      Dear Devraj,

      As per your sap help regarding Sales Order Costing which is mentioned requirement class 40 and costing is required which is assigned with requirement type KE. This sales order costing help file I have studied before which I have not able to clear myself after reading this document. In our business scenario variant config is used. for variant configuration requirment class will be different. Suppose if I want to change account assignment category as C which is for Sales Order to make SO as CO object. How can I put C(Sales Order) as account assignment category under this requirement class because C does not appear in drop down list box. Even I cannot find new creation of Requirement Class from Product costing - Product Cost By Sales Order. The drop down list box shows very limited account assignment categories under Account Assignment Category master.

      Even if I choose other requirement class for configuratble material, I am not able to change from given existing account assignment category to C for Sales Order. How I can change ?

      Best Regards,

    Its a business call whether to use sales order cost as a cost object or not, so try to find out from them whether the sales order should be manually costed or automatically costed or automatically costed and marked

    does the sales order item changes sometimes, if not use automatically costed and mark it, if not use manually costing

    If it is variant configuration use requirement class 46

    • hi

      since SAP has given the standard requirement class, it does not mean that u should not customize as u require it, u can use the same Acct assignment category, and change consumption posting form blank to E( accounting via sales order), its not an issue, whether a sales order is linked with how many production orders, if a production order is created with reference to sales order.

      i dont about C appearing in Acct assignment category, but u can use M also but make changes as required
