The production cost collector serves to collect the actual costs incurred per period and to bill this to the produced materialís balance sheet account . The differences calculated can be regularly billed to the profitability segment for the material produced.

Make sure that when you change the repetitive manufacturing profile or cost collector you also maintain all the necessary steps the system requires to find the cost collector.
