values are never overwritten.
The system proceeds as follows to read the cost estimate:
Specify which costing keys you want to use to valuate your individual products. If you do not want to specify this separately for each product, proceed to the next steps. There you can assign costing keys to material types or any other characteristics by defining your own assignment tables.
