Change Cost component structure with ML and Sales order stock


I need some help.

In our Core model, Material Ledger is already activated.

For some companies, price determination is 3S and cost component structure is M1.

For ONE company (cc = 1500), price determination is 2S and Cost component structure is M2

We need to update the company (1500) with the new cost component and price determination 3S. We are doing also some Sales order stock.

When I read OSS note 434873 - Actl cost component split - cost component structure change, SAP recommends to delete CKMLKEV entries with report MLCCS_DELETE and creating for prior month, actual month and prior month of last year with MLCCS_STARTUP.

In the past (another customer), I did by another way.

I update OKTZ with the new cost component structure, adjust the transfer structure between old one and new one and fixed the date of the new one at first day of the month;

Like OSS note recommends, do all the tasks on the prior month (close process order, settle it, no WIP) calculate and marked costing price ... but we don't delete entries into table CKMLKEV because we have a mapping between old Cost component Structure and new one.

Just run report MLCCS_STARTUP in the new month.

Other question, in your opinion at what time is better to change the price determination (2S -> 3S) After report MLCCS_STARTUP ? or before ?

Thanks for your answer.

Of course if it's not clear don't hesitate to say it.

Best regards,
