This book will be useful for IT staff, junior consultants or power users who are responsible for setting up the CO-PC(product cost controlling) module in SAP ERP.

The book gives a good summary of each step in the cost planning cycle in SAP prior to runing costing in COPC: AOP sales planning in COPA, independent demand planning in S&OP, dependent demand planning in LTP, setting plan purchase prices in MM & cost-center cost planning in CO.

The book describes each of the important CO & logistics master data used by CO-PC. The explanations of lowest cost revaluation & material ledger setup options (single valuation v multiple valuation approach etc.) were particularly clear. An explanation of all the ML distribution options were missing.

The book works through the main configuration settings for CO-PC in a logical sequence. Generally the coverage is clear, concise & hits the main topics. Maybe a consistent example worked from end-to-end would be nice to see. If this book is aimed at someone who's never configured the cost component split then will they really know which primary & secondary cost elements they should be putting in the cost component settings? An example would make it clear. Also, no mention of special processing for rework orders or co-products, and nothing on cost object hiearchies (with or without distribution).

The chapter on special topics give a good overview of the setup of make to order (MTO) controlling scenarios & ML parallel valuation setup. A summary of account & cost element/cost object postings durring the MTO CO-PC cycle is shown but something similar for make to stock would also have been useful.

Overall; this is very good book if you want to understand the core functionality & technical setup of the CO-PC (product cost controlling) module in SAP ERP.
