Develop Enhancements for Material Costing

The following SAP enhancements are available for the area Cost Estimate with Quantity Structure:

1. Costing Reports: SAPLXCKA

Here you can create your own reports for displaying cost estimates with quantity structure or activate the example reports in the standard system.
This enhancement contains the following components:
This enhancement contains example program code from SAP that you can modify and use for your own enhancement, or activate directly as a report for the itemization.
This enhancement contains example program code from SAP that you can either modify and use for your own enhancement, or activate as a report for the cost components.
This enhancement does not contain example program code.
In the cost estimate with quantity structure you access the reports with Costs -> Display user exit . The report refers to the first cost component view listed. If you want to see the costs with reference to another cost component view, choose Settings -> Cost display and choose the desired report under Select view.
You can display your own reports in the information system by adding them to the report list for product costing.

2. Costing production resources/tools: COPCP003

This enhancement contains the component EXIT_SAPLCK01_001.
The costs for
production resources and tools are calculated as a flat rate within production overhead.
This enhancement enables you to plan the costs for production resources in costing with quantity structure in different ways. Here you can specify how the production resources are to be costed.
In thecost component layout, the production resources can be shown in separate cost components.
This enhancement contains example program code from SAP that you can modify or use as is.

3. Material valuation with cross-company costing:
COPCP001

This enhancement contains the component EXIT_SAPLCK21_001.
Here you can enter the prices for valuation of a material that is transferred between company codes.
You have the following options for the valuation of materials that are transferred between company codes:
If you have not activated cross-company costing, you can use this enhancement to define alternative prices for valuation of a material that is transferred between company codes. That is, this enhancement allows you to specify which price should be used instead of the price from the material master record.
This enhancement contains example program code from SAP that you can modify or use as is.

4. Costing Bulk Materials: COPCP004

This enhancement contains the component EXIT_SAPLKKEX_001.
You can use this enhancement to plan the costs for bulk materials and show in the cost element itemization.
If the indicator Bulk material is set in the material master, the indicator Relevant to costing in in the BOM does not accept input for the item. The enhancement allows you to determine the costing relevancy. The items with the bulk materials indicator at item level of BOM are also included as relevant to costing.
This enhancement contains example program code from SAP that you can modify or use as is.

4. Set the indicator Enhancement components and choose Change.
5. Position the cursor on the enhancement component EXIT_SAPLCKAZ_001 and choose Edit -> Use SAP source code.
6. The system asks whether you want to create ZXCKAU01. Answer Yes.
7. Maintain the attributes.
8. Save the program and choose Back.
9. Position the cursor on the enhancement component EXIT_SAPLCKAZ_002 and choose Edit -> Use SAP source code.
10. The system asks whether you want to create ZXCKAU02. Answer Yes.
11. Maintain the attributes.
12. Save the program and choose Back.
13. Activate the project.
14. To display the reports, you must carry out costing again.

Further notes

Unlike modifications, enhancements are always upgrade-compatible because they are implemented in a name range reserved for the customer rather than in the SAP original.

The general procedures for creating enhancements can be found in the enhancement transaction CMOD under Utilities -> Online Manual.

For more information on the above enhancements, see the associated function module documentation.
