Cost objects are units to which costs can be assigned according to how they were caused using the functions of Cost Object Controlling.
The costs incurred in a company can be assigned to the following cost objects:
Product cost collectors
You use product cost collectors in the Product Cost by Period component. You can use product cost collectors in make-to-stock production and in mass production on the basis of sales orders if you are using a valuated sales order stock in sales-order-related production.

Cost object hierarchies and their cost object nodes
You use cost object hierarchies in Product Cost by Period. You can use cost object hierarchies in make-to-stock production and in sales-order-related production if you are using a valuated sales order stock.
Manufacturing orders ( production orders or process orders)
If you are using manufacturing orders as cost objects, you normally use the functions of the Product Cost by Order component. You can use manufacturing orders as cost objects both in make-to-stock production and in sales-order-related production.
Sales document items (items in inquiries, quotations, or sales orders) (see also: Sales Order Item That Carries Costs and Revenues)
If you are using a sales document item as a cost object, you use the functions of the Product Cost by Sales Order component.
General cost objects
General cost objects can be used in the Costs for Intangible Goods and Services component.
