Check Valuation Variants for Base Object Costing

You create a valuation variant here, which contains the parameters for the valuation of the costing items in base object costing.

Valuation Strategies

Here you define the sequence in which you want the system to search for prices in the accounting view and the costing details screen in the material master record to valuate the materials.
Here you define the sequence in which you want the system to search for prices in activity type planning or actual activity price calculation in Cost Center Accounting to valuate the internal activities.
You also specify what plan/actual version in Cost Center Accounting is used.
Here you specify the sequence in which you want the system to search for prices in the purchasing info record to valuate the external activities. The price in the operation of a routing is not relevant for base object costing.
Here you specify the sequence in which you want the system to search for prices in the purchasing info record. Purchasing uses quota arrangements to calculate a mixed price for materials that are manufactured by external suppliers with parts supplied by the customer. You can specify whether the quota of the individual suppliers entered in the source list for the material to be processed should be determined through the planned quota arrangement or the actual quota arrangement.
You can also specify whether overhead should be calculated for these materials in material costing.

Strategy sequences

You define the You define the individual valuation methods of the valuation variant as strategy sequences. For example, you could define a strategy sequence for the valuation of material components that reads the fields of the material master record in the following order:

1. Planned price 1
2. Standard price
3. Moving price

The first price that is not zero is used to valuate the material component.

To be able to use the valuation variant in costing, you must assign the valuation variant to a costing variant.

Overhead

In contrast to material costing, in base object costing overhead is calculated using the costing sheet specified in the base object master record rather than the costing sheet specified in the valuation variant.

Price factors

Price factors are only relevant for inventory costing.

Standard Settings

Actions

1. Enter an alphanumeric key and a name for the new valuation variant.
2. Create the valuation strategies.
3. Save your entries.
4. Assign the valuation variant to a costing variant.

Note

If you don't want to use the same valuation strategy or overhead rate in all the plants in a company code, you can define plant-dependent valuation variants by assigning valuation variants to particular plants. If you don't do this, the valuation variants will apply to all of your plants.
