Estimate calculation different than Part Cost

I have noticed an issue regarding the Estimating module that I do not understand. It appears that when bringing in an Existing Inventory Part and running a Calculate on the Estimate, the unit cost does not match the Part Cost in IFS. Sometimes it is off a few cents, others it can be more than $1. 

Below is a screen shot of a single Routing Op step part, in a single Site, with a basic Product Structure. 

Running Calculate on the Estimate shows a difference in the total cost:

The Routing and Product Structures all match in the Estimate. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

After review, there were discrepancies as the Est module pulls existing SFPP prices, not cost of existing PNs.
