Assignment of Order Category to Order Type


Good morning!

Question regarding Order Category assignment:

I am in the following path location in SPRO:

Plant Maintenance and Customer Service->Maintenance and Service Processing->Maintenance and Service Orders->Functions and Settings for Order Types->Define Change Docs, Collective Purc. Req. Indicator, Operation No. Interval

Looking at this configuration, I noticed that our Order Category values are not consistent. (you can view Order Category by clicking on the 'print' button once configuration screen is open - view name is V_T399X_S).

Possible entries for Order Category are the following:

01 Internal Order (Controlling)

02 Accrual Calculation Order (Controlling)

03 Model Order (Controlling)

04 CO Production Order

05 Product Cost Collector

06 QM Order

10 PP Production Order

20 Network

30 Maintenance order

40 Process Order

50 Inspection Lot

60 Personnel Order

70 Shipping deadlines

I would assume that all of my PM order type should have category assignment of 30. However, some of my PM order types hold no assignment. Can someone explain the following two points:

1. Where in SPRO is Order Category assigned to Order Type

2. What is the purpose of Order Category.

Thank you very much in advance!
