Split Valuation in the AFS Industry is an important crieterion for valuating materials. One of the major reasons for using Split Valuation would be to valuate the RMs differently based on their SKU levels. For instance, the various sizes of men’s pants have significant differences in their material input (e.g. zippers). Therefore, the large, medium and small sizes should be valuated and costed separately
Before the material master can be set up following steps need to be completed for activation of split valuation.
