How do you back track from a costing sheet to find out where it is actually used? Unfortunately, there is not an easy way to verify this without going through configuration screens or table data. This is also complicated because costing sheets can be attributed to material masters or orders. I recommend you use two tables in transaction SE16 or SE16 to determine where costing sheets are used in a standard cost (table KEKO, field KALSM) or on an order (table AUFK, field KALSM).
The cost component structure is used to indicate which costs should be included, whether to include the variable or total costs, and how to group costs in cost components. You can create cost components for major cost categories like raw materials, packaging, overhead, labor, and setup.

I recently used an interesting piece of configuration in the valuation variant to value externally and intercompany purchased materials. My client has unique challenges because they are vertically integrated. They produce almost every raw material that goes in to their finished goods including packaging and the machinery to produce finished goods. The amount of intercompany purchases is massive and we needed a sustainable way to value purchased items and reference the purchasing conditions for intercompany markups and other charges like freight and shipping labor. This configuration is a multi-step process, but it’s fairly simple when you have all the pieces configured correctly.
