Suggested Answer

Dear All,

I am getting one issue in production order >> price calculation form.

Realized consumption and Realized cost amount is showing as blank only for material overheads. but for the same material overheads estimation consumption and cost amount is calculated properly.

Due to the above issue, FG price is coming wrong/less.

Can any one share input to fix ?

Hi Ludwig,

Yes. I kept sub type as "level" and checked before.

Currently, i have kept sub type as "Sublevel / Total" and noticed that "material overheads" node is not appeared in price calculation form. 

Production order status is ended.

Hi Karthik, 

Can you restructure your costing sheet a bit and include subnotes, such as the ones that you find in the contoso usmf company?

If you setup the calculation in a similar manner, things should work out properly. 

Best regards, 

Ludwig

Hi Ludwig,

Thanks for the update.

I am trying to delete existing nodes for indirect costs and trying to re-configure again as per the setup mentioned in screenshot.

During the above task, am getting below error message.

"Indirect cost Material overheads of type Surcharge is not found in the costing sheet, although it has one or more corresponding records in the 'Indirect cost transactions' table."

Is it not possible to delete indirect cost and re-configure. There is no open transactions in production order.

Hello Karthik,

This is an interesting message. Something seems to be broken. Do you have a developer around who can take a look at this and help?

Best regards,

Ludwig

Hi Ludwig,

I have cleared costing sheet and re-configured as per shared screenshots. Further, Created new production order is created after completing all necessary steps production order is Ended. Still in price calculation form, under overview costing tab 'Realized consumption" and "Realized cost amount" is showing blank only for "Material overheads" node. Not sure, still what setup is missed.

Hello Karthik, 

The only thing left is the type of the folder that was created

If you have this setup also in this way and things still do not work then contact a developer to debug. 

Best regards,

Hello Karthik,

How is the calculation of the overhead defined?

Can you check this in the setup of the costing sheet?

Is it possible that the % amount is set to 0?

Best regards,

Ludwig

Hello Karthik,

Do your sub-Boms (F-RM1, ... F-RM3) have cost prices setup in the costing version STD?

Are those sub-Boms assigned to the material and/or manufacturing cost groups?

Best regards,

Ludwig

Hello Karthik,

Can this be a date issue?

I noticed that your overhead is active from 10 May.

Has the production order been recorded and posted before the date the overhead % value was active or valid?

Best regards,

Ludwig

Forgot to mention:

Also try if you can enter a site specific overhead in the costing sheet to see if this makes a difference.

Hello Karthik,

Have you actually saved and activated the costing sheet through the buttons on top?

What I do not know is whether the production order that you processed has material costs included.

Material costs in the sense that those items, sub-BOMs, etc. have the material cost cost group assigned in the item master.

Can you double check that.

That is, what cost groups have the BOM items F-RM1, ... F-RM3 assigned?

Can you also test what happens if you add the 'manufacturing cost' cost group into the calculation for the overhead?

Would be a good test to see if the calculation works at all.

Best regards,

Ludwig

Hi Karthik,

Thank you for testing this.

Can you revert your setup back to the material cost group as before?

In addition, can you check two things:

1. What parameters are selected in the calculation group STD?

2. Does your material related cost group have the type 'direct materials' selected.

I would expect that there is an issue with no. 1

Would be great if you could double check that.

Many thanks and best regards,

Ludwig

Hello Karthik,

I think all your setup looks all good so far.

Can you check a last thing for me.

What do you see in the general tab of the costing sheet setup form for your material costs.

In one of your previous screenprints, I noticed the subtype 'level'.

Yet, if I saw the elements correctly then you use sub-Boms and do not have something on the same level.

Can you try using the subtype total and/or sublevel instead?

Best regards,

Ludwig
