What is the criteria to include a Material Ledger document in a folder in CKM3?

During the material ledger update, the system collects data from valuation-relevant transactions such as goods receipts, invoice receipts, and settlement of production orders.
This data is collected in different Categories in the Material Ledger in accordance with the material update structure.

The influence that these transactions have on the valuation price upon material price determination depends on the category to which they were assigned.
The following categories are available:

  • Receipts
  • Consumption
  • Other Receipts/Consumption

A receipt always effects the valuation price.
In the standard setup, the categories are defined in material update structure 0001 

The Original Process Category can be found in the Material Ledger document (Material Update button) and depends not only on the movement type but also on different characteristics.
The Material Ledger documents will be classified in CKM3 (Price Determination Structure view) in different folders: Procurement, Production, Stock Transfer, and so on.
