Check Order Types for PP and CO Production Orders

Here you check the control parameters for the

order types . The order type depends on the client. That is, any order type can be used in any controlling area and plant.

The following parameters are relevant to the production order:

Production orders in the Production Planning module have the order category 10.
Production orders without a quantity structure have the order category 04.
The order categories are predefined in the standard system. They characterize the technical attributes of your orders. For example, the order category determines the functions you can use when processing an order.
When allocating costs between orders and other CO objects (such as cost centers or projects), you can specify that the partner information should be recorded and that the system is to write a totals record for each order.
You can specify that orders of this order type are to be classified. This is, for example, a requirement in Order selection and summarization in the information system.
You can also classify orders later, after they have been created.
You must activate the commitments management function explicitly for each order type.
In the settlement profile you specify the settlement receivers for this order type. You can also assign a settlement profile to an order type at a later time.
Here you define how long your orders are to remain in the system before they are archived.
You must assign each order type to a number range.
An order can have several statuses. The order status controls which business transactions are allowed on the order.
For a detailed description of the different status management options, see the Extended Help under Internal Orders . (Extended Help can only be accessed from the application.)

For production orders without a quantity structure, you can also set the following parameters:

The field attributes define the fields of an order as display fields, input fields, or hidden fields. For more information, see the Implementation Guide for Overhead cost orders.
This defines such things as what
costing variant appears as a default in preliminary costing .


1. Check the supplied order types to see if they meet your requirements.
2. If necessary, contact the project team for production orders or overhead cost orders and define new order types jointly.
