Prerequisites

You have made the required settings in Customizing for Product Cost by Period or Product Cost by Order under Period-End Closing

® Work in Process.

In Product Cost by Period:

  • The settlement rule of the product cost collector or manufacturing order (production order or process order) specifies settlement type PER (periodic). (
See also : Control Parameters in Cost Object Controlling).
  • You have entered reporting point backflushes for the run schedule header or operation confirmations for the manufacturing order.
  • In Product Cost by Order the settlement rule of the manufacturing order specifies settlement type FUL (full settlement).

    Procedure

    1. Choose Accounting
    2. ® Controlling ® Product Cost Controlling ® Cost Object Controlling Choose the relevant application component (such as Product Cost by Period), and then choose Period-End Closing ® Single Functions: Product Cost Collector or Single Functions: Cost Object Hierarchy ® Work in Process ® Individual Processing or Collective Processing ® Calculate.
    3. Enter data as required.
    4. Specify whether work in process should be calculated for all results analysis versions in the controlling area or for a specific results analysis version.
    5. Set the processing and output options as required. Enter a display variant if applicable. For information on how to define a display variant, see below under Result.
    6. Choose WIP Calculation
    7. ® Execute.

      Result

      The system calculates the work in process. The work in process is updated to the product cost collector or manufacturing order under results analysis cost elements.

      The screen Calculate Work in Process: List appears. The list contains the value of the work in process of the current period and the cumulative work in process of all periods.

      The work in process is shown for each order separately. In joint cost situations (co-products), work in process at actual cost is calculated and shown for the relevant orders separately for each order item.

      If you valuate work in process at actual cost and the system calculates negative work in process, the negative work in process will be shown separately from the positive work in process. When you settle, the positive work in process is capitalized in Financial Accounting (FI) in the balance sheet under the unfinished goods inventory. When you settle to FI, negative work in process is shown as a liability in the balance sheet under reserves for unrealized costs.

      ® Log.

      Explanation Facility for Work in Process

      To see how the work in process was calculated, choose Goto

      ® More Reports ® WIP Explanation. This displays detailed information on the costs that were interpreted by the system as work in process, and where these costs were incurred.

      Display of Work in Process

      The WIP is displayed with the ABAP List Viewer.

      For detailed information on the functions of the ABAP List Viewer (such as display variants, ABC analysis, or sending), see the following document:

      Cost Element Report for Work in Process

      You can view a cost element report for the work in process in the screen Calculate Work in Process: List with Goto

      ® More Reports ® WIP Report.

      Transferring the Work in Process to Other Components

      To transfer the work in process to Financial Accounting (FI) and Profit Center Accounting (EC-PCA), you must settle the order.

      Displaying the Work in Process

      To display the work in process of a particular period, go to the menu of Product Cost by Order or Product Cost by Period and choose Period-End Closing

      ® Work in Process ® Individual Processing ® Display.

      Order Selection in the Information System with Status RESA

      The status RESA (Results Analysis Carried Out) is set for the order. In the information system, you can select orders with work in process through this status.

      Schedule Manager: Worklist Monitor

      If you are using the

      generalized worklist, you can edit the objects that have errors in the monitor of the worklist. For more information, see the following section: Worklist Monitor ff.

      You can view the work in process in the order itself or in the Product Cost Controlling Information System. There you can also see summarized data. For more information, see the document Product Cost Controlling Information System.
