Determination of the Quantity Structure

Use

When you create a cost estimate with quantity structure, the system constructs a quantity structure from the PP master data (that is, BOMs, routings, or master recipes). You determine the data to be used for the cost estimate in the costing variant in Customizing for Product Cost Controlling.

The quantity structure is created automatically using the following data:

  • BOM and routing (production by lot size)

  • BOM and rate routing (repetitive manufacturing)

  • Master recipe (process manufacturing)

Costing copies this quantity structure automatically to costing items of type M (material) and E (internal activity).
