    Go to SPRO --Controlling-Internal Orders-Actual Postings-Settlement-Maintain Settlement Profiles

    and read documentation there after that if any doubts then please come back with specific query.

    An account assignment proposal must be maintained in the settlement profile (for example, cost center, profitability segment)

    The receiver object must already exist on the database (for example, a service order is created with Transaction "Create sales order"; the service order should settle to the SD order).

    Also Please do search on SDN you will get the all details, refer the below link for same.

    You can see the settlement profile in

    IMG_-> Controlling --> Product Cost Controlling >Cost Object Controlling> Product Cost by Order -->Period-End Closing > Settlement> Create Settlement profile

    Based on the allocation structure ,PA structure & the setting in Settlement profile, the settlement is carried out for production.

    IN ORder type customizing- OPJH, The settlement profile is assigned

    Based on settlement profile, You can maintain the Receiver, whether its order or cost center....

    Dear All the costs or revenues which are collected in the Production order or Sales order for example have to be settled to a receiver at the end of the period. This receiver could be a Gl account, a cost center, profitability analysis or asset.

    In order to settle the costs of the production order or sales order a settlement profile is needed. In a settlement profile you define a range of control parameters for settlement. You must define the settlement profile before you can enter a settlement rule for a sender. The Settlement Profile is maintained in the Order Type and defaults during creating of order.

    Settlement profile includes:

    The retention period for the settlement documents.

    Valid receivers GL account, cost center, order, WBS element, fixed asset, material, profitability segment, sales order, cost objects, order items, business process.

    Document type is also attached here.

    Allocation structure and PA transfer structure is also attached to the settlement profile.

    If you donu2019t specify in the settlement profile for the production order that the variances are not transferred from the production order into CO-PA, you will settle the variances to CO-PA twice: once from the production order (broken down into variance categories), and once from the sales order item.

    Check KOALfor settlement profiles and In KOT2 settlement profile is assgned to Order type here you can check already created settlement profiles.

    What is this settlement profile

    Settlement Profile is nothing but a group of control parameters for production order settelment for cost /control of the product .Basically , it determines :

    1.Whether you want periodic settlement or full settlement ??

    2.What is the distribution Rule

    3.What is the allocation structure

    4.What is the settlement receivers

    Now , this has to be created: SPRO > Controlling > Product Cost Controlling > Product cost by Order > Period End Closing > Settlement > Create Settlement Profile .

    At the same time , as system cannot maintain the settlement parameters during settlement to a receiver, this the settlement profile should be assinged in the order type in OPJH -Maintain Production Order Type .

    Hope this is clear
