The following cost objects are used in Product Cost by Period:
A large number of key figures are available in Product Cost by Period. You can display key figures:
Which key figures can be analyzed depends on the object. For general information on the key figures in Cost Object Controlling, see the following:Key Figures in Cost Object Controlling
Functions of Cost Analysis
In cost analysis, you determine which key figures you analyze in Product Cost by Period. Reports ofcost analysis 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.
You can analyze the following for product cost collectors:
You cannot analyze planned costs for product cost collectors because no planned costs are updated for product cost collectors in preliminary costing. You can analyze the results of preliminary cost estimates for product cost collectors in the information system of Product Cost Planning in the reports for material cost estimates with a quantity structure.

Note on Summarized Analysis with Summarization Hierarchy
If variances are calculated for an order (product cost collector or manufacturing order), the system sets the status VCAL (variances calculated) on the order. To assure comparability, you should only summarize objects for which variances have been calculated. Use the status selection profile in the required data collection. Select the orders for which the status VCAL is active.
If objects with the settlement type periodic or full are summarized together and analyzed by period, this should be taken into account when the report is interpreted.Background Information on Summarized Analysis
