Define Default Values for Order Types

In this step you define the default values for the production cost collectors for each plant and order type.

The default rule determines how a rule for settlement is created.

For production cost collectors, settlement is always carried out by period. With periodic settlement, the work in process and variances are reported on the basis of the quantities confirmed and delivered during the period. The default rule is PP2 (periodic settlement).
For production cost collectors and orders that are assigned to a cost object hierarchy, settlement must always be periodic.
For more information on orders in a cost object hierarchy, see Define cost object categories for cost object hierarchies.

You also specify the following:

The results analysis key controls the calculation of work in process for run schedule headers for which reporting point quantities were entered.
You only need to specify the results analysis key if you have defined in the repetitive manufacturing profile that reporting point quantities can be entered.
This costing variant determines what costing type and valuation variant is used in the version-specific cost estimate. A separate version-specific cost estimate is created for each run schedule header. The version-specific cost estimate is mainly used to determine the activity quantities for the confirmation. It can also be used for the valuation of work in process and scrap, as well as for variance calculation and distribution.
You only need to specify this costing variant if you have specified in the repetitive manufacturing profile that:
The valuation variant selected through the costing variant is displayed for informational purposes. The valuation variant determines how the material costs and internal activities in this cost estimate are valuated. The quantity structure for this cost estimate is created from the data in the production version.
The costing variant (simultaneous costing) determines what valuation variant is used if according to the repetitive manufacturing profile the confirmed activities are valuated.
You only need to specify the costing variant if you defined in the repetitive manufacturing profile that the internal activities are to be valuated. Depending on the repetitive manufacturing profile, the activity quantities can be determined in the following ways:
The valuation variant selected through the costing variant is displayed for informational purposes. The valuation variant determines the following:

Requirements

If you want to define your own costing variants, valuation variants, and results analysis keys, you must already have carried out the following steps:

To determine whether you must specify a costing variant or a results analysis key, carry out Check confirmation data for repetitive manufacturing profiles

Standard settings

The standard system contains the following default values for cost object controlling with repetitive manufacturing in plant 100:

OrdT DRul PreC SimC
RM01 PP2 PREM PPP3

Actions

Specify the default values in accordance with your requirements.

Further notes

If you want to work with run schedule headers and production cost collectors, you should also check to be sure that the Order management indicator is set for each fiscal year in the controlling area.
