Variance calc. with Mix Cost Estimate based on Costing Version


For some material, we have defined external / internal procurement alternatives and we want to make a distinction between production version and costing version. So, at the end we have 4 versions : PX01 (prod ext) ; PI01 (prod int) ; CX01 (cost ext) ; CI01 (cost int). The distinction between production & costing version is based on Grp counter & BOM usage.

We released the material cost estimate based on the mix of CX01 & CI01.

We create a production order based on PX01.

=> During the variance calculation, we have the following msg : "CK736 : No cost estimate found for procurement alternative PX01 u2013 Ext. Prod.". This seems logic, but :

1) In standard case, we can define a production version and a costing version and the system is able to make the link during variance calculation.

2) How to indicate to the system the link between PX01 & CX01 ?

Thanks for your answers,
