Report that compares a material cost estimate with the Structure link preliminary cost estimate for a manufacturing order.


You can use this report to compare a material cost estimate with the planned costs of manufacturing orders for this material.

You can find this report in the following application components of Product Cost Controlling:


The view of a cost estimate relevant to inventory accounts is compared with a preliminary order cost estimate on the basis of original cost elements. The cost element itemization of material costing is derived with the following strategy:

    1. The system reads the cost element itemization of the cost estimate, if it exists.


In the SAP standard system, you can no longer control whether a cost element itemization is saved. The cost element itemization is always generated dynamically on the basis of the itemization.

    1. A cost element itemization is generated dynamically from the itemization of the cost estimate. This dynamically generated cost element itemization is not saved in the system at any time.

The cost base is calculated as follows:


Because the system cannot convert if the units of measure are different, this comparison is normally only suitable for a material cost estimate with the orders for that material.
