By this way we can activate split valuation for in-house production & externally procured materials.

Split Valuation for Material

1.1 – Purpose

          The SAP R/3 System allows you to valuate stocks of a material either together or separately. According to different valuation criteria Split valuation is necessary, if stock from in-house production has a different valuation price than externally procured stock.

2.  Process :-

2.1 Creation Of Material Master

Create Material Master through MM01, and also select Accounting views

You can see in “Goods receipt” tab Valuation type is defaulted as “IN HOUSE”.

Now confirm the production order using T-code Co11N.

Check the stock over view in Transaction MMBE which shows stock for two different valuation types.

    Well done – much better than the initial version

    if you activate the default for valuation type in creation of valuation category, then you do not need to enter the valuation type manually in a purchase order.

      Hi Vidya,

      sorry for the late reply, you can define valuation category for quality grades of material and configure the split valuation depending upon quality of the material. thanks

    Hi Amit,

    First of all very useful explanation. Excellent one, I must say. 

    My question is that can we use Split Valuation for Normal Material procured from a vendor for own use and Donated Material provided by a Donor for onward distribution for relief purpose in a single Material Type? I want to keep the price of both the materials same, but want different valuation class for both, so that they can hit relevant GL’s in OBYC.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Amar Lal

      Hi Amar,

      My apology if i got you wrong. As per your question you are referring two different material masters, please correct me if I am wrong. If my understanding is correct, in split valuation concept, it is only one material master where we maintain different data at different valuation type levels.
