12.1 S4TWL – Reference and Simulation Costing

Application Components: CO-PC-PCP-REF

System Conversion :

Check existing processes for cost estimation : If You are currently using base planning objects (i.e CKHS-BZOBJ =’1′ has records) to store cost estimates that can be included in cost estimates for projects, sales orders and so on as items of type B (base planning object), then this NOTE is applicable.

Impact :

The creation of cost estimates with reference to base planning objects is no longer supported in SAP S/4HANA.

Instead you are recommended to use transactions CKECP & CKUC

  • CKECP to prepare ad-hoc cost estimates
  • CKUC to prepare multilevel material cost estimates where BOMs and routings are not available for the material in question

CKECP

Prepare ad-hoc cost-estimates

CKECP

CKUC

Prepare multilevel material cost estimates where BOMs and routings are not available for the material in question

CKUC

CKUC replaces following ECC TCODES

CKUC replaces above TCODES.

One of Business-Usage of Reference & Simulation-Costing : – During Planning a NEW PRODUCT, for which NO MASTER DATA yet exists in the system

You can create cost estimates at different times and for different purposes during the course of the fiscal year:

Type of Cost EstimateTimeToPurpose
Base planning objectAt the beginning of the fiscal year or new seasonTo plan and simulate costs for new products or services, create a base planning objecPlanning and simulation of new products and services
What-if analyses
Standard cost estimateAt the beginning of the fiscal year or new seasonto calculate prices for valuating the materials to be produced, create a standard cost estimate or Inventory Cost EstimateValuation of the planned quantity structure with planned prices
Calculation of standard prices for the valuation of materials with price control S
Modified standard cost estimateDuring the fiscal yearTo take into account technical changes and their effects on costs, create a modified standard cost estimate.Valuation of current quantities with planned prices
Costing of materials during the fiscal year in order to analyze changes in costs
Current cost estimateDuring the fiscal yearTo get information on how the costs have changed, create a current cost estimate.Valuation of current quantities with current prices
Costing of materials during the fiscal year in order to analyze changes in costs
Inventory cost estimateAt the beginning of the fiscal year or new season –



Before the balance sheet is prepared: create an inventory cost estimate
At Beginning, To calculate prices for valuating the materials to be produced, create a standard cost estimate or inventory cost estimate.


Before the balance sheet is prepared: to determine the valuation methods for the tax-based and commercial valuation of the materials in stock, create an inventory cost estimate

Valuation of current quantities with tax-based and commercial prices
Establishment of valuation approaches for inventory valuation
