Costing Run for Configurable Material


When I try to run costing run CK40N for KMAT material, I am geting information "No materials selected" for the 'selection' flow-step.

Below is the Error description.


No materials selected

Message no. CK277


Due to the costing variant used, no materials could be selected for the cost estimate.

System Response

No materials were selected.


1. First, check that the materials you want to cost exist.

2. Then go into Customizing and check the costing variant, the reference variant, and the transfer control. If the plant changes, a suitable transfer strategy must be entered in the transfer control belonging to the reference variant.


Thanks in Advance,

hi Shiva,

It is not possible to do the cost calculation for configurable materials in CK40N or CK11N.

To do the product costing it is mainly required the BOM and Routing, but in case of configurable materials the BOM and Routing are not fixed(here Super BOM/Super Routing are used with valid object dependencies which may result in "n" number of material variants)

To do the costing for configurable material you can use t code - CU50 (configuration simulation)

Here in CU50 you can select the characteristics values which ultimately selects the valid BOM and Routing required for variant production and do the costing and check.

Please check
