2907652 - Valuation of material XYZ in business residence ABC failed on DD-MM-YYYY

Symptom

You have maintained material XYZ(XYZ represents the ID of the material) in Project  that has business residence ABC(ABC represents the ID of the business residence). You think that the material cost will be included in the project planned cost. But when you look at the project planned cost, it shows zero.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Cost and Revenue work center
  2. Choose the Projects view
  3. Choose the Project
  4. Choose the View Plan Values button
  5. You can see here some of the project tasks are in Error status marked in Red color
  6. Choose project task and navigate to the Messages tab here you can see error message

Cause

As per help document for Materials sourced from external supplier we have  below 5 strategies

1.Price from latest purchase order with reference to the project

If a purchase order with reference to the project exists, the system uses the price from that purchase order. If there is more than one purchase order for the same material, the system uses the price from the latest purchase order.

Price from latest purchase order without reference to the project

2.If no purchase order with reference to the project exists, the system uses the price from a purchase order that does not reference the project. If there is more than one purchase order for the same material, the system uses the price from the latest purchase order.

3.Price from fixed source of supply

4.Price from contract

5.Price from price list

If none are maintained you will get this  error.

Resolution

Maintain one of the above strategies

also May be you have maintained cost in the material master data but currently we do not allow the cost to be picked from there if Material is sourced from external supplier as its used for materials taken from stock. so  since it was never there in By Design its a new requirement for us so please post new  requirements on Customer Influence Forum at https://influence.sap.com/sap/ino/#/campaign/886
