3243060 - Valuation of Goods Movements for Materials controlled with Standard Price.


As mentioned in the Note 212286 - Overview Note: Valuation for goods movements - the Stock Posting for Materials controlled by Standard Price is made according to two different formulas:

- When the stocks are received, the goods are valuated according to the standard price and the price unit:

BSX = (standard price * quantity) / price unit.

- When the stocks are withdrawn, the goods are valuated according to the current stock and value situation:

BSX = (total value of the stock * quantity) / total valuated stock.

It is not clear why these two different formulas are used and it needs to be clarified why the first formula for the standard price is not used in both scenarios.
