Order settlement to G/L instead of Cost Centre.


Dear All,

My client has following scenario:

1. Cost centers are created as sections of the plant.

2. G/Ls are created with respect to activity (i.e normal consumption, project consumption, turnaround consumption).

In general maintenance order is settled to cost center that is copied from equipment master to order settlement rule. But, in above scenario cost should be settled to combination of "Cost Center + G/L" i.e. if mechanical section creates an order for any of the above said activities, the order should be settled to mechanical cost center and respective G/L account.

"One way around to this issue can be accomplished by settling the order directly to G/L defined in combination with section and activity."

Is this a correct practice if we settle maintenance order directly to G/L and do not use cost centers?

Your expert opinions and any other solution if you can suggest in this regard will be very helpful.
