In make-to-order production with cost management using a project, all costs and revenues relating to the make-to-order item are collected and allocated to a project in the SAP Project System. The costs are allocated to profitability analysis.


Make-to-order production is controlled by the requirements type. The requirements type is determined on the basis of the MRP group and the strategy group in the material master record.

Up to Release 3.0, the requirements type is determined on the basis of the item category. For this reason, special item categories are used up to Release 3.0 for controlling make-to-order production. To carry out make-to-order production for a material with cost management using the project, you must maintain the following fields in the material master:


MRP Group


Strategy Group



In addition, a plant must be assigned for make-to-order items in the sales order.
