ERROR in COSTING VARIANCE and Picking the Halb Cost in PrOr afterMRP

Hi Gurus iam a PP consultant

My PS collegue has a issue in Production order linking with his WBS element

As it is a Production order related iam in the loop for resolving it

Ok the Description of the Problem is

"Error in Planned Variance Calculation of Production Order related to WBS element in PS (Project Systems) after MRP Run and converting to Prod Order from Planned Order"

Detailed Description of the Problem:

The PS team is working on ECC6.0 Development server. In that they making projects which consists of WBS elements and those have Materials like HALB leads for Production Order . The Halb price maintained in Mat Master is Standard Price Rs150

After MRP run they will get Planned Orders, then Manually convert into production Orders.

The Halbe Material contains one ROH qty 1 , BOM also maintained as base qty of halb as 1pc

Activity cost in work center is labour activity say 1560 kp26 has maintained

Now after converting Planned Order into Production order they stay in Production order screen and Menu bar select GOTO -> Cost -> itemization then they will get a screen.

In that item no .... Total cost will come

If you take Total cost column they are getting cost of ROH,next row Activity cost , example ROH cost - 100 Activity cost 10 then next row is total cost =110,

There is another row which has suppose say item HALB cost = -150

So next row should be Planned Variance = 40

But here what the problem is it is showing Halb cost as = -100 that is rawmaterial cost and showing wrong variance

If i do Manual Production order creation it is working Properly,

More over we are in Reimplementation the legacy is 4.6C that is also rightly working.

The problem we are getting in Development server of ECC6.0

I think i have explained my problem guys.

If any clarification required for detailing the Problem pl let me know

Note: myself, FI/co and Ps are working on this issue

awaiting your replies
