There is no 'one' answer to that. Different customers have used different depreciation keys based on their particular needs. SAP comes with country specific charts of depreciation that include the depreciation keys that meet the specific country requirements. The list of depreciation keys is long. Based on the requirements of your customer you need to go to that list and choose the depreciation key that should be used.

You should be able to match up the your customer's requirements to the available depreciation key. If needed you can copy some of the delivered keys and make changes to them -- for example if you need to change the period control methods that are assigned.

It is not feasible for you to expect the folks here to provide you with those answers.
