when I navigate to statistics of the finished production order, I didn't not get it specially the DEV % and the variance. I hope someone can assist me.

    the way BC calculate the costs is below
    90-107.5=-17.5 which is the variance
    -17.5/107.5=-0.16 which is the dev.%
    the calculation is correct.

    Its the difference between the Standard and the Actual column. The standard column is based on the item card setup, what the standard cost of this item should be. The Actual column, is the cost that producing this production order actually was. More info - Production Order Statistics - Dynamics 365 Business Central (
