Define Results Analysis Versions

In this step you define parameters that control the calculation of work in process (WIP):

The data calculated in WIP calculation is updated on the order with reference to the results analysis version. This enables you to calculate work in process on the basis of multiple results analysis versions simultaneously. This means that you can use different results analysis versions to:

You can create results analysis versions along with operational valuation that are based an "internal" results analysis version created for internal purposes, rather than on mutiple valuation. This means that you can use different results analysis versions to:
If you are using transfer prices , you can calculate the results analysis data in the following valuation views:
In the Product_Cost_by_Period component, the work in process at target costs is always calculated in the operational valuation.

Simplified Control

In simplified control, the results analysis version shows you the following:

If you are not using transfer prices, the results analysis version is always carried in the operational valuation view.
Results analysis versions of multiple valuation views are always actual results analysis versions. Results analysis versions of multiple valuation views refer to the results analysis version of the operational valuation view.
The version relevant to settlement is the results analysis version of operational valuation view and the results analysis versions of multiple valuation views referring to that version.
You can transfer the results analysis versions of several valuations to Financial Accounting.
If Profit Center Accounting is active, an additional posting can be made in Profit Center Accounting for the work in process on the basis of this posting if a profit center is entered in the order.

Extended Control

Extended control allows you to choose whether you want to do the following:

If you want to define different rules for the capitalization of the work in process for each results analysis key, you should set the indicator Assignment of results analysis keys in the results analysis version.
If you are using more than one results analysis method in parallel (such as WIP calculation in the Product Cost by Order component and revenue-based results analysis in the Product Cost by Sales Order component, you should define the update rules separately for each results analysis key. This allows you to classify a given line ID in different ways.
The setting in the standard system is that the results analysis data are updated under different results analysis cost elements depending different on the results analysis key. If you are only using one method, you can reset the indicator Update of results analysis keys in the results analysis version. The update rule is then valid for all results analysis keys.

Results Analysis Cost Elements

You can group the results analysis cost elements of WIP calculation under a Technical Results Analysis Cost Element .

Requirements

You must first process the following menu options:

You maintain one version in the General version maintenance and in the Settings in the controlling area and indicate this version as the one relevant for WIP calculation.

Standard Settings

The standard system contains predefined results analysis versions. To be able to use them in your production system and calculate work in process, you must already have done the following:

The data calculation in WIP calcualtion is updated on the orders under results analysis cost elements.
Line IDs control the capitalization of work in process.

Activities

Check the results analysis versions supplied in the standard system.

If appropriate, define new results analysis versions as follows:

1. Check the general versions to see which versions are intended for the calculation of work in process. Create new versions if necessary.
2. Create the cost elements for all relevant results analysis data.
Note that the results analysis cost elements are secondary cost elements of cost element category 31.
3. Enter the following data for the new results analysis version:
4. Specify whether you want to transfer the results analysis data to Financial Accounting.
