3273756 - Wrong Material Valuation Taken for Cost Estimate

Symptom

Even though the Valuation Variant was correctly configured for the Costing Variant used, when creating Cost Estimate the Valuation Strategy taken is not the same as the one from SSCUI / Configuration Activity "Define Valuation Variant".

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access Manage Your Solution / CBC and go to SSCUI/Configuration Activity "Define Costing Variant";
  2. Select the Costing Variant and go to the needed Valuation Variant;
  3. Check the Strategies used;
  4. Go to "Create Material Cost Estimates" and fill the parameters;
  5. Go to the tab Valuation and it's not the same as configured.

Cause

"Define Valuation Variants" doesn't have the maximum priority for Cost Estimate.

Resolution

When a cost estimate is created for a material in a plant, you also have to check the SSCUI/Configuration Activity "Define Valuation Variants per Plant". This one has a higher priority then "Define Valuation Variants", so you should configure the needed strategies in this one to be taken in Cost Estimate.
