'ActType.Proc.' (PAD011-LARN1) and 'Alt. activity descr.' (RC68A-ACTXKT) values are different.
In 'Alt. activity descr.' field, options will be selected from the drop down list. If you select Activity Type Text, then next column Activity Type will be enabled to select the Activities defined.
Activity Type & ActType.Proc are of same kind.
ActType.Proc will be used in case of single activity per work center.
Activity type in Activity overview block will be used in case of multiple activities per work center.
Whether you assigning single activity or multiple activities per work center, it wont be any problem.
For example, there is work center called Electricians. People under that category will do many activities like plumbing, drilling, etc.,
Even Activity based pricing will be different for each activity. But the cost centers can be single for electricians. In that case, if you define the Activities in overview block, only one work center definition will be enough. But correct activity should be selected in Maintenance Order.
Else you have to define the work center for each activity & assign the activity type in ActType.Proc field. In that case, based on the operation, correct work center should be selected.
