3157010 - Internal Error In The Valuate Action of a New Cost Estimate


An internal server error (system crash / error 500) happens when you simulate the valuation of a new cost estimate for a material.


SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Inventory Valuation work center.
  2. Under Common Tasks, click New Cost Estimate.
  3. Give the material, business residence and dates.
  4. Click Simulate.

You see that the system crashes.


There is a loop in the transport lanes for the material, which leads to loop in the valuation and consequently a memory issue.

The transport lanes can be checked as follows:

  1. Go to Supply Chain Design Master Data work center.
  2. Go to Transport Lanes view.
  3. Open the advanced search and use the Product ID as a search parameter.

In the resulting selection for this product, you see that there are loops in the transport lanes. For example:

Transport Lane 1 has Ship-From site A and Ship-To Site B
Transport Lane 2 has Ship-From site B and Ship-To Site A


In order to resolve this, you need to check if any of the lanes in the loop are obsolete so they can be removed. If not, you can block one of them temporarily to allow the cost estimate run to complete.
