Material Ledger: Activation with CKMSTART for previous period pos... https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/3881983

Dear all,

we are preparing the going live for our company in Turkey and we will use Material Ledger.

We have decided to conduct the master data migration and the stock migration from the existing
legacy system

first and then activate the material ledger via transaction CKMSTART.

Now the question arises what we will/can do if the stock migration fails at the last day of the period.

In this case we can execute the stock migration also on the first of the next month with posting data
last of previous period.

The MM Period is not shifted at this moment.

But can we execute CKMSTART on the first of the (current) month effective for the previous period
and then shift

the MM Period? Will we have than a Beginning Inventory i.e. in April with closing values of the
laegacy system and

Period Opening for May (first day for new company in SAP).

Transaction CKMSTART don't provide any option for fixing periods/year.

Thank you in advance for sharing your experiences with me.

Ralph

the Material Ledger in customizing to the end of the production startup


(CKMSTART), you will not be able to perform any movement of goods

in the related plants. You will also not be able to create any new materials

So, per me, you should run the Start Up Program first and then load the
stocks

@arturo senosain (https://people.sap.com/arturo.senosain) - Can you share

Hello Kamal,

thank you for your answer.

I forgot to say, that we import the customizing


after the load - so we get no error in

the upload. We tested this two times - no


problems.

The question now is, what date information


the transaction CKMSTART uses to

determine the period of activation - from the


current date or the MM - Period.

Best regards

Ralph

Hi Ralph

When you run CKMSTART the


following things happen

a. Creation of Material Ledger master


data for all existing materials and
translation of all material prices and stock
values into the currencies you have set
up for Material Ledger.

b. Translation of the existing purchase


order (PO) histories into the second and
third currencies.

c. Creation of the cost component split


data for the existing inventory

Since it is a Fresh implementation for


you, only Pt. c is applicable

CCS is created based on the existing Std cost estimate (Calculated


from CK11N). if you did not calculate it from CK11N, the Std cost
updated manually will be reflected in raw Material Cost Component

So you should run CKMSTART for the same period in which you
upload your stock.. Or whenever you execute it, it will create the
CCS for that Period

Hope this helps

Hi Ralph.

According to my experience, i recomend you the


following process:

0. Set in MM period APRIL (in case MAY is your go-live


month)

1. CKMSTART

2. Create Material Master

3. Do Sandard Cost Calculation (you you need, want


and also if you want initial stock with CCS).
Remember here you have date restrictions!!

4. Upload stock with accounting date april 30, with


the external value in movement 561. The external
value is your legacy value. You can upload the stock
on phisical day april 30, may 1.. or whatever day you
want. This is not a problem at all. the only important
thing is the active period in mm is april.

5. when MM boys end the stocks upload, do the ML


CLose of april. With the close, you have the ending

stock of April equial to your legacy and also the beguining stock of may. This
is your opening balance.

CKMSTART work with the MM periods, so create the ML record in the


current period, previous period and last year last month period.

PS. If youmake mistakes in your stocks upload and do MMPV and set may
as active period, its not a problem. You can still upload stock with period april
30, and then do the ML CLose of Aplir. The only thing to keep in mind is you
see in the beguining stock of MAY the GM april, but this is not a problem at
all.

Hi @arturo senosain (https://people.sap.com
/arturo.senosain)

Many thanks

two questions on Pt. 4

a. You said do standard cost calculation, but


load stock with external value. What's the
use?

if you have std cost, stock will always be


loaded at std cost and not legacy value.
Right?

b. If active period in MM is April, how can you


load stock on May 1

Hi. Letme try to explain this points:

7 of 9 03/05/2018, 14:07
Material Ledger: Activation with CKMSTART for previous period pos... https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/3881983

a. There are 2 things here to consider. If you work with CCS, in


the stock upload gm 561 the system behave in the following
way:

- if the system find a standard cost, the GR take the CCS of the
standard cost so your initial stock has an aproximete good
CCS.

- if you dont have a stadard cost calculation, and you hace


OKTZ customized, all the stock go to the cost element assigned
to GBB-VBR, in other words just one colum. You need to wait a
full roll of your stock in order to have an actual CCS. In this
case, the CCS of the COGS is incorrect for a period of time,
depending your stock rotation. Lot of implementations dont
have in mind this concept and find their CCS incorrect the 1st
months. Its a good idea explain this to your customer and they
know it.

The Other thing to consider: you need to migrate the balance


sheet of your legacy so you must upload with external value.
One theorically possible solution is do MR21 to the material
master before do the stock upload, but the problem is the CCS.
Also, with the hurry of the golive this is a bit complex. Some
implementations upload stock with materials in the stock
determination as v/2 and then do CKMM to change to S/3, but
this also have some problems, so i dont like this procedures.

b. Imagine you do go-live in May 2 (in lot of countries, may 1 is


holliday celebraithing the work day). In May 1 while all the ppl
are resting, the MM and COboys work with the MM Period 04
active (and previos period 03), you can upload stock gr 561 with
FI posting date april 30. This is what i mean.

When mm end the stock upload, do MMPV and set may as


active period and april as previos period and then do the ML
close of april in order to set the final stock of april valuated at
actual cost .. the actual cost is the external price in GR 561.

Wish this help you to understand my point.

Arturo.
