Production Order Settlement - Settlement Cost Element

I have a n; eed to settle costs that have been collect on a production order to a particular settlement cost element account.

During settlement of the production order, which is setup to settle to an internal order, the need is to have the orignal cost element that charged the production order to be credited and the expected cost element to be debited. The goal is to have the ability to differenciate on the G/L production activity for internal manufacturing from billable Production activity.

The following are the desired postings:

Production Order Actual Posting:

Material : Credit Inventory, debit material consumption

Labor: Credit cost center, debit labor consumption

Overhead: Credit cost center, debit overhead consumption

Production Order Settlement to Internal Order:

Material : Credit material consumption, debit settlement cost element

Labor: Credit labor consumption, debit settlement cost element

Overhead: Credit overhead consumption , debit settlement cost

To achieve this we have created an allocation rule and defined the settlement cost element for receiver category ORD. However, neither of the standard options producted the above postings. Instead, either the original cost element or the settlement cost element is credited.

Is it possible to configur the system or implement User Exits/Bapi/ Badi to do the above postings?
