Check Order Types for Process Orders

Here you check the control paramters for the

order types . Order types are client-dependent: they can be used in all controlling areas and plants.

The following parameters are relevant for process orders:

Process orders have the order category 40.
The order categories are predefined in the R/3 system and characterize the technical attributes of the orders. For example, the order category determines what transactions can be used to process an order.
You can specify whether partner information is retained with allocations between orders and other CO objects (cost centers, projects, etc.), and whether for each order a record is written.
You can specify that the orders of this order type are classified. This is a requirement for Order selection and summarization in the information system, for example.
You can also classify orders after they have been created.
You must specify for each order type whether you want to use commitment management.
In the settlement profile , you specify the objects to which orders of this order type can settle. (You do not have to assign a settlement profile to an order type immediately - you can also do this later.)
This specifies how long the completed orders remain in the system before they are archived.
You must assign each order type to a number range.
An order can pass through a number of different statuses. The status controls what business transactions are allowed on the order.
A detailed description of the different possibilities in status management can be found in the Extended Help under Internal orders (Extended Help can only be called up in the application).


1. Check whether the supplied order types meet your requirements.
2. New order types should be defined in conjunction with the project team for production planning in the process industry.
