Split valuation will work, as long as what you're looking for is a weighted average for the material. Split valuation gives the ability to keep track of different characteristics (origin, quality, etc.) for the number of items and price of those particular items. If you have material A with 10 items at 1.00 and 20 items at 4.00, the price will be (10x1.00 + 20x4.00)/30 items or 3.00. If weighted average is not suitable, split valuation will not work for you.

Subject: How to Control the Moving Average Price in the SAP Material Master

Dear Experts,

Good Morning!

How to control the moving average price in the sap, because our material procuring methods in two separation one Sea shipment another one is air shipment

As you know Sea shipment transporting cost is lesser than the air lifted material, some times we do the ordering same materials in to sea or Air freight

Based on the urgency, but most of the material procured via sea transport, so moving price is defined is last procured price + transporting taxes etc…..

Is there any different moving price maintained in the material master for SEA and Air procured parts because our production cost + material cost is work based

On the moving price only, our costing shows the Particular Production order make loss because Moving average price is higher… even we procured the material via

Sea shipments. Why this happened know earlier we procured the same material via Air shipment….
With best regards,
