In the component Actual Costing/Material Ledger, you can perform multilevel actual costing by plant during a costing run. This allocates the follow-up costs to the semifinished and finished products, and the differences against a materialís preliminary valuation price to the material's inventory and consumption. This is accomplished with the functions of single-level and multilevel price determination. The recalculated prices can then be used for future valuation.
To use this function, choose Accounting® Controlling ® Product Cost Controlling ® Actual Costing/Material Ledger ® Actual Costing ® Edit Costing Run.
In multilevel actual costing, the system calculates a new valuation price for a material using both the material ledger master data and quantity structure data across all manufacturing levels.
