To clarify RA key


I got this sentence about Result Analysis.

"R.A key is just like capitalzation key, which capitalise The WIP .Cost carrier is RA type cost element, which sucks the open production order value(normally at the time of period end closing) and put them on balance sheet till it is closed ."

Can anyone explain further of what does it mean with simple example?

    Dear Newphama,

    This basically means that by assigning an RA key a production order
    becomes relevant for the WIP calculation.

    Depending on the production order status the WIP is created or cancelled
    and both, creation and cancellation values, are settled to the WIP
    account in FI.

    The WIP value is typically just the actual order balance for a normal
    production order.

    I hope this helps.

    Best Regards,
