Without split valuation, materials are valued at plant level. With split valuation, the same material number at a plant can have different stock quantity and value for different groupings (called valuation types).
The valuation types are set up in configuration could be for example:
The valuation typs are grouped together in a valuation category. So for example, the above valuation types could be grouped by age, country, color. A material is activated by entering the valuation type in the accounting view of the material master.
IMPORTANT: It is possible to change a valuation category if no stock and PO were created. However, once a Valuation category is assigned – it can not be un-assigned (make blank again). So it is not something that get changed at will. It needs to be decided on creation of material.
Steps to set it up
