Consumption Account

Dear Expert.

While doing standard cos estimate of a semi finished goods system is giving message Consumption account cannot be determined for

  • Chart of accounts            : COA1
  • Transaction                  : GBB
  • Valuation/acct modification  :     /ZOF
  • Material/valuation class     : 000000000000100051 /7900

Material 100051 is a scrap material.

My question is while doing standard cost estimate we are not using consumption account, consumption account is take place while confirmation not in standard cost estimate then why system is taking at the time of standard cost estimate?

Hi Debashsh

   This is very interesting question for many who initially started CO standard cost /planning cost level and I think it very right observation. Now I am trying to give some light on it.

    One thing I have understood from my experience that SAP has been designed keeping importance in planning  in every level of cost calculation and to build up a checks & control to proceed further to actual level , parameters are checked in regards to any material movement having assigned valuation class in MMaster though it may come up at actual consumption..But you slightly thing in depth..what do you understand when we maintain components in BOM...it is one kind of consumption instruction to manufacturing a product at planning level..so system has every right to ask for consumption settings in OBYC.

   I think I have provided you some system behaviour...
