  Production Version in Cost Object Controlling Locate this document in the navigation structure


The production version defines the method by which a material can be manufactured. It specifies a number of different parameters such as:

  • The alternative BOM for BOM usage

  • The task list type, the task list group, and the group counter for the assignment

  • Lot size restrictions and the period or area of validity

  • Whether the production version can be used in repetitive manufacturing ( Repetitive manufacturing allowed indicator)

    Note Note

    From release 4.6A onwards, repetitive manufacturing is based on production versions. You no longer create any run schedule headers in Logistics . Run schedule headers that were created in releases before 4.6A are still used and therefore still exist in the system. (Refer to: Run Schedule Header in Cost Object Controlling )

    End of the note.


Production Version in Cost Object Controlling

You collect the costs for a production version on a product cost collector. You create this product cost collector manually in the menu of Product Cost by Period . You can create the product cost collector individually (refer to: Processing Product Cost Collectors ) or use the function Collective Entry for Repetitive Manufacturing with which you create a separate product cost collector for each production version used in repetitive manufacturing (refer to: Product Cost Collector: Collective Entry for Repetitive Manufacturing ). The production version is linked to the product cost collector through a production process .

Production versions are not based on the lot size but refer to a period of time defined by the user. Under some circumstances this period of time can be the entire life of the product. Cost Object Controlling is period-based, and measures the target costs and actual costs for the period for each product cost collector.
