If you want to include costs in some report or query,
I suggest accessing either bucket 0 of CMF or summary story in CIC.

There are a lot of fields in BPCS files that sound like they might contain 
useful data.
DSPFFD & file name can get you a layout.
RUNQRY *N & file name will show you which fields are actually populated.

If you are looking at IACST field on INV300 ... this is NOT coming from IIM
rather, there is a called program CST590 which gets the data from CMF

We use costing by facility.
CIC is like an IIM item master by facility.

When we do a CST600 cost roll-up, CIC drives which CMF is updated & CIC gets 
populated with the OLD summary, which means that instead of doing a scan on 
the audit trail to find lines with changes, you could do a comparison of CMF 
bucket 0 with CIC summary, right after CST600 to see what just changed in the 
standard costs.

We only roll up standard costs, but a company might be doing CST500 or some 
other CST program on actual costs.

In addition to the starting points in my last post, do not forget the 
archives of this list, as similar topics have come up before.
