Item Cost picked incorrectly in Move Order Issue

Unit Cost of few Items are picked incorrectly using FIFO cost method.
The process includes PO receipt for Items which are Lot controlled , these Items are inventorized and transferred to other subinventory through Move Order and later issued from the sub-inventory by miscellaneous issue.

Due to this cost difference variance is created and balance is transferred to Cost variance account represented by accounting line type 13 in mtl.transaction_accounts table.

Example for a miscellaneous issue:


where:TXN_ID=transaction-id; ALT=Accounting line type ; CE=cost element ; BTV=base transaction value

TXN_ID        ALT     CE       CCT            BTV               ORGANIZATION_ID      CR_DTE
