Goal

We have a Product which contains only one Ingredient, and the ratio between the two Items is 1-to-1, ie for Product Output of 300, Ingredient Input is also 300.

After running Actual Costing for the current Period we can see that a Cost has been calculated for the Ingredient Item in a given Cost Component Class.

However when we look at the Actual Cost Transactions View for the Product, we see a much smaller value being used in calculating the Product's value in that same Component Class.

Why is the Ingredient Cost not being used in its entirety?
