default alternate bill of material in sales order for costing

Dear all,

I am fico consultant

My client is having mto scenario in which sales order costing is used ,But there are frequent changes to bill of materials to manufacture a finished product i.e adding or deleting the bom components as per various

reasons best known to them.So as a result of this there are vaiances between planned and actual costs,

Now when i am running sales order costing in va02 it is taking only original bom (quantity structure and routing)and costing is done on that basis,but the fact is alternate bom was used So What is to be done to make a costing on the basis of alternate bom and what control is to be exercised for bom preparation and costing tob effective.

As i am using result analysis for inventory valuation using 01 method i.e revenue based method in that planned costs/actual costs are used for calculating cost of sales and wip ,because of above shortcomings my wip calculation would be affected.

Kindly provide valuable suggestions

Thanks and regards
