Difference between type of Secondary Cost Element Category?

Hi,

I checked the system, and during the secondary cost element (CE) creation, I can select some of the CE category as follows:

21 Internal settlement

31 Order/project results analysis

41 Overheads

42 Assessment

43 Internal activity allocation

50 Project-related incoming orders: Sales

51 Project-related incoming orders: Other

52 Project-related incoming orders: Costs

61 Earned value

My question, what kind of report that I can read entries with these kind of CE?

Reason: I want to check what has been posted to these secondary CE.

Or

Could anyone explain the use of above-mentioned CE category in brief?

Thanks.

    Cost element that is used to allocate costs for internal activities.

    Most often used categories are

    21 Internal settlement

    (When ever an order is settled e.g internal order settling to cost center through this type of cost elements)

    31 Order/project results analysis

    (WIP in production orders are calculated and posted using this category)

    41 Overheads

    (Used in costing sheet to do an overhead allocation)

    42 Assessment

    (whenever cost is allocated between cost centers through allocation method - Assessment)

    43 Internal activity allocation

    (found in production orders when a routing activity is confimed the charge goes to the production order through this cost element)
