Results analysis for POC method with statistical cost element
We are testing ETO (engineering-to-order) scenario With valuated
project stock and cost based POC RA method.
Inventory is updated during external procurement and we have used
statistical cost elements (Cost element category - 90) for inventory G/L.We want to use a
Result analysis method which considers this statistical cost elements
for calculating POC.For this purpose we have implemented SAP Notes
616960, 616869 and 78420.
In short, as per SAP note 616869, we created a customer enhancement
project for customer enhancement 5 of the results analysis (see Note
H78420). We copied the source code for customer enhancement 5 of the
correction instructions of note 616869 and then implemented SAP note
616960 to read the statistical actual costs.
Then we included the statistical cost as actual costs - Category K in
The system is doing POC and revenue in excess of billing calculation
correctly after taking into consideration the posted statistical cost.
During settlement of RA (CJ88), system is not giving effect to
inventory value. On settlement of RA, revenue should be recognized but
at the sametime the inventory represented by statistical posting should
be consumed(COS). The system should post a P&L posting which reduces
the inventory (representing statistical cost) and updates the actual
costs on settlement.
In our example, Statistical actual
posting is of USD 57150, planned revenue USD 100000 and POC is 70.27%.
Revenue in excess of billing comes to USD 70265.60. Recognisation of
revenue of USD 70265.60 is not correct as actual consumption is yet to
happen. The correct posting in FI should be revenue of USD 70265.60
along with COS of USD 57150.
Please suggest why on settlement the system is not posting the COS
along with revenue recognised?
