Analyzing the Costing Run

Use

You can update the results of costing runs in the price fields of the material master. You can transfer the results of the standard cost estimate as well as those of the inventory cost estimate, modified standard cost estimate and the current cost estimate into the material master. Before you mark and release a costing run, you should check the costing results.

  • Compare two costing runs with each other
