Cost Component Structure in COPA

Hi All -

 

I am a confused about what the cost component structure does in copa and how is it different than the profitability transfer structure.  I have read and searched forums, but I can't find a good explanation.  Sorry for the open-ended question, but I can't really make sense of this yet.  I am pretty sure I thought I knew how the pa transfer structure works, but to me, the cost component struture accomplishes the same thing?

    Hi

     

    CCS is used where your stock is valuated and Sales order is not a CO object.... When you do the Billing from SD - The Billing Qty is multiplied by the Std Cost (With its Cost Comp Split) and the COGS is posted in COPA....

     

    Hence, in FI you see one single value of COGS (Say, 100 USD), where as in COPA you see its break up (70 raw mat, 20 labor, 10 overhead)

     

    PA Tramsfer Structure - Is used during settlements...

     

    i. Setllement of Prod order variances to Costing based COPA

     

    ii.. In MTO scenario, where Sales order is CO object - It is used to settle the revenue and Cost of Production to COPA... In such cases, the prod order is settled to Sales order..... The revenue is also posted on sales order.... FInally, both revenue and cost are settled to sales order...

     

    Hence, PA Trf Str is used to mapp the Cost elements to Value Fields....

     

    You can design your PA Trf Str in such a way that it represents your Cost Comp Structure.... i.e. You can have assignments for RM, Labor, Ovh in PA Trf Str and assign each of them to separate value field

      Thank you, Ajay!

       

      OK, so this brings up a different question.

       

      If the COGS from billing document is posted to copa through cost component structure, then why is there separate mapping for VPRS condition type to COGS value field in "Flows of Values" configuration under SD flow in copa?

       

      Also, I think you said in a different thread that ccs is activated if you click the quantity/hrs billed check box.  If you do this, you don't assign cost elements or a  value field there for that assignment, right?  How do you know which PA transfer structure to check the box in?

       

      Thank you!!!!!

        VPRS also updates COGS... This is one single Value.... Amount posted from VPRS is the same COGS which is posted in FI

         

        CCS posts the breakup of COGS...This may be different than VPRS in case you have changed std cost after PGI, but before billing

         

        Also, I think you said in a different thread that ccs is activated if you click the quantity/hrs billed check box. If you do this, you don't assign cost elements or a value field there for that assignment, right? How do you know which PA transfer structure to check the box in?

         

        Where you have Sales order as CO Object and also your stock is valuated (Not recommended by SAP), in that case CCS gets triggered when you settle the Sales order.. For that, You need to tick "Qty Billed / Delivered"....

         

        Yes, in that case, you dont assign Cost elements to it.... The PA Trf Str which is used in the Sales Order Settlement profile should have this tick
