A devaluation indicator representing the number of years a material has already been classed as "slow or non-moving".


The devaluation indicator determines the percentage by which the value of a material is reduced. It allows the results from previous years to be taken into account when the "lowest value" of a material is determined on the basis of whether it is slow/non-moving. The devaluation indicator is:

  • increased by 1 if the material is slow or non-moving
  • set to 0 if the material is medium or fast-moving

You define the percentage reductions for the devaluation indicator in MM Customizing (Valuation).
