 Segmentation Dependent Valuation Data


With this business function, you can maintain a new valuation type for materials which have segmentation strategy assigned, in addition to the blank valuation type. You can maintain the valuation type and then set the valuation price and the price control for the corresponding valuation type. To enable the system to execute the valuation process, you should assign one segment value as default segment value for the material in the material master data, which the system uses to create the new valuation type in accounting tables.

Effects on Existing Data

The user interface for the following transactions have been reworked to include the new parameter Default Stock Segment value (SGT_DEFSC). The new parameter is available in the Accounting view of the material master. You can use this parameter to define the default segmentation value for the system to generate the cost estimate for the defined default segmentation value.

The following table lists the transactions and the relevant program/screen in which the new parameter is added.
