OPM Actual Costing considers charge estimated amount when actual (billed) amount is available

Testing the Acquisition Costs functionality in R12.1.3 RPC2 using freight/charge modifiers and freight bills, we found that OPM Costing engine, using a monthly PMAC, consider estimated amount calculated by modifier when the actual amount included in the freight bill matched against receipt of material is available.

ERROR
-----------------------


Even when, Actual Billed amount is present.. system is considering the Estimated cost only..


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1) Create Cost Factor assigning a component class and analysis code
2) Create Modifier as Freight and Special Charges to estimate charges using cost factor previously created
3) Create and Approve a PO
4) Receive the PO for the item included in the Modifier.
5) Run Actual Cost and Verify that estimated charges are included in product cost.
6) Create an invoice for freight/charge and match against the receipt of the material.
7) Run Actual Cost and Verify that still estimated charges are included in product cost instead of actual amounts.


BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot understand the logic of why Estimated Amounts are considered , even when Actual Billed Amounts are available
