Inccorect calculation of item cost fr FIFO costing organization

We discovered that system for some items wrongly calculate item costs. This has effect to column PRIOR_COST in MTL_MATERIAL_TRANSACTIONS which is used in many standard reports to calculate inventory value.

The actual formula used by the system is unknown but definitely wrong.

The problem relates to number of items – over 100 in total.

Expect correct item cost and correct column PRIOR_COST

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Responsibility: Inventory super user
2. Navigation: Inventory, Transactions.
3. Perform PO receipt and WIP transactions
4. Check Item cost
