Key that controls variance calculation.
Variances can only be calculated for the orders for which a variance key has been entered. This key is defaulted through the costing view in the material master record.
- If the costs collected at hierarchy level are distributed to the assigned orders (product cost collectors or manufacturing orders), you must enter a variance key in each order so that the R/3 System can calculate variances for the assigned orders.
- If the costs collected at the hierarchy level are settled as price differences, you must store a variance key in the cost object nodes and calculate variances for the entire cost object hierarchy.
You select the control parameters for variance calculation through the variance key in the order or in the cost object hierarchy and a target version.

If you assign a variance key to a plant, this variance key is transferred to the material master record when you create a costing view for a material.
If you want to change the variance key for existing materials according to the assignment you make, you can use the SAPMKKS1 report:

By assigning a variance key to a plant, you ensure that this variance key is transferred when you create a costing view for the material master record of a material.
To change the variance keys of existing materials according to the assignment made here, use the Program SAPMKKS1:
