Indicator that tells the system to find the active standard cost estimate when materials have errors, and continue costing.
If you cost a material with a BOM, the system first explodes the BOM and then costs the materials, level by level, in the structure. The costs arerolled up. If a material in this BOM is costed with errors, it receives the status KF (costed with errors). This status is passed on up to the highest material.
If you set this indicator, then when materials are costed with errors, the system searches for the active standard cost estimate and uses the cost component split of that estimate to continue costing up to the highest material. If the system cannot find an active standard cost estimate for the material with errors in the structure, it searches for a price in the material master in accordance with the valuation variant, and uses the price for costing.
If you do not set this indicator, the price for the material is taken from the material master in accordance with the valuation variant.
In this way, the cost estimate for the header material receives the status KA (costed without errors), even though a material in the structure was costed with errors.
This indicator does not apply to the preliminary costing of product cost collectors.
