SAP Assembly Scrap Basics

Attributed Profitability Segment - SAP S/4HANA

AnandCharacteristics from a profitability segment can be read and posted to income statement line items based on the best guess principle. This feature was introduced in account-based CO-PA in S/4HANA 1610. You can use drill-down reporting on posted data.

Let’s see how to display procurement types and then look at how cost estimates utilize this information.

SAP Actual Cost Component Split

JJ new

SAP Actual Costing with SAP Material Ledger allows variances to flow to semi-finished and finished products based on the consumption of lower-level components. While multi-level price determination allows you to see the actual price of all materials at the end of the period, you cannot display price differences rolled up separately from the lowest to highest-level materials. You only see price differences assigned from the next lowest level.

Add Cost Component Groups to Cost Components

JJ newCost components group similar cost types together by cost element. Typically materials, labor, and overhead.

Cost components are not available as columns in standard cost estimate list reports. However, they are useful when analyzing production or purchasing performance across a range of products. Add cost components to standard cost estimate list reports and costed multilevel BOM reports by creating cost component groups and assigning them to cost components.
