Product costing in Anaplan
I am just about to start a new project where the idea is to build a full product costing, with complete BOM and routing in Anaplan. I have a pretty good idead of how to do this, but it would be great to get some input from you guys before I actually start building. There is one thing which I think will be a bit more challenging, which is related to BOMs. It has to do with the fact that some raw material, let's assume steel in this case, is used in multiple products, which makes it impossible to use the build in Anaplan hierarchy, since many products can obviously have steel as a component. Then I would need to add steel multiple times (one time for each product) which wouldn't be ideal since it would mean that I would have to maintain the raw material steel in multiple places in my model (perhaps not an issue with steel, but other more complex raw material will need maintenance)
Also, another question: A final product might have a semi-finished good as a component, and I am not really sure how to incorporate that into the full BOM. What I want to achieve in the end is that you can look at "product A" and see all raw materials as well as the semi-finished goods used for that product, and then be able to click on the semi-finished good and see the raw materials and semi-finished goods for that one an so on...
Any input or suggestions are highly appreciated, thanks a lot in advance!
