An order type contains control information that you need for managing orders. You have to assign every order to an order type.

The order category = 10, for production order. The order categories are predefined in the SAP System and characterize the technical properties of the orders. Other order categories are, for example, process order and network.

The following settings are defined at plant level.

With the order type, you define the following:

CO (Controlling) - how it is handled -You can specify whether a totals record is to be written per order if a CO partner object (for example, a cost center) is assigned to an order of this order type.

Order classification - Here, you specify whether orders of this order type are to be taken into account in classification for order summarization and the order selection.

Status management - Is there any user status active? is defined here.

Planning - Master data

Production version and Routing selection

Here, you define the data that influences master data selection or order master data maintenance: You can decide whether production versions are selected automatically or manually.

The task list application is predefined as 'P'. However, you can also specify an additional task list application. The routing selection ID defines, for example, the ranking order for routing selection. Routing selection defines whether routings are to be selected and if so, how (manually or automatically) and whether reference operation sets can also be selected. Alternative sequences and sequence exchange define whether alternative sequences are permitted and how the sequences are to be exchanged. The task list type defines which routing type is permitted for production orders. Routing text defines that the text from the routing header is copied into the order.

BOM application defines how the BOM alternatives are to be automatically selected.

Search procedure defines how batch determination is to take place.


Substitute MRP controller/substitute production scheduler are proposed when you create production orders if an MRP controller or production scheduler are not specified in the material master, or if there is no reference to material.

Reservation/Purch. req. specifies whether certain order objects (operation, components) are relevant to MRP.

Collective purch.req. enables collective purchase requisition per order for externally processed operations or non-stock items.

Inspection type defines how a quality inspection is to be carried out.

Status change documents - Here, you define whether you want change documents to be written if a status change occurs. You also define the level at which the change documents are to be written.

A status change document contains the following:

- which status has been changed

- who changed the status

- whether the status has been activated or deactivated the transaction in which the status change has been carried out

In the production order , you can define the status at the following levels:

- order header level

- -operation level

- material component level

- production resource/tool level

Status change documents can also be defined independently of each other, at each of these four levels.

If you have defined these parameters such that status change documents are written for a particular order level, the SAP System only writes a status change document for a status change from this point in time if the order (or operation/component/PRT) has been created since the status change documents have been activated.

Shop Floor Information System (infrastructure data updation)

You can specify, for example, whether order data is to be stored in the Shop Floor Information System. You can carry out reports using this system, for example, for materials, orders and work centers.

Documentation of goods movements

Here, you can specify that goods movements are to be documented with reference to an order. Then you can display goods movements, for example, using the order information system.

You can enter a profile for displaying documented goods movements on the tab page "Display profiles".


PDC active allows data to be exchanged with a PDC system.


Workflow for PO chg. defines that a workflow is generated when quantities or dates that affect existing purchase orders are changed in the order. In addition, a default rule for the split is displayed on this screen. So that this indicator is also valid for production orders the appropriate settings must be made in Customizing for the Project System.

Progress determination in orders

You can determine that progress values are calculated for order progress reports.


Here, you define the parameters relevant to controlling, such as, for example, costing variants for planned and actual costs and a results analysis key.

- Distribution rule

- Default (distribution) rule defines an automatically generated distribution rule for CO settlement.

Display profiles

- Collective order display

- Graphics profile defines how the collective order is to be displayed.


Here, you define parameters for displaying graphics of operations and sequences in the order.

Missing parts list

- defines how the missing parts list is to be displayed.

Documentation of goods movements

Goods movements defines which profile is used for displaying documented goods movements.

There are so many order types but depending on the context we use different orders, I can explain few, with details

1) PP01 Standard production order as the name itself says it is standard and can be used for all prod orders in discrete manufacturing, the order Numbers are system generated automatically.

2) PP02 Standard production order but with external Numbering. Ex usually used for subcontracting work.

3) PP03 PP production order Internal numbering used for Rework.( If the mqanufacured goods defective and if ordered for rework.

4) PP04 Production order used for Assembly order

5) PP05 Prod order for Replenishment in Kanban Process

6) PP06 PP prod order generally used for Repetitive manufacturing

7) PPc1 ordr type for costing

😎 Pk1 PP prod order for Kanban

9) PPQM Std prod order used with Quality Management
