My approach may not be the most efficient way of doing things, but I have
written query/400 that writes to a query work file what the standard costs
are for particular items in a particular facility ... separate data work area
member by facility, then do a report that compares the output, and only
prints when the costs are different, and sequences it by item type & class,
because in some categories the costs are supposed to be different.

I also have a similar configuration in which I match up what the total of all
the cost buckets are with what is actually in cost bucket zero.  I have found
some BPCS programs that do the math wrong & rather than identify & fix all
the programs & not know if I got them all (some of those programs are rather
monstrous), I have written a program which I call COST REORGANIZATION which
recalculates cost bucket zero, for those items identified as having problems.

I got into this when I discovered that some costs in the cost master are
negative.

There's been lots of discussion of this kind of thing on BPCS_L.

We run CST600 very regularly then I go into the spool file & F14 looking for
period in position 120, which reveals only the lines that have a cost change.

I also modified CST900 process to capture costs on orders about to be purged,
then compare after the purge to see how much the actual costs have shifted.
