As per valuation category "Condition", three types of valuation types are used in SAP PM/MM.
Different valuation types are created to ensure different prices of different material as per valuation types.
Three types maintained are:
C1 = New Part
C2 = Refurbished
C3 = Damaged/Defective
Generally refurbishment is done for damaged part and once the refurbishment is completed its valuation type gets changed from C3 to C2. It is requirement in SAP PM refurbishment order.
See you have to use valuation type if you want to use refurbihsment proess
C1 ,c2 ,c3 defined & asthe order is settled to Material
You have recored history wright from Instllaing to repair by this
use only for those materials which requres frequent refurbishing
do not use those equipmets which you repairs once in two three years
or you through if if it fails
Technically speaking, you can create a Refurbishment order which uses a material without valuation. The system does not display that relevant valuation fields in this case (it does issue an informatio message). However, if you don't use valuated stock, then you cannot identify defective stock in SAP, nor account for it...
The refurbishment materials may also be refurbished infrequesntly (e.g. high value or citical stock items: gas compressor rotor, etc)
Here is the same case while using IW81 tcode, system is giving message this material has not valuated and in screen display no data is appearing related to valuation type.It means we can refurbish the material which are not valuated.Can you tell me what will be the impact on cost and material tracking ?

In the SAP standard refurb scenario we use C1, C2 and C3 (although they can be different if required). For a given material, each of the values has a different stock value e.g.
C1 = New @ £100
C2 = Refurbished at £30
C3 = Defective @ £10
If you do not use valuated material, then you cannot have partial stock (C1, C2, C3) in the warehouse and therefore you cannot value the different stock levels e.g.
10 x C1 = £1000
10 x C2 = £300
10 X C3 = £100
TOTAL = £1400
Identifying individual stock item can be resolved by use of serial numbers.
How to track the materials to be refurbished? Going to mmbe for a particular material OR any other way for tracking the overall report. Besides, what is the advantage of maintaining serial number, just to complete the Refurbishment Order Cycle?? Thanks in advance...
