Background documentationCost Object Controlling: Make-to-Stock Production Locate this document in the navigation structure


In make-to-stock production, you can use Cost Object Controlling as follows:

  • Product Cost by Order

    You can manage your costs at the level of production orders and process orders. You can analyze cumulative costs or period costs.

  • Product Cost by Period

    You can manage your costs by period at the level of product cost collectors. You can create product cost collectors for run schedule headers, for the combination material / production version at plant level, or only for materials at plant level.

    You can also use cost object hierarchies for cost management when you have costs that cannot easily be assigned to particular orders, product cost collectors, production versions, or materials. You can also use cost object hierarchies in conjunction with production orders or process orders.
