3046230 - Cost rate used in standard cost estimate is not correct

Symptom

You use App Create Material Cost Estimates to create cost estimate for a material. In the result screen, you found the cost rate for activity type is not as expected.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

Use App Create Material Cost Estimates to create cost estimate for a material.

Cause

By default, the valuation strategy for activity type is set as "Plan Price as Average of All Fiscal Year Periods" in the valuation variant.
So if the planned cost rate (maintained in App Manage Cost Rates - Plan) is not maintained for the whole fiscal year, the cost rate used will be devided into a smaller value than expected.

Example:

You maintained cost rate 100 EUR from period 9 to period 12.
With the strategy "Plan Price as Average of All Fiscal Year Periods", the calculated rate will be like:
100 x 4 / 12 = 33.34 EUR
(4 means sum of rates in period 9, 10, 11 and 12)

Resolution

The example result in the Cause part is normally not as expected.
So if you would like to have the correct period rate, you need to change the configuration in SSCUI 102608 - Define Valuation Variants per Plant => Tab "Internal acty".
Change the first strategy into "Plan Price for the Period".
