    Defining different cost groups for different subinv in the same FIFO org

    785689
      Dear Apps Consultants,

      Are there any ways to set up/define different Cost groups for different Subinventories which are available within the same FIFO Costing enabled Inventory Organization?

      Kindly help me regarding the above query.

      Thanks in Advance!

      Regards,

          Hi,

          I think irrespective of your costing method (standard, average, FIFO,LIFO) we can define CG's at sub inventory level.

          You have to create a CG's one for each sub inventory and then create a CG rule for each one
          i.e. each of the CG rule will have its destination subinv EQUAL to the specific sub-inventory.

          Did you try this?

            Dear Karthik,

            When we are defining Subinventories in an Organization, System would default Org's cost group on to Subinventories as 'Default Cost group' and we can't change it as the field is grayed out .

            Could you please guide me on how to create Cost Group (CG) rule for each subinventory and assigning the Specific Subinv as its destination subinv for relevant CG rule.

            Please explain me in detail with navigation steps.

            Waiting for your favourable reply at the earliest.

            Thanks,
            Navin.

              Hi,

              First of all sorry for the very late reply.

              These are steps you can try to test a CG based on Sub inven

              1) Create a CG (Ex: MAIN) under Cost Super User> Cost Groups with type as INVENTORY and mention all your 5 bucket accounts

              2) Create a CG RULE under WMS Super User> WMS Rules with parameters
              Type: Cost Group Assignment
              Name: XXX
              Return Value: MAIN
              Restriction: Destination Subinventory Subinventory Name = Constant character MAIN (this is the same order in which you define in the form

              NOTE: You have to use ur subinventory name instead of MAIN in the above example.

              3) Create a Strategy under WMS Super USer>WMS Strategies with the parameters
              Type: Cost Group Assignment
              Name: XXXX
              Desc:XXXX
              Rule: XXX which u created before

              4) Go to rules WB and look for CG type on the top left corner then enter a Seq 1 and enter ur strategy u just created and save it.

              Try this and let me know if you have any questions.

              Karthik.

                Hi

                Is cost group setup mandatory for WMS setup? If I want to stay with inventory accounting setup, can I just skip CG setup? What is the miniumn I need to do for CG setup? ANy implication (account generation etc.) if I don't configure CG?

                Please help me.
