Functions of Cost Analysis

In cost analysis, you determine which key figures you analyze in Product Cost by Sales Order. Cost analysis reports use the functionality of the ABAP List Viewer while offering additional functions in cost analysis. You can define layouts in cost analysis containing the key figures that you want to analyze. The column selection for the layouts contains different field groups (column lists) that separate the key figures into logical groups.

Key Figures in Product Cost by Sales Order

In Product Cost by Sales Order, you can analyze:

  • Planned values (such as total planned costs, planned fixed costs, planned variable costs, and planned revenues)

  • Key figures that result from actual postings (such as total actual costs, actual fixed costs, actual variable costs, and actual revenues)

  • Statistical actual costs

    Note that both the true actual costs and the statistical actual costs are displayed in the Actual column in reports for the sales order item. Both true actual costs and statistical actual costs can be differentiated from statistical actual costs through the cost element. The Funds Commitment in Inventory layout makes it possible to show true actual costs in a different column from the statistical actual costs.

  • Variances between planned and actual values

  • Results analysis data

  • Commitments

  • Funds commitment in inventory

With regard to the objects in the area of Product Cost by Sales Order, see the detailed information on sales order costing and the topics that discuss valuated versus nonvaluated sales order stocks in the documentation for Product Cost by Sales Order.

In Product Cost by Sales Order, a distinction is made between the planned costs that were planned directly in sales order costing and the planned costs on the assigned objects.

An additional view is available with a planned cost report for a sales order that displays the planned costs for the sales order item and for the assigned objects (manufacturing orders).

Note on Analyzing the Order Profit for Sales Orders and Internal Orders with Revenue

If you want to analyze results analysis data for sales document items that carry costs and revenues (in Product Cost by Sales Order) or for internal orders that carry revenue (such as in Costs for Intangible Goods and Services), make sure that results analysis has been performed for the sales document items that carry costs and revenues, or for the internal orders that carry revenue, in the relevant reporting time frame for the results analysis version to be analyzed.

You can analyze the results analysis data for a sales document item (usually a sales order item) or for an internal order with revenue. You can also analyze the results analysis data that was summarized across multiple sales document items or multiple internal orders. The results analysis data displayed depends on the results analysis version used.

Results analysis updates the results analysis data under results analysis cost elements that are defined and assigned in Customizing for results analysis. These results analysis cost elements are used for all reports.

In individual processing for results analysis, detailed information (for example, an explanation of how the values of the individual categories are calculated) is available as a list.

Note on Reserves for Unrealized Costs

Reserves for unrealized costs can be calculated in results analysis with different results analysis approaches.

Results analysis data (reserves for unrealized costs) can be displayed separately according to creation and consumption if the indicator Split creation/usage is selected in Customizing for the results analysis version. If this indicator is not selected, the balance is displayed.

Check this Customizing setting in the implementation guide of the respective application component of Product Cost Controlling under   Period-End Closing   Results Analysis   Define Results Analysis Versions  . The screen Change View Results Analysis Versions: Overview appears. Select the line to display the screen: Display Results Analysis Versions: Detail.

Reserves for unrealized costs are only created if the credit of the order exceeds the debits. In a particular period the object has either WIP or reserves for unrealized costs. This does not apply to summarization objects. With summarization objects, both work in process (at actual costs) and reserves for unrealized costs can exist within a period.

You must have performed results analysis in period-end closing in the respective results analysis version.

The key figures can be displayed and analyzed in detailed reports for individual objects as well as summarized.
