You use app Analyze Costs by Work Center/Operation to show data in specific period. For example, you would like to display the latest period data by setting Fiscal Period From/To.
However, you found the orders shown in the report include very old orders which don't have any postings in the selected period.

Reproducing the Issue
In app Analyze Costs by Work Center/Operation, set Fiscal Period From/To. Then check the result data.
You may have changed the layout setting to include below fields:
Order Fixed Std Cost
Order Standard Cost
Order Var. Std Cost
The standard costs values are based on the standard cost estimate of the finished product.
The cost estimate could be created from old period, but is still valid in current period. So it's correct that system considered this kind of values.
If you only would like to check the actual costs which happened in the selected period, you should not release the fields mentioned above.
