Material Ledger: Material Update Structure configuration requirement
We have to revaluate consumption of materials (i.e. to actualize cost of goods sold), we have created Movement Type Groups and assigned to relevant movement types.
What about defining Material Update Structure? do we also need to assign Mov. Type Groups to process category as mentioned in the screenshot? or if I don't assign the system will still calculate and post revaluation of consumption.
Please tell, whether assign or not to assign CF and CC as mentioned in screen-shot

If you want to activate the Revaluation of consumption funtionality in Material Ledger is not necessary to maintain transaction OMX9 "Material Update structure".
- Maintain the movement type groups in the Implementation Guide:
choose Controlling -> Product Cost Controlling -> Actual Costing/Material Ledger -> Material Update -> Define Movement Type Groups of Material Ledger
- To revaluate the material consumptions the movement type groups should must be assigned to the movement types in the Implementation Guide:
choose Controlling -> Product Cost Controlling -> Actual Costing/Material Ledger -> Material Update -> Assign Movement Type Groups of Material Ledger).
This is explained in detail in the sap note 648678.
