Basically there are two types of materials.

1. Direct or stock materials

2. Indirect or non-stock materials.

For direct materials we will be maintaining G/L accounts, so we will be giving G/L account or account assignment category for Goods Movements.

Whenever Goods Movement happened it will update the G/L account of that perticular material but when it comes to Indirect materials, these will be used with cost centre. So we need to maintain the account assignment category for the Indirect items

You can details differences between the use of G/L accounts and account assignment category when you read the Types of materials.
