Costing Variant for Product Cost Collector
Hello All Experts,
We have scenario where we were using "Production Order" for some time and now decided to use "Product Cost Collector". For production order we configured costing variant which worked fine till time, as now we are switching to PCC ( Product Cost Collector ), I want to assign the costing variant which was used for production order, but I am not able to view it in F4 not sure why ?
I can see PPP1 and PREM as an assignment in cost collector. is there any problem in my understanding that PCC needs to have a different cost collector or any configuration is missing ? This issue came up when we tried to run "Costing" ( Costing button in PCC not CK11N ) for PCC it showed a "Zero" values in "Target Cost" field. When I checked I saw two different "Costing Variants" in PCC.
Experts guidance will be great on this.

Discrete: CK11N for a material -> CO01 - > GR from Prod order
Repetitive: CK11N for a material -> KKF6N - > GR from PCC
In discrete, you create a production order for a fixed qty and close the prod order once the GR is done..
In repetitive, you create a cost collector once and that is never closed.
Planned cost in PCC is auto calculated when you create it from KKF6N.. You can also recalculate it from MF30
Planned cost in Prod order is auto calculated in CO01 / COR1 and you can recalculate it from CO02 / COR2, if need be
The entire process is same..
Just remember that Standard costing requires costing type 01 and planned cost calculation in PCC requires a different costing type
Hope it is clear now
