Click Production control > Setup > Production > Production groups.

Use this form to create a production group, and then configure an accounting rule for the group. Accounting rules determine the general ledger accounts that orders are posted to, and how costs are calculated. When you assign a production order to a production group, the order is posted to the general ledger according to the criteria that you define for the group. By default, an accounting rule is applied to all orders in the production group.

NoteNote

You can specify how to post a specific production order, even when the order is assigned to a production group. Select a value in the Ledger field.
