Further Notes: Sales-Order-Relation Production

Goods movements take place through the sales order stock if the entry in the Special stock field is "E" (order stock).
In sales-order-related production, goods movements should take place through the sales order inventory.
Collecting costs and revenues on the sales order item is allowed when the entry in the Consumption posting field is "E" (settlement through sales order).
Collecting costs and revenues on the sales order item is recommended in complex make-to-order production.
In the standard system, the account assignment category is "E" (individual customer requirements with KD-CO).
In the standard system, the account assignment category is "M" (individual customer requirements without KD-CO).

You specify whether the sales order inventory is valuated or nonvaluated in the requirements class with the Valuation indicator.

If you use a nonvaluated sales order stock, you always flag the sales document item as carrying costs and revenues because otherwise it is not possible to valuate your inventories.

You can also carry materials from make-to-stock production in a sales order item that carries costs and revenues. This is recommended for replacement parts that are delivered for a material of the sales order stock and are withdrawn from the non-customer inventory. Here you enter "E" in the consumption posting field (settlement through sales order). In the standard system the account assignment category is "B".

The other entries are not used for Cost Object Controlling.

If you want to use sales orders, you should also check whether the Sales documents indicator is turned on for each fiscal year in the controlling area.
