- SAP S/4HANA Cloud
Reproducing the Issue
Check Cost Analysis report for Production Order.
The calculation between Plan Costs and Actual Costs are different.
Actual Costs for Goods Issue are calculated as:
Goods Issue Quantity x Current Stock Value / Current Stock Quantity
The Plan Costs of a Material Component are calculated as:
Plan Quantity x Price / Price Unit
Even the Goods Issue Quantity (Actual) and the Plan Quantity of the component are equal, you may still have difference if Current Stock Value / Current Stock Quantity is not equal to Price / Price Unit
Price is 0.03 EUR per 1 KG.
Current Stock Quantity is 200 KG with Current Stock Value of 6.40 EUR.
Planned Costs for component quantity of 100 KG are 100 KG x 0.03 EUR / 1 KG = 3.00 EUR.
Actual Costs for Goods Issue of 100 KG are 100 KG x 6.40 EUR / 200 KG = 3.20 EUR.
The root cause of the variance is rounding calculation.
You could increase the Price Unit of the material to reduce this rounding effect.
