1. Introduction to SAP Material Ledger by Paul Ovigele

Material Ledger is SAP’s solution to performing actual costing. It is supposed to contain the benefits (without inheriting the disadvantages) of the two traditional methods of inventory valuation - Standard Costing and Moving Average Costing.

5. Updating quantity fields in CO-PA by Paul Ovigele

If you are using the Controlling Profitability Analysis (CO-PA) module, then you know that the task of mapping various objects to value fields is the key to ensuring that the reports are complete and accurate.

However, it is also important to map quantity fields such as sales and production quantities to value fields (which are set up with a “quantity” attribute in transaction KEA6). Most sales and contribution margin reports contain these quantity values (for example Net Weight of products sold) in order provide the appropriate context for the reported revenue and cost of sales figures. I will discuss the three main areas where you can make assignments to quantity fields in CO-PA. Keep reading...
